This. I'm interested in this SS that's coming, but if they bring a kick-ass wagon, I'd opt for that.

The US and Australia have a free trade agreement which means they are not subject to that 25% tariff.

They've been teasing us with this ute since I first saw one at a GM sponsored event in 2001. I was set to buy one when the Pontiac truck was coming out. My Goat was paid for and I needed something to haul my dog (an english mastiff) in. I feel like this is another round or Charlie Brown and Lucy with the football. The Chevy Caprice front clip is not nearly as sharp looking as the Pontiac version and I'm not sure my (now elderly) dog will still be around IF they come through with it this time. A dozen years is a long time to wait for a vehicle that is already produced in another country. It's not like they have been developing a new product or anything.

Incorrect. Same interior as a G8 GT but with later upgrades. VE has already had a dash upgrade and the VF interior wil no doubt be different again.

A Ute is based off a G8/Commodore. I hope it comes this way and with some great options. Because if GM Charlie Brown's us again.......
