Autoblog reports: Rumor Mill: Next gen Pontiac G6 will be RWD. There's also talk the next Impala will also be RWD. Uh, that's rear-wheel drive for you non car nerds. With the development of technologies that can offset the deficiencies of RWD (it's often lighter in the back of a car so the car wants to slip and slide around under some condition), it makes sense to move the drive wheels back to where "God intended them to be." Actually, we're not in that camp of cars must be RWD.
Sporting drivers (the smackheads who think they are good drivers) insist that cars be RWD because it offers better whatever and whatever. We have friends who think that's total hogwash, so we haven't found someone to convince us that one is better over the other for the general folk.
We pray this means the end of the Monte Carlo. Kill it, kill it, kill it!
