The 1980s
Main Chronological Archives

The "Dark Ages" that began in the 1970s continue through the beginning of the decade as the automobile industry shifts from a hodge podge of vacuum operated gadgets and carburetion to fuel injection & electronics. This decade would see the overall shape of the automobile as we know it today take shape: the unibody front wheel drive minivan debuts as sedans and coupes shift to the layout as well, composite headlights and body color bumpers replace chrome bezels and chrome & rubber bumpers, and the SUV would go from farm vehicle to family vehicle with the S-10 based Chevy Blazer and Jeep Cherokee XJ.
