The concept previews the new Camro-inspired design that will be seen on future Chevrolet SUVs.
Chevrolet has unveiled the new FNR-CarryAll concept SUV at the 2018 Guangzhou motor show in China.
Inspired by the iconic Camaro’s styling the company says that the the FNR-CarryAll concept SUV “offers a reinterpretation of Chevrolet’s lean muscular styling and features the brand’s new-generation SUV design language, which contains both contemporary and expressive elements.”
The third concept from Chevrolet to receive the FNR designation, model’s name was inspired by Chevrolet’s first SUV in 1935, the Suburban Carryall. The concept SUV is meant to embody the future development trend of Chevrolet SUVs, including their powerful capability, all-around comfort and advanced connectivity technology.
At 5,000mm in length, 2,258mm in width and 1,693mm in height, along with a 2,867mm wheelbase, the concept features an independent six-seat layout.
The model displayed at the auto show has a Pearl Black exterior with a bold front face and a boomerang D-pillar design. It also has a panoramic sunroof with an integrated parametric pattern, 22-inch aluminum alloy wheels, a sports car-inspired hood-mounted air extractor, red Brembo brake calipers, carbon ceramic rotors and a carbon-fiber roof.
The interior gets a black finish and sports a 12-inch full LCD dashboard, a 10-inch touchscreen in the center console and a smart touchscreen in the second-row. It also features a cantilever-type two-tone black leather sports seats with red suede accents, heating and air-conditioning controls for rear passengers, red backlit accent lighting, Camaro-inspired circular vents with satin chrome and red accents, and illuminated sill plates on the doors and trunk opening.
Over six million Chevrolets have been delivered in China since the brand’s launch by SAIC-GM in 2005. In the first 10 months of 2018, Chevrolet delivered 4,22,549 vehicles nationwide, achieving growth of 3.6 percent on an annual basis.
While Chevrolet no longer has a presence in the Indian market, the technical centre is still operational and the brand’s factory still churns out models for export markets.
