The Chevy Montana is a small pickup truck offered in South America and Mexico, as well as some other foreign markets. One of the biggest features of the next-gen 2023 Montana, which debuted on December 1st, 2022 and began production earlier this week, is a new cargo bed with a bevy of storage solutions.
Dubbed the Multi-Flex cargo bed, this innovative feature is designed to function as a regular pickup cargo bed, but also as a giant 874-liter (31 cubic-foot) trunk. Featuring an advanced sealing system that provides superb water protection, this trunk is also available with an extensive line of customized accessories to provide hundreds of solutions for cargo transportation.
One of the more notable additions is the multi-board dividers, which serve to wall off certain areas of the truck bed from others. Consisting of two rails, a shelf, and a board, these dividers allow owners plenty of flexibility in loading, storing and hauling items in the rear of the truck.
As a reminder, GM officially unveiled the 2023 Chevy Montana last December during a special broadcast on the Chevrolet Brazil YouTube channel. Designed to compete primarily in the South American market, the all-new Montana will serve as Chevy’s first compact unibody pickup. Riding on an extended variant of the GM GEM platform, the 2023 Montana meshes together a crew cab body configuration with a Chevy Blazer-inspired exterior design. Meanwhile, production of the all-new Montana takes place at the GM São Caetano do Sul plant.
Under the hood, the 2023 Montana is equipped as standard with a custom-calibrated 1.2L turbocharged engine, rated at 133 horsepower and 155 pound-feet of torque. As for transmission options, prospective buyers can choose from either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission. A front-wheel drivetrain will be the only layout available.
