    You know even if they don’t do one vanilla someone with enough skill* can make it as a mod.

    Yeah I know these mods are outdated but it should give you a pretty good idea of possible bodystyles

    No, it doesn't have a different front fascia according to the one image we have.

    This place has gotten stupider over the years. About the legran wagon getting a facelift, it’s very possible it could since that image is probably from early development of the car. It could be pretty different from the imgur picture.

    This looks awfully high up for a LeGran, no? If it's some sort of Eagle-style car, would that mean it's on some sort of modified D-series frame?

    I realize that it's probably just a lifted stock suspension system, but I think that it might be worth considering. I can't think of an example of transverse 4WD. It would be a lot of extra work to implement, but I feel that it is theoretically, but not realistically, possible that that is what we're looking at.

    Before the pack of hyenas consumes this as canon, this is just me floating around an idea and not any sort of actual proof.

    the legran already has a set of lifted springs for the existing suspension, so no, it'll likely be an 80's subaru-esque setup, with the drivetrain it has now, with a 4wd transfercase and a live axle in place of the rear beam axle.

    in regard to the gavril frame idea, why would car that already has unibody structure be put on a ladder chassis from the factory?
    and why would bruckell use mechanical parts from gavril, a completely different company?

    Putting stuff on the Gavril frame is easy and fun, but it definitely shouldn't be a factory thing, especially not for something from an entirely different company and also unibody. It would be funny to see that as a custom garage built config though, as long as the wheelbase fits and there's no clipping which I doubt.

    As for D-series I dont know. But this is the Aussie XY ute. Unibody RWD

    But a small number had Jeep running Gear shoved into them. While still ( to my knowledge ) using the normal I6.


    ( v8s where RWD only )

    ( off topic ( sorry )

    They also Came in Sedan/van/Wagon/ute

    even in the case of 4x4 XWs, they retained the standard ford engine and transmission, but gained an (iirc land rover sourced?) transfer case on the back of it and a front axle, along with generally beefier subframes, though it retained the unibody structure.


    the legran wagon does bring up another general point; as the covet's body was also renamed to "hatchback unibody" in the last update, suggesting an alternate bodystyle is also planned for it.
    a few possibilities that stick out to me, are a high-roof wagon, like the civic shuttle, though as vehicles like this often came with 4wd, this seems oddly too similar to the legran wagon, so I don't think it's likely.

    another obvious option, which has been tried countless times with mods, would be a shorter, lighter fastback coupe sort of body.
    this would certainly fit well with the current lightweight parts which were recently added, and is a niche that isn't really fillable with any other vanilla car.

    one which i don't think is too likely, considering the similarity to the pessima, would be a sedan bodystyle. this requires probably the most restyling work, and sits in an already oversaturated niche.

    to go even further afield, perhaps a flimsy convertible is planned?
    the audio raytracing system appears to be still a long way off, and they aren't planning on a shortcut system for the audio, so that would currently be a limitation with a convertible.
    however, multiple mods have shown that with enough refinement, soft-top cabrios can be done with acceptable levels of realism (unlike the untested area of hardtops, like that theorised for the K series), so there's likely very little limitation in the N/B area now.

    The ETK 800 body was called Wagon Unibody for ages, the part names start with Wagon, all the configs have manually defined Wagon body style in info files, and yet there is no other body style and never has been. So I wouldn't just assume that a single part name change means a new body style. I think it was just renamed for consistency and eventually all unibodies will be renamed.

    If this was the case them why are there bits for it already in game and why hasn't a dev said otherwise like they always do for personal mods?
