Wow, that wagon would be perfect Magnum competition.

Yup!

The pair of them are the modern equivalent of my two project cars!

I'd love to see all four side-by-side in my barn. :AH-HA_wink:

Most definitely. I would seriously consider a G8 wagon next summer if it was available when my Envoy lease expires. Come on GM... don't disappoint us!

Wait a minute... did Holden officially release the wagon yet to teh public? How come this is the first time I'm seeing it? Anyway, I would be extremely ecstatic if it too came over here for 2008 as a Pontiac. It definitely has my attention.

You might get the chance,Roger.

The word is that a case is being made to do just that!

And no, the wagon has not been officially released yet. These pics originated from an Australian website.

Don't forget that these are HSV models that we may never see.

There aren't any plans for a G8 wagon as of now. The Holden version starts production in late February.

According to GuionM, a case is being made for the G8 wagon right now.

Seems it was a little tidbit he ran across while searching for information on the Ute.

I don't doubt that they're pushing for it, but I am certain it has not been approved.

Also, sorry to disappoint GMTG, but the G8 wagon is not going to make it here by next summer, I fear. The Commodore wagon doesn't start production 'til late-Feb 08. I guess if the G8 started right after then it would make it here, but I sort of doubt it will start more than a couple months after the Commodore.

H@T! :wub:

we agree! i am in love with this car!

i sure hope it has AWD.

my lease ends in fall 08. but i am sure GM will take 5 years making this reality. why can't they get their crap together and have the wagon ready to go when the sedan arrives here?

GM would be foolish to not add this to US G8 lineup . I see Magnum's everywhere . This would be more on the scale of a BMW or Merc sport wagon , I think it would do very well at a low volume . I think it would sell better actually than a El Camino .

ZEXY! i totally expect pontiac to get this to pair with the G8. it's a no brainer.

very attractive, and will do well. Just don't have crappy base models. it's about performance here.

The brakelights on the wagon could've been executed better. Otherwise, both look great.

Whoa... that wagon is too hot to handle. If we've gotta have the G8 sedan, then this would be an excellent addition to that lineup.

There's something so cool about a wagon that goes like stink. It's the ultimate sleeper.

G.M. - I pledge to you that if you will bring the wagon here, put the LS3 in it, and execute it along the lines of the G8GT - I will buy one immediately or sooner! Where and to whom do I make the check out to for the deposit?

Lutz: It would be a major failure on your part to NOT put that wagon on our shores within the next year of our lives. And do not be skimpy on the hot colors either!!! That eye seering green and the bright colors will be just the ticket to put the SUV crowd into these NON BORING cars!

Wagons are very practical and in the days of $3/gallon gasoline they do offer great utility in a well handling package, and with a V6, great mileage. Bring it.

The UTE is a HSV, has the same frontend as the HSZ sedans (possibly G8GXP).

The wagon isnt a HSV but instead the Holden SSV model.

I believe you are correct.

A wagon would make a lot of sense in 2 ways.

1) To capture some escaping SUV customers (i.e. people who want something smaller and cheaper than an SUV, yet still need utility)

2) It would give Pontiac a unique offering that no other american division (at GM) has.
