    Some weekend reading has arrived...

    2013 GM Car & Truck (Fleet) Guide

    Note the new Verano 1ST model.

    Note the NG Malibu gets 10 airbags as last generation becomes fleet only.

    I can't wait to drive a Verano 1ST with the turbo and manual.

    2.5L Malibu will have 197 HP apparently.

    I really appreciate this stuff at GMI.

    I find it odd that anyone would consider a CTS 2 door as a 'fleet vehicle' but whatever.

    Other deep thought: XTS?

    The front of the Traverse makes more sense now that I looked at it right after the Malibu and Impala. I like it more but still don't like the goofy headlights.

    Thanks for posting the guide...

    The Verano 1ST Turbo looks like an interesting package... I'd like to see retail pricing for this model.

    How sad is it that the Chevrolet Cruze and next gen Malibu have more color choices than the "premium" Buick models, Verano, Regal and LaCrosse?

    I saw a Chevy Captiva in New Jersey last weekend, with Jersey plates. Is that vehicle that is sold in the US? My wife asked me about it and I said it must have been purchased in Canada. Did I miss something, because selling the Equinox next to the Captiva would create unnecessary competition on the showroom floor, right? That, and it's nothing more than a Vue with a Chevy badge. Also, in the book right after the LaCrosse the Impala really smacks with its blandness and age. That new one can't hit dealers soon enough (even if it is a good, simple car to own).

    Chevrolet logic is so screwed up, they can sell Captiva next to Equinox, but not HHR, Trax or Orlando...

    Captiva is not sold in Canada either.

    Captiva is 100% fleet only.

    It was a quick fix to keep the Equinox flow maxed to retail and protect pricing/resale value.

    The Captivas are sold as fleet only... I also live in NJ. One fella who lives on my road now has a Captiva as his "work" vehicle. He used to drive a Ford Escape for his job. I don't know him well, he's sort of a "friend of a friend." Otherwise I would have gone to check out the Captiva up close by now. I used to work for a Saturn store so I'm kind of interested how close the total package is to the former Vue.

    I noticed that the 1.8L is not listed under the Cruze and the 1.4L Turbo shows as standard. Is the 1.8L being droped in the Cruze?

    So, this FLEET GUIDE, doesn't represent civilian sales, does it. Some of the readers are confusing me by not reading the title.

    regal doesnt get camera or BLIS or rear cross traffic alert! Wow. Even the Cruze gets those features. All they added was a heated steering wheel. Thats sad. They dont specify which turbo engine is in the Regal but I can only assume its the new 260hp turbo.
