Post 10 vehicles that will redefine the auto industry in the next year

jup, and one of them is the camaro:
Quote:
2010 Chevrolet Camaro

The 422-horsepower V8 may dominate headlines, but the V6 model of Chevrolet's reincarnated sport coupe will probably determine the car's success. The 300-horsepower V6 has enough grunt to make the modern and beautiful Camaro a true sports car.

Chevrolet predicts an EPA rating of 26 m.p.g. on the highway, as good or better than less-powerful V6 sport coupes like the Ford Mustang, Dodge Challenger, Honda Accord and Nissan Altima. The 2010 Camaro is to go on sale early next year.

I agree with that. For the first time in it's history you can get the 6 and not feel like you settled for second best.

I would like to point out the two Chevy vehicles at the top of the list.

I think the new Malibu should still be in there. It's just now getting a reputation. This Malibu is home run for GM. They need some more colors for the paint. Then again I guess Camaro's going into that market crowd.

Vash, this article is just for cars new or significantly updated for 2010.

Finally, an automotive article that wasn't paid for by Toyota and actually admits Detroit makes some good products.

Decent article but I wish the Toymotor 'buttkissing' would quit. The subtitle references the next Prius. Whatever. It should be noted that not only 2 of the vehicles are Chevy's, 5 are American brands.
The Toy Venza shouldn't even be on the list, read the statements about it, nothing groundbreaking or innovative about it. The article is supposed to be about changing the industry. The Venza won't.
I'd list the following vehicles coming from Chevy as game changers; Camaro, Traverse, Volt, Cruze (hey, a small car from Chevy that will make them a profit). There might be even more but I can't think of them off the top of my head.
