    No it wouldn't. The additional costs to design, market, and produce those cars would be more than the additional revenue. Large cars are not selling.

    I can guarantee you that Chevrolet could move Omega in numbers just as great as Charger/300 if the Impala name was on it. Impala can move units on name alone.

    Then again, scratch that. GM would charge $60,000.00 for it and wonder why it's indeed NOT selling.

    You think they can sell an Omega chassis car at Impala pricing? Especially with added development costs? The Charger/300 are like the old W chassis GM cars now. All the development costs are done and recovered. The chassis is ancient. They can blow them out relatively cheaply.

    Or Ford. Cars wise.. At this point Ford will only have the Mustang, Continental, and MKZ. GM will have Malibu, Sonic, Spark, Camaro, Vette, Regal, TourX, CT4, CT5, and CT6. Really wish they would reconsider the Impala and LaX.. Not to mention turn the Sonic into a true Cruze sized replacement perhaps moving the Spark up to the size of the Sonic.

    Makes no sense unless she just wants an Elantra.. cheaply made as it is... Why? Because I know for a fact that she can find a new Cruze still on the lot in every color under the rainbow. Seriously always bewilders me when a car is discontinued and people say they have to go to a competitor when said car is still sitting on the lot available I mean I can still get a LaX.. New.. Hell I might even be able to find a new Chevy SS somewhere lol

    Yes.. They can. Due to the actual Global numbers of the CT6 I bet good money the platform is paid for.. Also... They could always use the platform in a slightly less complicated config for Chevy and amortize even further those costs. Hell of a lot more than just killing it altogether. An Omega based Impala full range in the same engine config as the current Camaro would be killer.. Put GM MAINSTREAM performance back on the map

    If they did that, then just cancel the Spark. No sense in cancelling the Cruze and moving everything else up a class.

    Elantras aren't cheaply made, I leased a 2017 that I turned in a month ago to purchase a Sonata. Hyundai has come a long way from the econoboxes they made in the 90s. I test drove a Cruze side-by-side with the Elantra and the Elantra impressed me more. I may be a GM guy at heart, but Hyundai has won me over.

    I am not talking about development costs. I suspect Omega is expensive to produce with the mixed material welding etc. Omega was for caddy, so production cost was not as much of a factor as say the platform shared by XTS/LaX/Impala. And it shows, you can get a caddy XTS for much less than a CT-6 and was always the case. Worse, both LaX and Impala numbers were falling anyway. I don't like the fact that CUV's are all that is selling, but it IS a fact that shareholders do worry about. I'll be delighted if GM manages to hold onto just a few sedans like the CT6/5/4. I will not be surprised if they get down to 1 or 2 if current trends continue.

    Ya know, I bet someone at GM thought that about the Alpha platform and the Camaro. I'm sure they thought the Camaro would sell in large numbers to balance the lower volume Cadillacs.
