    I feel like it'll be a 3.5-3.7L twin turbocharged v6 engine or naturally aspirated engine. it's supposed to be very boring. it may be something like a pentastar or a similar engine.

    Definitely a V6 in the later D,H and Roamer vehicles would make sense. if they do create a new Gavril V6 it would be useful for either a minivan ( Astro sized) or a compact pickup truck (Ranger,S10 etc) both would make sense as they share components.

    I think if they were to make an astro-van, it'd likely just be a larger version built off the H-series.
    alternatively, as I once suggested before, a modern full-size muscle car?
    I'd imagine if this is the case they'd go for a coupe rather than a sedan, as a sedan would eat into the GM's territory on the earlier, more primitive side, and into the etk 800's if it was more modern and complex.
    if they were to add newer DOHC variants of the gavril V8s, they could feasibly be used in the van facelift, and this new car, maybe even the very last of the grand marshals.

    The Astro is smaller than the H-series not larger.
    Astro on the left and Express (similar real vehicle to H-series) on right


    Astro


    Chevy Express ( H-series equivalent)

    --- Post updated ---
    I guess a Gavril minivan could be like the Astro in the sense of using a downsized H-series body with a different front end and interior, or it could have its own purpose built body that just looks similar to the H-series, but smaller (but is technically not the same; this is the case on the real life Astro).

    The Astro was based off of the Chevrolet S10 if my memory serves me correctly and was powered by four and six cylinder engines.

    A very very long time ago I remember a blogpost that discussed both Vulcan and the possibility of PBR , but we heard nothing since then. So unless there has been something new which I'm unaware of (which is pretty likely considering I don't follow that closely on the game anymore due to being very busy in real life) I see absolutely no reason to believe either Vulcan or PBR are coming, mainly because of the amount of work it would take to implement them. (Vulcan would be really awesome though!)
    As for the career mode... well, it's actually pretty reasonable to assume that it's coming sometime in the future, with buying and selling cars.

    It was based on the f and x body due to its bolt on subframe and shares front suspension parts from b body wagons.

    I think that has been there for years, the K series has v10 and v12 badges, which are cool, but I don't think they would be added to either ETK because they're supposed to have 50/50 weight distribution, a V12 or V10 would probably be too heavy. V8? Possible.

    i'm not sure if this has been mentioned before but oh well, while in info files recently I noticed the cars now have a "population" setting. Could this be some kind of future dynamic market system as supply of cars will get limited? or have I misinterpreted it?

    I believe the population setting sets how often do specific configs appear in traffic.

    That's an extremely old setting that only affects how they spawn in traffic

    I know this isn't really speculation or anything but I love that modern fascia, it's so BeamNG

    Looking at that "predecessor" facia gave me serious GMC Vandura vibes, and made me wonder if we do get a passenger version would a conversion van option(for those that don't know conversion vans had its rear bench be able to fold down into a bed much like a pseudo-RV minus a lot of the RV stuff), we had a 1994 GMC Vandura 1500, good van, spare tire, ladder, drank gas like a fish though and it didn't like stopping quickly. But this may only be a pipe dream like a lot of subjects on this forum.

    those look really good! the 2002 - 2017 could fit into this whole timeline really well

    but to be real, we will probably get only about 1 - 3 facelifts at best

    but I feel another facelift could fill the 1990' ish hole in the timeline

    something along the lines of this:
    (yes the drawing sucks and just exists as a quick sketch to give you a rough idea
