Chevrolet Reignites FNR Moniker In Shanghai

Chevrolet is reusing the FNR nameplate in Shanghai with the FNR-X Concept. This concept is sort of a follow up to the original FNR Concept the brand revealed two years ago, only this one is a crossover (of course).

While this FNR looks more production-ready than the first one, it is still just a concept. It is likely just displaying the design abilities of GM’s design center in China, who penned the concept, and perhaps foreshadowing some design cues on future Chevy models.

The FNR-X is also showcasing some new technology. Powered by an undisclosed plug-in hybrid, the vehicle also has two drive modes, V and S. In V (for Versatility), the suspension raises for additional ground clearance and the self-driving function can operate off-road based on its own predictions of road conditions.

S mode lowers the suspension and some of the body elements adjust for greater aerodynamics.

    Was this perhaps the Equinox that got scrapped? That said, I think it looks pretty good even if a bit extroverted in creases and such.


    extremely interesting idea, Carnut

    Probably the fact that it's a crossover and will inevitably look hideous or just like a minivan in production.


    I guess the Camaro styling just doesn't translate to a CUV for me well.

    This is a Lexus copy. GM should have stuck with something like gmc granite.

    I agree also, big improvement. The front end gives me a little bit of a Lexus vibe, although it is actually opposite in shape. I like it overall.


    Looks better than any Lexus IMO.
