Oldsmobile Intrigue

The Oldsmobile Intrigue was a mid-size sedan that was produced by Oldsmobile from 1997 to 2002. It was based on the General Motors W platform and was the successor to the Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme. The Oldsmobile Intrigue was discontinued in 2002. It was replaced by the Oldsmobile Aurora.

Oldsmobile Intrigue Overview

The Oldsmobile Intrigue was a mid-sized sedan produced by the Oldsmobile division of General Motors. It was introduced in 1998 to replace the aging Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme and was in production until 2002 when the entire Oldsmobile brand began its phase-out.

The Intrigue was aimed at the mid-size sedan market segment, competing against vehicles like the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, and the Ford Taurus. It was designed to be both sporty and luxurious, appealing to younger buyers while maintaining the brand’s traditional clientele. The Intrigue boasted a sleeker and more contemporary design compared to many of its Oldsmobile predecessors. Its styling was more subdued and less ornate, aligning with late 1990s tastes.

Initially, the Intrigue came with GM’s 3.8L V6, but it was soon replaced by the 3.5L “Shortstar” V6 — a derivative of the Northstar V8 found in Cadillacs. The 3.5L engine was notable for being both powerful and smooth, offering competitive performance in its segment.

The Intrigue came standard with a decent array of features and offered options such as a sunroof, leather upholstery, and advanced sound systems. Oldsmobile also introduced the GLS trim, which was the most feature-rich and luxury-oriented version of the model.

Oldsmobile Intrigue Sales Figures

The Oldsmobile Intrigue received favorable reviews for its handling, comfort, and the performance of the 3.5L V6 engine. It was often praised as one of the best vehicles Oldsmobile had produced in years. Despite its qualities, the Intrigue’s lifespan was relatively short. As General Motors decided to discontinue the Oldsmobile brand in the early 2000s, the Intrigue ceased production in 2002. While the Intrigue was well-received and considered a competitive entry in the mid-size sedan market, its legacy is somewhat overshadowed by the broader narrative of Oldsmobile’s decline and eventual discontinuation.
