2010 GMC Granite Concept

Sunday, February 27, 2011

The GMC Granite Concept is powered by a 1.4-liter turbocharged four cylinder that produces 138 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque. In the concept, the engine is paired up with a six-speed automatic transmission. The GMC Granite Concept rides on large 20-inch wheels.

The GMC Granite Concept is 103.6-inch wheelbase, and is 70.3 inches wide and 60.5 inches tall. The GMC Granite Concept comes with a flexible interior, which has ample cargo room and flip-folding seats that move out of the way for mountain bikes and other weekend gear. Unlike the Element’s flip-fold rear seats, the Granite’s right-side seats fold toward the center to create a long storage area. For entertainment, the Granite’s red-backlit LED display controls personal electronics, and the center console has ports to recharge and link devices like iPhones and Blackberrys–along with a slot sized to store a laptop computer.
