Nesbitt: "Making engineering and design work together"

13 posts in this topic

A Q&A with Bryan Nesbitt, V-P of Design, GMNA, "Making engineering and design work together," was published by the Boston Globe on December 30, 2007.

For me being a Buick fan, he states that right now, he's driving, among others, a "next-generation Enclave."

Scary he didn't mention Pontiac in his replies, even after the interviewer mentioned it.

Don't read too much into that.

Though I must admit I noticed at the end when he said "next-generation" Enclave and Acadia but didn't mention Outlook.

Nah, means nothing.

I've never heard of the term "Upper Liberal" before, but I guess it makes sense that it's the Saab's base.

Never heard it either..I assume he meant 'upper middle class liberal'. And of course, since it is was a Boston Globe article, he mentioned Saab, since New England has long been a bastion of Saab fandom..

The NG Enclave, Acadia and Escalade are just what he's driving now.

Seems a bit early for them to have engineering mules for such NG models--aren't they at least 4-5 years away from production?

He doesn't do a very good interview.

Why not start on the next generation now. It does seem early to already be test driving them, though with only 3 years between cycles . . .

I'd be surprised to see GM do 3 year cycles, given that their norm is now 4-5 or so..maybe 2-3 years between MCUs, though.

Design and engineering working together. Ha. What a concept. Imagine that?

Why not start on it early so they can have more time to make it better by the time it comes out?

Definitely starting earlier is better...just surprised they have anything that far along at this point (since the current versions just came out).
