I have to say this looks pretty tough.

Article even says it’s aimed at the Wrangler and upcoming Bronco.

All I see is ANY current SUV with bigger tires on it. Anyone can do that. Now either keep same basic styling Jeep has always had, or do the Bronco retro looking and you have something there. What GMC is doing would be the same as take a 4Runner and slap some big tires on it..that won't increase sales.

It has come up before, and it isn't any more believable today. GM has something similar they call the Trailblazer in other parts of the world ... but the Trailblazer and Blazer in the North American market will be crossover insults to their names. Any GMC version will be GMs typical upcharge 'premium' trim version of the same Chevy models.

Putting big tires on a Arcadia isn't going to help its dismal sales any.

The key is body on frame design, which is what a Jeep is and what the new Bronco will be, the Baby Bronco will be on a unibody frame

I agree 100%. As the old saying goes, "You can't make chicken salad out of chicken chit. You can put it in a container and label it chicken salad, but it's still chicken chit".

Nothing here to see, move along. Looks like a jellybean crossover with big tires. If they seriously aimed that crossover station wagon/mini-van at the Wrangler they obviously have poor eyesight and are terrible shots and are pretty clueless as to why the Wrangler owners will laugh at that pathetic attempt of parts bin designing.

HORRIBLE! That's why i stopped buying GM years ago. They have no business building the crap they do. No wonder they're tanking

Reminds me of a vehicross! I'm sure this is just concept work, I doubt they would be launching something like this anytime soon with the upcoming "Baby" Bronco. Also I think this would really only be a competitor to the Baby Bronco... no BOF means no real competition to the flagship Bronco or Jeep Wrangler

That isn’t happening.

If it was that is an ugly silly thing for them to produce.
