Just as the CTS wagon faded into the sunset, and many drivers mourned its passing, GM’s Mark Reuss, VP of Global Product Development, Purchasing and Supply Chain, said in an interview with FoxNews that “I still think no one’s offered a really good, affordable wagon in the United States. You know, mainstream, fun, good-looking, hot-looking, fun-to-drive wagon at a reasonable price point.”
With the term “reasonable price point” mixed in, there might be a tiny chance that a manual transmission could get thrown in there too. Add a little bit of luck and, given GM’s recent rediscovery of diesels, there could be a great American-made competitor to the VW Jetta diesel. Reuss didn’t stop there, he added: “It’d have to be really fun to drive, otherwise people aren’t going to get out of the crossover and the mini-crossover market.”
So there you have it, just a tiny sliver of hope that the American car market will not be made out of politically correct EVs and trucks that many body shops cannot work on yet.
