Why does "always the bridesmaid and never the bride", spring to mind?

Correct me if I'm wrong but the Raptor concept isn't due for production until 2005? The Holden version will be out next year.

Just once, and only once would I like to see Ford bring out something before Holden. :crazy1:

I've said it before but I can see Joe Public wanting a AWD Commodore as the family wagon as the Commodore is already recognised and proven car. Minimum risk.

Btw, can someone tell me how an AWD Raptor is going to differ, and be more appealing than, a AWD based Commodore, apart from looks?

On the performance front, can anyone say "AWD 350kw 6.2lt GTS-R". I'm betting we will see this next year. Any takers as to when we will see a 'AWD 300kw 5.4lt GTHO". I would hazard a guess at never. *sigh*

If it sounds like sour grapes then you'd be right. To many years of disappointments, always supporting second place.

Sorry but for mine that's just a GM version of a 2 year old Ford concept in R5.

Styling cues would have to be VY for sure you'd think.. Doesn't look too bad IMO.

I know what ya mean... it seems ford get the ideas, then holden make them happen first.

Maybe ford should just all out stop telling the public about anything. like the R7 for instance...who was ready for that??

VY front looks better than what was in the spy shots. I only noticed the 4 doors after I posted!

I'm guessing it was shot in long grass to make it lower (looks like a fire hazard to me) :s6: I wonder what the bulge on the corner of the hood is for?

The RAPTOR will be similar to a BMW X5, the CROSS8 looks to be similar to an Audi Allroads or Volvo V70 Cross Country

I was under the impression that the Raptor would be the crossover vehicle (R5) and then there would also be an aussie built 4x4 (R7)

maybe i'm wrong, i dont know.

but yeah...who cares about an AWD commo..its an old idea, first created by ford. :) at least we get to claim something as a first.

Which will mean nothing if the AWD Commodore is released as a production vehicle 2 years before the Ford AWD version. :sad:

yeah I know. Lets hope that ford will push the date for the release of the x-over to be much sooner than before.
