Click above for high-res gallery of the Chevy Orlando Concept

Just a few days ago, we got to see Chevy unveil the Orlando concept at the Paris Motor Show. We surmised at the time that this seven-seat multi-purpose vehicle seems like the logical next step for the idea that General Motors started with the Chevy HHR. Perhaps it won't be. Motor Authority is claiming that the production version of the Orlando won't be assembled in the U.S. and we may get passed over entirely due to the expected cost of the vehicle, which is based on the same Delta platform as the upcoming Cruze compact car and Volt series hybrid. Additionally, GM has stated that it has no plans to end production of the HHR anytime soon. But this is all speculation for now. As for whether it's much ado about nothing, we'll see.

      Ya know I bought my daughter an HHR because thats what she wanted, it gets pretty good MPG and the price was hard to beat. I've used a little and I have say I like it a lot! I would really give the Orlando a look for my next car if it cames to the US so I hope makes it here.

      That car is 10 times the car the HHR is, of course GM still hasn't learned its lesson on horrible looking cars in the US and insists on giving the rest of the world better cars then its home market.

      I'm sure GM did some market research and found that "Americans love the HHR with its awful retro-styling and would be averse to a better performing better looking vehicle."

        you took the words right out of my mouth, don't forget, global warming's also a crock of sh!t.

        A lot of people like the look of the HHR. Myself included.

        It seems the anti-GM crowd strongly assume everyone thinks like them.

      Is it just because this is a replacement for a Chevy we currently don't get, the Captiva?

      I saw some in Europe, it looked okay. Like virtually all Chevys in Europe, it's a Daewoo underneath.

      Good. It is stupid and ugly.

      Dumb move not to make it in the USA if they will be already building the same platform for the Cruze and Volt here.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I think this is a dumb move on GMs part IF they don't bring it to the US. They could keep the HHR around for a while and sell the Orlando with it. Each vehicle would attract a different crowd.

      Naturally! GM and Ford make their best cars over-seas, and leave us with the US-Spec Foci, abysmally boring Uplanders, etc. etc. What else would we expect!?
      • 6 Years Ago
      Here's my theory.

      They're trying to pull a Ford:

      "Build beautiful, competitive or class-leading vehicles but sell them in all markets except the home market. Then, when people start bitching that they actually WANT our products and word goes around that we actually MAKE good products, we start bringing them here and sell tons of 'em."

      Somewhat of an odd strategy, but it might work...

      "U.S. may miss out on production Chevy Orlando"---Great. Who needs another SUV or CUV?
        • 6 Years Ago
        Isn't it an MPV, not an SUV or CUV?
      • 6 Years Ago
      Do GM make *any* new cars in North America anymore?
        • 6 Years Ago
        Aren't we bailing those SOB's out as well?
      • 6 Years Ago
      U.S. may miss out on all future GM vehicles because the company may go bankrupt for making bad decisions
