No, there was V6s long before 94. Infact, V6s were fuel injected before the 5.0s were. The V6 was done in 86. 87-93 only offered the base 2.3L, and the 5.0L.

All the way back to '79. Straight sixes a couple of years to boot. The straight sixes were torque monsters (as much as a 6 can be anyways).

Most likely it is a C5 3 speed automatic.

Its not really a good performance transmission. They are basically a C4 with a lock up torque converter.
