New 2023 Chevrolet Montana is coming to the dealerships. The first-gen Montana lasted between 2003 and 2010. The second-gen model has arrived next year in Mexico, under the name Tornado. Now, Montana will make its return in the United States as the new-gen model. Chevy plans to offer both two-door and four-door variants.
So far, a couple of renderings are available, but that’s it. The manufacturer is refusing to provide further details. On the other hand, it is easy to predict Montana’s powertrain options and some different categories. Moreover, Chevy will offer Montana in South and Central America next year.
