Three months after the all-new Chevy Seeker was fully leaked in China, General Motors has just officially announced Chevrolet‘s upcoming compact crossover by unveiling the first teaser image in the Asian country.
The automaker announced that it will reveal the Chevy Seeker on July 28th during a special event in Shanghai, where the new model will make its world debut. In particular, the Chevy Seeker represents an entirely new nameplate for the global market that will further broaden the Bow Tie brand’s utility portfolio, positioning itself between the Chevy Trailblazer and the Equinox.
“Chevrolet’s latest global model in China benefits from the brand’s 87 years of introducing legendary SUVs that are fun to drive, functional and purpose-built,” said General Director of Chevrolet for SAIC-GM, Jack Uppal, in a statement. “The Seeker is joining the Blazer, Equinox and all-new Tracker RS to form a fully evolved Chevrolet SUV lineup. It will provide a range of high-quality personalized choices in a fast-growing market segment,” he added.
The first official teaser image of the upcoming Chevy Seeker previews the front end and silhouette confirming the crossover’s muscular proportions already seen in the leaked images. GM says the Seeker embraces Chevrolet’s new global design language and will feature highly expressive looks that will set it apart in the popular compact crossover segment.
The company claims that the interior design of the new Chevy Seeker will break “traditional perceptions” of a utility vehicle with a sporty, state-of-the-art cabin. In keeping with the model’s first interior view we captured back in April, the Seeker’s cabin will be highlighted by a pair of widescreen infotainment screens inspired by the brand’s latest products that give it a high-tech vibe.
The upcoming Chevy Seeker will make its world debut on July 28th in China, where the nameplate will go on sale internationally in the second half of this year. Being officially developed as a global model and built on the GM VSS-F vehicle set, the Seeker is also expected to be introduced in other markets and in fact could also be manufactured in South Korea as GM Authority exclusively announced in May.
