The Canadian-spec Chevrolet Orlando MPV will launch in October 2011 and will start at $19,995 for the LS model. For that amount of Canadian coin, customers will get a compact vehicle that
crams in seats up to seven occupants powered by a 174-horsepower 2.4-liter ECOTEC engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission. Impressively, the powertrain is rated at 10.1L/100 km (23 MPG) in the city and 6.7L/100 km (35 MPG) on the highway.
On top of that, there’s up to 1,594 litres (56 cubic feet) of total cargo space at the owner’s disposal. The Delta II-based Orlando also receives a pair McPherson struts for the front suspension and a compound crank axle to support the rear wheels.
Opt for the $22,295 LT trim, and a six-speed automatic transmission becomes an option. The auto becomes standard on the $29,735 LTZ model.
