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.
