While bearing the same name as a state in the Western U.S., the 2023 Chevrolet Montana isn’t destined to launch in the country.
Chevy has decided to produce it in Brazil following its reveal there, before releasing it to South America. The all-new double-decker truck is said to be aimed at other emerging markets as well.
If you fancy a compact pickup that is a bit shorter than the Ford Maverick, you will surely love the Montana. It sits on a unibody platform that is also used by a number of small cars.
Under its hood lies a 1.2-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine pumping out 133 hp and 155 lb-ft of torque, all of which are transferred to front wheels via a front-wheel-drive system.
Transmission is available in two options, which can be selected according to customer needs: six-speed manual is good for truckers who want maximum acceleration, while automatic transmission is best for drivers who prefer low fuel consumption.
The impressive part of this truck is its unique feature, namely the novel Multi-Flex cargo bed designed to be a large 874-liter trunk. It offers a top-class waterproofing cover and a wide range of accessories that can provide various cargo solutions.
As the first mini unibody truck in Chevy‘s portfolio, the Montana will be built at the São Caetano do Sul manufacturing facility. In other words, its main target market is Brazil, although it will also hit other countries in the American continent.
Chevy has kicked off the pre-sales of the all-new 2023 Montana, which will arrive at the large network of Chevrolet dealerships in Brazil next February.
