GMC Granite

GMC Granite

The American truck builder GMC unveiled the Granite concept, a compact crossover with a unique opening arrangement similar to a German cousin, at the 2010 Detroit Auto Show. The GMC Granite GMC Granite Concept combines the same monolithic stone like design that General Motors brought to market with the full sizeTerrain , however this time in a smaller streamlined MPV style body. The new concept combines urban industrial design with everyday practicality and is aimed at young time crunched professionals.

If the Granite becomes a production vehicle, it will become the smallest GMC ever. Powered by a boosted 1.4 Liter four cylinder engine and gas sipping six speed transmission, the turbocharged mini truck would make for a very efficient, practical and stylish mode of urban commuting. The exterior of the Granite features an over sized version of GMC’s signature grill with a pair of vertical LED headlamps that trail back into either fender and dare we say R8 inspired vents underneath. Add in an interior that is easy on the eyes, a brushed metal tip sticking out the center of the back bumper and cap it off with a 20 inch set of wheels and you get one bad little GMC truck.

Press release after the jump.
