Opel, the German manufacturer for automobiles introduced the Opel Frontera in late 1991. Originally launched by Isuzu, Opel also took on the Frontera due to its popularity. There was a total of two generations that Opel saw of the Frontera and it was discontinued in 2004. However, during those 13 years, owners and technicians would service their vehicles with an Opel Frontera service manual. And, to this day, these service manuals can come in handy when servicing a Frontera or similar body style such as Isuzu MU or the Chevrolet Frontera.
During the 13 years of production, the Opel Frontera saw a few minor revisions as a way to enhance the vehicle. The mid-sized SUV was offered in a number of different engine options as well as both three-door and five-door body styles. With two different versions, sport and traditional, Opel was able to market to both small and large families.
The first generation of the Opel Frontera had a choice of engines including a 2.4-liter petrol or a 2.3-liter diesel engine. However, the sport option had a 2.0-liter petrol engine. During 1995, four years after the Frontera was introduced, the model underwent a facelift. The facelift included the addition of rear coil springs and a new engine lineup. Updated trim and a better diesel engine were made available.
As the second generation was introduced by Opel, the Frontera did an interior trim revision which included the dashboard. Opel Frontera buyers were impressed with the slight changes that were being implemented.
Because the body style was so popular, Opel was one of many manufacturers who rebadged the Isuzu MU original model. Throughout the years, different countries rebranded the vehicle. Opel along with Honda, Vauxhall, Holden, and Chevrolet all followed in Isuzuís steps by implementing the Frontera model into their production line up.
The Americas saw the Isuzu model while European countries saw the Opel Frontera model. Australia saw a very similar version to Opelís, but it was titled the Holden Frontera. While these vehicles are no longer in production, they are still scattered throughout the world. Whether the Opel Frontera is badged as a Honda Jazz or an Isuzu MU, the body style is almost completely the same. Technicians can service these vehicles regularly so that they remain in good shape for years to come. Opel Frontera workshop manuals allow technicians and owners to achieve a good working vehicle.
