The Chevrolet Montana is a coupé utility sold by Chevrolet in Latin America and emerging markets. In Mexico the vehicle is known as Chevrolet Tornado because of Pontiac using the Montana name for its minivan offering there. The design of the first generation is a variation of the Opel Corsa, essentially a pickup version of the Opel Combo, while the second generation is based on the Chevrolet Agile.

First generation (2003–2010)Edit

2003 Chevrolet Montana

The Montana comes standard with a 1.4 l "Ecoflex" and a 1.8 l 8V flex-fuel I4 engines. In some markets like South Africa where it was sold as the Opel Corsa Utility until June 2010, the vehicle is offered with more engine options, but none flex-fuel, like the 1.4 petrol and the 1.7 Isuzu turbodiesel. As of 2007, Montana is available in 2 versions: Montana Conquest and Montana Sport which has a slightly different design and set of accessories. The trunk can be loaded with up to Template:Convert/kg according to the manufacturer.

This model is currently manufactured in São José dos Campos, Brazil. In South Africa it is assembled from Brazilian-supplied CKD units.


The Montana arrived in the 2004 model year replacing the aged Corsa B based Chevy Pickup, but with the Tornado name tag because the Pontiac Montana was available in Mexico at the time. It was based on the Chevrolet Corsa C and although the Corsa was dropped from the Mexican Chevrolet line-up after the 2008 model year, the Tornado lived on for a few more years. It was the only Brazilian-built car in the Mexican Chevrolet lineup.

South AfricaEdit

The second generation Corsa utility was released in 2003 and replaced the Corsa B Utility pickup. The vehicle was sold as the Opel Corsa Utility, until June 2010. From then on it was badged as the Chevrolet Corsa Utility but not for to long as Chevrolet had prepared to end this and also to stop representing Opel. It is available in a choice of 3 engine variations, namely 1.4 and 1.8 petrol engines, as well as a 1.7 turbodiesel. There are also three different trim levels available across the range: Base, Club and Sport.

Second generation (2010–present)Edit

Despite short sales of the Chevrolet Corsa Utility in South Africa Chevrolet had decided to replace the Corsa C based ute with the Agile ute called Montana and Tornado and Utility. For the first time in the Chevy South Africa's history the Corsa name had been dropped and the Chevrolet Corsa Utility had become the Chevrolet Utility this brought sales of Opels badged as Chevrolets in South Africa to an end and was a practice used by Chevrolet since 2008 in Mexico. During 2010 the Chevrolet Corsa G1 ceased to exist and the Chevrolet Corsa Classic became known as the Chevrolet Classic and Chinas Chevrolet Sail MK1 took over but the 3-door and 5-door hatchbacks were succeeded by the Celta which was already based on the Corsa G1.
