Hey all...

I'm trying to develop a general rundown of all current (and pending) GM platforms, brief descriptions, and current or future vehicles designed on those platforms.

The info below is everything i was able to find. Can anyone tell me if any of my information is wrong, if I"m missing platforms or vehicles, etc?

Thanks all!





Kappa - small rear-wheel drive (Pontiac Solstice, Saturn Curve, Chevy Nomad)

Theta - compact all-wheel drive (Saturn VUE, Pontiac Torrent, Chevy Equinox)

Delta - small front-wheel drive (Saturn ION, Pontiac Pursuit, Chevy Cobalt, Chevy HHR)

Epsilon - mid-size front and all-wheel drive (Chevry Malibu/Maxx, Pontiac G6, Saab 9-3, Opel Vectra, Buick Bengal (cancelled), Buick Signia (cancelled), Saturn L-Series)

Sigma - luxury rear and all-wheel drive (Cadillac CTS, DTS, SRX and STS)

Lambda - future platform for minivans and crossovers (GMC Terracross, 2007 Saturn crossover, 2008 Buick minivan, 2009 Chevrolet minivan, 2008 Buick Rendezvous, and 2008 Pontiac sport-utility truck.)

Zeta – rear-wheel drive, all-wheel drive, V6 and V8 drivetrains (2007 Buick luxury sedan, 2008 Buick convertible, 2008 Pontiac Grand Prix, 2008 Pontiac GTO, 2008/09 Chevrolet coupe and convertible, 2009 Chevrolet Impala, 2010 Chevrolet Monte Carlo)

Just thinking out loud here. Since the Chevy Impala seems to be doing fine up against the Accord/Camry mabey Chevy will rethink making the Impala/Monte RWD. A RWD coupe/conv (Camaro/Chevelle) will be the Mustang challanger and the new Impala/Monte stay FWD with a V-8 engine option. Since Chevy is the Toyota/Honda compeditor it might be wise to leave them FWD.
