    Default Chevy FNR-X concept, say it isn't so!

    I'm taking deep breaths and telling myself, "It's only a CONCEPT car!" While the size would delight many, please tell me GM isn't going to compete with Toyota for Ugliest Grille Design! I definitely don't want a car that looks like a cross between Darth Vader and a Predator.

    I'd better grab my Volt fast, before every car looks like it eats children.

    It is a concept. I think it'll look a lot more normal than that, and hopefully will be that size, which will be much more useful to a lot of folks. I love my Volt but I would love it to be bigger, even if it meant a little less range....

    I LIKE it, which is why I'll probably never see it at my dealer. Just seems to work out that way most of the time, with the exception of the car I have now.




    Chevy just doesn't have the stones to produce sweetheart cars like this that might steal away Camaro/Corvette buyers.

    Concept cars are always described as if they—and their wonderful features and capabilities—actually existed. I'll believe it when they show the production car and with specs and pricing. GM is pretty good at showing that they could create a compelling style if they really wanted to. But by the time the production vehicle arrives it's a watered down version lacking much of what made the concept standout.

    I like it too. It's not so different than the Lexus NX, RX models. Have to wonder if it's so far from production, they've been working this one for some time. Bolt battery (or half Bolt battery), with Voltec drivetrain?

    I like it as well. The grill looks fine to me, I'm probably forcing this a bit when I say that on either side of the bow tie badge I see two letters, S - O then the bow tie U - L. I'll chalk that interpretation up to an acid flashback.

    It's not nearly as ugly as Toyotas or Lexii. My solution is to plastidip the entire car deep midnight purple, including that ugly mouth. I want one, please make it, AWD for $40K

    I really want one, make it cost less than 50k well equipped and I would buy one. 40k would be better. I really like it.

    I want one too. The real question is whether GM can beat the Jaguar iPACE to the showroom floor, and is there anyone else out there with their own surprise in the works.
