    Default GM's Los Angeles Auto Show Lineup Emphasizes Fun, Function And Fuel Efficiency

    LOS ANGELES – General Motors increases its North American product pace by featuring seven new models for a number of its brands at the upcoming Greater Los Angeles Auto Show, plus a new concept, the GMC PAD.

    “From economical cars, to sport coupes, to people- and cargo-haulers, the range of GM vehicles shown in L.A. demonstrates our commitment to meet many transportation needs,” said Mark LaNeve, General Motors North America vice president of Vehicle Sales, Service and Marketing.

    Chevy will feature the newly redesigned 2007 Aveo sedan, the all-new 2007 Suburban flagship SUV and the Corvette Z06 Daytona Pace Car.

    GMC is featuring the 2007 Yukon XL, and Pontiac will unveil the 2007 Solstice GXP performance variant.

    Saab will present an ethanol-fueled concept vehicle and a 20 th Anniversary Edition 9-3 Convertible.

    Here’s a quick look at GM’s 2006 LA collection:

    2007 Chevy Aveo Sedan: The newly redesigned 2007 Aveo sedan is the spirited successor to the best-selling vehicle in the entry-level segment, and the global face of Chevrolet. The newly redesigned Aveo sedan is the newest member of Chevy’s passenger car family.

    2007 Chevy Suburban: The all-new 2007 Suburban is Chevy’s flagship SUV and is built on GM’s brand-new full-size SUV architecture, combining advanced fuel-saving technologies and changes in design aerodynamics for best-in-class fuel economy. The 2007 Suburban will go on sale in the second quarter of 2006.

    Corvette Z06 Daytona Pace Car: A specially prepared Corvette Z06 will serve as the Official Pace Car of the 48 th annual Daytona 500, on Feb. 19. It wears a unique paint scheme, including Daytona 500 logos, as well as mandated safety equipment and strobe lights. No mechanical modifications or enhancements were needed to prepare the Corvette Z06 for its on-track duty.

    2007 GMC Yukon XL: This all-new, full-size SUV goes on sale in the second quarter of 2006, and is distinguished with sleek, expressive styling that announces a new look for GMC. It offers more power and better fuel economy than the vehicle it replaces.

    2007 Pontiac Solstice GXP: Pontiac ’s product resurgence zooms forward with the introduction of the 2007 Solstice GXP, the performance version of its in-demand Solstice roadster. Solstice GXP features GM’s all-new Ecotec 2.0-liter turbo with direct injection technology, the most powerful production engine in the Ecotec family.

    2006 Saab 9-3 20 Years Edition Aero Convertible : California was made for convertibles, and Saab is celebrating two decades and 240,000 vehicles’ worth of convertible sales success by announcing an anniversary model, the Saab 9-3 20 Years Edition Aero Convertible. Saab 9-3 20 Years Edition Aero Convertible is powered by the all-new 250-horsepower, 2.8L V-6 turbo engine and distinguished by its unique Electric Blue metallic paint finish.

    Saab 9-5 Aero BioPower Concept: The 2.3-liter turbocharged Saab 9-5 Aero BioPower Concept is powered by bio-ethanol (E85), a renewable and sustainable fuel. The concept delivers almost 20 percent more maximum power – 310 hp vs. 260 hp and 25 percent more torque – 325 lb.-ft. vs. 258 lb.-ft. than its gasoline equivalent.

    GMC PAD: Now in its second year, the Design Los Angeles conference and its accompanying Design Challenge are evolving into an integral element of the L.A. Auto Show. GM’s entry, the GMC PAD, is a futuristic, diesel-electric powered urban loft with mobility, a creature comfort-filled concept for living in the ever-changing cultural landscape of Southern California or a modern alternative for those financially locked out of Southern California ’s escalating housing market.
