As summer sets on the northern hemisphere, it can only mean one thing: auto show season is nearly upon us.
The season will kick off formally with the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show this November, and the latest news in LA pegs Chevrolet to reveal two new vehicles.
In a media briefing sent out by the LA Auto Show, Chevrolet was explicitly mentioned to have two world debuts present. The briefing also stated other General Motors brand will cover “multiple North American and global debuts.”
So, specifically in regards to Chevrolet, what could the two vehicles be? Our best, most educated guess tells us a production Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 will appear. It will be two years since the 2014 Colorado ZR2 concept vehicle debuted, causing a splash among truck enthusiasts. Based on spy photos seen through this year, there’s strong evidence that a production variant is coming, and LA seems like a good place to reveal it.
Moving right along, there are also two Chevrolet crossovers that may be contenders. The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox has been spied countless times this past year in development, meaning it’s likely inching close to a debut date. The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse is also on deck for replacement, too, as it has also been spied. As a CUV wildcard, we could possibly see Chevrolet’s all-new midsize crossover, which is said to slot between a smaller 2018 Equinox and larger 2018 Traverse, and likely sharing bones with the all-new 2017 GMC Acadia.
On the passenger car side of things, we may also see a Chevrolet Cruze diesel. Despite the turmoil among diesel powertrains and a certain German automaker, Chevrolet and GM have stated it was moving full speed ahead with a next-generation Cruze diesel. We’ve even spotted one ourselves, with a familiar diesel clack under its camouflaged hood purring rather quietly down Detroit roads.
