It was a lot more than a "name change" on a building.

New management, new engineers. Old factories closed, new ones built. GM changed a lot of stuff at GM-Korea.

Daewoo Motors ceased to be an entity in 2002 when it was purchased by GM. By 2005 GM had completed the takeover & the Daewoo name existed only as a badge on South Korean Chevs.

Not a lot of parts or design shared between the J200 & the J300.
