A Jeep Wrangler fighter it ain’t, however that doesn’t imply Common Motors’ truck division can’t go smaller and nonetheless have consumers lining up at its door.

Spy photographs taken in Arizona present not one, however three small camouflaged crossovers present process checks, and the horizontal chrome slats filling the grille ought to tip you off that there’s a future GMC vehicle beneath these wrappings. A small or subcompact mannequin has lengthy been in consideration for the model, and one take a look at Buick would inform GMC brass why it’s a good concept to have an Encore-like mannequin of its personal.

Nevertheless, GMC consumers wouldn’t be happy if their new vehicle seemed like a Chevrolet Trax or Encore.

As we see right here, GMC isn’t following its sister divisions’ result in the letter on the subject of styling. This mannequin, tentatively referred to as the Granite (GMC launched a idea vehicle underneath that identify in 2010 and trademarked the nameplate in 2015) rides atop no matter platform underpins the subsequent-era Trax and Encore, however appears extra butch doing it.

Assume again to the first-gen Terrain, and the way it stood out towards its Chevy sister. (Attempt to not think about the second-gen Terrain.) After taking a look at current spy photographs of the subsequent Encore, this mannequin seems barely longer in physique — it might be a trick, however maybe it’s needed to achieve a extra squared-off look. Take a look at that entrance overhang!

Whereas the entrance-finish camo finally ends up making this factor seem like one thing rejected by Fiat Chrysler designers, circa 2014, it’s clear there’ll be a beneficiant grille opening, placing additional design distance between it and its siblings.

GMC boss Duncan Aldred beforehand stated that going smaller is a logical step for the model. Sadly for these GM followers who wish to play in the mud, rumors of a brawny, compact off-roader did not materialize, although this household-pleasant gambit looks like the extra worthwhile selection.

Powertrain-sensible, there’s little to go on, however sharing structure additionally means sharing a nice deal of shifting elements. The Granite, if that is the mannequin’s identify, will doubtless seem in 2020 and subject a turbocharged 1.four-liter 4-cylinder, at the very least as a base motor. As six speeds continues to be sufficient for the Acadia, anticipate a comparable variety of cogs on this one.

GMC’s U.S. gross sales rose 2.four % over the first half of 2018, with quantity up 6.6 % in the second quarter of the yr.
