Chevy Orlando at Paris Auto Show 2008 (UPDATE)

The Chevy Orlando Concept was finally unveiled at the Paris Auto Show after a few initial sneak peeks. What finally appeared as the Chevrolet Orlando was a chunky-at-the-hips, kid haulin' pseudo-minivan. It's probably perfect for today's car market, but it won't roll off production lines for a couple of years.

The Chevy Orlando is based on the compact Chevy Cobalt and Cruze. As concept cars go, this was very, very tame.

Implications - I am highly skeptical as to whether or not this new car design has what it takes to replace the mini-van or the truck. While it may boast plenty of room for its passengers, the car does not sway me from keeping my beloved mini-van as my main mode of transportation.
