According to Autoblog, the Cadillac XTC could form the basis of a new large Opel/Vauxhall Omega. That could be fun, always liked the Omega
Isn't the Insignia already huge? Will a new Omega come with its own helipad and gravitational pull?
If I knew what I was getting into, I wouldn't have done it...and I would have been wrong.
I really hope so! I loved the Omega! Will it be RWD?
Given its name, should we not have seen the last of the Omega?
(For those of you with the benefits of a classical education)
Also, wouldn't it be best if Alfa Romeo made it? Then we could have the "Alfa Omega"!
BMW 3 GT - All the car you need.
I cut my teeth on the Senator and then the Omega. Totally underated. Although the interiors were typically horrible 90s Vauxhall. Didn't really matter when the chassis was so good.
I'm now on all fours
Just found this.....
takes me back.
I don't think it will be RWD, its based XTC is based on the epsilon II platform, which is FWD and 4WD
I thought the topic of this thread was promising, but then I read the post above and cannot see the point - the monstrous Insignia already comes with FWD or AWD so quite where would a new Omega fit in? If it doesn't have RWD it is certainly NOT a new Omega.
They could just import regular versions of the Holden Commodore as a new Omega, rather than only the HSV versions as VXR models. Much better looking, and could be sold with more realistic engines.
Mr Disco Stu, I was thinking this as well. The Commodore is a vast and very sharply-styled car, is RWD and handles very well.
All it needs for the UK is a good diesel engine, and it should be at least as successful as the Chrysler 300C.
Your post is very exciting and informative. I am planning to decide on a career move and this has helped me with one aspect. Thanks man!
