Upcoming 2022 Chevy S10 Z71 Spotted Undisguised In Brazil24
At the end of August, General Motors officially announced the arrival of the new Chevy S10 Z71 in Brazil, as exclusively reported by GM Authority three months before the automaker’s statement. Now, the new 2022 Chevy S10 Z71 has just been captured undisguised a couple of weeks before its official reveal in the South American country.
The local magazine Quatro Rodas captured the upcoming 2022 Chevy S10 Z71 for the first time without any camouflage in the city of Rio Grande do Sul, during the production of advertising material for the new off-road version that will expand the midsize pickup’s range in Brazil and other South American countries. Until now, the vehicle had only been announced with a teaser image, as one of four launches that Chevrolet will planning in the country through the remainder of 2021.
As such, the first real-world photos show that the 2022 Chevy S10 Z71 will arrive with a unique and more adventurous appearance that sets it apart from any other version of the model. Aesthetically, the upcoming Z71 adopts the same front grille introduced by the latest refresh of the High Country variant with the embossed CHEVROLET lettering, while replacing the gold Bow Tie with a Z71 emblem.
However, the 2022 Chevy S10 Z71’s unique exterior styling includes a darkened overall finish that encompasses the headlight clusters, wheels, air vents, mirror caps, bumpers, door handles and roof bars. At the same time, the off-road-focused version will have a set of specific decals around the body, plastic fender protectors, side steps and a sport bar.
Aside from the visual changes and being the only trim level to feature the black Bow Tie logo, it’s still unclear if the 2022 Chevy S10 Z71 will have a higher suspension setting. This is the first time that the Brazilian-made Chevy S10 will be adopting a Z71 off-road variant in its more than 26-year history, and it’s the vehicle chosen by GM to introduce this iconic Chevrolet trim level in Brazil.
The new 2022 Chevy S10 Z71 will be officially revealed next Tuesday, October 26, during a special event in Brazil, where it is manufactured at the São José dos Campos plant to supply the local and regional market. Although it isn’t a too radical or revolutionary new version, the 2022 S10 Z71 will undoubtedly be an important launch for the Bow Tie brand given the very high demand for custom pickups in the Brazilian market.

Looks like a little Honda toy truck .
don’t like it
I agree with you. It definitely doesn’t look like a Chevy truck or a S10
ladies and Gentlemen.. I give to you the S10 Pilot…I mean Z71??
It looks like a Honda truck with Chevy badging on it.
One pic shows a beafy looking truck. Another shows it looking like a toy Honda. Gross. No thanks.
Hello Chevy Sport Trax z71?
Looks fugly you should be ashamed my 89 s10 looks better than that pos.
My kid has drawn a picture of a car with crayons that looked more appealing than that hunk of shit you call a S10. The new blazer was an extremely failed attempt also. As much as I hate to say it I’d probably buy a new Ford over the new hideous GM vehicles.
I agree with all above comments.
Looks luke honda. And a ford explorer
Correct me if I am wrong but didn’t the Holden Division have a truck like this before Honda or Ford?
Indeed J, explain the project to you… It is the Chevy Colorado of Warren, but Holden in 2019 made a face lift in the USA Version, then GM killed Holden Australia, and not to loose the brand new tooling for Australia in fascia, they sent to S. Caetano do Sul Brasil to be produced as a new vehicle. Meantime USA made another Fascia for Colorado US Market, so the unique car is selling from GMB in Brasil is this, and Holden does not exist anymore. It is how GM makes money, but it is just some plastic differences on grille an lights. It is a mid size pick up loved in Brazil guys.
Looks between a new Ford Ranger and a Honda Pilot. WHATS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE… Copycats….
GM should be ashamed
What a disgrace what has happened to GM’s values
This truck looks nothing like an S10! Least you could do is make it look like a miniature Sierra or something! This truck doesn’t even deserve the S10 name tag! Why bother calling it an S10 if it doesn’t even resemble it in any way?
Well, it is an S10, it’s not a full size truck 😂
I kinda dig it!
How do I get one up here in Canada?!?
Yes. Buy a Colorado. It’s the same truck.
Looks like a Honda Ridgeline was in the process of throwing up when it was rear-ended by a Ford Ranger and together they produced the ugliest product of a night getting crap faced. Nice though!
Well it looks like a Chevy Colorado and a Chevy Silverado with S10 badges
I feel the need to state this yet again. It’s the same truck as the US Market Colorado and Canyon.
I hope the truck doesn’t have the 8speed transmissions that GM refuses to fix in Colorado’s trucks, even when the Colorado truck still have warranty. I’m still waiting for GM to come good with the warranty for the 8speed transmission I have. So NO THANKS !!!!.
