It'd be hard to pick just one thing to change, but I probably change the Lucerne's V6 to the 3.6L HF V6 if I could only change one thing.

Across the board I would ban those exposed cheap looking black antennas. No more exposed antennas GM!....they are vulnerable to damage and vandalism. Nothing makes a car look more instantly like a piece of crap then a bent antenna.

Get rid of the 4-speed Hydramatic across the car lineup. Slap on the 6-speed. Manual available across whole Pontiac line.

Make a new FWD/AWD platform that has shorter overhangs, a wider track, and more rear-seat legroom than the current Epsilon and W plaforms.

Make a flexible platform. A wide, RWD-capable one that can suit the needs of Muscle Cars and make it also vary to allow AWD for more "Tuner" cars. Oh wait, where's Zeta?!

Nope, all a rumor, blackHHR Think about it. BOTH of those platforms have OBVIOUSLY seen work in the last few years. Why would they cut Zeta near the end of getting it neat and tidy just to finish the GMT-900s, which are more or less done? Edited by NOS2006

Zeta is dead, but they are working on a "Sigma Lite" program. Zeta was deemed to expensive for the cars they wanted to do off of it so they decided to start over. Now we'll be seeing the "Zeta cars" probably 2-3 later than originally expected if they are in fact made on Sigma Lite.

Though, Northie, isn't Sigma Lite practically the same as Zeta but with a few different minor components and a different name?

Heh.

Simple:

Bring back the Monte Carlo ... RWD, please.

Oh, yeah, it has to have the characteristic bodylines and, of course, the knight crest/shield emblem.

But, I know...way too much to ask.

Can I get a 1.4L diesel offered on every car? If not, how about decent interiors and economy cars that are actually economical (Aveo)?

I honestly don't know if you're serious about the 1.4 diesel thing, Satty. And if you are, you don't mean ALL models..? Right??

Well, other than the diesel comment, I completely agree with Satty.

Since my previous post was vague... I'll go into just a bit of detail. :D

Pontiac:
-G6: Name changes to Grand Am. Trims change to SE, GT, GTP, GXP. Engine choices change to 3.6L V6 on GT/GTP, Turbo 2.8L I4 on SE/GT, and Turbo 3.6L V6 on GXP (all DOHC). Transmissions change to standard 6-speed manual and optional 6-speed auto on all engines (auto N/A on GXP). Suspenion changes to a more aggressive set-up. Brakes changes to larger cross-drilled discs on all 4 wheels. Interior changes: Higher quality materials, real brushed aluminum accents, new center stack that flows with the dash and into a new center console, new coporate radio/HVAC controls with optional NAV, and the color combos: black/black, black/gray, black/tan, black/gray/morroco (no specific names used). Exterior changes: new headlight elements with HID, specific front/rear fascias, spoilers, and ground effects for SE, GT/GTP, and GXP, body-colored mirrors, larger wheels; 17" for SE, 18" for GT/GTP, and 19" for GXP, removal of cladding, new rear for sedan includes sportier taillights and revised bumper with reverse lights, new rear for coupe/conv includes slightly revised taillights and revised bumper with reverse lights, and finally new exhaust tips; single for SE, dual for GT/GTP, and quad for GXP.

-Torrent: Trims change to SE, GT, GTP. Engine choices change to 2.8L V6 for SE/GT and 3.6L V6 for GT/GTP (both DOHC). Transmissions change to standard 6-speed manual and optional 6-speed auto on both engines. Suspension changes to a lower and much more aggressive set-up. Brakes change to larger cross-drilled discs on all four wheels. Interior changes: all new design seperate from Equinox with round HVAC vents, sportier center stack, new coporate radio with optional NAV, higher quality materials, real brushed aluminum accents, and the color combos: black/black, black/gray, black/tan (no specific names used). Exterior changes: all new body design seperate from Equinox with sportier greenhouse, lower profile look, more car-like front and rear designs, overall sportier look, specific front/rear fascias and ground effects for SE, GT/GTP, larger wheels; 17" for SE, 18" for GT, and 19" for GTP and finally new exhaust tips; single for SE and dual for GT/GTP.

Transmissions change to standard 5-speed manual and optional 5-speed auto for 2.4, standard 6-speed manual and optional 6-speed auto for T2.0, and 6-speed manual for T2.4. No suspension or brake changes expect the addition of a sportier set-up for GXP. Interior changes: higher quality materials, real brushed aluminum, and the color combos: black/black, black/tan, black/tan/morroco. Exterior changes: the addition of a coupe body-style, slighty revised headlights with sportier shape, HID elements, and integrated ambers, sportier front fascia with sharper twin-port grill and smaller fogs, ground effects for GXP, and finally new exhaust tips; single for SE and dual for GT and GXP.
