Nostalgic Americans have hoped and wished for this moment. The El Camino is a beloved Chevy vehicle that was discontinued in the 80’s. It has all the style of a 2-door coupe but more of the utility of a pickup truck. While most had chalked the El Camino up as part of Chevy history, a recent GM Authority article has some people wondering if a new El Camino could be in the works.
According to GM Authority, General Motors renewed its trademark for the El Camino in August and MotorAuthority says GM is open to the possibility of reviving this model. The car-based pickup models tapered off after the 80’s but the public car interest goes in cycles. These models were referred to as UTE models and more could hit the market sooner than you think. GM also renewed the Nomad nameplate and either one could come after the Chevy SS Sedan which is scheduled to be released in 2014.
Although the El Camino went into retirement, a comeback is a possibility. As the old saying goes, “As much as the automotive industry changes, the more it stays the same.”
