They're called a Ute over in Australia, rather have the sedan

Please GM dont bring that car over here. It will not sell and will only attract dreamers that cant afford it remember the SSR.

Holden has been selling these for many years in Australia, it is a very popular model.
The Chevrolet version is already selling like hotcakes in Mexico, and it has about half the power of the proposed Pontiac model.
The market is a totally different animal compared to when El Caminos were still being built in America. Back then nobody said "4 door" and "cool car" in the same sentence.
