The Chevrolet Montana is a coupe utility sold by Chevrolet in Latin America and emerging markets. The design is a variation of the Opel Corsa. In Mexico the vehicle is known as Chevrolet Tornado because of Pontiac using the name for its minivan offering there. 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 735 kg (1,620 lb) according to the manufacturer.[1]

This model is currently manufactured in São José dos Campos, Brazil. In Mexico and South Africa it is assembled with Brazilian 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 is available in this country.This small pickup its the most popular and the most attractive of its segment. Its based on the Corsa C; and although the Corsa was dropped of the Mexican Chevrolet lineup after the 2008 model year the Tornado will live for a few more years. This is now the only Brazilian built car in the Mexican Chevrolet lineup still available.

South Africa

The 2nd generation Corsa utility was released in 2003 and replaced the Corsa B Utility pickup. It is available in a choice of 3 engine variations, namely 1.4 and 1.8 petrol engines as well as a 1.7 Turbo Diesel. There are also 3 different trim levels available across the range being: Base, Club and Sport.
