After GM renewed the “EL Camino” moniker on August 9th, it’s now time for the ‘Nomad’ trademark to get its upgrade.
After the 2014 Chevrolet SS, an updated version of the VF Holden Commodore sedan, will go on sale in the US in 2013, there’s also the possibility of a renewed ute version. The Commodore Ute already has a rebadged version, the Pontiac G8 Sport Truck which GM unveiled three years ago, a model that quickly became very popular with enthusiasts.
GM confirmed the rumors that the next Commodore will come to North America by the end of 2013 as the new Chevrolet SS rear-drive performance sedan. The company added that the SS will also be GM’s next NASCAR Sprint Cup racecar starting with the 2013 Daytona 500.
Now there is speculation that GM plans to import both the Holden Commodore sedan as its new Chevrolet SS, and also the Commodore Ute and Commodore Sportwagon as its modern versions of its Chevy El Camino and Nomad. A spokesman for Holden in Australia said that the automaker has not taken a decision on further exports, but the free trade agreement between Australia and the US has been renewed.
