New Test Track Ride Vehicle Debuts!

With the rumors of a HUGE, multi-month refurbishment of Test Track at Epcot coming in 2012, we have been hopeful that some significant upgrades would be made to the ride next year. Well, we may not have to wait that long…

These photos were taken earlier today by twitter user shawnathon33. This new Test Track vehicle is very similar to the original in shape, but it looks like GM is trying to get some publicity for more of their brands, illustrated by the Chevy logo on the front of the car (painted on, not articulated). The new car also has a very different paint scheme than the original, but we expect each vehicle to have a different color palate. While pure speculation at this point, I would expect to see other GM brand logos on the front of other vehicles (Buick, GMC, etc.). This new vehicle confirms that General Motors will be staying on as the sponsor of the pavilion. We will have more on this breaking story as it becomes available, so stay tuned!
