2008 Chevrolet Omega: Brazil’s Turn For The Holden Commodore

General Motors announced today the introduction of the Holden Commodore based, Chevrolet Omega in the Brazilian market. Evidently, the word “based” is an understatement because the only visible difference between the Chevy and its down-under stable mate is restricted to the bowtie in the grille. While American consumers will have to wait until early 2008 to get a taste of the RWD Australian sedan via the Pontiac G8, the Chevrolet Omega will go on sale in Brazil this August where it will be available with GM’s 250Hp 3.6-liter V6 unit.

For those unfamiliar with the Brazilian market, the current Chevrolet Omega is a rebadged version of the previous Holden Commodore. GM decided to import the Omega from Australia in 1999 after the original Chevrolet Omega based on the Opel Omega A and built locally between 1992 and 1998, ceased production. -More pictures after the jump
