If you want to purchase a used Toyota Celica, you need to find out the various trims available and the features included in these models. The Toyota Celica is a compact sports coupe that was first introduced to the US in 1971. The first three generation models were known for their rear-wheel drives, and models sold in the US were powered by the Toyota R series engines. The third generation Celica’s manufactured between 1981 and 1985, were available as convertibles, lift backs and coupes. These vehicles were powered by a 2.4 Liter 22R or 22R-E engine. In 1982 the North American market had another model added to the Celica line up, known as the Celica GT-S. This vehicle had a sportier look with larger wheels and a sports interior. Fourth generation Celica’s were manufactured with front-wheel drive and significant changes to the exterior. The types of fourth generation trims marketed in the US include the 2.0ST, 2.0GT, 2.0 GT-R, 2.0 GT-I 16, 2.0 S, 2.0 GT-S and 2.0ZR. The fourth generation Celica was also available as a lift back in other trims such as the GT-Four and Turbo All-Trac. Over the years the Celica underwent several changes in terms of design and engines used. In the year 1992, most Celica’s included more standard features. Toyota manufactured the Celica to appeal to young auto enthusiasts who wanted more than just an ordinary drive. The more recent models are equipped with four-cylinder DOHC engines that increase fuel efficiency and provide better output at high speeds.
