The German based automaker Opel has officially announced its plans to build a new flagship SUV by the end of this decade.

Opel is getting ready to upgrade its model lineup with the addition of a brand new vehicle. This will be a an SUV which will sit alongside the Insignia, as the company has recently announced.

“During her second visit to Germany this year, Mary Barra, Chief Executive Officer of General Motors, announced additional considerable investments. Barra confirmed that a new model will be produced at Opel’s traditional headquarters in Rüsselsheim by the end of the decade”, is said in the company’s official press release.

The premium crossover, which is currently known internally as the Monza, is said to share the same engine lineup with the next generation Insignia and chances are it will also ride on the same platform in order to lower the production costs. Little else is known about the model in question at the moment except the fact that it will be produced at the Russelsheim plant, by the end of this decade. More details on the new Opel flagship SUV are limited at this time but do expect a concept version which will preview it in the near future.
