Subject: Re: What does "built on the same platform" mean?


To be built on the same platform means that some design components of a proven vehicle line will be used as the starting point of another newer vehicle. The reason for doing so would be a cost. It is less expensive(for GM) to build a new car from the frame or drive train up rather than designing a totally new one from scratch.
