Equipment List (Standard/Optional) for listed cars COMPLETED!
A small, fuel-efficient sub-compact, basically being what it is now, with the current models. Replace current engine with one that is more fuel-efficient. Offer diesel engine. Much improved interior in material, ergonomics, and overall design. Exterior is still "cute", but adds a touch of a dramatic look to it. Prices range from about $7,500-$13,000. Offer hybrid engine. Offered in coupe or sedan.
A fairly sporty, very luxurious premium compact car with the level of refinement and luxury, as well as standard equipment and the options that would almost put an Accord EX V6 (best of their Accord's) to shame. Up the interior quality a little more (less plastic, more luxury and better material). Far more dramatic, sleek, somewhat muscular, luxurious design that makes it a standout. Prices range from about $14,000-$17,000. Offers SS (ranging from $26,000-$28,000) model having a 2.5, high-output, turbo-charged I-5 with optional AWD with taunt and slightly lowered suspension as well as different fascial and wheels that make the appearance have an in-your-face design and attitude. Offered in coupe, hatch, and sedan. LTe (luxury version) offers extremely smooth ride, outstandingly quiet interior, and luxury you'd expect from Acura-level cars.
A very conservative, casually styled midsize sedan, relative in size to the Camry. Has more options, more luxurious interior, a little more power, and similar in price. I4 and V6 option. FWD. LTe comes completely loaded with everything. Priced from $17,000-$31,000. Extremely refined and comfortable. No SS.
The return of the Bel Air! This V-6 and V-8 powered, RWD (optional AWD) sedan is larger than the average midsized family car, but is smaller than the Chevelle and Impala in size. Relative in size to the '57 Bel Air. Extremely luxurious interior, very comfortable. Fully loaded, this car feels like, drives like, and is near the level of a C-class in refinement and equipment. The legendary "Power Pack" option in back on the Bel Air, which will put a 400 hp V-8 under the hood vs. the top of the line 350 hp V-8, and adds chrome tipped twin outlet duel exhaust (over the basic duel exhaust) and a little bit of aluminum trimming inside. Sport Pack is also avaliable, which will beef up the suspension, lower the car slightly, and give the car a bit more aggressive fascial instead of a sweeping, dramatic, "LOOK AT ME!" look. Priced between $19,000 base and $35,000 fully loaded with the two packs ($30,000 without Sport Pack). Sedan, Coupe, Convertible. Built to absolutely kill the midsized competition and return Chevy's '55-'57 heritage of offering everything the competition does and doesn't with a common-mans price. LTe (luxury version) offers extremely soft-riding suspension and more comfortable ride, as well as a full list of standard luxury options.
Based off of the Chevy SS concept design (many of the ideas, such as the sleekness, the bulging fenders, and the tail lights, among many other things, are carried over), it is a very aggressive and in-your-face, very bold styling, RWD, V-8 powered car starting at around $18,000 and go up to around $35,000. All-out performance muscle car. Base engine is a 300-325 hp V8, SS offers a 450-hp or so V-8. Offered in coupe (normal and convertible) as well as sedan. El Camino is a Chevelle with the Camino rear end.
Fitting just below the Chevelle in size, this RWD, V-8 powered coupe stays true to its heritage. GT-like ride and performance. A bold and understatedly aggressive design. Some styling cues from Chevy SS concept. Priced from around $27,000-$37,000. SS optional with around 400+ hp. Luxury performance coupe.
Same car as the Chevy SS concept with a couple changes to be able to offer it at a competitive price and production rate. Priced from around $26,000-$36,000. Only V-8 is offered, no V-6. Very comfortable car, luxurious, stylish car. Plenty of power to back up its aggressive looks and stance. SS gets a more powerful version of Chevelle SS 454 V8 engine, having around 470 hp or so. Offered in coupe (normal and convertible) as well as sedan.
