I would have probed the "Next Gen Malibu" comment a bit more, like what direction are they going in?
You could have also asked what his thought was on the Camaro playing BumbleBee (since he is both a 1st gen and VW fan)! That would have been very interesting.
LOL at the PT versus HHR question!
Interesting point about the HHR being a next gen Suburban though (with Bryan's cynical laugh!).
Thanks for that great interview, Z!
You never know who you could interview next from GM Design. It could very well even be me. :AH-HA_wink:
Bryan is responsible for the current Chevy look, the Malibu, HHR, GMT 900s all done under his tenure. Lump in Impala as one he improved on but couldn't do much to [given the hardpoints that were there and GM's pressure to appeal to conservative buyers]. Bryan's only been head of car design for no more than two years now. With the Chevy line he really crafted an enduring look. Though it was criticized for its plainness, the attention to surfacing detail with the 900s, Malibu, and HHR really give the lineup a completed look and with the addition of Malibu one of best looking lineups for a general carmaker in the biz. They all share a clean and modern asthetic that brings the Chevy lineup forward and ahead of rivals Ford, Toyo, and Nissan. Honda is right up there with forward thinking, but the execution isn't so good sometimes. Next up would be a great large car [impala], and a great small car, as well as revisions to a midsize pickup truck line that is beyond aging and another enduring "what's old is new again" design, Trailblazer. The Equinox can go right away please.
