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?

The new camaro in Europe?

Chevrolet Europe announced they plan to export the new Camaro in 2009!


“Millions of people of all ages fell in love with the Chevrolet Camaro for all of the right reasons,” said Ed Welburn, GM vice president, global design. “Camaros were beautiful to look at and offered performance that could rival expensive European GTs. Yet, they were practical enough to be driven every day and priced within the reach of many new car buyers.” The long hood, short deck and wide stance of the Chevrolet Camaro Concept leave no doubt that it is a serious performance car. Those looks are backed up by a 400-horsepower aluminum small-bock V-8, a six-speed manual transmission, and a sophisticated chassis with four-wheel independent suspension. Like its forebears, the Chevrolet Camaro Concept would be practical enough for everyday use. It features fuel-saving features like Active Fuel Management™ cylinder deactivation technology, yielding highway fuel economy of 30 mpg or better. Its overall size is a comfortable fit for city streets and suburban parking lots, and its back Seat provides occasional seating for two adults.
