MotorChase cannot complain of having no friends or loyal readers. Antonio Intini, for example, has already provided us with pictures from the Chevrolet Bolt a while before GM officially introduced it. And he is becoming an expert in GM cars. Or GM cars insisting in passing in front of his camera, since he has now photographed, in Brazil, the new S10 and the new Trailblazer. One after the other. Literally.
The restyled S10 is not really a surprise, since we have already presented a picture of the final pick-up with no disguise about a week ago. If you do not remember it, have a look at the article and also below.
The new pick-up has been photographed in São Bernardo do Campo, São Paulo. The Chevrolet S10 simple cab is 5.37 m long, 1.88 m wide, 1.79 m tall and has a wheelbase of 3.10 m. The double cab is 5.35 m long and 1.82 m tall, preserving the other measures. In Brazil, it is equipped with two flex engines (petrol and ethanol), a 108 kW 2.4 4-cylinder and a 152 kW 2.5 direct injection 4-cylinder, and a 147 kW 2.8 4-cylinder turbodiesel.
The big news is the new Trailblazer, which was right after the S10.
It shows clearly that the S10 pictured with no camo is the real thing for the South American market as well. Even if it is, as we have warned in our first article about it, a right-hand drive pick-up. And the Trailblazer will be just like it. The Australian website CarAdvice has even created a “Photoshopped” image of the SUV. Have a look at it below.
The Trailblazer is 4.88 m long, 1.90 m wide, 1.85 m high and has a wheelbase of 2.85 m. In Brazil, it uses 2 engine options: a 2.8 4-cylinder turbodiesel that generates 147 kW at 3,600 rpm and 500 Nm at 2,000 rpm and a 3.6 V6 that delivers 204 kW at 6,400 rpm and 350 Nm at 3,700 rpm. Both of them rely on a 6-speed automatic transmission.
There is still no word on when the new vehicles will be presented, but they look pretty ready for launch. Expect it to happen in the next few weeks.
