Should Chevrolet come back with the Caprice?

I personally think Chevrolet should revive the Caprice and the car should be full size and must come with rear wheel drive

Absolutely they should, that company desperately needs to start making fullsize cars again. I can't believe they ever stopped making them and that's probably part of the reason why they are in the shape they are in today.

I see 1980s model fullsize Oldsmobile, Pontiac, Buick, Caprice, Impalas daily around here and I can't believe they just stopped making fullsized cars completely they clearly had good sales from these cars.

Not realistic really with the milage and the markets. That kind of thinking is what got them into the problem they now are in;IMO.Its the same old thinking.

I think the full size cars are solidly built and they offer a good power to weight ratio on those cars and they get respectable gas mileage, I still see plenty of the 1980s Ford's, Merucry's, Chevy's and Oldsmobile's around in my area and the owners really seem to like their cars.

I think they should and should be FULL-SIZE luxury cars again, with V8, RWD and cushy suspensions.

OR at least gussy up the current Impala with chrome, soften the suspension and stretch that wheelbase!
