The new 2023 Chevrolet S10 Max is ready to return in North America after GM announced many changes to its truck lineup. This entry-level midsize truck will be reportedly only available in Mexico. Interestingly, it is made in China by SAIC, and it shares many design cues with the popular Chevy Colorado. Besides attractive exterior, the new truck will also introduce more modern interior.
As far as we know, some changes are expected under the hood as well, and there should be two available engine options. The base model will reportedly use a naturally-aspirated 2.4-liter engine that should produce around 158 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque. The other choice is optional, and it consists of a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine good for 210 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque.
2023 Chevrolet S10 Max Design
The forthcoming 2023 Chevrolet S10 Max is officially unveiled, and it looks really refreshed. However, it still has the same traditional front fascia but now with a refreshed black grille and more attractive headlights. As for size, this mid-size truck is in the same ballpark as the current Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon.
However, compared to its rival Ford Maverick, it is bigger by inch. Thanks to new official images, we also notice that the rear end comes with the similar taillights we saw on the Colorado. Basically, both models are sharing many cues together.
Modern and Roomy Interior
Inside, the new 2023 Chevrolet S10 Max will be no less modern than its sibling Chevy Colorado. It seems that the new truck will offer more high-quality materials and better technologies. According to the first available image, it should feature a 10-inch multimedia screen compatible with Apple Car Play and Android Auto.
Also, we expect as a standard automatic air conditioning, keyless access, push-start ignition, cruise control, and semi-leather seats. As for safety, Chevy uses six airbags, stability control, parking sensors, and a backup camera.
