When we broke news that General Motors renewed its trademark for the “Nomad” name, we continued to dig around the United States Patent and Trademark Office and discovered that the “El Camino” trademark application was filed August 9, 2012. For a few years now the rumor that the Chevrolet El Camino will come back as an American variant of Australia’s Holden Commodore Ute/HSV Maloo and pick up where the stillborn Pontiac G8 ST left off.
If we were to connect the dots, both the Chevrolet Nomad sport wagon and El Camino ute would be derivatives of the upcoming Chevrolet SS sport sedan, which is a spin-off from the Holden Commodore sedan. For GM performance enthusiasts, each model is something to get very excited about. But which Chevy would you like to have most? The Chevrolet SS? Chevrolet Nomad? Or Chevrolet El Camino?
