Detroit 2010: GMC Granite
INDUSTRIAL-INSPIRED GMC GRANITE CONCEPT MAKES A SOLID STATEMENT ABOUT STYLE AND FUNCTION
DETROIT Combining a decidedly urban-industrial design aesthetic with functionality aimed at young professionals, the GMC Granite concept takes the brand's trademark capability in a new, more progressive direction. It was introduced at the 2010 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
If brought to market, the Granite would be the smallest GMC ever but has been optimized to feel much larger. Its length is a full 2 feet (0.6 m) shorter than the new Terrain compact crossover, but its open interior was designed to be spacious and flexible to fit the needs of active people. Generous cargo space and unique flipping/folding seats, for example, enable a mountain bike to be loaded completely inside with the tailgate closed.
"Granite was conceived as a new type of vehicle from GMC one that could stretch people's ideas of what a GMC can be," said Lisa Hutchinson, product marketing director for GMC. "We call it an 'urban utility vehicle' and our goal was redefining what the GMC name could mean to a new generation of customers looking for both bold design and functionality."
Like GMC's current lineup of trucks, SUVs and crossovers, the Granite delivers style and capability, with advanced features, high-quality materials and exceptional attention to detail. An industrial-influenced exterior is combined with a spacious interior that features precise instruments and leading-edge technology. The climate system, navigation and infotainment technologies, for example, are viewed via an extra-wide, next-generation organic light-emitting diode technology that is more dynamic than the conventional screens used in most production vehicles.
"We think of the Granite as the automotive equivalent of an urban loft apartment," said Dave Lyon, executive director of North American Interior and Global Cross-Brand Design. "The exterior has an unmistakable industrial look, but the interior is warm and personalized."
Power for the Granite concept comes from a 1.4L turbocharged engine that is part of GM's new family of small-displacement, highly efficient four-cylinder engines. It is matched with a six-speed transmission that uses dual-clutch technology for performance and smoothness.

2012 GMC Granite
Hello, This is ChevyCruze and welcome to AutoTalk.
Lately, I have been working on some photo shop chopping and I have made a rendering of the Rumored GMC Granite.
The Granite is going to based off the Chevy Orlando Concept which shares its Delta Platform underpinnings with the 2011 Chevy Cruze.
The Granite and the Orlando will be the successors to the Chevy HHR.
Theoretically you could consider the GMC Granite and the Chevy HHR as a Chevy Cruze Hatchback or wagon but General Motors prefers to consider these vehicles as compact Crossovers.
The Styling features of the GMC Granite are expected to be shared with the new GMC Terrain.
In this rendering I have included many Terrain styling cues, such as the headlights and the grille.
I have also created a less steep slope on the hatch to give it the look of a compact crossover.
We all love granite in our kitchens and our bathrooms and General Motors hopes that we would love to have Granite in our garage.
The real GMC Granite is expected to revealed at the 2010 Detroit Auto Show in the Cobo Hall
Thank you for watching this video and expect a followup video after the Granite is officially released at the Detroit Auto Show.
A five star rating and a comment related to GMC would be greatly appreciated.
