I would like to know why Chevrolet is changing the name of the Cavalier to Cobalt. Cavalier soulds so much better. I mean, at least the Ford Windstar changed their name to something good, Freestar. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazyeyes.gif

My guess is that the Cavalier sales were dropping due to the public's general view of it being a lower quality car than other comparable models. the new name gives them a fresh start in the market and may generate interest in the latest version. Name changes usually come when sales drop significantly and do not improve.

Oh, that makes sense. But I really don't like the name Cobalt. I wish they would have picked something else.
