A new crossover from SAIC-GM, provisionally called Encore GX, has been revealed in MIIT's Notice #318. It is longer than the new Encore, also published in #318.

Dimensions & wheelbase:
New Encore: 4295 x 1798 x 1607/1616 mm; 2570 mm
New Tracker: 4270 x 1791 x 1610/1627 mm; 2570 mm
Encore GX: 4463 x 1813 x 1642/1644/1653 mm; 2640 mm

The Encore GX is powered by the 1341 cc, 116 kW engine.

The Tracker (JBUC) and new Encore (JBUB) are projects of SAIC-GM Norsom in Shenyang (link) and are based on the GEM JBXX platform.

The Encore GX (9BYB) is a project of SAIC-GM Dongyue in Yantai (cached link). Its wheelbase is 2640 mm, the same as Excelle GT/GX and Monza, but the latter are products of SAIC-GM Wuhan (PATAC-K family) based on a Gamma II/G2XX-derived platform, whereas the Encore GX is based off the new modular 9BXX. It is reasonable to assume there will be a Chevrolet version of this as well (9BYC). There is provision for 9BXX-based SWB CUVs (9BUB/C), slotting between the Encore/Tracker and Encore GX, but development of those is likely being carried out in Korea.

Chevrolet Trailblazer

Trailblazer was unveiled at Auto Shanghai 2019 and is expected in showrooms later this year as a 2020 model. The vehicle features a design cribbed from the larger Blazer, including the same split LED headlight motif that connects up with the central trim on the dual-intake grille. The model shown is the sporty Redline, so it also features 17-inch wheels.

GM North America has just announced that it will launch the Buick Encore GX and Chevrolet Trailblazer in the U.S. next year. The twins will be manufactured at Bupyeong in S. Korea. Specifications have not been published for these versions, however, from pictures the duo are almost the same as their Chinese counterparts. GM will continue to sell the older G1UB/C Encore and Trax below (segment-wise) the new entrants.

I've moved Encore GX-related posts to the Chevrolet Trailblazer thread as these two are closely related products.

Now something interesting:

The Trailblazer made in Korea for the domestic market and exports is more or less the same size as the one in China (L: 4410-4425 mm, WB: 2640 mm), whereas the Encore GX made in Korea, which is an export-only model, is actually slightly smaller than the Encore GX made in China.

Korean export version (9BUB)
LxWxH 4354 x 1814 x 1628 mm, WB: 2596 mm.

Chinese version (9BYB)
LxWxH 4463 x 1813 x 1642-1653 mm; WB: 2640 mm.
