Chronology
Predecessor
Successor GM Delta platform
This article is about the front-wheel drive T platform. For the rear-wheel drive T platform, see GM T platform (RWD).

General Motors reused the T-body designation beginning in 1979 with the front-wheel drive Opel Kadett D and the Vauxhall Astra Mk I. This version of the T-body also became widespread throughout the world, including South Africa, where the rear-wheel drive version was not originally available.[1]

Other names for the FWD T platform are the GM2700 and the GM3000, applied to Opel Astra G and Zafira A and their rebadges.

The platform was superseded by GM Delta platform and proceeded by the GM T platform (RWD).
