Introducing the 1974 Caprice Classic: And it’s so much better with ’74 Chevrolet
Introducing the Caprice Classic, for people who think driving is something the car should do.
Here is luxury and comfort asking to be enjoyed. Outside: a distinctive new roof line, on the Coupe, and an imposing new grille. Inside: peace, quiet, and convenience.
Power steering, power front disc brakes, and Turbo Hydra-matic transmission are standard. Why look any higher?
Now that’s more like it. The new 1977 Caprice Classic sedan
A whole new car, a whole new ball game.
- More mileage
- More efficient
- More head room
- More rear leg room
- More trunk room
- More manageable in city traffic
- More beauty
The New ’78 Chevrolet Caprice. Now that’s more like it.
Compared to the 1976 full-size Chevys it replaced, The New Chevrolet Caprice has more head room, more rear-seat leg room (see photo at right), more trunk room, more ease of entry and exit, more manageability in city traffic and parking, more corrosion fighters and more fuel economy.
It is also more beautiful. Trim, crisp, in tune with the times. (Shown: ’78 Caprice Classic Coupe)
Is it any wonder, therefore, that more people have been buying more Chevrolet Caprices and Impalas than any other car? (The New Chevrolet is equipped with GM-built engines produced by various divisions. See your dealer for details. )

Now in its second year, The New Chevrolet, compared to the full-size ’76 Chevrolet, continues to give you more:
More miles per gallon. 24 mpg highway, 17 mpg city — EPA estimates with standard 250 Cu. In. L6 engine and automatic transmission.
In California, EPA estimates are lower. (Your mileage depends on how you drive, your car’s condition, where you drive, and your car’s available equipment. Also, The New Chevrolet is equipped with GM-built engines produced by various divisions. See your dealer for details.)
More manageability in city traffic. Reduced overhang, front and rear, plus a shortened turning diameter, make the car noticeably more nimble where space is limited. Parking is easier, too.

You’ve heard of the rocky road to success. Well, that old cliché sure doesn’t fit The New Chevrolet. The ride to the top was swift and sure. It was also smooth and quiet.
A winner on the charts. Within weeks of its introduction, in the autumn of 1976, our new generation full-size car became the best-selling car in America. And its been solidly on top ever since.
“Must be some car,” you say. “You’re so right,” we say. A winner on the road. Owners are giving The New Chevrolet particularly high marks in ease of handling and riding comfort.
Take a ride in one and see. Feel how Full Coil suspension helps flatten out the bumps. And how 16 strategically located rubber body
mounts help muffle road noise and vibration. Let your body bask in the comfort and quiet of The New Chevrolet. Then talk to your Chevrolet dealer about buying or leasing a 1979 Caprice or Impala for your very own. America has driven it to the top.
