The 2024 Chevy Montana is General Motors’ vision of a compact pickup truck. It was originally produced from 2003 to 2021. But it was discontinued because of low interest and sales. Previously known as Nova Montana in 2023, he gets a new, shorter name. From now on, Nova Montana becomes just Montana. Also, from 2023 on, the interior and exterior get a new, more modern redesign to attract new customers. There is a possibility that the 2024 version will also be made available in the USA, as it is mostly made for South American customers.

With a starting price of around $23,000, it will be the main challenger for the Ford Maverick and Hyundai Santa Cruz. Montana is a four-door small pickup with front-wheel drive.
