Detroit, Michigan – General Motors has announced that it will present the world premiere of the Orlando show car at the Paris Motor Show in October. In a release, the company said the Orlando is “a clear indication that Chevrolet is considering an expansion to its portfolio with a seven-seat multi-purpose vehicle with distinctive sport utility-like design, adaptable seating and impressive interior space.”

Based on the recently-announced, all-new Cruze compact sedan, the Orlando explores the potential of combining a sport utility, family van and wagon in a single execution.

The show car uses Chevrolet’s latest-generation 2.0-litre turbodiesel engine and includes theatre-styling seating in three rows that can accommodate up to seven occupants, or be transformed into a large cargo area.
