What should Barra be called

I am sure everyone knows there is some doubt about what the next Falcon model should be called. The concern is the AV might be linked to the word Average.

Have a vote and lets see what people think!

I know what you mean, it will be interesting if they go with AV as to who will be the first to put up a headline like AVerage.

Personally I like AVenger so it can make up for the all the mistakes that surrounded AU.

uh oh.

I can just see the Journo's (term used very lightly) from autospeed and other crap type mags, reading the above here and already punching in the headline "AVerage" in preparation for yet another review on a car they haven't tested. :crazy1:

As it's still basically a AU base, and as long as the stylings good, then the mags that count, ala Motor and Wheels, should be fairly kind.
