Half car/truck from Australia in the pipeline for North America: Remember the Chevrolet El Camino, basically a two door Chevelle with a truck bed in place of a trunk and a rear seat? It seems that General Motors will sell a rebadged/reworked version of the Holden VE Commodore Ute in North America, which emulates the El Camino at least in spirit. GM is already planning to import 50,000 Commodore sedans, which will be North Americanized and sold here as the Pontiac G8. The new Pontiac trucklet will be named the G8 ST for Sport Truck and will only be available with the 6.1 liter V8, which is the G8 sedan optional engine. How will it sell? Hopefully better than the SSR pickup, which, despite powertrain upgrades and price slashing, just didn make it.Mini to be made in America? The hip, fun and trendy brand known as Mini might be making a big investment in North America. Mini Oxford, England, plant is currently running flat out and likely does not have the production space/capacity necessary for the Monte. The Monte arrives late in 2008.Volks to add sporty version of Tiguan small wagon: The hot news coming out of the recent Essen, Germany, Motor Show this week is that Volkswagen will launch an R Line version of its baby sport utility vehicle, the Tiguan, a move that intended to give this small machine a bit more sporting flair and perhaps more horsepower. The package includes new front and rear bumpers, wider fender extensions, a different grille, large 19 inch wheels and badging. The Sleuth hears that VW might add a high output V6 engine to the Tiguan R, which could make it much more appealing when it lands here early next year.
