We're not entirely certain, but it sure looks like it. General Motors recently released a YouTube vid explaining what makes a Chevrolet a Chevrolet that shows a series a of sweeping shots that catches bowtie specials like the Corvette Grand Sport and the 2010 Camaro. At around 1:05, the camera focuses on the C-Pillar of a Camaro, and as the shot pans across the coupe's greenhouse, a quick glimpse of two production-ready Chevy crossover vans is given.

The crossover on the right looks a whole lot like the Chevy Orlando concept debuted at the 2008 Paris Motor Show last fall, which also looks an awful lot like the vehicle captured in these spy photos below. The Orlando is set to replace the HHR in Chevy showrooms by 2011 with seating for seven and car-like fuel economy.

The crossover on the left could be even more interesting, as it appears to share styling cues with the Volt, an example of which is parked next to it. Could this be a crossover with the automaker's extended range EV Voltec hardware underhood? Is it the Chevy version of the plug-in Buick crossover we heard about last week? Again, we can't be sure with just a few seconds of video as evidence, but we're willing to wager that the Volt styling cues signifies that there is likely an electric motor and batteries somewhere under that hood.

GM likely has managers and ad execs who scour these videos before they ever see the light of day, so we should assume that the company is simply giving us a cryptic peek at what is to come. Follow the jump to view the vid for yourself. Thanks for the tip, Ted!

      When will they stop the melted jelly bean shapes? When will they stop acting like we all have 75 grand to spend on their cars? It still looks like the same old GM, if you have big bucks you can have a good looking GM product, if not, too bad. Guess I'm showing my age, 300C still is the top dog for style, until they melt that under the governments thumb.

        Love your previous post...

        Autoblog: "Toyota reverses decision, chooses to again seek quality over market share"

        "God himself could not have said what you said any better.Toyota is very good and I love them."

        I can only imagine you making a positive comment on anything that is not make by the Japanese Domestic Market.

        I see the LOTR connection. But is it named after an actor, a city or an old time singer?
        • 5 Years Ago
        Yes, because everyone has the same need. One vehicle to rule them all!

      It looks a bit like the chevy sequel, but it definitely has a different front fascia. Interesting scoop! It's a shame there was no sneak peak of the new bu that is coming.

      Had a Chevy that the dealer wouldn't or couldn't fix to my satisfaction.
      Traded that sucker off PDQ for a new F150. Love my new Ford.
      It's your money, spend on what you like.

      See this is why GM always fails and will be gone within years. They come up with something good like the new electric car motors then wrap it in piles of crap. look at those things are they the ugliest cars you have seen. They have the HHR which is a good looking car with poor engines and insides that look like plastic kids stuff. If they would take a few lessons on design make the inside and out not look like a retarded elephant they might have something. They got the Camero right finally. Only took about 20 years between decent models.They have just gotten the malibu and impala right althought the impala shouldnt be called an impala but a something else as its anything but an impala. Gm just needs to get some concept people who can make an attrractive car and interior as people wont buy ugly cars ask edsel.

      GM pulled the video!

      What more proof do we need that these were the real deal? As for the guy who posted it, well, I guess there's one more unemployed in Detroit.
