New Chevrolet Orlando Grows Into A Crossover With Up To 7 Seats In China

After seven years in production, during which it was sold pretty much everywhere on the globe, the Chevrolet Orlando is finally being replaced by a new model.

The new model moves away from the minivan shape of its predecessor and is more of a crossover than ever. In fact, the Chinese media reports that, unlike the current MPV, the all-new Orlando will be offered in a five- and seven-seat configuration.

Design wise, it adopts a front end similar to that of other modern Chevys, with a large air intake right under the single-bar grille and two vertical creases on each side of the front bumper, a clean layout for the tailgate and what appear to be LED taillights. Also, higher end models will benefit from a blacked out look and panoramic sunroof, among others.

Spanning 4,684mm (184.4in) in length, 1,807mm (71.1in) in width and 1,628mm (64.1in) in height, the new Orlando is 32mm (1.3in) longer, 29mm (1.1in) narrower and 5mm (0.2in) lower than its predecessor. The wheelbase has grown in size, from 2,760mm (108.7in) to 2,796mm (110.1in).

The 530T badge on the tailgate doesn’t reveal anything about the engine, but it could be powered by a turbocharged 1.3-liter engine, making 156hp, mated to either a manual or an automatic six speeder. Also, top speed seems to be limited at 190km/h (118mph) regardless of how many occupants it can sit.

Chevrolet will probably premiere the new Orlando this fall, prior launching it locally before the end of the year. Since China is the single largest market, it makes sense to be manufactured there by the Shanghai-GM joint venture, and it remains to be seen if it will be exported to other countries besides the People’s Republic.

    If this is what the FNR-X Concept previewed (front end is VERY reminiscent of it), I’m going to sob myself to sleep tonight.

    The 5-seat version of this is what the Blazer should have been. MUCH better-looking. It has the silly floating roof, but it’s minimal.

    Such an improvement from the current whale!

  • DERIVATIVE. THEY’VE GOT THE NISSAN C-PILLAR KICK-UP/FLOATING ROOF IN THE BACK AND IN THE FRONT THEY HAVE MANY HONDA CUES. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/69a10ea842f3645abaada49c4735bb4689ea3181567fdc7a624eef7eacff760c.jpg

    I really liked the old Orlando, and this is even better! Pity we won’t see it in Europe.
