The Chevy S10 has been offered since 1981, with GM marketing the international pickup primarily across the Americas. Notably, the 2025 Chevy S10 was originally expected to receive a full-generational overhaul similar to the new 2023 Chevy Colorado, but GM Authority since has learned that although the pickup will be updated, the new Chevy S10 won’t be “all-new.” Now, the refreshed 2025 Chevy S10 has been spied testing as a camouflaged prototype in the following exclusive GM Authority spy photos.
This 2025 Chevy S10 prototype can be seen wearing heavy black vinyl that obscures the updated front-end design, with the body panels underneath appearing as though they are covered in black-and-white, body-hugging camo. Further details include what appears to be placeholder headlights mounted high in the upper corners of the fascia. Additional styling tweaks will be added to the rear end, including new stamping on the rear fender panels to bring the pickup in line with Chevy’s latest styling language, plus new designs for the alloy wheels.
Further changes will be found in the cabin, where the 2025 Chevy S10 is expected to get a full overhaul with the upcoming 2025 model year. This will include a similar dash design and similar tech features as the all-new, third-generation Chevy Colorado, with the infotainment layout, trim panel, and digital driver instrument cluster all providing inspiration for the new S10.
As GM Authority covered previously, the 2025 Chevy S10 won’t present an all-new body, and indeed, the prototype shown above presents a somewhat familiar cabin and roof rail layout. The underlying platform will also get carried over from the current model.
As for the powertrain, the 2025 Chevy S10 is expected to cradle an updated version of the 2.8L I4 XLD28 turbodiesel Duramax engine, with the refresh bringing with it new engine output numbers. Expect the refreshed 2025 Chevy S10 to debut in Brazil early next year.
