 Introduced in 1990 as an early 91 model, the Chevy Caprice was a major change in styling over the boxy model it replaced. The Caprice had only one competitor in the police car market now, it was the Ford Crown Victoria. The Dodge Diplomat and Plymouth Gran Fury went out of production in 1989. New for the 1991 Caprice was a driver's airbag, anti-lock brakes, as well as the new styling. The chassis and powertrain were carry-overs from the 1990 model. For the model year 1991, 60 percent of the police cars sold in the U.S. were Chevrolets. The 91 Caprices were available with a 5.0 litre V-8 engine with 170
     hp for city patrols (such as NYPD's precint cars) or with a 5.7 litre V-8 at 195 hp for pursuit work. Most  departments opted for the faster 5.7 litre. The 91 thru 96 Caprice had slight sheetmetal changes over its 6 years. The 91 Caprice had closed rear wheel well and its b and c pillars were black. For 92 the body stayed the same but the b and c pillars were now painted the same color as the body of the  car. Changes for 1993 were open rear wheel wells, new tail lights, and
  CHEVROLET printed on the front grill. The body was unchange for 94, but on  wheel covers became optional and the LT1 engine was new. This new LT1 engine, which borrowed technology from the Corvette LT1 engine, gave the best police car perfermance since the big block engines of the 1970's. For 1995, the car received a minor styling change, it had the rear roof pillar rounded off. Each year saw the Caprice improve its performance. It fact the 94 Caprice far out performed the Ford police cars , including the 93 Mustang (its last year as a police car) .
