About Saturn LS1
The Saturn LS1 is part of Saturn's S-series in the mid-size sedan market. Prior to the introduction of the L-series in 2000, General Motors only produced and sold small cars under the Saturn brand. The LS1 engine has generally received good reviews from automotive enthusiasts. It is based on the Z-body platform. The chassis, the Z-body, was developed exclusively by Saturn and had little in common with other General Motors models. It follows the space body concept used on some Pontiac models in the 1980s, and the non-marring side panels are plastic rather than metal.
All LS1 models are equipped with parts like a SOHC LK0/L24 or DOHC LL0 version of the 1.9-liter engine originally developed by the brand. LS1 models are only available with MP2 manual and MP6 automatic transmissions. Externally, the model has a unique wheel arch with a driver-only side mirror. Inside, it had an AM/FM radio with no stereo and lower cloth seats. It did not have optional parts such as air conditioning or cruise control.

The second-generation LS1 was made from 1996 to 1999, and it had a whole new look. The inside was mostly the same as the first generation, and almost nothing changed with the way it worked. The second generation of the LS1, which was redesigned, came out in 1995 and had power lock parts and window parts, power mirror parts, cruise control, and air conditioning. Both cars had fuel tanks that could hold 12.8 gallons, so they could go about 384 miles on a single tank if they drove 20 miles per hour.
It was the only badge in Saturn's mid-size sedan lineup in 2000. The following year, the LS1 and the other two L-series sedans were renamed L100, L200, and L300 and retained their new names until the last car was produced, at which time all L-series models were discontinued.
