chevrolet axes slow selling orlando in canada

The Canadian-market Chevrolet Orlando is dead, according to sales analyst Timothy Cain. Thanks to some sleuthing, Cain discovered that GM Canada quietly killed off the Orlando for 2015.

The Orlando never managed to make a dent in the Canada small minivan market, despite being the right car for Canadian market and road conditions. More than likely, the sub-$20,000 Dodge Caravan Canada Value Package stole away customers who wanted an affordable minivan that can haul a couple of kids and their hockey bags. The success of the Caravan has always been a thorn in the side of other small vans like the Mazda5 and Kia Rondo.

    Plenty of metric engine sizes here for years, as in 3.8l = 225 cubic inches (same as the old Mopar Slant Six).

      @Numbers_Matching Thx for the correction. FWIW, back in the Ford Administration, when the failed push to completely metricize the USA was on, one rule of thumb was 1l = 60 cubic inches. So 3.8 X 60 = 228 cubes. And my 2.4l 'Nox is 144 inches. And those stingy inches generate 184 HP - way more than one horse per inch, something only old muscle cars could do, back then. And on half the gas.

    Twenty-three posts that were nothing more than a standard vs. metric pissing match. Thank goodness for scroll wheels.

    No sliding doors ==> not a minivan.

    Chevy Orlando; almost sounds like a car built specially to be a rental for your Disney vacation. Maybe Chevy could give cars some really Canadian sounding names, like Frontenac, or Gordon.
