GM planning rear-wheel drive sedans for Chevrolet and Cadillac brands

Article by Christian A., on September 28, 2010

According to the latest reports, it appears that GM revived plans for a sporty, rear-wheel drive Chevrolet sedan. The plans for this car we abandoned last year when GM was heading into bankruptcy. And that is not the only car GM is preparing, as sources confirmed the fact that the manufacturer will build a rear-wheel Cadillac sedan.

Apparently, this new car will carry a price of around $130,000, which means it will take on cars such as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and the Bmw 7-Series.

Both vehicles are expected to make their debut by mid-decade. The new cars are expected to be developed on GM’s next-generation rwd Zeta vehicle platform. This new platform will be re-engineered, using high-strength steel to reduce weight and sources confirmed that two wheelbases will be planned.

The Chevrolet sedan will be developed on the shorter wheelbase, and conceptually be a four-door Camaro. The Cadillac sedan is expected to boost company’s sales and draw attention to the brand in China and Europe.

Apparently, the new Cadillac sedan will have few styling cues from the Cadillac Sixteen concept introduced in 2003. It will use the long wheelbase Zeta platform as well as a smaller V8 engine. [via MotorTrend]
