The American brand has published the first teaser of the new SUV. The premiere of the model will take place in the third quarter of this year.

The new crossover is designed primarily for the Chinese market: the image of the all-terrain vehicle appeared on the local Chevrolet website. The Chinese name of the novelty is Wolanduo. Note that the car on the teaser is very similar to the camouflaged SUV, photos of which appeared on the web several days ago.

Judging by the picture, the cross will be available in the certified version of the Redline – this is hinted by the red inserts on the bumper and the black emblem of the brand. The description of the model says that it is aimed, first of all, at young families. In China, Chevrolet Wolanduo will make its debut in the third quarter of 2018. The manufacturer does not give other details.

Chinese profile media suggest that the crossover will be offered with a seven-seat saloon, and under the hood of the novelty there is a gasoline turbomotor 1.3, its power is still unknown. The engine will probably be combined with a six-speed manual and an automatic transmission.

It is not excluded that the production of the all-terrain vehicle will be established in China at the joint venture joint venture between General Motors and SAIC. At the moment, there is no information on plans to ship the novelty outside of China.

Today Chevrolet sells in China only two crossover: Trax (in some markets – Tracker) and Equinox. The first SUV can be bought with a turbo four capacity of 1.4 liter and power of 143 hp (205 Nm), the second is presented with turbo engines 1.5 (179 hp, 275 Nm) and 2.0 (260 hp, 353 Nm). Both models have all-wheel drive versions. Price Trax – from 99,900 yuan, Equinox will cost a minimum of 174,900 yuan. Most likely, Wolanduo will occupy a niche between these crosses.

Previously, the Chevrolet brand unveiled the SUV, for which the name Blazer was revived. This model has so far only been announced for the United States.
