Chevrolet is near the due point of the 2022 S10 release to the market. But it seems there is a problem for this car in Brazilian market. The Brazilian version faced the microchip shortage. On the other hand, this company doesn’t have no intention to release a car in to the market with imperfection.
As it is reported, General motors would resume the production in São José dos Campos assembly plant in May, just in the time we expect the arrival to the dealership. In compare with the 2021, the new model has some advantages, which one of them is two option on the chassis can and three body styles. The single cab on the 2021 cots now $34,900 and the double cab, $35,315.
The other specification would vary from one model to other. The LT slots bang in the middle while the LTZ and High-Country top the range. Six colors would be selected for the exterior. Eclipse Blue, Topaz Gray, Berry Red, Black Gold, Switchblade Silver, and Summit White. The engine options are also a flex-fuel gasoline engine or a 2.8-liter turbo diesel.
By choosing the flex-fuel gasoline engine, what you have, is a four-cylinder base motor with 206 hp at 6,000 RPM and 268 NM of torque at 4,400 RPM. Meanwhile, the other engine can be compared with Duramax of the U.S. variant, which produces 197 hp and 500 Nm of torque. On the S10 whether rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive can be chosen. Also, the six-speed manual gearbox can be upgraded with an automatic model.
Rodrigo Fioco, the director of product marketing at General Motors do Brazil believes:
“mainly for the better-equipped versions that exceed more than half of sales. This shows that - in addition to reliability, robustness, and power - pickup truck customers are looking for the highest level of security and connectivity.”
