There’s just one day remaining until the opening of the 2012 Chicago Auto Show, where General Motors is expected to showcase a new product or two from GMC.
The Highly Anticipated 2013 GMC Acadia
If the latest spy photos are any indication, we can be on the lookout for a refreshed GMC Acadia. Rather than being a full-fledged redesign, we expect the refresh to feature a series of exterior styling changes culminating in a new grille and front fascia that will have a “more boxy look”, from what we’ve been told. Additionally, we hear that the interior will get new, softer materials and a couple of design changes, along with GM’s industry-first center airbag. Overall, the update may be just what the doctor ordered to turn slumping Acadia sales back around.
The refreshed Buick Enclave and Chevy Traverse won’t be shown at Chicago, but we expect them to show up at New York in April and possibly L.A. later this year.
Another Chevy Concept?
Last month, GM Authority reported that the 130R and 140S were the first in a series of concept cars targeted at the Millenial market to come out of GM in 2012. While Chevy isn’t on the schedule of auto show conferences, yours truly remains hopeful for a surprise from the Bow tie brand… even though my hopes will most likely be squashed.
Overall, Chicago promises to have ten world debuts from the entire auto industry — the first of which will begin on Wednesday, February 8th.
