General Motors, through its SAIC-GM-Wuling joint venture, has just released official sketches of the upcoming Wuling Victory – the first model to use the new Wuling Global Silver logo that will expand the brand’s international reach. As we reported last week, this all-new midsize MPV was announced on May 25th and will officially debut next month at the 2020 Chengdu Motor Show.
Although they do not accurately represent all the details of the production Wuling Victory, these sketches presented by the company allow us to appreciate the main design lines and the general features of the vehicle’s body. The images show that the Victory will boast modern styling, with well-defined lines that give it a unique and radically different character compared to all the models that Wuling has sold so far.
The front of the upcoming Wuling Victory stars a massive hexagonal-shaped grille, which features a darkened finish, three slim horizontal bars, and a fatter fourth one supporting the new logo. In addition, the headlight clusters are sharp and thin, while the large, “wolf’s claw” four-segment fog lights and very aggressive bumper also stand out.
The side-profile sketches confirm that the body of the Victory MPV will have a creased waistline starting at the front fender, flowing through the taillights and shaping the contour of the vehicle. In addition, the roofline is highlighted by a chrome molding that runs along the entire top of the side windows, ending on a glass-concealed D-pillar. This gives it a streamlined silhouette and a “floating roof” effect.
Meanwhile, the first things that catch the eye at the rear are the long taillights that extend from the sides to almost half through the tailgate. The latter features a very vertical drop, including a license plate cutout and a prominent spoiler on top that houses the CHMSL. It should be noted that in the images, there isn’t a logo on the tailgate.
The upcoming Wuling Victory MPV will be officially revealed at the end of July in the city of Chengdu, located in southwest China. This model will be the first piece of Wuling’s global strategy, which aims to increase its international reach through a new corporate image and a portfolio of next-generation vehicles that will include this new design language – whose slogan and official name have not yet been revealed.
