The new explorer Plus will be launched at the Beijing Auto Show in April. Can it be an explosion?

As a medium-sized brand, the models currently sold in the domestic market were officially listed on April 7, 2017. From April 2017 to the present, it’s almost exactly seven years, so it can also be regarded as "grinding a sword in seven years".



No, recently, SAIC-GM Chevrolet brand announced that a new generation of explorer Plus will be officially launched at the April Auto Show. As the successor model of the current explorer, the new car will provide two kinds of interior and exterior designs, RS and ACTIV, and friends who like it can undoubtedly start to pay attention to it again.

As a brand-new upgrade, Explorer Plus still has a tough appearance, and the overall look is hard-core with some fashion flavor, which is worthy of being an automobile product under the new generation.


Specific to the vehicle level, both the RS version and the ACTIV version adopt split headlights and honeycomb air intake grille, which are decorated by letter signs. Among them, the RS version of the air intake grille is more compact. The Activ version has a larger area of the air intake grille, and all of them are blackened.

Coming to the side, the body of Explorer Plus looks like a miniature version of Chevrolet Traverse, and the suspended roof looks very recognizable. In terms of size, the length, width and height of Explorer Plus are 4653/1902/1667mm and the wheelbase is 2730mm, which is also 51mm wider than the current American version.


It is worth mentioning that the RS version will pay more attention to daily road driving, while the Activ version will pay more attention to off-road orientation. At the same time, the two models will also be equipped with different styles of wheels and tires to better match their own performance.


In terms of interior, Chevrolet Explorer Plus will be equipped with a three-spoke steering wheel, with an 11-inch digital dashboard and an 11.3-inch central control screen. Overall, it looks more scientific than the cash. In addition, the new car will also be equipped with Chevrolet’s latest driver assistance and safety system to strengthen its competitiveness in intelligent driving.

In terms of power, at present, the overseas version of the new Explorer is equipped with a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The maximum output power of the new car is 177 horsepower and the maximum torque is 275 Nm. In the future, the domestic version is expected to be equipped with plug-in hybrid system. Of course, this is not to say that there is no pure fuel version in the domestic version, but a new version will be added. Everyone should pay attention here.


In terms of sales volume, at present, the domestic Explorer model has not been replaced for seven years, so in the last year, it only handed over a sales report card of 9989 new cars. Obviously, such sales volume is not enough to occupy a dominant position in the market and master the right to speak, so the brand-new explorer Plus is coming.

In terms of price, the current price of the explorer is 1849-239,900 yuan, and the terminal has a discount of about 50,000-60,000 yuan, which means that new cars can be bought at a price of 130,000 yuan or 140,000 yuan. What is even more surprising is that the number of explorers in some areas has actually dropped to more than 110,000, and the preferential margin is huge. Can you stand it?

But even so, consumers in the same price range can still buy such high-quality cars as CR-V,/,and Song PLUS DM-i, Geely and so on in domestic brands.


Therefore, the Chevrolet brand, which has been gradually marginalized in the domestic market, will undoubtedly face greater market competition pressure. This is also the biggest reason why SAIC-GM Chevrolet brand is easy to appear in the domestic market in April after the brand-new Explorer car series was released in overseas markets in January, because the competition between the automobile markets is not waiting for people at present.


In a word, the status of cash explorers in the eyes of Chinese people and the reputation among car owners are still quite good. Now the brand-new model will officially arrive in April, which also makes us look forward to what the real car will look like. Then, as a consumer with money to buy, will you consider adding a new generation of Chevrolet explorer made in China? Will it become an explosive model? Leave a message in the comment area and let’s discuss it together. (Text/Youshi Automobile Dazhuo)
