Just a month after the world debut of the all-new 2023 Chevy Seeker in China, General Motors announced that it has just started pre-sales of Chevrolet‘s new compact crossover in the Asian country.
The automaker reports that as of Thursday, September 1st, it began receiving the first orders for the all-new 2023 Chevy Seeker in China, where it plans to end the pre-sale period for the model on September 26th, just before the official launch. As such, the new compact crossover is expected to start arriving at dealerships in China later this month.
The official pre-sale price of the all-new 2023 Chevy Seeker in China starts at 139,900 yuan – equivalent to about $20,270 USD at current exchange rates, for the base version that the manufacturer says will come standard with class-leading technology and safety features. Notably, that’s the same current starting price of the Chevy Trailblazer in RS trim level in the Chinese market.
Customers who pre-order the 2023 Chevy Seeker have the opportunity to receive special gifts prepared by the brand, including a 99 to 9,999 yuan gift card, free lifetime maintenance for the first owners to receive their unit, interest-free financing for 24 months, a 5,000 yuan gift certificate at fuel stations, and an outdoor camping kit.
At the same time, the SAIC-GM joint venture officially announced that the Chinese name for the all-new Chevy Seeker is “星迈罗” or Star Mai Luo. This was selected by the general public in China through an online vote, in which the opinion of fans of the brand was consulted on several different nameplates. Notably, the Seeker’s Star Mai Luo designation is based on the name of the fifth-generation Chevy Camaro in China.
The all-new 2023 Chevy Seeker, which is built on the GM VSS-F vehicle set, is expected to be available for sale at Chevrolet’s official dealer network in China in the last week of this month, becoming a strategic model that debuts the Bow Tie brand’s latest design evolution and introduces new features. The Seeker is an expressively designed compact crossover that sits between the Chevy Trailblazer and Chevy Equinox.
