Chevrolet Orlando Concept preview

Chevrolet has released two preview design sketches of the Orlando Concept, a seven-seat multi-purpose vehicle with a SUV-like muscular design which will debut at the 2008 Paris Motor Show.

Chevrolet Orlando Concept - Interior designAccording to Chevrolet, the Orlando gives a "clear indication" about the expansion to its portfolio which is currently under consideration.

The seven-seater is based on the all-new Cruze compact sedan, and "carries Chevrolet’s signature design language into a new vehicle segment."

It combines the versatility attributes of a sport utility – such as impressive interior space – with those of a family van – such as adaptable seating – and a wagon.

The powertrain includes a 2.0-liter turbo diesel, developing 150 hp and 320 Nm of torque.


Chevrolet Orlando Concept - design sketch detailChevrolet Orlando cuts a distinctive silhouette, replacing conventional monocab proportions with a more defined contrast between the hood and windshield lines.

With flared fenders instead of a flat side-body, Orlando has a muscular stance that gives it the appearance of a sport utility vehicle, yet it offers dynamic ride and handling, excellent fuel efficiency and easy entry thanks to its car-based architecture.

Inside, the five-door Orlando is designed to meet the needs of families, with adaptable, theater-style seating in three rows that accommodate up to seven occupants.

The spacious cabin can be quickly transformed into a large cargo area. A generous 2,760 mm wheelbase and wide front and rear tracks provide outstanding interior roominess.
