I think this needs a bit more gestation, but it does look promising. My guess, though, is that this sketch is actually what will be the Terrain.

Well the Terrain looks huge compared to that sketch. I was hoping for something sporty but not an SUV. I might just have to get a used Astro and mod it.

I love the looks of this.

Damn. I guess I am going to have to customize something used.

I could always get my Uncles custom Chevy van but I don't think my wife would go for that. It's my inspiration for a custom van.

the article is dated in 2006. This came out as speculation before our 3 lambdas came out.

I can definitely picture the Traverse as a mini-van.. I just hope Chevy does what Hyundai did with theirs - and bring the door handles close for that "suicide doors" look...

Your uncle's van looks pretty sweet, Bad. When I was growing up my dad always had cargo vans around for the business (HVAC), so some of the first auto work I did was to those vans. Engine swaps and such were pretty easy. I always kinda thought about what I'd do to one if I ever got around to it.

I think that a short wheelbase half ton Savannah Van with a high-mpg diesel engine would be perfect. The GM vans already handle better than the Sprinter, Econoline, and Ram Van (not sold anymore).

They need a small diesel that can get over 20mpg overall. The Duramax is great, but it's a bit bigger than what most work vans need...The 6.6L is more for a chassis cab box truck, really. It's overkill for a regular van.

I wonder if GM will revisit the minivan issue with gas prices the way they are.

Or will GM go back to the "original" minivan and actually produce a small van. We have seen hints at a Mazda 5 size minivan.

I was kinda wondering if GM would reconsider a Minivan again because of high gas prices. Maybe the minivan market is on the way back up.

Also I think if they make a minivan, Make the minivan look a minivan with awesome room and great quality. None of this SUVish looking front end.....

Thats right Make Trucks Trucks, SUV's SUV's, Let your Crossovers and Minivans be a little bit more upscale!!!

The Zafira is on it's way, or so I hear from my local Saturn Dealer.
