We went from what appeared to be a development test mule just a few weeks ago to what now appears to be an actual prototype of Chevrolet’s all-new MPV. General Motors will be introducing an all-new ‘people mover’ for the 2010 model year. The Delta-based MPV will be built at GM’s Hamtramck, Michigan, plant – along side such future vehicles as the Chevrolet Volt and next-generation Malibu.
Codenamed MPV-7, this new ‘people mover’ will be closely related to the next Opel Zafira – although it will get its own unique look. The front-wheel-drive MPV will offer seating for either five or seven passengers – depending on the options and packages that the customer chooses.
We’ll be seeing much more of the new MPV as it gets closer to production.
Chevrolet announced that its all-new entry in the compact segment will be called Cruze and it will make its global debut at the Paris Motor Show in October.
Cruze was developed by a global design and engineering team and will be built in multiple locations around the world. The Cruze approaches an overall length of 4.6 m and offers ample interior space and cargo capacity for five passengers, giving it an advantage over competition in the compact segment, said a statement.
The Cruze features Chevrolet’s new global design. “Combined with high safety standards and excellent build quality, Chevrolet will again deliver on its promise of offering a very attractive package at an exceptional value,” the company said.
The new Chevrolet Cruze will be available in European markets in spring 2009, followed by other global regions
It’s official: Chevrolet Camaro – shown here as a preproduction vehicle – is returning to the streets. Classically taut, athletic and poised. The legendary long hood, short rear deck, and wide stance. It’s shaped to evoke the classic sixties-era Camaro. Best of all you will be able to get this four-passenger, rear-wheel drive performance coupe in 2009!
Chevrolet has released a teaser shot of the upcoming 2008 Malibu wearing what is said to be the new corporate face, with a split grille resembling a scaled-down version of the current generation of full-size SUVs.
