More than five years ago the GMC Granite concept was presented to the world as a subcompact SUV, and later it took the form of a small pickup with side-access load doors. The Granite is finally taking its next step towards production as GM has filed a trademark application for the nameplate.

Given the success of the Buick Encore and the Chevy Trax, as well as the fact that one's sales have not really affected the other's, the GMC Granite may have become a higher priority. It seems that automakers find it pretty hard to go wrong with vehicles in the CUV segment these days.

The Granite will likely be a rebadged version of the Encore.

The concept is quite out there which makes me curious how it'll end up looking, if it'll be an encore shell with this face and rear or not.

This could also be on of those GM products we see an Apple or Android OS in.

Its a bit odd that they've chosen now to explore a GMC option, odd in the sense that Encore and TRAX are nearing the end of their design cycle. Unless they're looking at the GMC for after the update??

Might be due to competition from other brands, GM now isn't the only one in the ring. Now they want to up their efforts now that it's need more than ever.
