GM unveiled the 2023 Chevy Seeker in Shanghai last month, revealing Chevy’s latest global compact crossover. Critically, GM Authority has learned that the Chevy Seeker will not be available in North America.
At present, the 2023 Chevy Seeker is set to launch in the Chinese market later this year, slotting in between the Chevy Trailblazer and Chevy Equinox with regard to Chevy’s crossover lineup. Additionally, the new crossover is expected to be announced for additional international markets in the next few months. That said, the Chevy Seeker will not be offered in the U.S. or Canada, per GM Authority sources.
As seen during its debut event in China last month, as well as subsequent GM Authority images of the crossover testing without camouflage in Michigan, the 2023 Chevy Seeker offers an engaging design that is intended to draw in younger buyers, with a fascia that features slick horizontal lighting signatures paired with vertical, forward-facing lighting elements. The profile view shows off an angled shoulder line that rises towards the rear of the vehicle, emphasizing the rear haunches and fenders, lending the crossover a sportier flavor. The taillights complement the look as well, wrapping into the rear quarter panels.
Inside the cabin, the 2023 Chevy Seeker features a new dash layout and dual 10.25-inch, horizontally oriented displays. The new Seeker also supports wireless Apple CarPlay and over-the-air software updates.
As for what’s under the skin, the 2023 Chevy Seeker rides on the GM VSS-F vehicle set, while motivation is sourced from GM’s new eighth-generation turbocharged 1.5L Ecotec engine. As GM Authority covered last year, GM launched the new Ecotec engine family with the all-new Buick Verano Pro in China, while peak output is rated at 181 horsepower. A continuously variable transmission is the exclusive transmission option on the table.
Notably, the 2023 Chevy Seeker may be one of the next Chevy-branded crossovers built in South Korea starting next year, in addition to production in China.
