Fourth generation (1986–1992)

The last generation Toronado had hidden headlights. But this was the wrong time to made another downsizing. Gas was now below $1.00 instead of $3.00 or more. Now the Toronado's sales declined and there was no such thing as going back. In 1987 the Trofeo was introduced. The airbag was installed inside the Toronado. But it was for the driver only.

Third generation (1979–1985)

The third generation Toronado downsized. Which made the Toronado lose nearly 1,000 pounds. But the car was still heavy. That would mean another downsizing. This was the first Toronado to be a convertible.

Second generation (1971–1978)

The Toronado's new look brought many more buyers. It also looked more like a Eldorado than a Riviera. The Toronado was more bigger than the first generation. But it was 2 inches smaller than the Delta 88. In 1974 the speedometer got the same features that the Toronado had in the first generation. In 1975 power windows became standard. The XS and XSR models came out in 1977. Since the XSR was a prototype only one of them were produced.

First Generation/Origins (1966–1970)

The Toronado was a car never intended for production. But then a few weeks later the Oldsmobile division announced that the Toronado will be in production. Seven years were spent in order to build the Toronado. In 1966 the Toronado won the "The Car of the Year" by Motor Trend. A tire called TFD was made espeically for the Toronado. Brakes were the Toronado's weak spot. The brake drums would overheat after several panic stops. A inprovement was made in 1967. The Toronado could reach 0-60 in 7.5 seconds. It could hit a maximum speed on 135 mph. 40,963 cars were built in 1966.
