The Chevrolet Orlando (Korean: 쉐보레 올란도) (internal code J309) is a five-door, seven-seat compact MPV manufactured by GM Korea under the Chevrolet division for world-wide markets[3]

Chevrolet Orlando Concept (2008)[edit]

It is a 5-door, 7-seat concept vehicle based on Chevrolet Cruze sedan. It included a two-tier grille, headlamps that flow into the front fenders and muscular fender forms that wrap around the wheels, 2.0L 4-cylinder turbo-diesel engine rated 150 PS (110 kW; 148 hp) and 320 N·m (236 lb·ft).

The vehicle was unveiled in 2008 Paris Motor Show, and later in 2009 North American International Auto Show.[4]

In August 2009, at its extended product review, GM previewed the production-spec Orlando and confirmed its production.[5]

GM originally intended that the Orlando would go into production in the United States,[6] however, in May 2010, GM reversed their decision.[7] The Chevrolet Orlando sold in Canada starting in 2011 for the 2012 model year.[8] This crossover is now being produced at the Kunsan Assembly Plant in South Korea. Orlando has been sold also in Europe since 2011.

In 2010, GM showed the GMC Granite small MPV concept, which is similar to the Orlando.[9]

Production model was unveiled in 2010 Busan International Motor Show,[10] followed by 2010 Paris Motor Show,[11] 2013 North American International Auto Show.[12]

European model went on sale in early 2011.
