It is currently one of the weapons with which General Motors will support its strategy to strengthen the Chinese market, but the new Chevrolet Seeker crossover (presented at an international event in Shanghai) may also be launched soon in the United States, with a special intention to meet that segment of customers – still very large – which continues to prefer cars with internal combustion engines.
In fact, the Chevrolet Explorer does not accept anything for the electric transition, neither in the Chinese version nor in the one close to the United States. Intended to be assembled in China for the domestic market by Saic-GM, it will actually be offered in China with a 180 HP 1.5-liter 4-cylinder turbo Ecotec engine, connected to a CVT transmission, while in North America it may receive it. larger displacements, such as the 2.0 already used by GM for the Blazer SUV, which the Seeker also draws inspiration from in its design.
“When we designed the Finder, we aimed to make it expressive and unique, efficient and fun to drive,” said Stuart Norris, vice president of design for GM China and GM International. through the outside and inside it, young and strong. “.
The Seeker is built on the GM VSS-F platform and features a body that combines sharp and sleek lines in a modern but not overly original style.
The roof slopes slightly towards the rear where it ends at the spoiler, and the grille stands out at the front which creates – together with the narrow pillars of light and the low spoiler – a very recognizable X.
The new Chevrolet crossover will be offered in China with two different trim levels, both called the RS, one of which has a sportier look, and most things are finished in Piano Black and 18-inch racing wheels.
Inside, a dual-screen layout is seen with a pair of displays (infotainment system and instrument cluster) measuring 10.25 inches each. The tuner supports over-the-air updates, runs the new Xiaoxue OS, and features wireless Apple CarPlay.
