    What If Chevy Made a Corvette SUV to Compete with the Porsche Cayenne?

    Now, we don't have any reason to think that a Corvette SUV is something that Chevy is even considering, and neither does Bob Lutz, seemingly. But what he said got us thinking: What if Chevy actually did make a Corvette SUV? It's not such a preposterous idea even if there's no basis for it, and we also think it's a no-brainer for Chevy to expand the Corvette brand beyond just the titular model.

    Porsche was a pioneer of the super-sporty SUV with the Cayenne, and since that model's inception, tons of high-end manufacturers have all gotten into the fast-SUV game, tying in the models with their existing sports cars. But Chevy, which has a history of both iconic SUVs and iconic sports cars, has never even shown a concept imagining what a sporty SUV from the bow-tie brand could look like. So we took a shot at imagining it ourselves.

    To answer the Title of the Article...it'll probably be FWD w/ a 3.6 as the only available engine.

    Now if GM had some balls and built the Corvette SUV, it would be based on Alpha w/ styling awfully similar to the rendering. It would also ring in an expansion of the Corvette nameplate accompanied by a Corvette Sedan (ala Panamera) and a FE evolution of the C7 to go along w/ the ME C8 to be sold alongside Cadillac in a premium-only showroom. No more Corvettes sharing showroom space w/ Malibus.

    Anyway, my tweaks to the render would be enlarge and extend the headlights so that the LED strip flows into the chrome bar across the grille, then remove the lighting elements from the foglight section shift down about a 6" and use that as a brake cooling vent/duct/etc.

    Something like this should have been started 10 years ago..It's a shame that GM continually chooses to miss the ball.

    OTOH, my answer to "What if..." is, Huh? You mean, like Genesis? Like, that?

    Others won't agree but ...... something like this is how you save "Camaro".


    On the other hand if one is literally going after the Cayenne and similar in full then no question, it should be a Cadillac and if skewed a bit more towards Alfa, then a Buick.

    Yup should be a Cadillac on the Omega chassis. There's nothing about a Corvette that should be an SUV. Corvette is a two seater high performance sports car. Period.

    Should not be a Cadillac first and foremost, Caddy's don't sale, waste of product if it was a Caddy. Cadillac has product now it still does not sale. If this was the case, keep the Camaro, Make performance lineup under Chevrolet, call it the SS Lineup or something under the Corvette Umbrella under Chevrolet. Build a new Styled Camaro basically a Front engine 4 seat Corvette (C7 backseat/Ferrari), Mid Engine C8, Corvette SUV, and a Door Sedan Panamara/Karma type of car. Make them Hybrids,Electric, and Gas. wining lineup then IMO.

    I seen this earlier, I would buy it, along side my C7, or C8 would have to come first. I think this could be a Easier sale to my wife then some stuffy SUV/CUV.

    If gm created a corvette crosstrek like a porsche macan id get one for my wofe as would almost every other corvette owner...

    Gm sales of the porsche macan or tesla model Y competitor from the corvette team would be a huge win..l

    Will GM move on this great idea? Doubtful...too many executives will nix the out of the box solution for great success and the idea will die in committee.

    #1 that car absolutely NEEDS to exist
    with the Camaro on life support I would "support" a CORVETTE "family"
    could also see a vette "california" as an entry to grab UPPER Camaro buyers and the stingray ai close to the price point of a loaded Camaro
    I would also HOPE GM decides to take VETTE more global and leave caddy and Chevrolet behind
