I wonder if China will get new Sportwagon model like we get in Australia and NZ. I'm sure phaeton would agree it would do well over there.

Original Holden Caprice (luxury model of Holden Commodore) was originally developed and designed in Australia to the tune of AUS$1 billion. Older Commodore and Caprice models have been based on older GM designs, the majority being Opel Omegas.

Holden have called it their 'Billion Dollar Baby', after the movie Million Dollar Baby. It's also sold as a Chevrolet in other Asian markets, most noteably in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

Shanghai GM will update Park Avenue next year. The most important change is new 3.0 litre V6 which will replace existing 2.8 l engine:
http://www.autohome.com.cn/news/200909/71551-1.html

As Shanghai GM's flagship model in the country - Buick Park Avenue (Park Avenue) made has been two and a half years, and eventually into the mid-term facelift product of time, and soon Shanghai GM, the upcoming facelift version of tree-shaded Avenue, the final product will be named as the 2010 models Buick Park Avenue. We have recently received from the boulevard mid-term facelift without disguise spy photos, this model should be available from the pinch can forget that.

● exterior, interior changed little, power upgrade is the biggest highlight of modified models

From the current to the latest information and spy photos of view, Buick Park Avenue in this mid-term facelift will not be too much focus on appearance and interior upgrades as well as the configuration, this section of the most important change change is the change in the powertrain. We know that Buick Park Avenue currently has a total of four two displacement models (2.8L Comfort Edition, 2.8L Elite Edition, 2.8L and 3.6L Deluxe Edition Ultimate Edition). Facelift Boulevard 2.8L version will no longer be offered in favor of upgrading to launch new 3.0L fuel injection engines.

This code-named LF1 most important feature of the V6 engine is the fuel injection technology (in fact, with the new LaCrosse used on the 3.0L SIDI engine is the same product), in power achieved a 190kw (258 hp), while torque is also Up to 295N · m, than the non-cash 2.8L fuel injection engine in the power of raising for almost 40kw and 30N · m, therefore facelift boulevard than cash in the power of raising a lot of models. In addition, the redesigned boulevard also introduced a six-speed automated manual gearbox, this model than the cash five-speed automated manual transmission has escalated, in the engine and gearbox of the double upgrade situation, Lin Yam Avenue in power there will be a great enhancement of the performance, the maximum speed raised to 220km / h, while fuel consumption than the 2.8L version of the 5-10% or so.

Contrast the above table is a cash tree-lined avenue and redesigned boulevard between the main parameters of comparison, is actually very clear that the facelift 3.0L boulevard in cash than the 2.8L model is indeed in power has greatly increased, but the the vehicle length, wheelbase, etc. has not changed.

However, concern is the 3.0L version of models have eliminated narrow 225/60R16 tires; but the full commissioning of the 225/55R17 such limited capabilities, which obviously increased the grip, and enhance the driving comfort; furthermore 3.0L Deluxe Edition will introduce such a super-wide-base tires 245/45R18, but also enhance the aesthetic appearance of the vehicle (wheel shape also changed, the new wheels highlight the shape of the movement on the inside), increasing degrees of luxury.

Although the 3.0L model will be redesigned Boulevard the main, but the 3.6L's flagship model will continue to retain; this model the same manner, the relevant upgrade information obtained from the current point of view, upgrades, also from in power, the new engine, code-named LLT will replace the old paragraph LY7 engine, the biggest difference between the two engines is also a new addition of the former fuel injection features the biggest power from 187kw (254 hp) to upgrade to a 210kw (285 hp), while the torque from 340N · m upgrading to a 350N · m; the transmission on the same upgrade to 6-speed tiptronic transmission. Obviously, change subsection 3.6L Ultimate tree-lined boulevard will likewise have a stronger power output, but it has a fuel consumption in a certain degree of reduction.

It is noteworthy that facelift boulevard 3.6L Ultimate version of the wheel hub also upgraded from 225/55R17 to 245/45R18, an increase of grip, and improved aesthetics degrees.

From other configurations in terms of facelift boulevard, and there is not much change, still have not introduced keyless entry, a key to start and so on are now hardly more advanced technology; it perhaps because of cost considerations, too The introduction of multi-configuration model is bound to result in the total cost of the upgrade.

● modified models are expected to remain unchanged prices

Clearly, change paragraph boulevard major improvement comes from power, the new fuel injection engines and six-speed tiptronic gearbox to the introduction of improved tree-lined Avenue of the dynamic response, and fuel economy that there would be better performance; while rising oil prices today, this improvement is indeed so that the consumers most able to enjoy the experience.

Of course, in some detail, the tree-lined boulevard is also not the point did not change, for example, that the introduction of new tire sizes, improved wheel styling; the same time, the decorative fenders I also made all the more dynamic models; This is the original business taste too heavy tree-lined boulevard more flavor hint of movement inside.

Progress from the current point of view, Shanghai GM may be the fastest 2010 facelift officially launched next month, tree-lined avenue, the latest may have to wait until the Guangzhou auto show in November; in price, we expect the redesigned boulevard most will maintain a similar model with the cash offer.
