At the Automotive Press Association luncheon yesterday, Bob Lutz spoke to reporters about some new plans for GM's upcoming products.
In the on-again, off-again saga of bringing rear-wheel drive to the U.S., Lutz dropped a hint about it being "on" again with the quip, "it's a pusher, not a puller." No word yet whether the oft-speculated Camaro is back in the pipeline.
Lutz also played down the buzz in the media about the GMT900 platform being the sole foundation upon which GM is staging its comeback. At the Detroit auto show this January, Lutz said GM will unveil the first of three mid-size crossover vehicles. He also stated plans to ultimately offer 14 crossovers in the coming years, which will make up about 20 percent of GM's total production.
