Last week, General Motors Design shocked its Instagram followers with a scary design for how they think a future off-roader might look like. Imagine a random design sketch having the ability to make waves amongst GM fans. Chill out everyone, it might not make it to the production. Still, someone might take some notes – the sketch has some beautiful elements.
Chunky tires, a skid plate, and ground clearance, even a presumably electric off-roader running on anti-material it brings along, truck-like bed. A previous attempt to give us a glimpse at their intention of a wild off-roader was in 2018, when the company trademarked a 'Find New Roads' name as the future concept car. The post shows that GM's designers have no limits at all when it comes to giving everyone a crazy concept.
The sketch shows a section of the car with its headlights placed separately from the rest of the car’s body with a glasshouse above the actuators below the glasshouse connected to the front axle to help the driver in surmounting large obstacles. There could be an intake system behind the car.
This off-roader is presented as a four-seater, with windows made of translucent, composite plastic. Even if there’s one angle without any further details reveals, it’s enough to get the GM’s idea of GM idea of a crazy off-roader. What do you think about it – would you like to drive it or prefer to keep it as a poster sketch on your wall?
