: Isn't 95 & 96 a little faster in terms of 0-60 despite its smaller displacement?
: I would get the 95 or 96 because they are easier to modify. I had a 97 and had hell of a time trying to look for parts for it.
The 95 was the only year in the U.S. with the smaller displacement motor. The 96 was a 3.2 liter. The 3.2's are probably a little faster due to a broader torque band, but the 95's can be made faster through modification. The 96+ OBD-II cars are more difficult and expensive to modify. The 96+ cars also had some suspension refinements, and a different climate control system.
: I may be wrong but wasn't the MSRP for 95 cheaper than 97?
Yes, the 95's were the cheapest.
