GM G2XX Vehicle Platform
G2XX is the name of an upcoming global General Motors vehicle architecture designed to underpin small and subcompact vehicles. The platform was engineered to be lightweight, highly modular, and to provide proficient driving dynamics.
G2XX replaces GM’s global Gamma 2 architecture. It is expected to first be introduced with the the second-generation 2016 Chevrolet Spark and 2015 Opel Karl/Vauxhall Viva.
The G2XX platform has several notable elements, including:
- Body-frame integral construction
- Front, transversely-mounted engine placement
- Front-wheel drive with no support for all-wheel drive
- Independent front suspension system and torsion-beam rear suspension system
- Support for inline three- and four-cylinder engines
- Possible support for pure electric vehicles (EV)
|Type:||Unibody welded steel body|
|Supported vehicle type:||Car|
|Predecessor:||Gamma/Gamma 2/GM Global Smaller Cars Platform|
G2XX is designed to support three- and smaller four-cylinder gasoline and diesel GM engines.
