The Chevrolet Orlando (Korean: 쉐보레 올란도) (internal code J309) is a five-door, seven-seat compact MPV manufactured by Chevrolet for world-wide markets from 2011.

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.[3]

In August 2009, at its extended product review, GM previewed the production-spec Orlando and confirmed its production.[4]

GM originally intended that the Orlando would go into production in the United States,[5] however, in May 2010, GM reversed their decision.[6] The Chevrolet Orlando sold in Canada starting in 2011 for the 2012 model year.[7] 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.[8]

Production model was unveiled in 2010 Busan International Motor Show,[9] followed by 2010 Paris Motor Show,[10] 2013 North American International Auto Show.[11]

European model was in sale from 2011 to 2014 when most of Chevrolet's vehicles, except muscle and sports cars were permanently withdrawn from the European market, except Russia and CIS member nations. Later in 2015 Chevrolet Orlando discontinued the Russian market.[12]

Model discontinued for the 2015 model year in Canada.[13] Per GM Canada Customer Service, when asked about the global status of the Chevrolet Orlando: "Thank you for your patience while we investigated your inquiry about the Chevrolet Orlando. We are certain you can appreciate that, in a business such as the automotive industry, changing market conditions, economy, and customer vehicle requirements are all factors taken into consideration and will often influence business decision. I am sorry to say at this time General Motors has discontinued the Chevrolet Orlando. Your expression of confidence is gratefully received, and we appreciate your comments concerning the Chevrolet Orlando."

Diesel engine for Korean market has been updated in 2015 to meet the government's Euro 6 requirement. All diesel Chevrolet Orlando sold in Korea is equipped with 1.6 liter inline-four CDTi engine outsourced from Opel.[14]
