Saw those before, can't really see much of the styling, but we know it's a Lambda.

Lambda = Saturn Outlook, GMC Acadia, Buick Enclave, and the Chevy Traverse... whic needs a better name IMO.

Traverse reminds me of a WW2 game..in a tank..the gunner is like "TRAVERSE! TRAVERSE!"

I don't care much for the Lambdas...they look incredibly bulgy and bulky for their little wheels and the such.

They're designed pretty good, I think the Buick Enclave is the best vehicle out of GM ever so far.
The market for cross-overs is quickly replacing the market for mid-size SUVs, so the timing on these vehicles is good.

They're actually more roomy than a mid-size SUV, but lower to the ground, lighter, and way more fuel efficient.

And safer, since they use smaller engines..so horrible driving cell-phone using soccermoms don't get a bigass V8.
I like the enclave, but I think they're making too many other versions of it..saturn..chevy..gmc..I think even Pontiac has one or is getting one.

Nope, since Buick and GMC both have one, Pontiac will not be getting one.

Remember, Buick-Pontiac-GMC is one division.

Eh, I still want them to bring back the Blazer..only SUV I actually ever liked .
There's an idea..build a SUV version of the Colorado.
Throw a 5spd in with the 5 cylinder and I'd be all over it.

I like the plan for the Colorado as is....

Can you say 295hp 5.3L V8?
(same goes for the Canyon, and the H3)

I like that they're putting a V8 in..but I wish GM would stop neglecting their stick-drivers(or wannabe stick-drivers).
It's really hard to find a mid-range GM vehicle with a stickshift..either have to go bottom of the barrel or top of the line.

I know a guy that has the smaller 3.5l 5 cylinder..he can get over 30mpg highway with his 5spd. That's with a respectable 225hp. The new 5 cylinder cranks out 242..a few mods and a 5spd with that thing and it would be pretty badass.
