GM Korea said on March 28 that two US-made vehicles will be added to its lineup to boost sales.
The carmaker plans to launch the large Traverse SUV and the midsize Colorado pickup truck in the Korean market in the third quarter, the company said in a statement.
“They will take us into new segments where we have never competed and will reach out to a new group of customers for the brand,” GM Korea President and CEO Kaher Kazem said.
The Traverse is powered by a 3.6-liter V-6 direct injection gasoline engine mated to a nine-speed Hydra-Matic automatic transmission. It puts out a robust 310 horsepower and 36.8 kilogram-force meters of torque based on North American standards, the carmaker said.
The Colorado is equipped with a 3.6-liter V-6 gasoline engine that produces 312 horsepower and 38.2 kilogram-force meters of torque. It comes with an eight-speed Hydra-Matic automatic transmission, it said.
