What would you like to see from GM

Recommended Posts

Never clueless but smart.

Gas prices are on the rise again and the Colorado sales are behind Tacoma and the Frontier!

So what's clueless?

The notion that the Colorado/Canyon are competitive vehicles.

See sig. :AH-HA_wink:

Oh, there will not be a production-ready Camaro coupe this show season. Sorry Z, but that comes directly from the Fbodfather himself.

What about a Concept Camaro Convertible...Its bound to happen, but probably won't be for another year or so.

It looks good from what I've seen posted lately that we may see it this year at NAIAS.

I have seen quite a few V8 powered rear drive cars that GM makes for other world markets such as the Holden Ute SS and the United Emirates Chevrolet Carprice that I would like to see built and marketed in North America. Chrysler has made a nice come-back with their 300s and Chargers in this arena, and Ford now dominates fleet vehicle sales with their Crown Vic Police Interceptors. Oh, and yes, I'd love to see a little pony car in the way of the next generation F-body return to American roads.

ya know, looking at camino's avatar gave me an idea. I would absolutely love an El Camino return. My father had one when i was younger and I loved it. I dont remember what year it was but it was the Malibu front end with the double stacked square headlights. Damn that was good looking!!!!!

I miss that car,... truck, er whatever. :rolleyes:

How about this... what would you like to see from Gm within 10 years?

1. A car & truck lineup that is about 70% RWD & 20% AWD/4WD

2. Hydrogen powered production cars

3. The leaches that we call SATURN & SAAB dead or sold

Well, the way Saturn is looking, they might actually stick around. The new Aura is at least pleasing to the eyes. But then again it my be a big turd as far as performance goes.

...as for this auto show season, I'd like to see the following pie-in-the-sky items:

2.) A concept showing the next Cadillac design theme, similar in testicular fortitude to A&S circa '99

3.) A few concepts taking a stab at Pontiac's future direction

4.) A feasible hydrogen-powered concept showng further progress in affordability and practicality

5.) Absolutely no hint of the future styling of the Impala. Surprise me.

6.) A magical agreement between the US Government, UAW, and Big 3 to ease pensions and labor costs while providing sustainable economic relief to the communities which depend on the current wage structure.

but most importantly:

1.) The return of the American sedan as a dominant force to be reckoned with - including a design that will be remembered 50 years from now, similar in fame to the '57 Bel Air. And not in concept form.

:rolleyes: Let's see:

Chevrolet:

1. Production version of Nomad on Kappa with 2+2 seating and storage - size of new Mini Clubwagon

2. Camaro in production form - convertible to show off prod. interior.

3. NG Impala RWD sedan.

4. nothing build in Korea or China in the booth.

5. Colorado replacement - anything would be better than what it is.

6. A replacement mini-van that is basically a blown up HHR that can seat 7, built on the Enclave/Acadia/outlook drivetrain. How cool would that look?

Buick:

1. A RWD Buick Roadmaster based loosely on the Holden Efijy Concept mimicking the styling of 49-53 Buicks instead of the melted bars of soap we have now.

2. Production Enclave

3. Production 2+2 convertible al al Velite

Caddy

1. CTS replacement

2. A stylish replacement for the SRX in concept form

3. Production V16 sedan and Convertible

Saturn:

1. The european Opels in disguise.

2. Perhaps a version of the Kappa Nomad wagon for Saturn, with styling lifted from the Preview.

3. Aura convertible hardtop built on the G6 convertible.

Hybrids and Diesel engines accross the board in the Chevrolet and Saturn makes. I do not think that they will fly in the upmarket cars.

mini wagon kappa like chevy nomad for production. Get a kappa with room for 4 and space for travel bags.

Oh yeah, an appropriate-sized diesel engine offered for everything!

Free Hamburgers at the GM desk at my autoshow.

When I get to the Chevrolet area, I'm usually starving.

1. Wagons

2. Hatchbacks

3. Diesel engine option in cars

Possibly the sale of SAAB, I don't know all the details of that relationship, so I can't definitely say.
