Unbeknownst to many Americans, General Motors (NYSE:GM) is the proprietor of several brands other than Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac that sell cars, trucks, and SUVs to the masses across the globe. Brands like Australia’s Holden and Europe’s Vauxhall and Opel all distribute GM-made vehicles to drivers all around the world, and most of its models are completely foreign in name and concept to American car buffs. With these brands and several others, GM has been able to explore different designs and test marketing ideas, all while preserving its American brands and model lineups back home.

There are a variety of reasons the models listed on this list have not made it to American audiences, ranging from differing international safety or efficiency standards to simple customer demand. While you may have seen a model or two driving around in America, it was almost certainly sold in a foreign market.

Here are five of GM’s most noteworthy releases in foreign markets that many Americans can only hope to see make it to dealer’s lots in the United States.
