Flint Ironstag: This is what GM has done for decades. This is also what British Leyland (owner of Jaguar and Land Rover for years) failed to do. At one point in the seventies BL had cars in the mid sized saloon market including the Morris Marina, Austin Allegro, Austin Maxi and Triumph Dolemite, and they all had unique platforms and engines. Ditto the larger saloons by Austin, Rover and Triumph.Triumph spent lots of money building their own 3.0 V8 for the Stag even though Rover had a fantastic 3.5 V8 already, and the Triumph engines unreliability doomed the Stag...
Cinaed: GM and Ford have done it for ages, and done it passably.... Though I will say it's unnerving to see a Cadillac that looks like a Chevy Camaro.And for fark's sake, at least try to make some of those mid-range lines look a least a 'little' different from the lower-priced lines. I still, cannot, for any reason see the purpose in buying a Mercury over a Ford, or a Buick over a Chevy.
