One of the stars of the North American Auto Show two years ago has faded away.
The GMC Granite was a compact, stylish, van-like concept that was intended for young, urban buyers.
It was aimed at consumers who considered the GMC Terrain or Chevrolet Equinox way, way too big for their neighborhoods. A 2013 debut was hinted.
"There's no Granite," says Jim Federico, vehicle line executive for General Motors' small and compact cars. "We got a lot of input, pretty good input, but we never moved it out of concept."
Federico was interviewed Monday at Detroit's North American International Auto Show. He offered no other details for the concept's demise.
