About Chevrolet Caprice
The Chevrolet Caprice is a full-sized automobile that was manufactured by Chevrolet in North America between the model years of 1965 and 1996 under the Caprice nameplate. In 1965, full-size Chevrolets accounted for more than a million of Chevrolet’s total sales. In the 1960s and early 1970s, when it was still in production, the Biscayne, the Bel Air, and the Impala all competed with it to see who could sell the most units in the United States.
Chevrolet offered a full line of Caprice models for the 1966 model year and subsequent model years. These models included a “formal hardtop” coupe as well as an Estate station wagon. The Caprice name was first introduced in the middle of 1965 as a luxury trim package for the Impala four-door hardtop. The largest Chevrolets ever manufactured were the models produced from 1971 to 1976. The award for “Motor Trend Car of the Year” went to both the downsized 1977 model and the redesigned 1991 model. 1996 was the final year of production.
The Caprice nameplate was brought back to North America in 2011 as a full-size, rear-wheel-drive police vehicle. This vehicle was a captive import from Australia and was manufactured by Holden, a subsidiary of General Motors. The police vehicle is a rebadged version of the Holden WM/WN Caprice. Production of this vehicle ended in 2017. From 1999 until 2017, the imported Holden Statesman/Caprice built by Holden was marketed as the Chevrolet Caprice in markets such as the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia. The nameplate also had a presence in the Middle East, both for civilian and police use during that time period.
There are a few different theories concerning where the name Caprice came from. One theory suggests that it was first used by Chevrolet’s General Sales Manager, Bob Lund, and that he named it after a posh restaurant that he frequently visited in New York City. One source claims that the vehicle was named after Caprice Chapman, the daughter of auto executive James P. Chapman, who inspired the design of the vehicle.
