    Default Anyone know if Chevrolet makes a new RWD car?

    HI All,

    I was just wondering if anyone knows if Chevrolet still made a full sized RWD sedan. Besides trucks and Corvettes?

    I don't think so, but according to this article written last year there might be 2 in the works:

    no they dont and dont ever expect to see another one again, even though there have been talks, with the eceonmy and the CAFE standards they just cant afford to take the risk of another RWD sedan, unless you live in the middle east, out there they still have a Lumina but it is a rebadged Pontiac G8

    Going along with the middle east area but they do have the Caprice still... I think. I'm not even sure if they were RWD though so correct me if I am wrong.

    Yeah the Camaro's coming out in early 2010, but your not going to like this part. At it's unveiling it will only be available in a V-6 version (BOO!), I was really hoping that the rumors of dropping that fat 7.0 with the magna charger were going to be true. The way I look at it is, if you want gas mileage go buy a Cobalt, or Malibu or even an Impala! There are still some die hard Chevy racing fans out there like myself, that don't give a damn about the gas prices and want a REAL competitor to the Dodge Challenger! I will wait until they finally get their head out of their ass, and make a good example that American Muscle still lives on! USA, USA!!!!

    once the economy gets better they will put the big boy in there. problem is they have a percentage on how many vehicles get a certain gas mileage and above of there total amount sold.

    That's right. For some reason I was thinking just GM but you said Chevrolet. Duh.

    I just dont understand why Chevy did not keep a few RWD cars. Ford still has the Crown Vic and the Police depts seem to favor the RWD cars. I dont think the FWD cars can take the beating (for a service vehicle) like RWD. The local county Sheriffs dept went to Impalas but are now switching back to the Crown Vics because of transmission problems. My friend has an 07 Impala SS with the V8 engine. I think its a nice car but better hold onto that steering wheel on hard take off or you can lose control.
