Just the other day, we reported that GMC executives have been longing for a subcompact crossover to round out its lineup of vehicles. Despite the booming sales in the segment, nothing is on the immediate horizon.
But, we have caught wind that GMC is planning an all-new vehicle to debut at the 2016 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), or, more colloquially, the 2016 Detroit Auto Show.
We don’t have many specifics at this point, but were only treated with knowing it is not a subcompact CUV. Throughout the past few years, we know dealers have clamored for the return of a true, off-road type vehicle to pick up where Hummer left off. Jeep has cornered this market in recent years with the Wrangler, so there’s always the much-rumored possibility of GMC entering the space, or producing a luxurious rival to the Grand Cherokee.
Let’s remember, too, that General Motors recently trademarked the “Blazer” name, which could give a subtle clue as to a possible GMC cousin. We doubt it would be called the “Jimmy” (which may possibly be one of the worst vehicle names in modern times), but we digress.
Talk to us below, what are you hoping to see from GMC in Detroit in a few short weeks?
