Report: GM CEO wants new Opel Cascada in the United States

Opel recently took the covers off of the 2013 Cascada Convertible for the European market and of course, we like enough that we want it offered in the United States. Well, we just might get it.

According to AutoWeek, when General Motors CEO Dan Akerson saw the car he immediately wanted to bring the model to the United States:

While GM has yet to officially confirm whether the Cascada will be offered in North America, Opel sources suggest it has already met with approval from high-ranking U.S.-based officials. “[CEO] Dan Akerson was so thrilled about the Cascada that he asked: ‘Why don’t we bring it to the U.S,’ ” was how one insider summed up the reaction to the new Opel.

If the car does come to the United States – it will most likely be badged a Buick.

The 2013 Opel Cascada will be launched in Europe early next year with a range of 4-cylinder turbo gasoline and diesel engines with output ranging from 140-hp to 170-hp.
