Minivans are out; in any event customary full-estimate minivans are out. Anyhow the individuals convey usefulness of a minivan-like vehicle is still truly in, as the notoriety of auto based hybrid Suvs confirms.
The Orlando will be among the most recent things in a minimal hybrid SUV when it lands at merchants at some point in the spring/summer of 2011. That implies tight bundling on the outside (it'll just be a couple of inches longer by and large than the Cruze vehicle on which its based - and more modest outside than the flow Chevy Traverse) yet still deal with three columns of grown-up inviting seats within and space for seven travelers utilizing a framework Chevy calls Flex-7.
That is a "2-3-2" design, with a fold-level (into the carpet) third line and second column situates that could be slid forward and retrogressive, to boost load limit or legroom, as you lean toward.
The idea auto Chevy showed for the media had a slick, full-length display glass top and a 2.0 liter turbo-diesel motor yet expect the U.s. adaptation to accompany a gas motor - most likely a form of the "Eco" four-chamber utilized as a part of the Cruze.
At first, the Orlando will be front-drive-just, however all-wheel-drive will presumably be accessible alternatively later on in the generation run.
