Thats lame. 140 hp 1.4 in a 3000 pound car. And then have the audacity to call it a "chevelle?" GTFO.


THIS is a Chevelle:

base model 6 cylinder chevelles of that era only made around 140hp... and i guarantee they weighed more than 3k lbs.

that being said, i'd rather see them do another "retro" car instead of bringing back an old namesake for this car.

Don't call it a chevelle, and make the 1.4 its base engine. A turbo 6 would be perfect for it.

If they call that a Chevelle every Chevelle owner should drive up to GM HQ and smack everybody in GM's marketing dept.

Yeah there's more info in the other thread that GM Goodwrench - GT posted. I say if it was LSX swapped, THEN it can be called a Chevelle

effing horrible. whoever decided a turbo 1.4 was a great engine needs to be slapped in the nuts. You can't call a car with motorcycle horsepower sporty, i can't take it. what happened to the good 4 or 6 cylinder cars? why go backwards?

This concept was at the Chicago Auto Show. It is god-awful ugly in person. They had computer terminals there where you could vote for which Chevy concept was better. There was this one, and another one that looked like a Lambo. It was pretty bad a$$. I told the one Chevy rep that this concept looked like it had Down Syndrome and needed to be taken out back and shot. Then I hit on the models that were showing off the Volt and had her laughing and what not for about a half an hour by me. it was a good day, lol

THIS is a Chevelle:



"Let me tell you what Melba Toast is packin' right here, all right. We got 4:11 Positrac outback, 750 double pumper, Edelbrock intake, bored over 30, 11 to 1 pop-up pistons, turbo-jet 390 horsepower. We're talkin' some @!#$in' muscle."

Think Nova would fit a car of that size then chevelle.


I miss my Cavalier, even if it made 100 hp on a cold day and had more suspension then it deserved.

The Tru 140S



Same weak engine, though. They need to offer these things at least with the LNF, but I'd really love to see one with the LP9.

Yep, this is it. Looks really awesome in person. Much better then this C130-R garbage.

I did tell the rep she was lying though. They were trying to claim that IF the TRU-140S were to go to production, that it would cost under $20K. Looks like this, great fuel economy, unique style, etc for much less then a Cruze or a Sonic? Come on . . . This is GM. Their 2013 Malibu's are damn near $30K . . . and it's a Malibu, lol
