But isuzu is on its way out in the U.S. market. and Opel- vauxhall-Holden, have shown no interest in the to be built in thailand vehicle.

Hey, I think I know why Holden/Opel/Vauxhall all stuck their nose's up at the new generation Frontera?? I think it's because it's basically a 5dr wagon version of the Isuzu/Holden/Opel Rodeo pickup. I think they learnt from the last generation Frontera that it doesn't pay to have a Pickup and SUV that look the same, they need two differentley styled vehicles.

GD dude, that looks pretty sweet!!! Not bad at all mate!!! I really like how you've managed to keep the front end look, to keep with the Holden Cruze, Vectra and Rodeo. You should send it over to the GM guy's to see what kind of reaction you get!!

Not completely clearly the situation is at present also with OPELS. 1991 and in the subsequent years with the Frontera as wegbereiter of the German jeep wave celebrated, the Ruesselsheimer in this lucrative market segment had to leave due to careless quality and model care duly to feathers/springs. The current and only Frontera B moderately successful in the sales must hold out still to at least 2005, until suitable replacement comes. Thereby a company-spreading project which uses in this year the again introduced Chevrolet Equinox as basis, is most realistic. The GM daughter OPEL is to make from it an OPEL Frontera C. With 4.60 m the beginner remains then also as OPEL within the dimensions of the past Frontera Viertuerers, is however completely differently designed. With self-supporting body, all around as well as permanent all-wheel drive without area reduction the Equinox/Frontera the usual SUV pattern follows independent suspensions. As OPEL the project receives another front portion and for Europe more suitable engines. In the USA the Chevrolet with one 3,4-Liter-V6-Benziner and 185 HP runs. The version with lightning will receive against it petrol engines from OPELS as well as Fiat turbo-Diesels. Are applicable a 2.2-Vierzylinder-Benziner with 150 HP, a 3.2-V6 with 210 HP as well as a 2.4-Common-Rail-Turbodiesel with 150 HP. The whole at a price starting from 25.000 euro? more success than momentary would be safe of OPELS.

the styling on the german rendering is great but the vehicle is to small for the gm theta(vue/equinox) platform
