    Your ideal Chevy Lineup...

    Post your ideal Chevy lineup here!

    Just figured that since people are now starting to post their lineups in my thread, I'd start one for everyone to post their lineups at, and give everyone an oppertunaty to discuss their ideas, what they like and dislike, etc. Please, DONT FLAME SOMEONE if you don't like what they posted. Just give them constructive criticism... helpful feedback and debating... all that good stuff

    I think it would be pretty redundant to have two my my same posts floating around, so I'll just give a link... check mine out if you're at all confused on how to do this...

    The Camaro however should stay RWD. Remember it is not supposed to be practical.
    The Cobalt is just fine as is.
    The Aveo is just fine as is. Maybe make an adaptaion of the ecotec for it as an upgrade.
    The truck are fine as is. Just normal updates to stay competetive. Try somehow though to make the Silverado ride better for everyday people. Its a bit rough with its leaf springs. I may get more specific when time permits. Actually people, look at Chevys 1982 lineup. You will notice a nice mix of the new FWD's and the old RWD's. Something on that order is what I am really thinking about. They had something in 1982 to please anybody with the exception of the low horsepower engines typical of 1982.

    The Malibu should NOT be thrown in with a Chevelle (the chevelle has much more prestige than that), instead there should only be an Impala with a 6 cylinder engine with optional AWD, it still being a FWD car with no RWD option.
    The Monte Carlo should be RWD only with a V8 stuck under the hood being similar to the object of the CTS-V, to make a quick, sporty like car but still have luxury as a large part.
    Get rid of the Cavalier, no need for it as long as the Cobalt is in the line-up. Still offer the Cobalt SS Supercharged yet bump up the engine to the 2.4L and slap the SC on it to give it street credibility over the SRT4.
    Keep the Avalanche the same, they look great.
    The Aveo is as fuel efficient as Chevy can get without sticking in a hybrid version, so that is fine.
    The Camaro should either come out, or be kept for another time, depending on whether Chevy would want to bring the Chevelle back. Of course both would be suited with 400-430 hp V8's to live up to their reputations and out do the past generations.
    Keep the Colorados, but offer the Extreme package like from the S-10's, upgrade the 6 cylinders to output enough power to keep up with competing manufactors and optional V8's.
    Give the Silverado a small power booster with the V8 and make the SS's a tad bit more powerful and the rest is fine.
    One other thing that i think would be a good idea would to be to come out with a whole SS line and make commercials with that, and have them all actually be very good vehicles. To compare to the SVT from Ford and the SRT lineup from Dodge. Even though the SVT lineup is over except for the Stang (for now), do not make a mistake like Ford did with the SVT Focus, underpowering a car was a big mistake for coming up to late in the sport compact game to catch on. Offer the Cobalt SS, the Silverado SS,the Monte Carlo SS, the Impala SS, and (depending on which they would decide on), a Chevelle or Camaro SS. All of the cars with RWD except for the Cobalt and Impala, which would have AWD. Also, a 6 speed manual would be standard on the Cobalt SS.

    Yes... got a few more lineups to go... and takes a while, huh?

    And I like your solution I think it'd benefit Chevy and make both the Chevelle and MC followers happy to see their car in the lineup as a RWD V8 coupe...

    Re: Your ideal Chevy Lineup...

    Here would be my ideal lineup. I would add DOD to all V8's and above, and add 3 valves per cylinder to all engines feasible. AWD is the way of the future, I'd go ahead and take full advantage of my share in Subaru and steal their AWD system. Primary competitors, Toyota/Ford

    Astro
    axed

    Avalanche
    Redesign, 5.3 HO (which completely replaces other 5.3), available AWD for those non offroad types. Trims:
    LS: 5.3 345/4WD/AWD/RWD/$30k
    LT: 5.3 345/6.0 395/7.5 440/4WD/AWD/RWD/$33k

    Aveo
    Add 3-door hatchback model, redesign front fascia. Replace 1.6 with 2.0 non supercharged, 130 HP. Trims
    LS: 2.0 135 HP/FWD/$8k
    LT: 2.0 135 HP/FWD/more options standard/$12k
    SS: 2.4 180 HP/FWD/AWD/$19k

    Epica/Nomad
    Four door model to replace current Malibu in Chevy lineup. Smaller than replacement Malibu, but larger than Camaro. Would include Nomad wagon model. Trims:
    LS: 2.4 180 HP/FWD/$18k
    LT: 3.0 205 HP/FWD/AWD/more standard options/$20k

    Camaro
    Kappa platform, placing it closer to original size. Placed slightly upmarket from Cobalt. Engine choices would be:
    LS: 4.0 280 HP/RWD/AWD/$18.5k
    Z28: 5.3 LS4 360 HP (c'mon its gotta make more HP than the regular vortec version)/RWD/AWD/$21k
    SS: 6.5 475 HP/RWD/AWD/$24k

    Chevelle
    Zeta platform, midsize musclecar. 2 door placed in luxury sport market. Trims:
    LS: 6.0 425 HP/RWD/AWD/$26k
    SS: 6.5 475 HP LS5 V8 (6.5 for 396)/RWD/AWD/$28k

    Cobalt
    leave alone except for increase in HP. make supercharged engine availabe in sedan, alone with coupe styling only for SS sedan. Trims:
    LS: 2.0 135 HP/FWD/$12.5k
    LT: 2.4 180 HP/FWD/more standard stuff/$14k
    SS: 2.0 SC 220 HP/AWD/$18k

    Colorado
    Mostly as is Trims:
    LS: 2.4 180 HP/3.7 235 HP/4WD/AWD/RWD/$13.5k
    LT: 2.8 180 HP/3.7 235 HP/4.8 285 HP/4WD/AWD/RWD/$15k
    SS: 4.8 305 HP/RWD/AWD/$19k

    Corvette
    Leave as is except of course an increase in HP. Trims:
    Base: 6.0 425 HP/RWD/AWD/$42k

    Anyway that's what I would be working to create or would have in production already, you know depending on when I control Chevrolet. I think the hardest part of this whole thing is deciding if I wanted to please the Chevelle crowd or the Monte crowd.

    Edited, removed 5.0 engine much as it pains me, changed Lumina to Bel Air, until I can think of a new name altogether. Also added very competitive pricing. Not sure how feasible they are, but that is trying to sell without rebates. Removed 8.1 replaced with a 6.5 liter Vortech derived from my LS5 396. Would have more horespower and torque than current 8.1 V8.

    Re: Your ideal Chevy Lineup...

    A brand with a common design theme, not a design that keeps changing from year to year based on the whims of some marketing guys. Case in point: the HHR, Malibu Maxx, and new Monte Carlo. Other than the bowtie there is no consistent styling theme to the cars. Go to a Honda, Nissan or Toyota dealership and you see a common, dare I say "comforting" lineup of similarly designed sheetmetal.

    Chevy seems like GM's place to dump all of its ideas and excess cars, not a serious brand with a serious image.

    A Colorado next to a Suburban next to an SSR....its a hodge-podge of styling, and GM just can't seem to choose what theme to stick with.

    Though it varies, the bowtie w/ the bar across the front (some more noticable than others) is common on alotta Chevy's...
