    GM Daewoo Announces Alpheon Luxury Sedan

    Daewoo Announces Alpheon Luxury Sedan
    South Koreans will get our Buick LaCrosse.

    In recent weeks spy photographs have already revealed the latest Daewoo product; however it is now official. Today at the 2010 Busan International Motor Show GM Daewoo revealed the Alpheon luxury sedan.

    Obviously the new Alpheon is based on the Buick LaCrosse from China and North America, making the new LaCrosse even more of a global product for General Motors Company.

    The new Alpheon will launch in the second half of 2010 in South Korea with the same 3.0L High Feature V6 and six-speed automatic that the 2010 Buick LaCrosse launched with.

    Alpheon is expected to compete with recent upper-midsize sedans launched from Hyundai.

    “With the introduction of the all-new Alpheon luxury sedan, we have added another attractive model to our product portfolio and our first entry in the fast-growing upper-midsize segment in Korea,” said GM Daewoo President and CEO Mike Arcamone. “I am confident that the Alpheon will surpass the demands of the most sophisticated luxury sedan buyers in Korea.”

    very interesting!
    Why not have Buick there as well. Import the LaCrosse and Regal and Enclave and they already have the Park Ave.

    I like the badge!

    Same renderings of a LaCrosse and the background, with the Daewoo details.

    I kind of like the name.

    I think it'll be more Insignia sized Global Malibo rather than LaCrosse

    Images are one thing which can be shopped no matter what the source

    No that's not what happening.

    This is the Buick LaCrosse being sold as Alpheon.
    LaCrosse is on the Extended Wheelbase.

    All of the information is from Daewoo's own press release. The car is the LaCrosse...they even say that in the release.

    How friggin' cheap of GM. They couldn't even pop for a proper Daewoo-style grille, just slapped a Daewoo emblem on the Buick "waterfall".

    I hope this slaughters the Grandeur/Azera in the Korean market!

    Malibu will be the size of the Insignia. LaCrosse is on LWB.
