2011 El Camino?

These are chops from a Hoden vehicle.

Choppin up the Ute!
I wouldn't mind it, personally.
Here's another article on guesstimation of it:

Personally, I'd love to have one with a 6 cylinder diesel. Cheaper fuel..more power than a gasoline engine..put that with a 6spd manual trans and I'd be in heaven.

I'd like one if they americanized it a bit. I was always a fan of the el camino.

I suppose it's not beyond the realms of possibilites.
I wouldn't mind seeing the El Camino reborn.

With some body work tweaking...I think they would sell.

I know they would sell alot more El Caminos than the previous SSR models.

These vehicles have been selling in Australia for quite a while now.

That body is of the Ute SS. With some body tweaking and a couple of redesigns (better sound system, for one). And the 300hp direct-injection V6 with a 6spd manual..and a sliding rear window and I'd have one in my driveway, that's for sure.

It would be fitting, anyway, the first El Camino-type vehicle GM made was for Australia.
