Chevrolet to revive the Nomad nameplate

It looks like the Nomad nameplate will be back on Chevrolet showrooms in 2009. According to a recent article on The Nomad will be another GM Lambda large crossover vehicle. This vehicle would fill the gap between the Chevy Equinox and the Tahoe.

The article states they see the decision to use the traditional Nomad nameplate on a vehicle other than a two-door wagon to go smoothly. I disagree, GM has had a couple of Nomad concept vehicles at auto shows and they resemble the Nomad of the 1950s, two door sport wagons on car chassis. I believe their decision to use it on a big four door SUV is a mistake.

Personally, I would rather see a Nomad version of the new Camaro before it goes on the Lambda platform. What do you think?
