 Opel Monza concept coming to Frankfurt Motor Show - report

Based on the Cadillac ATS

A new report indicates Opel is about to revive the Monza moniker with a concept for this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

It will be based on a shortened Cadillac ATS platform and is said to adopt a rear-wheel drive layout. Engine lineup will allegedly include a variety of four- and six-cylinder engines with displacements between 2.0 and 3.6 liters. The range-topping six-cylinder 3.6-liter mill is rumored to output about 325 bhp (242 kW). These engines will be linked to either a six-speed manual gearbox or a six-speed automatic transmission.

At the beginning of the year we posted a photo of a coupe concept sporting an aggressive front fascia with an Adam-like grille. We believe this will be the Monza concept that Opel will show in September. Time will tell.

2.8 was introduced 10 years ago and hasn't been evoluted since then...except adding more and more turbo presure. They must either drop it or update it with direct injection and dual vvt. The best is to use 'ready to go' 3.6T. BTW I checked Deutsche configurator and saw Insignia OPC is not offered any more!?!?!?

Also why would they adopt a 325bhp 3.6L when the 2.8L has the same output? It is Europe they're planning on selling it on right?

2.8 is old and extremely thirsty. Plus 3.6 is already sitting in that chasis, why bother with changing?

Because of taxes. Its the same reason all manufacturers are downsizing NA engines for Turbocharged units. I can guarantee that the 3.6 would be thirstier than the 2.8 turbo. Why else would the likes of Ford have replaced their 1.6 NA with a 1.0L Turbo, or why has the 2.0L and 1.8L petrol engines in the insignia been replaced by 1.4 turbos?

@madness: Read it - he asked why they put 3.6 insted 2.8, not the other way around. That's first thing. Second is that turbo engines are frugal only when you're driving like an old granny, when you push them they drink the same, or even more. Finally, third thing is that 2.8, as I stated above is just an old engine. Compared to it's rivals it drinks a lot.
