Those of us residing the U.S. remember the Chevrolet S10 fondly as the go-to midsize pickup many years ago. In Argentina, the name lives on and is synonymous with traits found in the global Chevrolet Colorado. But, Chevrolet Argentina has officially launched the 2015 S10 High Country, marking the first time the nameplate will be offered.
As Chevrolet states, the High Country name runs parallel with some of the most luxurious features found in a truck. In Argentina, the 2015 S10 High Country receives more than a few upgrades to be worthy of the nameplate.
Dark-chrome wheels and LED taillights gussy up the exterior accordingly, and set the High Country apart from other road-going S10 trucks. The interior is where things really shape up, though. Chevrolet says Brownstone two-tone stitched upholstery is awash, and glossy-black interior pieces make for a pleasing contrast inside. Technology sits in all the right places, too. Chevrolet MyLink comes coupled with the seven-inch touchscreen unit, complete with Bluetooth and an auxiliary-in port.
Safety wasn’t an afterthought for the Argentinian market either, as a rear-view camera is included with the 2015 S10 High Country, plus dual airbags, ABS brakes, stability control and much more.
No matter which cab configuration chosen, a 2.8-liter Duramax diesel engine will power the 2015 S10 High Country, delivering 200 hp and 368 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to a manual transmission, but those opting for the 4×4 will receive a six-speed automatic for shifting duties.
The 2015 Chevrolet S10 High Country will start at $449,100 Argentinian, or $49,500 USD.
