Could be launched in late 2013

Former Opel CEO Karl-Friedrich Stracke revealed the company is working on a flagship model, but new details are starting to emerge about it.

According to AutoNews.de, Opel is developing a luxurious sedan which could revive the Omega moniker. It would reportedly be based on the Cadillac XTS and could be launched in late 2013.

Power would likely be provided by a 3.6-liter V6 engine that produces 304 hp (227 kW / 308 PS) and 358 Nm (264 lb-ft) of torque. However, the magazine speculates there could also be a turbocharged 2.8-liter V6 with 325 PS (239 kW / 321 hp) or a twin-turbo 2.0-liter diesel with 195 PS (143 kW / 192 hp). Regardless of which engines are offered, all-wheel drive will likely be optional.

Thanks to Fabian for the tip!

If Opel makes a new flagship which is as good as what the previous Omega was then I might be interested. The XTS is a good choice. Despite being FWD it is a superb car.

WRONG. It will be based off of the "Ciel" and not the XTS. Do your research. Why would they use a lower class vehicle as a bases to the flagship when they have a concept flagship already built and out there. Think about it.

Hmmm... wouldn't it be more logical to base the Opel Omega on the Buick LaCrosse (which is similar to the XTS under the skin?)
