If you could bring back/create 5 new GM vehicles

49 posts in this topic

I thought this would be a fun topic. If you could bring back or create five new GM vehicles that aren't currently in the lineup, what would they be? Here's my list: 1. Cadillac ULS - range topping Cadillac to compete with 7er/S-Class/etc. 2. Buick Velite - RWD sedan, coupe, and convert versions based on the concept. 3. Pontiac "G8" - RWD sedan based loosely on the GTO (next gen GTO, if there is one). 4. Pontiac Kappa sedan - something to give Pontiac a model below the G6. 5. Chevy Camaro - self explanatory I think.

Buick GNX: 3.6L V6 with a turbo (or TT), 6-spd gearbox, and Kappa. Tahoe/K1500 Blazer 2-door: Based on the new GMT-900. Removable cargo top. Cadillac Eldorao (or ETC): Basically a 2-door STS, lowered slightly for better road presence. Thats really all I can think of.

1. Buick Wildcat/Riviera: rwd V8/12, 2 and 4-door hardtops, Convertible - American Luxury 2. Oldsmobile: rwd, supercharged V8, 2-door coupe/convertible - American power 3. Pontiac Firebird: V8 Solstice Coupe - American power for the common man 4. Chevrolet Camaro: Inline 6/V8 - Back to it's roots 5. Cadillac 12/Eldorado: 12cyl ultra luxury, 4-door and 2-door coupe- back to their roots in the '30s as one of the most prestigeous cars in the world

1. Olds Aurora, maybe as a RWD sedan about the same size as the 01-03 2. Olds Alero -OR- Calais, redesigned around the Profile, stay as FWD on Epsilon 3. Olds Cutlass, No Cutlibus please, just a nice replacement for Intrigue, can be on modified W-Body as is the Intrigue, but use the Cutlass name 4. Olds Recon, Epsilon based crossover, again, no Malibu (Maxx) clones please 5. (Can't think of this one yet, Olds doesn't seem to need 5 models anyways) In short: BRING BACK OLDS!

-Chevy Blazer: Colorado-based 2-door Xterra/Wrangler/FJ Cruiser Competitor

-Chevy K5 "Tahoe": Tahoe-based 2-door brute-ute with removable hardtop.

-Chevy Camaro: Why explain?

-Pontiac Fiero: Hey, why not compete in a market Toyota has abandoned and will soon be filled the the VW Roadster? We need more cheap Boxsters and Caymans running around.

-Saturn Tornado: Modern reincarnation of the '66 Olds Toronado. It would be the Saturn flagship and would be the divisons car that would take on the duty of Olds in the '60s: be the guinea pig and engineering divison of GM. (That reponsibility would later be applied across the line.) And because this would be so far ahead in performance and functionalty, it could be considered a near-supercar for sub-Corvette prices.

Can't stop at five...

-Chevy Bel Air: Kappa-based small convertible for Chevy that would compete with cars like the VW Beetle Ragtop and be even cooler and more contemporary in style while still being nostaligic.

-Chevy Biscayne: Mall-i-bu replacement. The Biscayne never really seemed to get it's chance in the spotlight in the late '50s and early '60s.

-Chevy Chevelle: Why explain this one, too?

-Chevy Nomad: Just bring us a cross between the '99 and '04 concepts so we can kick the Magnum's ass!

-Pontiac Grand Am: How about a new GA coupe/'vert/sedan with styling based from the mid-'70s model with small-block V8 power based on Kappa? Edited by anorexorcist

Any GM car in the configuration of a '78-'88 A/G body would suit me. Any car in the B, C or D-body configuration from '81-'90. Any F-car from '67-'69, or even '70-'73 when the 2nd-gen still had purity of line. With the necessary updates, of course. All these vehicles reflected a GM that was breezily confident. They seemed so apologetic for so long, and I sincerely hope this new positive attitude at GM grows.

"Three chords for beauty's sake, and one to pay the rent." 1.Buick Riviera 2.Buick Roadmaster 3.Buick Wildcat 4.Chevrolet Camaro P.S. - 5. Buick Rendezvous find a new vehicle to use that name on, since they're going to change the Lambda crossover's name to Centieme; maybe a sub-Theta crossover, "Rendezvous... where luxury and utility meet"

1. Camaro. All-American, modern, retro cues, and kickin' the shit outta Ford. 2. Riviera. Beautiful full-size sedan with flowing lines and a roomy interior. 3. Caprice. RWD, full-size, and withstands all damage. Kickass, one might say. 4. Fiero. Yeah, must I explain? 5. Trans Am. Firebird? Sure, but T/A? Definitely. 6. Grand National 7. Saturn Tornado idea is sweet 8. Nomad 9. Wildcat 10. Aurora 11. Cutlass

BV may have beaten me for the first all-Pontiac post, but mine will do him one better regardless: Phoenix - return of the rear-drive compact (Ecotec, Atlas) Firebird - return of the grand tourer (Atlas, LS) Fiero - return of the mid-engine club racer (HF) Tempest - return of the full-range intermediate, in coupe, sedan, and wagon (Atlas, LS) Grand Prix - return of the personal luxury performance car, the flagship (LS) And anyone wondering about the GTO? It would be a Tempest coupe with the Grand Prix's engine, only lighter with less of the fussy technocrap. My big dream idea, however, is for Pontiac to develop a new OHC engine family with a small-displacement V-8 and the first American V-12 in a long time
