Gm did this with the Toyota corolla and chev Nova on the late 80's.
The resale of the Nova was always less than the Toyota , go figure.
They were made on exactly the same manufacturing line in California I think.
They tried to sell the Corolla based Nova on south america ....but No va means no go in Spanish.
(It really applied to the original Nova...)
Badge engineering as it is called is very common and been going on for a long time.
The advantage is we are now able to buy a chevy made by Nissan.
Finally a chevy I want to buy. ( replaced my 2nd Astro with the city express)
