The upcoming 2023 Chevrolet S10 Max is poised to return to North America, following GM’s announcement of several revisions to its truck portfolio. According to reports, this mid-size pickup will only be sold in Mexico. Surprisingly, it is manufactured in China and shares many design similarities with the iconic Chevrolet Colorado truck. Aside from an appealing design, the new S10 Max will also feature a more modern cabin.
Reportedly, some improvements are also expected under the hood, and two engine options should be offered. The base model will apparently be powered by a 2.4-liter engine, while the 2.0-liter engine with a turbocharger will be optional.
Chevrolet S10 Max Exterior Design
The new 2023 Chevrolet S10 Max has been officially introduced, and it looks fantastic. It retains the same classic front fascia, but with a new black front grille and more appealing headlights. In terms of dimensions, this mid-size pickup is comparable to the modern Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon models.
Furthermore, S10 Max is just slightly longer than the compact Ford Maverick. Thanks to new official photographs, we can also see that the rear end has the same taillights as Colorado. Essentially, both models share a lot of exterior elements.
The forthcoming 2023 Chevrolet S10 Max will be just as modern on the inside Colorado model. The new truck appears to have higher-quality materials and very modern technologies. According to the first image, it will have a 10-inch infotainment screen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay phone integrations.
We also anticipate automatic air conditioning, push-button start, and keyless entry. Furthermore, leather seats will be optional. The S10 Max model will provide a high level of safety. It will include a backup camera, along with numerous driver-assistance aids, where some of which will be available as standard.
In terms of performance, the new 2023 Chevrolet S10 Max will deploy two engine options. A base engine is a 2.4-liter unit with 158 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque. If you want more power, a 2.0-liter engine with a turbocharger is available. Reportedly, this engine will develop around 210 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Both engines will use a manual gearbox. However, the standard option comes with a five-speed transmission, while the optional powertrain comes with a six-speed transmission.
Some reports are saying that an eight-speed automatic transmission will be available as an option. On top of that, a 4×4 system will be optional as well. We don’t know if a diesel powertrain will be on offer. On the other hand, hybrid is not an option. Chevrolet will reveal more details in the coming months, including the truck’s towing capacity and more.
2023 Chevrolet S10 Max Release Date, Price
The price of the 2023 Chevrolet S10 Max should start at $20,000 or slightly above that. For the same price, you can also get Ford Maverick, a compact pickup that offers a hybrid powertrain. Anyway, S10 Max should represent a strong option in the segment. The sales will begin in Mexico, in the last quarter of the year.
