GM E Platform
The General Motors
General Motors
E platform or E-body was the automobile platform designation used for a number of personal luxury cars produced from 1963 to 2002. Notably, early E-bodies were produced in both front wheel drive and rear wheel drive configurations, and were the first front wheel drive automobiles produced in the United States since 1937. E-bodies were re-engineered to a smaller size in 1979, closely related to the GM K platform (FWD). Later, the cars were made smaller still with the 1986 redesign, along with the K-body. Most 1986–1993 E-bodies were produced at GM's high-tech Detroit/Hamtramck Assembly plant, with the Buick Reatta

personal luxury coupe was redesigned significantly through four generations from 1966 through 1992, but retained the same letter designation throughout that time. During that span the vehicle grew from its original 211" as large as 220" then shrank to 188", and shifted from traditional body-on-frame construction to unibody, with the platform changing but not its designation. In some cases an entirely new platform was developed but given the name of an existing one for marketing reasons, with the original being assigned a new designation

GM D Platform
The GM D platform
GM D platform
(informally, D-body), was a General Motors automobile platform designation, used in two series (1936-1984 and 1985-1996) for large body-on-frame rear-wheel drive automobiles. For the majority of its existence the D-Body represented the largest Cadillac, either the Fleetwood Series 75 or the Fleetwood Limousine. In 1985 GM downsized and redesignated its traditional large car rear wheel drive GM C platform as the new much smaller and lighter front wheel drive GM C platform. It also shifted its traditional, D platform Fleetwood limousine to the new C platform, ending production of the historic D platform. In turn, it redesignated the former RWD C platform the new D platform, and maintained production of a few RWD holdovers on it. The original D platform was closely related to GM's original rear-wheel drive large car GM B and C platforms
