DETROIT -- General Motors Co. has dropped a plan to sell the seven-seat Chevrolet Orlando crossover in the United States. In January 2009, GM said it would offer the Orlando here in 2011.
Instead, Chevrolet will use more production capacity for the Equinox and Traverse SUVs and the Malibu sedan. The Orlando is based on the same basic vehicle structure as the Cruze small car.
GM still plans to sell the Orlando in Canada, Europe and Asia.
