Last week, we reported that SAIC-GM-Wuling, the second General Motors joint venture in China, celebrated the production of its 22 millionth unit and launched the new Wuling Global Silver logo. Both announcements were highlighted by the upcoming Wuling Victory MPV, which was camouflaged, exposing only the new logo and its name. Now, we know that this new model will officially debut in July.
A company executive has just announced that the all-new Wuling Victory will be revealed at the next 2020 Chengdu Motor Show, which will open its doors to the public from July 24th to August 2nd in the city of the same name, located in southwest China. Wuling will simultaneously begin receiving the first orders for the new-generation MPV, which is slated to arrive at dealerships in late September.
The Wuling Victory is the vehicle that will spearhead the next chapter of GM’s best-selling brand in the Asian country, which plans to dramatically renew its image to expand its international reach and attract younger customers. As such, the Victory will be the first model to sport the new Wuling global silver logo and will debut a whole new design language for the brand.
Despite the camouflage, the first official images reveal that the Wuling Victory is a mid-sized vehicle and that it will have a much more modern look than the brand’s current MPVs. In this sense, a low and wide proportioned body is appreciated, with stylized design lines that boast a sophisticated image. The front features thin headlights, a brand new grille, and a bumper with angled shapes.
In addition, the upcoming Victory MPV will be the first Wuling model built on the latest platform that SAIC-GM-Wuling has introduced last year on the Baojun RS-5. This architecture, which is the basis for the latest Baojun models using the brand’s new logo and nomenclature scheme, was entirely developed by SGMW to drive the repositioning and expansion of its two brands.
The Wuling Victory MPV is expected to include a standard three-row, six-seat interior configuration as well as being equipped with state-of-the-art powertrains and technologies. Although it will initially launch in China, the new model will also be phased into a growing number of foreign markets that will be part of Wuling’s international expansion.
