Saab may build the next Astra

Recommended Posts

Wow, they make ALOT of Astras. The diesel news is welcome, for sure. I wonder what kind of numbers the 2.9L V6 and 4.5L V8 make. I think they'd do well here, in the right vehicles.

Diesel is LONG overdue for a wider market BUT better now than not doing it at all. GM will gain a good number of customers on this!

Precisely. GM will also be taking a leadership role with this.

About damn time Gm got real about Diesels and brought quality Diesel engines to the market. GM could have had another sale to me but with the new suburban not having Diesel, no reason to update my very clean and still running strong Suburban I have.

Really wanted a new suburban with the Duramax and Allison 6 speed tranny. :(

Notice how they dont build any in eastern europe? Whereas their competitors are all going to slovakia, Poland, Czech republic. Because The British Swedes and Germans were all previously fighting their own countries' corners, trying to protect "their" plants
