General Motors has displayed its new Pontiac Vibe and Chevy Borrego at the 2001 Los Angeles
Auto Show. The Vibe is a sporty SUV that will replace the Toyota Corolla-based Prizm next
year. It seats up to five passengers and has a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine. GM also
unveiled a new concept vehicle, the Chevy Borrego, which is based on a Subaru four-wheel
-drive platform. To convert the Borrego from a two-seater to a four-seater, the rear window
retracts, the midgate slides back and a “full roof,” which normally resides under the
pickup truck load floor, is snapped into place. Borrego is powered by a Subaru-built
horizontally-opposed flat-four engine.
