Pictures of the 2011 Chevrolet Orlando show the front end undisguised for the first time. Find out more inside.

A prototype of the 2011 Chevrolet Orlando was caught on camera by trackside spies earlier this week.  For the first time, we get a look at the seven-seater's front end, with much less padding than the last time we saw it.

The front now shows clear similarities with the 2008 Orlando concept, seen at the Paris Motor Show.  The front bumper looks nearly identical from a distance, as does the grille and short hood.  Differences look to include the headlights, which have a more normal shape possibly due to reduced front wheel flares.  Also, foglights are not the same LED strips as on the concept.

Seeing these pictures shot at GM's proving grounds in Michigan should clear up a few questions about the car, which is still moving ahead with development despite U.S. sales being cancelled.  The vehicle is still expected to be sold in Asia and Europe, as well as Canada.
