Earlier this year, General Motors announced the resumption of its 2020-2024 manufacturing investment plan in Brazil and recently confirmed that it’s working on the next-generation Chevy Montana compact pickup. Now, the automaker has just announced a preview of the next four Chevrolet model launches scheduled before year’s end in the South American country.
The company revealed that it will unveil four new Chevrolet products in Brazil starting in September, when it will introduce its 2022 model-year vehicles, aiming to strengthen the brand’s presence in several key segments. The product strategy for the Brazilian market includes the launch of a new Chevrolet model in each of the last four months of 2021.
“Chevrolet is preparing a major offensive in the second half, which includes innovations in the most strategic and promising market segments,” said General Motors South America President, Carlos Zarlenga, in an official statement. “We are going to have reveals once a month starting in September,” he added.
Although General Motors didn’t indicate what Chevrolet will soon be launching in Brazil, the manufacturer did show a darkened teaser image with the front view of four models, revealing a fairly clear idea of the vehicles involved. The shape and lighting pattern hints at the 2022 Chevy Bolt EV, the refreshed 2022 Chevy Equinox as well as new versions of the Chevy S10 pickup and the Chevy Cruze.
GM Authority recently reported that General Motors South America is working on an upcoming Z71 off-road variant of the current third-generation Chevy S10, and that the refreshed 2022 Chevy Bolt EV was undergoing testing in Brazil. Although we haven’t received information regarding an upcoming new variant of the Chevy Cruze, we believe that this could be the sporty RS or a special variant such as the Midnight Edition.
General Motors said the new products for the Brazilian market are focused on audiences with different needs and will also innovate by incorporating new technologies for Chevrolet, enhancing the Bow Tie brand’s portfolio in the country. The next four Chevrolet launches in Brazil will be officially revealed one by one through a web series sponsored by the brand.
