GM South America released the all-new 2023 Chevy Montana in Brazil on February 10th, through a special press event that included test drives and a first preview of the new compact pickup for other countries in the region where it will be introduced this year. The automaker confirmed that the 2023 Montana will initially be offered with four distinctive trim levels in Brazilian market.
“The New Montana brings an innovative concept with the potential to extrapolate the very universe formed by the pickup truck audience, a movement similar to what happened with SUVs in the USA,” said GM South America Product Marketing Director, Rodrigo Fioco. “Four versions of Chevrolet’s compact pickup were designed for different profiles, from those looking for versatility in a vehicle with a manual transmission and a more accessible price to those who can’t give up a car with an automatic transmission and a high level of sophistication,” he added.
The company had only announced the 2023 Chevy Montana in range-topping Premier and LTZ trims – which went on pre-sale following the pickup’s official unveiling on December 1st. Now, the range is completed with the entry-level MT and LT versions that come standard with the most advanced technologies, such as six airbags, automatic headlamps and full connectivity with wireless projection for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, on-board Wi-Fi, over-the-air updates and advanced OnStar services.
Cosmetically, each Chevy Montana variant features a distinctive finish. Top trim levels share the same moldings and 17-inch wheels, with a blacked-out finish on the Premier and chrome appliqués on the LTZ. The LT maintains most of the elements of LTZ, but with specific 16-inch wheels and less chrome on its grille, while the MT has no roof bars or bed cover, while being mounted on steel wheels with covers.
The entire 2023 Chevy Montana lineup is powered by a turbocharged 1.2L engine that develops 133 horsepower and 155 pound-feet of torque, mated to one of two transmission options. In the MT and LT trim levels, the engine is paired with a six-speed manual transmission, while the LTZ and Premier versions feature a six-speed automatic. A front-wheel drivetrain is standard on all four trims.
The all-new 2023 Chevy Montana pickup will be available for sale in the Brazilian market starting next week, when the third-generation Montana will officially arrive at the Bow Tie brand’s dealer network. It’s Chevrolet’s most strategic launch this year in that country as it competes for overall sales leadership. Here are the 2023 Montana prices in Brazil:
