Rumors of a Chevrolet Cavalier Rebirth Emerge
The Chevrolet Cavalier could be the latest in a line of classic Chevy nameplates to be reintroduced to the automaker's current lineup
Chevrolet has been reviving model names left and right recently, with nameplates like the Blazer and Trailblazer making triumphant returns. Word on the street is another classic Chevrolet moniker could be making a return: the Chevrolet Cavalier.

Back in late March, Chevrolet officially filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for the rights to the Cavalier name in relation to “motor land vehicles, namely automobiles, sport utility vehicles, trucks, vans, engines therefor and structural parts thereof.
The Cavalier title was last utilized by Chevrolet in the U.S. back in 2005. At that time, Chevrolet’s compact sedan bore the name.
A third generation model, the old Cavalier was available as a four-door sedan, two-door coupe, or two-door convertible. Still, seeing as how none of those vehicle segments are garnering as much customer attention as they used to, the Cavalier name will most likely be used for a crossover of SUV.
On the other hand, Chevrolet did recently discontinue the Cruze, its signature compact sedan. If it needed a replacement, the Cavalier would fill in the void quite nicely.

Chevy has already reintroduced the Cavalier to different markets across the globe. A new version of the Cavalier recently replaced the Chevrolet Sonic in Mexico, and that same model is also available in China.
General Motors reportedly told The Drive that the trademarked was filed to simply protect the company’s right to the nameplate, with no plans in place to introduce a Cavalier vehicle to the U.S. market. Still, if a vehicle bearing the Cavalier name is revealed within the near future, it certainly wouldn’t come as a surprise.
