If your head's still spinning from General Motors' decision to pull the Orlando from its domestic offerings, you might want to sit down. According to a report on M Live, things are about to get a little more bizarre. The site names an unnamed source as saying GM will begin building a new small Buick crossover at its Orion assembly plant sometime soon. The company has made it clear that it is interested in Buick snagging younger buyers, and a CUV would be a smart way to do just that.
That's all fine and good, but supposedly the newest product isn't going to be an all-new design. Instead it will be based on none other than the all-new Chevrolet Aveo. GM is already shipping equipment to the facility to begin production on the next-generation compact, and M Live's source has led the site to believe the pint-sized Buick won't be far behind.
Buick is scheduled to unveil its new product plan later this week, which means we'll have a good idea of whether or not we can expect Buick showrooms to get a little more crowded in the near future. Stay tuned. Thanks for the tip, Mike!
