As usual, there is a problem.
The Chevrolet S10 is back, but it's not for us. The nameplate will return to Chevrolet Mexico as a low-priced mid-size pickup truck in the Latin American market. This has nothing to do with the Brazilian S10, which re-labeled the Chevrolet Colorado here, but was born in cooperation with the Chinese SAIC Group, which is a partner of General Motors.
The new pickups will be available in regular, chassis and dual-cab versions, and are equipped with 16-inch aluminum wheels and side pedals for easy cargo entry and exit. Higher trim models have an instrument panel, side mirrors and door handles in the same color as the body, instead of black plastic, and spray on the sheets. There is no news about Trail Boss decoration, we heard it is very popular.
"At Chevrolet, we seek new ways to satisfy our customers. With the arrival of the S10 Max pickup, we will provide our customers with comfortable vehicles with the capabilities and performance required for daily work," Chevrolet Marketing Manager Yammil Guaida Said. "The S10 Max formula guarantees an excellent value proposition."
The new mid-size is equipped with a 10-inch touch screen, leather seats, air conditioning, keyless entry and ignition, and smartphone integration. In the version, Chevrolet noticed standard features such as ABS brakes, electronic brake distribution and reversing camera. These features are highly anticipated in the United States and are not even mentioned anymore.
S10 will provide two four-cylinder engines, a turbocharged engine and manual gearbox for you to choose from. They carry 1 ton of cargo, and just like our off-road-centric trucks, some will provide four-wheel drive, locked differential, drive and ramp down modes.
The 2023 Chevrolet S10 will go on sale in Mexico in the second quarter of 2022. Chevrolet said it will come with a variety of catalog accessories to customize and improve performance. Pricing will be announced later, along with more information about the different versions. All we can think of is the mini truck we owned in high school and how we hope to introduce a new low rider S10 for the United States to compete with the custom Ford Maverick.
