The Chevrolet Orlando was introduced as a concept vehicle at the 2008 Paris Motor Show. It was announced at the 2009 Detroit Auto Show that the Orlando would go into production in the US along with the Chevrolet Spark.In the 2010 Geneva Motor Show we have an oppurtunity to capture some pictures of the Chevrolet Orlando.It is one of the more intriguing concept stars at the auto shows.
The Orlando MPV has five doors and seats up to seven comfortably with theater-style seating in three rows.It has a distinctive contrast between the hood and the windshield lines and flared fenders for a confident stance that cuts an attractive silhouette.
Built on the same platform as the 2011 Chevrolet Cruze, the Orlando concept has a 108.6-inch wheelbase. That’s about 3-inches longer than the Cruze. The Orlando also has a wider front and rear track than the Cruze to open up more space inside. A 2.0-liter turbocharged diesel engine powered the concept, but expect the production vehicle to switch to a similarly sized gasoline engine for the U.S. market.
