Chevrolet Seeker Crossover Officially Debuts in China


In April this year, China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology released images of the new Chevrolet crossover for the Chinese market and it looks great. The high-riding Chevy – officially dubbed the Seeker – is now making its full debut in the People’s Republic with an eye-catching design and lots of great technology.

The vehicle you see in the gallery below fits perfectly into photos from earlier this year, showing a sharp-looking crossover with a long hood and short overhangs. If it looks a bit familiar to those of you sitting on standard 18-inch wheels, it’s probably because it seems to have the same effect as the current-generation Buick Envision, another SAIC-GM joint venture model. The two, however, don’t share much more than the exterior appearance.

Inside the cabin, the Seeker features a high-tech cab with a dual-screen layout featuring two 10.25-inch displays. The one in the center of the dashboard is tilted towards the driver by about nine degrees for better visibility and ergonomics. The infotainment system runs the new Xiaoxue operating system which is exclusive to China and supports over-the-air software updates and wireless Apple CarPlay. It’s nice to see the screen surrounded by smooth perforated leather for a smoother overall feel.

The front seats are power-adjustable, heated and ventilated with adjustable waist support. Adding further to the rich standard equipment are the cordless phone charging pad and power liftgate. Customers can also order the new Seeker with Chevrolet’s Tune Dynamic premium sound system, which provides a “new auditory experience for drivers and passengers as they discover new paths on their own.” This is the first SAIC-GM product to be offered with this audio system.

Powering the crossover is a new 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine from the Ecotec family. The automaker didn’t release specifications for the factory, although we do know it has a peak output of 180 horsepower (134 kilowatts). The maximum speed that the Seeker can reach with this engine is 127 miles per hour (205 kilometers per hour).
