Not sure if it was posted yet, but here;s my take:

Good Points: Montana SV6 in its current form dies, LaCrosse Super is confirmed and coming, and Enclave will be a 2007 model!

Bad Points: The G5 name, if its not changed enough from Cobalt, ("It looks like a Cobalt." That's a nasty phrase...).

I don't like the feeling on saying it's just under 15,000.

Looking at current Cobalt coupe lineup, the LT is 15920, and it's the 2.2L

That means the G5 will start with the 2.2L as well. Straight overlap.

I don't get why they won't just bring a base G6 coupe, wheel covers, 2.4L and put the pricing along with the base sedan. Unless there is a capacity problem with the 2.4L, but if this is the case, it means the G5 won't be getting 2.4L as a starter for sure either.

Please, GM, do a Ford-esque rebadge and not just a new grille! Ford at least changes the headlights/taillights once in awhile!

There will be a base model and a performance model they said-so maybe this could be an SJ with a 2.4-liter DOHC ECOTEC 175hp I-4, while a GT (Formula preferred) could have the SS Supercharged 2.0-liter DOHC 205hp (or more?) I-4.

I would consider the acceptable level to be as where the Malibu and the G6 are differentiated.

But Oh well.... you can't get everything <_<...

All good news!!!

With the addition of the G5 (Cobalt as it may be) and lower end G6, combined with the small sales bump from Torrent; Pontiac should be able to sustain itself. Below $15,000... Wow.

20,000 Solsti sounds nice too.... I think the B/P/GMC channel does need another entry level car besides the Vibe.

Lacrosse Super should help Buick that much more!

At that price point, it looks like the G5 won't be much more than the Torrent is to the Equinox. Say bye bye to those dreams of it only being a supercharged coupe.

Great news on the Buicks, though!

So... why is it G4 in Mexico and G5 in the US??

and Pursuit in Canada.

I hope this is only a 2-3 year stop gap till thye can put a coupe/sedan on the Kappa chasis.
