Almost ten months after the regional debut of the new 2024 Chevy Tracker RS in Brazil, General Motors officially announced the sporty version of Chevrolet‘s subcompact crossover in Argentina.
The automaker is expanding the local range of its best-selling model with the introduction of the new Chevy Tracker RS in Argentina, which has one of two manufacturing centers for the crossover in South America along with Brazil. The 2024 Tracker RS will go on sale in the Argentine market in the first quarter of the year to conquer new customers with bolder and more personalized styling.
“Tracker became the best-selling SUV in Argentina in 2023, and this fills us with enthusiasm. This model is key in our production, export and commercial strategy in Argentina and the region,” said Commercial Director of GM Argentina, Raúl Mier. “And now, we are enriching the range with the Tracker RS, boasting a sporty style in line with Chevrolet’s RS versions, to attract consumers who like a more personal and exclusive vehicle,” he added.
Although it maintains the same exterior design as the other versions, the new Chevy Tracker RS stands out for adopting a front grille with a three-dimensional mesh pattern, a darkened overall finish with gloss black trim, 17-inch gloss black wheels and the distinctive RS badge. For its part, the interior design of this variant adds specific upholstery with red stitching and some elements finished in glossy black.
Under the hood, the Chevy Tracker RS uses the same powertrain found in all trim levels of the crossover in the South American country, which consists of a turbocharged 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine that develops 133 horsepower and 155 pound-feet of torque, mated exclusively to a six-speed automatic transmission. The RS is expected to be positioned as the Tracker’s new range-topping trim in Argentina.
The new 2024 Chevy Tracker RS will be officially launched in Argentina during the first quarter of this year, when it is scheduled to arrive at the Bow Tie brand’s dealer network. Ironically, the Tracker RS units for the country will not be manufactured locally at the GM Alvear plant in the province of Santa Fe, but will arrive imported from the GM São Caetano do Sul plant in Brazil.
