Trademarks (December Update)

Recommended Posts

Credit first must be given to ToniCipriani for his thread on a "Saturn Astra" trademark that GM has recently registered:

http://www.cheersandgears.com/forums/index...view=getnewpost

I decided to do some snooping on the site he cited and this is what I found so far:

-Nissan Motors has recently registered the names "G37", "FX37", and "M37" for its Infiniti brand. This pretty much is a confirmation of the rumor of the size of Nissan's new VQ (or VQ-derived) V6 engine. Now we just have to see if the 330hp claims are also true.

-Toyota Motors last summer reigstered "LX520", "LX550", "LX570" and "LX600". Obviously, they're not going to use all of these but based on the new Tundra possessing a 5.7L V8, I'm pretty certain an LX570 is headed our way.

I'll post more stuff as I find it.

Update starting @ post #100.

-The Lincoln MKMadness is just getting started, it looks like. Back in fall of 2005 Ford registered for Lincoln (in addition to what we already know) "MKC", "MKN" and "MKT". So if they ever do make another Continental, it won't be a "Continental". It'll probably be a "MKC". And the presence of the "MKT" moniker doesn't spell good things for the future of the "Town Car" nameplate.

On the DCX front:

-As of last summer, Mercedes planned on another vehicle for us, the "GLK-Class".

-In January, "CLS63" (AMG) and "CLS65" (V12 cruiser) became a reality as did...wait for it... an "SLK65" (registered last December)?! WTF?

-Way back in 2004, Chrysler lid claim on "300 Black Tie Edition".

I'll post more stuff as I find it.

I wonder if some of those may be hybrids. Remeber the RX400.....

I don't think so. If they were hybrids, they'd have "h" after them. On that note though, there will be a "LS600hL" (long-wheelbase hybrid LS).

OK, I am really bored. Before you guys start beating me up for putting posts everywhere about the same thing, I'll just move all the stuff here for now.

I've found other names of interest that has been registered by GM in US:

Astra

BLC

BLS

BRX

BLW (dead)

G5

G8

Serrano (dead)

Tigre (dead)

Invicta

Moab

There's more (like 900 in total).

Interestingly some of them are being registered recently.

And another:

Enclave

This one isn't registered under GM, but a company called Enclave Corporation, which has the same address as GM. Maybe something there as well?

I merged the two threads together, but the order of posts is kind of messed up since it goes by time. I don't think it really matters though.

More GM trademarks:

"H3T": A H3 with an open bed in the vein of the H2 SUT, most likely.

"H4": An even smaller Hummer? (Prays it's not a soft-roader.)

"HX": Could be for HUMMER but...what could it be?

I wish HUMMER would quit useing this silly H to discribe their models. The HUMMER H1 is the HUMMER HUMMER #1. They should use something like TYPE 1 or SERIES 1 or even name them after MOUNTAIN RANGES. The H1 could be the HIMALAYA. The H2 could be the CASCADE. Anything would be better then HUMMER HUMMER 1/HUMMER HUNNER 2/HUMMER HUNNER 3 ECT! <_<

No it's registered to Enclave. The USPTO identifies it as a Corporation (as Toyota Jidosha K.K. Corporation; Ford Motor Company Corporation), but it's just a mistake on the form. Doh!

Toni, the best thing I can say is that we can only hope that there is a new Chevelle to come out (or at least I can only hope that there is a new Chevelle to come out)

Hehe. A Mazda1 would probably be a subcompact, but somehow Mazdaspeed1 sounds more like a cable TV network than a car.

A mazda 1 through 9.....sheesh.....if the Miata is the 5, I'd absolutely HATE to see what the 1 is.

Nah, the Mazda5 is this thing:

I wouldn't be suprised to see Mazda bring a subcompact over. They're the "in" thing now.

Speaking of subcompacts "Cube" and "Cube Cubic" have been registered for America courtesy of Nissan as of last summer.

Damn, this is fun. :)

Whoops, forgot, about the actual Mazda 5....oh well, I guess the Miata could be the 1 then. And you've gotta be joking when you say Nissan has registered the Cube.......

No matter what, Mazda will never toss the "MX-5" or "Miata" name. It holds too much clout. It'd be like Chevy getting rid of the "Corvette" name.

that's true, but on the same note, look at Pontiac, it takes the name Grand Am that's been around for quite some time and makes it G6, Mazda could do the same and change it to the Mazda1 Miata.
