The General Motors J platform, or J-body, is an automobile platform that was used by General Motors from 1981 to 2005. Marking the transition to front-wheel drive in the compact-car segment in North America, the J platform was the successor to the H platform, making it the third generation of compact cars designed by the company. Outside North America, the J platform was adopted by GM-controlled subsidiaries making the same transition to front-wheel drive, though as a mid-size car.

dbo:abstract
  • Die intern bei General Motors als J-Car oder J-Body bezeichnete Automobilplattform wurde für Fahrzeuge mit selbsttragender Karosserie, quer eingebautem Frontmotor und Vorderradantrieb konzipiert. Diese Plattform wurde ab 1977 entwickelt und ersetzte die GM H-Plattform. Das in Europa bekannteste auf ihr aufgebaute Fahrzeug ist der Opel Ascona C / Vauxhall Cavalier Mk. II. Charakteristisch war bei den Viertürern der J-Cars meistens die Wölbung der hinteren Seitenscheiben. (de)
  • The General Motors J platform, or J-body, is an automobile platform that was used by General Motors from 1981 to 2005. Marking the transition to front-wheel drive in the compact-car segment in North America, the J platform was the successor to the H platform, making it the third generation of compact cars designed by the company. Outside North America, the J platform was adopted by GM-controlled subsidiaries making the same transition to front-wheel drive, though as a mid-size car. By 1990, General Motors began to reduce its usage of the J platform, reducing its usage of badge engineering. As the company prepared the launch of the Saturn S-Series for 1990, Buick and Oldsmobile ended their use of the J platform. Outside of North America, the J platform was phased out in favor of the GM2900 platform (cars based upon the Opel Vectra). With its highest sales under the Chevrolet and Pontiac brands, the J platform remained in production into the 2000s, following several redesigns. Replaced by the GM Delta platform, General Motors ended production of the J-platform in June 2005, with a Pontiac Sunfire as the final example. (en)
