GMC Previews Urban Utility Concept for Detroit
Although full details still await its official unveiling next week at the North American International Auto Show, GMC has issued two teaser images of what it's now calling the Urban Utility Concept.
Beyond the front view shown here, GMC released a CAD-style wire profile showing the vehicle to be about the size of a Scion xB but with a far less boxy profile, with two rows of seats and a decently scaled rear cargo area. Thought to be based on the same platform as the soon-to-surface Chevy Orlando crossover but considerably shorter, it would appear to possess some interesting niche-filling potential. Frank Saucedo, Director of GM's Advanced Design Studio in Los Angeles, characterizes the Urban Utility Concept as "a new breed of truck that's as efficient as it is chic, innovative as it is functional. Our goal was to create the next generation of urban mobility, fusing a flexible, functional social space with an urban-box design that's equally at home at the cabin or the club." Stay tuned.
