FACELIFTS FOR CHEV UTE
Chevrolet has updated its bakkie with two limited editions — the UteWorking and the Surf.
Only 200 of the UteWorking models will be built, all with a cab protector around the rear window and a rubberised load box. A tuner/CD is now standard.
Aimed at the other extreme of the Ute buyers profile is the Utesurf, which comes with a tubular stainless steel sport bar and a roof rack/spoiler combination which makes it simpler and safer to carry lifestyle accessories.
Only 400 of the Utesurf models will be built, each with five-spoke alloy wheels with a tuner/CD and air conditioning as standard.
The bakkies are sold with either Chev’s proven 1,4 petrol engine that develops 132 Nm at 3 200 rpm, or its punchy 1.8 (77 kW/161 Nm). We recommend the 1,4 as the more frugal.
The prices include a 5-year/120 000 km warranty and a 5-year/unlimited mileage anti-corrosion warranty. — WR.
