Could There Be a New Chevrolet Crossover Coupe in the Works?
An exciting development could be in the works for Chevrolet. Rumors within the automotive industry hint that General Motors is developing a new Chevrolet crossover coupe. Although the subcompact crossover is still being kept quiet and we don’t know the model’s name yet, it appears GM’s Korean subsidiary is taking the lead in developing the new Chevrolet crossover.

Where the Model Fits Within Chevrolet’s Current Lineup
Chevrolet has been beefing up its lineup over the past decade, and the manufacturer has made big plans to shift towards an all-electric future. It had been notably absent, however, from the crossover coupe space for quite some time. The new model is expected to be small in size and will likely slot between the crossover SUV in the Trailblazer and the Trax. Car sales for Chevrolet’s Tracker model, which is sold in Mexico, South America and China, have been quite successful. The new crossover coupe model may be an attempt to capture that success in the American market.
What We Know About the Model’s Look
Taking its cues from the Chevy Tracker, the crossover coupe will likely combine hints of the current Chevy Blazer with the front-ends style and size of the Tracker. Chevrolet utilities have used these two models as baselines for other crossover models. The new coupe’s slope of the A-pillar and the shape of the two front windows will take after those of the Tracker. In international markets, the Tracker replaced the first-generation Trax, so Chevrolet may be testing a refined version of it for American drivers.
On the exterior, the newly developed vehicle will feature large primary rear windows followed by a small vanity window following the rear door and extending to the C-pillar. Meanwhile, the B-pillar will extend a rapidly sloping roofline. These style elements indicate it may be similar in execution to the Audi Q5 Sportback’s most current generation.
The Platform Supporting the New Crossover Coupe
Chevrolet is expected to place the models on a variant of the GM VSS-F platform currently used by the model’s inspiration, the Chevy Trailblazer. It will be unlike the GEM platform that currently supports the Tracker. This platform will be less complex and less costly, perfectly combining the best elements of the Trailblazer and Tracker.
Chevrolet has also hinted at a subcompact crossover automatic transmission. The automatic transmission will be complimented by a small-displacement, turbocharged gasoline engine with standard front-wheel drive and optional all-wheel drive.
When to Expect the Chevy Crossover Coupe
The model still appears to be in development, but it could begin production as early as the beginning of 2023. It is expected to be available in the U.S. and Canada, along with select international markets.
