doesn't the next 9-5 happen simultaneously with the LaX?

Could be..haven't seen anything concrete about it yet.

Unless it has been moved up, the 9-5 is/was to debut about 6-8 months after the LaX.

So yeah, add the 9-5, add the CTS wagon also. The 9-1 was originally supposed to be here before the 9-5 (at least in Europe) but that program was said to be stalled not long ago...

We were told there is a new minivan coming in the 2nd quarter or 3rd quarter of '09 for Chevrolet. Not sure if GMC or Pontiac is getting one, too.

That one is odd..I've heard rumors of it several times, but no concept or spy pics have been seen yet...wonder if it's going to be a surprise at one of the major 09 shows..

2009 CTS-V

2009 Saab 9-3/SportCombi XWD

Also for 2010 I thought there was a chance the Silverado/Sierra were getting an MCE and the new 4.5L diesel engine options in the 1500s. 2009 brings wider adoption of the 6-speed autos.

You sure there hadn't been one camouflaged spy photo... with the vehicle, in a dark color, looking along the lines of a Zafira/MPV.

EDIT: I found a site with the photo: go to http://www.worldcarfans.com/9080804.006/ne...-mpv-spy-photos

Cool..that's first I've seen of it.. wonder what it will be named in NA.

What would be your choice for a name?

The one which just popped in my mind is Bel Air - "fresh as a breeze, the new Chevy Bel Air."

Volt is MY 2011 - targeted initial release 11/2010.

Also, there's a MY 2009 VUE 2-Mode and a MY 2011 VUE Plug-In.

hrmm looking at the vehicles due to arrive, i can estimate 600-3/4 million extra annual vehicles for 2009-2010 time frame, should be a delight to the monthly sales figures.

Hey, I wouldn't mind it if they brought the Astro back. We sold a lot of them. They are great delivery vehicles for downtown stores/businesses. I just had a customer trade their '92 Astro (with 130k miles on it) for a new Uplander. Many people I sold Astros to are holding onto them because there is nothing to replace them with. The cargo vans were big sellers to the cable companies and phone companies.

We've ordered 40 Uplander cargo vans for fleet. They aren't as good for the trades as the Astro but for the city they are better than the much larger Express van.

my parents still have a 91 gmc. ~160K miles and other than blue smoke at startup, it really drives and mostly handles like it has 60k on it.... might just need some rust to be taken care of, but it's really not bad.

I thought that elsewhere, someone stated that the NG Chinese Buick Excelle (Skylark?) would be out in, I think, 3rd quarter 2009 --- so there shouldn't be any reason why it couldn't be out in NA then, too. Right?

The Astro's spiritual successor...
