It figures, Chevy gets it's muscle from abroad. The Austrailian import is pretty bad-ass, but couldn't be built in the US. The green people at GM wouldn't allow it to be sold to the public, because it would lower their (federally-mandated) MPG goals. I guess we'll have to wait for a used one at a police auction. I'll try to get behind the wheel of one at work, before the drunks puke in the back seat.
2012 Chevrolet Caprice Owner Opens Up About Purchasing Rare Super Sedan
From its humble inception in 1959 to iconic status of the '60s—one so influential designer Mary Quant named...
Its about time GM brought back the caprice its an american favorite,I've always loved that car it shouldnt have taken so long GM
Yet another sell out by Chevrolet. They truly forgot who the customers are that allow them to operate. The shell of a vehicle you now call the Impala would make my father roll in his grave. And you wonder why we are buying imports. Good luck in your bankruptcy. Time for this company to go.
At the very least, GM should make the civilian version available on a special order basis. The exclusivity alone would make it worth a couple extra grand. (the G8 was never available with the 3.6DI and six speed auto)
I totally agree with the post that Carl did on August 17, 2011 I think the whole American automobile industry lost greatly when they went to FWD in most of their vehicles. When the 'newly-designed' Monte Carlo by Chevy was promised, I think it was in the 90's time-frame, I was planning to purchase a new one. To my amazement GM made it a FWD. After driving a 1972 Monte Carlo with the 402 engine for 6.5 years I was convinced that that was the best driving chevy one could have. I looked for a car that had my ideal set-up and found it in the 1993 Lexus ES300. I bought a 1994 LX400 with RWD and drove it for 11 years. Chevrolet could learn from these articles and make the necessary changes to their American Management for only profit mindset and give us the public the auto we desire and not what they only want to do. Until then I will drive other products. GK
Go green idiots can keep their front drive Impala! I want Chevrolet's true flagship sedan The Caprice! In my book the impala name went to hell the day it went front drive. Let alone the bland rental car status it has now. The Caprice name stayed true to what it always was a "large rear drive true fullsize" The Caprice name has loads of heritage behind it that could be used on the next generation. Saving the traditional fullsize American car is possible, long live Caprice! I speak for all cars!
