The 2023 Chevrolet Montana is a new compact four-door pickup, expected to come in the second half of 2022. The Montana model will arrive as a brand-new model. This vehicle has been around since 2003, and the third generation could become the most popular truck on the market. Of course, this sector is saturated with numerous competitors, and we’re interested to see how the new Montana compares to compact pickups such as Hyundai Santa Cruz and Ford Maverick.
According to the information we have, the upcoming truck will be based on the popular Chevrolet Blazer SUV and will most likely use the same engines. There are two engines available under the hood of the modern Blazer, a 1.2-liter and 1.3-liter output. Here’s everything we know about the new Montana model so far.
Chevrolet Montana Spy Shots
We saw the first spy pictures of the next 2023 Chevrolet Montana. We must say that the visual upgrades are very interesting. First and foremost, we noticed that Montana shares stylistic cues with the recently released Chevrolet Blazer model. According to certain sources, the new pickup will be based on the same architecture as the Blazer model.
It will also be the first compact unibody pickup truck made by Chevy. The observed prototype’s front face is dominated by a huge grille and thinner LED headlights. Like the hood, the side profile also looks incredibly sporty. We also noted on a tailgate with a standard opening and taillights that are identical to those on the Blazer SUV.
The approaching 2023 Chevrolet Montana has only been seen from the outside, so no interior images are available at this moment. However, we anticipate that this pickup, like the Blazer SUV, will be very modern and spacious. It will undoubtedly have the same seating arrangement, although certain upgrades are also likely. The seats will undoubtedly be more comfortable, especially in higher trim levels.
The higher-end models will have more standard and optional features, including leather upholstery, larger display, and numerous driver-assistance aids. Many people believe the Chevrolet Montana will get a new 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster as well as a 10.8-inch head-up display (HUD).
Under the hood, the new 2023 Chevrolet Montana will have two powertrain options. Again, Montana pickup will borrow Blazer’s engine lineup. Everything starts with a 1.2-liter three-cylinder unit. This gasoline engine will produce 138 hp, although Montana could provide slightly more than that.
The standard engine option comes with a standard CVT automatic transmission and FWD system. On top of that, an optional 1.3-liter four-cylinder engine will develop up to 155 horsepower. This unit will use a 9-speed automatic transmission, and an AWD system will be available as an option.
2023 Chevrolet Montana Release Date, Price
From what we know, the new 2023 Chevrolet Montana will go on sale later in 2022. Before that, we expect to see official images and we can’t wait to see the latest cosmetic upgrades. However, we don’t expect many surprises, as all of the novelties are already present on the Chevrolet Blazer SUV. The price will start at around $20,000 and Montana will rival compact pickups such as Ford Maverick and Hyundai Santa Cruz.
