The largest US concern General Motors is working to create a new small pickup truck, which will be designed mainly for the automotive market in South America. Referring to its trusted sources, reports the foreign edition of GM Authority. According to the plans of the concern’s management, the new model will have to be a replacement for the outdated Chevrolet Montana, which has been manufactured since the distant 2003.

Based on the Global Emerging Markets platform from GM engineers, the pickup should compete with Renault Oroch and Fiat Toro, as well as the future pickup from Ford.

The power of the motor is 153 horsepower (the “ceiling” of the torque is 240 Nm). It can be assumed that a 6-speed manual gearbox will be offered as a transmission.
