As General Motors officially announced last week, the all-new 2023 Chevy Seeker made its world debut on July 28th during a special event in Shanghai – China’s largest and most iconic city.
The automaker has just revealed the all-new 2023 Chevy Seeker for the first time in China as Chevrolet‘s new global compact crossover, which will expand the brand’s utility portfolio with an avant-garde design proposition and standard high-tech features. GM says the new Seeker was designed to appeal to younger customers who prefer a bold and distinctive utility vehicle.
“The all-new Seeker features an upgraded powertrain, new design and enhanced connectivity,” said General Director of Chevrolet for SAIC-GM, Jack Uppal, in an official press release. “Its exciting styling, class-leading performance, comfortable interior and intelligent technology will appeal to today’s younger vehicle buyers,” he added.
Aesthetically, the all-new 2023 Chevy Seeker debuts the latest evolution of Chevrolet’s design language with a low roofline and muscular proportions that give it a sporty character. Highlights include the X-shaped character lines that define both the aggressive front end design and the voluminous rear end, as well as the premiere of the new Contemporary Gold paint color for the first time in China, looking to appeal to young customers.
As GM Authority teased exclusively in April, the interior design of the all-new 2023 Chevy Seeker adopts the new dash layout of the brand’s next-generation vehicles with dual 10.25-inch displays, each prominently integrated in a horizontal panel that emphasizes the width of the cabin. In addition, the Seeker debuts a new operating system that supports over-the-air software updates and wireless Apple CarPlay.
Based on the VSS-F platform, the all-new 2023 Chevy Seeker is powered by the new eighth-generation turbocharged 1.5L engine from the Ecotec family that GM launched last year with the all-new Buick Verano Pro in China. The engine generates 177 horsepower and is mated exclusively to a continuously variable automatic transmission. Although the company did not reveal the details, the Seeker RS is expected to offer AWD.
The all-new 2023 Chevy Seeker will launch for the first time later this year in China, where it will be built to supply the local market by positioning itself between the Chevy Trailblazer and the Equinox. The new Seeker is also expected to be announced in other countries in the coming months and could be one of the next Chevrolet crossovers to be built by GM in South Korea starting next year.
