General Motors plans on giving attendees of Auto Shanghai a crossover-themed enema later this month. Buick will introduce the second-generation Encore, as well as its larger GX variant, while Chevrolet focuses on the 2020 Trailblazer and Tracker.

While both models have vanished in the United States, replaced with the more tersely named Traverse and Trax, the Trailblazer and Tracker persist in Asia, Australia, and parts of South America. GM plans on debuting new editions of the pair in Shanghai on April 16th and has issued a teaser image (above) as a reminder — just like it did with the Encore. 

These corporate announcements rarely include technical details, but industrial leaks hint that the Tracker will be larger than the model it replaces, albeit with a slightly lower roofline. Considering the vehicle in question is the global equivalent of the North American Trax, don’t expect anything massive. We’ve heard power will come from a turbocharged 3-cylinder engine rumored to be substantially smaller than the base 1.4-liter that’s currently available in Asia, with larger options to follow.

The Trailblazer is more of a mystery. We can be certain it will be larger than the Tracker/Trax/Encore, but that’s about all we’re certain of at this point.

All General Motors is willing to say was that both models will utilize the company’s latest propulsion, intelligent connectivity and safety technologies, and will focus on appealing to younger drivers. Both vehicles appear later this month at the Shanghai Auto Show.

    The Trailblazer is a body-on-frame vehicle built on the Colorado platform, isn’t it, rather than a crossover?

    Trailblazer competes with Ford Everest. Everest is body on frame SUV. It is based on the Ranger.
    Rugged, off road capable SUV’s won’t sell here. Shhhh, don’t tell Jeep.

    The first sentence reads “General Motors plans on giving attendees of Auto Shanghai a crossover-themed enema later this month.”

    What exactly does a crossover-themed enema entail? Flood the market with crossovers, but in the end all that comes out is crap?
