Not so long ago at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show we have received face lifted Chevrolet Captiva but it seems that GM is working on delivery of the all new model. This also means that the new Opel Antara will be offered in the next few years since this is rebadged Captiva.
Spy photos that we have delivered in this article suggest that something new will be offered by the Chevrolet. We can see that they have used Chevrolet Orlando for this test mule and even they wanted to hide the new vehicle but they did not manage to prevent our spy photographers to catch these images that suggest that this is not Orlando under the metal.
There are few reasons why we are pretty sure that this is not a new model of Chevy Orlando. First, we are getting two exhaust pipes on the back and that is something that we are not getting from Orlando. Also, we can notice that this vehicle comes with all-wheel drive which, again, is not available on Orlando. Many would suggest that even with these differences this still could be new Orlando but delivery of new 2015 Chevrolet Captiva makes much more sense.
When we compare these two vehicles we can also see that the wheelbase is slightly shorter and this is something that new Orlando would not offer. Changes are visible to the front end also, these were needed so that we could be getting new cooling and engine system that further point out to Captiva.
2015 Chevrolet Captiva Release Date
What we could hear from few sources and rumors is that the new Captiva will be built on the D2XX platform. This all new platform will be also used for the Chevrolet Cruze that we do expect to arrive during this year. We do not have the official release date for this new Chevy SUV but we do expect it to be presented earliest during the fall of this year but more likely just before the end of 2014th. It will be available at dealerships at the beginning of the 2015th.
Another thing that we are pretty sure about is the fact that when this new model comes to the market its exterior design will be significantly different than what we are able to see on these images. It will be significantly changed compared to Orlando and reports say that it might be much closer to the Opel Mokka that has been announced recently.
Images Of 2015 Chevrolet Captiva
When the 2015 Chevrolet Captiva comes to the market it will face heavy competitors like Mitsubishi Outlander and the Mazda CX-7. Outlander was represented at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show and still is pretty fresh while the CX-7 should be offered with a redesign pretty soon. This will most likely happen in the next few years and we could receive new model even before the end of this year. With introduction of these new models we will have pretty great competitors which mean that buyers will have more choices on market.
