Lightweight pickup Chevrolet Montana was represented in 2011 and it became the first step of General Motors to the "full-size trucks". Chevrolet Colorado is not available in Argentina, Brazil and Mexico, so Montana is the only truck in the middle and low classes.
The novelty is based on the chassis of hatchback Chevrolet Agile, that is also available just in the South American market. The same with Agile it has 1.4-liter engine with a capacity of 97 horses. Because of it Montana consumes only 7.8 liters per 100 kilometers. 4-cylinder engine EcoFlex can operate with both gasoline and ethanol. While using gasoline engine power reaches 97 hp and while using ethanol five more "horses" can be added. The car reaches for 100 km / h for 12.1 seconds and its top speed is170 km / h. According to plans of the company, Argentina will be offered with a more powerful 1.8-liter engine
Of course, this pickup has an integral body, but because of the strengthened rear suspension it can be loaded with 760 pounds. This is really worthy figure! One more advantage of the car is a great ground clearance. For example, in hatchback Agile it equal to 180 millimeters but Montana has increased this figure with few inches.
As a result, "sitting" of pickup is higher than in many cars that are positioned as a crossover. However, the full drive for "Montana" so far ... is not provided.
The length of the pickup is 4510 mm, width is 1700 mm and height is 1580 mm. Chevrolet Montana is offered in two complete sets: LS and Sport. LS is targeted for everyday use and Sport is more intended for outdoor activities.
Body volume of pick-up is 1180 liters. The interior of the Montana is clearly divided to the driver and passenger area; it offers plenty of legroom and a lot of compartments for storing various items.
The main consumer of this car is youth. Farmers and businessmen would rather choose more practical van. Chevrolet Montana is designed in a stylish-teenager spirit of modern models of Chevrolet, and it is aimed exactly on young consumers.
