1986 Dodge Colt Overview

With the introduction of the 4-door sedan in 1985, the 1986 Dodge Colt drops its 4-door hatchbacks, keeping the 2-door DL and turbo GTS models. The GTS featured the 1.6-liter turbo engine, while the hatches carried a 1.5-liter, 4-cylinder, 68-hp engine. The Premier sedan was available with either the 1.6 or the 1.5. The Vista Wagon was powered by the 2.0-liter, 88-hp I4. All-wheel drive is an option this year on these normally front-wheel drive vehicles.

Though not loaded with much in the way of creature comforts, the all cars held four to five passengers comfortably, though the 2-door hatchback was a bit of a squeeze. Air conditioning and power options were all extras.

The 1987 Colt was affordable and durable. Owners report the engines can be worked hard and never seem to quit. Great gas mileage adds to the attraction. The Colt is also easy to modify and parts are inexpensive. Some complaints exist about its lack of power, particularly when tackling hills.
