Almost four months after its international debut in Brazil, and after being launched in some South American countries under the Colorado nameplate, General Motors has just introduced the refreshed 2021 Chevy S10 in Argentina – the second largest market in the region. The second comprehensive update to the third-generation S10 reaches the Argentine market with more safety and connectivity features than any other midsize pickup on sale in the country.
In fact, although the 2021 Chevy S10 integrates notable improvements in design, convenience and performance, GM Argentina is positioning it as the most technological and connected pickup on the market. In this sense, the 2021 S10 joins Chevrolet‘s family of connected models in the South American country, as the first in its segment with an on-board 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot as well as wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration.
“The evolution of the S10 is intended for users who spend a lot of time in the vehicle, for whom the trip is as important as the destination,” said Marketing Executive Director of GM South America, Hermann Mahnke, in a statement. “That’s why the S10’s refresh focuses on equipment and solutions that are really useful in the day to day, making it the most connected pickup on the market,” he added.
The 2021 Chevy S10 continues to offer Single Cab and Crew Cab bodies, as well as the same four trim levels: LS, LT, LTZ and High Country. All come standard with the 200-horsepower, Duramax turbo-diesel 2.8L XLD28 inline-four engine, who torque ranges from 325 pound-feet on models with the six-speed manual transmission to 369 pound-feet with six-speed automatic transmission. It’s the only truck in its segment that offers the most powerful engine on all trim levels.
In addition to class-leading technology features, the 2021 Chevy S10 also stands out for its advanced safety features. All versions now include six standard airbags, traction and electronic stability control, hill descent control and hill start assist. From the LTZ trim onwards, Automatic Braking, Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning are also included.
The 2021 Chevy S10 is now on sale throughout the entire dealership network in Argentina. The lineup includes a total of nine variants, classified by body, trim level, transmission as well as rear-wheel and four-wheel drivetrains. The range-topping 2021 S10 High Country has a unique front-end design and exterior accessories that set it apart from the rest. The S10 is covered by a three-year/100,000-kilometer warranty and is available with a choice of six paint colors.
