Camaro or Mustang EV CUV?

We have heard from Ford that an EV auto will be part of their auto lineup and that a Mustang AWD EV could be part of that lineup. Ford also stated that the mustang name could make it onto a CUV or at least something other than the traditional 2 door pony car. They have pretty much stated that this would be a Mach1 Mustang Based EV SUV.

Fast forward a few month to the Chevrolet Dealership meeting where many things were shown off to them and slipping out to a forum from an attendee was that they were shown a performance EV crossover with similarity to a Camaro. 

Is GM following Ford and planning to have a Performance Camaro CUV?

Pulling from Motor1 and thoughts from InsideEV we end up with the following potential CUV like versions of a Camaro & Mustang.

Seems 2020 is going to be an exciting EV year with options that many never had before in their lifetime.

What are your thoughts on these potential EV Concepts / Production versions?

Madness.. keep the Mustang and Camaro as they are.   If they want to make sporty SUVs/CUVs, create some new identities.

I would agree with you that they are not grand or perfect, but since both Ford and Chevrolet seem to feel they need an EV version for their pony lines and it needs to be a CUV, I can see why they are doing it to capture and retain their customers.

Remember, some peeps here have said Corvette needs a CUV version too.

Well...I have said that Corvette needs to be a brand on its own. Which in turn, means that a Corvette CUV is necessary, as part of a brand...

About the proposal above concerning Mustang and Camaro:

NO!

I wouldn't mind a Mustang and Camaro being 100% electric sometime in the (near) future (maybe?)...as 2 door sporty cars...just as they are now, but with electric motors and batteries.

I wouldn't mind AWD either. Actually, I wouldn't mind AWD now! Both top Mustangs and Camaros have upwards (or will have for the Mustang soon)  of 650 horsepower and 650 ft.lbs . of torque.  AWD will benefit them. OK, maybe not as weight may be an issue. 

As long as Mustang and Camaro stay true to their original purpose, for me, what powers them is irrelevant.

If GM and FoMoCo need sporty CUVs to peddle, Im sure they could find a way to engineer, market and sell a new product and create new brand identity with said new vehicle.

Does that mean the death of 2 door sporty cars if in the future people wont be buying them which in turn will make Mustang and Camaro nameplates disappear?

Sure!

But what is the point of slapping the name Mustang or Camaro on a product and that particular product is the exact opposite of what Mustang's and Camaro's original purpose was?  If that is the case,  the original purpose to Mustang and Camaro is clearly dead...so clinging on to names just for the sake of the names is useless...

Marketing  should find a way to make Mustang and Camaro...AS 2 DOOR SPORTS CARS RELEVANT IN ANY FUTURE!!!

Marketing should also find a way to create NEW brands to be as iconic as Mustang and Camaro in the future as well as sporty CUVs...

Engineering should take care of business to make all that happen!

Given Ford's announcement yesterday, these definitely seem more likely down the road.   It wouldn't surprise me if GM re-thinks the mid engine Corvette idea and instead focuses on a Corvette CUV.   Strange days...

Hasn't Ford hinted at a Mach 1 branded EV CUV? 

I hate that they're using that name for a CUV and not a Mustang trim.

      Rumor has it that Ford is working on a V8 powered version of their Ranger Raptor currently sold in overseas markets. Only available in other parts of the world, the current Ranger Raptor is powered by a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder diesel that produces 210 horsepower and 369 lb.-ft of torque, but a report in Wheels magazine says that Ford Australia is working with an external engineering company to swap the 2.0 diesel for a 5.0-liter V8 from the Mustang GT.  The odd thing about this is that the Ranger Raptor 5.0 would be still built with the 2.0-liter diesel under the hood and then later converted to V8 gasoline power.
      Expect power to be about the same as it makes in the Australian spec Mustang GT, a healthy 455 horsepower and 410 lb.-ft of torque. 
      If it all comes together, the Ranger Raptor 5.0 is expected to go on sale in Australia next year, sold by Ford dealers and backed by the full 5-year warranty. For now, the Ranger Raptor remains forbidden fruit to the U.S. no matter what engine is under the hood.

      Rumor has it that Ford is working on a V8 powered version of their Ranger Raptor currently sold in overseas markets. Only available in other parts of the world, the current Ranger Raptor is powered by a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder diesel that produces 210 horsepower and 369 lb.-ft of torque, but a report in Wheels magazine says that Ford Australia is working with an external engineering company to swap the 2.0 diesel for a 5.0-liter V8 from the Mustang GT.  The odd thing about this is that the Ranger Raptor 5.0 would be still built with the 2.0-liter diesel under the hood and then later converted to V8 gasoline power.
      Expect power to be about the same as it makes in the Australian spec Mustang GT, a healthy 455 horsepower and 410 lb.-ft of torque. 
      If it all comes together, the Ranger Raptor 5.0 is expected to go on sale in Australia next year, sold by Ford dealers and backed by the full 5-year warranty. For now, the Ranger Raptor remains forbidden fruit to the U.S. no matter what engine is under the hood.

      At an event in Detroit this evening, Chevrolet took the wraps off the Tahoe and Suburban SUVs. We don't have specs yet to publish, but wanted to get the pictures out for you to see.  I will be updating the article as more details come out. 
      Six different trims will be offered including the new High Country trim, an RST trim, and Z71 becomes its own trim line instead of being offered as a separate package. LS, LT, and Premier trims carry on. Engines are the 5.3-liter and 6.2-liter V8s, but the 3.0L Duramax will also be joining the lineup. The 5.3 and 6.2 now sport dynamic fuel management. All engines send power to the wheels through a 10-speed automatic. The Duramax is available on every trim except Z71.
      The power ratings are:
      5.3-Liter - 355 Horsepower at 5600 RPM / 383 lb-Ft of torque at 4100 RPM 6.2-Liter - 420 Horsepower at 5600 RPM / 460 lb-ft of torque at 4100 RPM 3.0-Liter Duramax - 277 Horsepower at 3750 RPM / 460 lb-ft of torque at 1500 RPM The column shifter is gone, replaced with a new pushbutton design placed on the dash.  Thanks to a fully independent rear suspension, they both gain room inside. Magnetic Ride Control and an Air Ride Adaptive Suspension (available on Z71 and High Country) are available. The Air Ride suspension offers adjustable height of up to 4-inches at all four corners .
      The dash sports a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment center standard. Buyers can opt for a rear seat entertainment system with twin 12.6-inch displays. Interior room is up; Tahoe sports 40 percent more third-row leg room and 66 percent more cargo volume behind the third row. While maximum cargo room is up 30 percent, the overall length increased only 4 percent. This is done on a wheelbase that is 4.9 inches longer than the 2020 model.  Suburban gets a 4.1 inch increase in wheelbase so that interior cargo volume increases 19 percent while overall length increases 1.3 inches.
