2012 Chevrolet Orlando expects to hit Canada in October with a starting price of $19,995


The 2012 Chevrolet Orlando will be available in October for Canada customers. Today, GM announced that the 2012 Chevrolet Orlando will carry a starting price tag of $19,995 in Canada.

Initially, GM plans to bring the new 2012 Chevrolet Orlando to the U.S, but later decided to offer the 7-seater model in Canada only. The 2012 Chevrolet Orlando will be available in Canada in three trims. Starting with the LS mode, it is priced at $19,995 CA (US$20,260),  the LT model starts at $22,295 CA, and the top-range LTZ model starts at $29,735 CA.

All 2012 Chevrolet Orlando trims are powered by a 2.4-liter Ecotec four-cylinder engine with direct-injection technology that produces about 174 horsepower. The engine is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission.

Fuel consumption is estimated at 6.7lt/100km (35.1 mpg US) on the highway and 10.1 lt/100 km (23.3 mpg US) in the city, while the 6-speed automatic delivers 6.9 lt/100 km (34 mpg US) on the highway and 10.6 lt/100km (22.2 mpg US) in the city.

“The new Orlando builds on the transformation of Chevrolet’s fuel efficient and versatile product portfolio, offering a family-friendly vehicle in a key segment in the Canadian market,” said Kevin Williams, president and managing director of General Motors of Canada. “With its expected segment-leading fuel efficiency and standard 7-passenger seating, Orlando should be a popular choice with Canadian families.”

Hopefully GM may reconsider of bring the 2012 Chevrolet Orlando to the States, if not, we may get the new Buick Enclave mini instead.
