GMC Urban Utility Concept – Click above for high-res image gallery

"Efficient. Compact. Fashionable."

That's how General Motors sums up its teaser of the GMC Urban Utility Concept before its official reveal next week at the Detroit Auto Show. Although GM Labs doesn't divulge much about the concept, the second teaser and few lines from the site provide a clear indication of what GMC is attempting to produce: a Kia Soul, Nissan Cube and Scion xB competitor.

Like its boxy brethren, GMC is pitching the Urban Utility Concept (previously disclosed as the Chevrolet Orlando-based "Granite") as the mobile home-away-from-home for the modern youth, calling it "a new breed of truck that's as efficient as it is chic, innovative as it is functional." The popularity of the aforementioned four-wheeled refrigerator boxes notwithstanding, does a compact trucklet really fit in with GMC's "Professional Grade" image? Let us know in the comments below.
