I am sick of FIAT...
IF IT AINT RWD; AND A CHEVY I DONT RIDE IT!!!!!
ALL CHEVY'S NEED TO BE RWD!!!!!
Why? is it because thier Curren/Future products and even "rumors" are more interesting than anything from GM?
Sad thing is is that the Barracuda will be out for 3 years before GM has even 10% of what we all rumorize about if any of it at all,seeing how quickly projects are cancelled or changed due to fuel prices.
A RWD D segment sedan/Coupe(MY2014)

6.2L Hemi "Supercharged" possible
CUSW platform for compact and midsized cars and crossovers
LX's being moved to LA Platform
ZF9 Speed for FWD Applications
New AWD Systems
New 4x4 Systems for Jeep
this is all within 2013-2015 and what makes it better, there are FEW leaks of these new products and whatever Mules we seen would look nothing like the final product. Its like Area 51 at Chrysler right now. Many of these projects are in the works, some will be "Changed", Non are canceled.
XTS isnt getting a V treatment, why waste the time and money making a V out of F/Awd Large sedan thats already said to be a stopgap?. The GS Lacross.. the last wwe heard of that was almost 2 years ago with the spy shots it turned out to be a Concept of a Higher Trim, GM said the GS will never happen. if so, its not gona be any better than the GS Regal. the only thing GM has going for themselfs is the new Vette its Motor, the "Limited" SS , Pickups/SUV's (with the Caddy being the only noteworthy SUV) and maybe the GN Series.

Thanks for the timetable update. Seems very ambitious and if alfa ever gets here it will be a long anticipated release. I'm an alfa fan from the 60s!

I hang out on ChallengerTalk, the expectation right now is that '14 will be a mild update (turbo V6 perhaps, maybe a nose change) but not a full mid-cycle refresh.
They need to revise the GC/Durango to get 5 stars on the NHTSA crash test cycle. As it stands I recommend people go for the Lambda or Explorer/Flex instead because of the GC's poor crash test scores.
The Crash ratings are not THAT bad for a SUV. remember its a SUV not a Crossover. Its a 4 Overall, 4 Frontal Crash (male 5 female 4), 5 Side Impact, 4 Rollover on NHTSA and a "Good" rating on IIHS
"The U.S. Government awarded 2012 Jeep® Grand Cherokee with the 5-Star overall side crash rating+, its highest designation, thanks to over 45 available safety and security features.
In addition to the 5-Star overall side crash rating, the 2012 Grand Cherokee also received:
5-Star combined side barrier and pole rating for front seat+
5-Star combined side barrier and pole rating for rear seat+
5-Star side barrier rating for driver front seat (male)+
5-Star side barrier rating for passenger rear seat (female)+
5-Star side pole rating for driver front seat (female)+
5-Star frontal barrier crash rating for driver (male)"
where in the world did you get your Info from?

Changes to the 300 and Charger already? These things just came out and they are moving this quickly to improve on them? At the rate they're going, people holding off for the next year model additions will never be able to buy one at the rate they are making these changes. Way to keep the cars fresh though and something GM really needs to learn and wrap their hands around if they want to stay competitive in any segments they come out ahead in.
SRT AWD Dart? Seriously? Hahah, AWD in a compact like that will own the Ford Focus ST and Buick Verano Turbo.
Wish they had news on a Fiat 159 AWD wagon for North America. But I'm kind of sick of even talking about wagons anymore. The U.S. has just abandoned the idea.
The Opel Astra and VW Scirocco need to be in North America.
