The regional Chevrolet Tracker RS will be introduced this year.

MARCH 14, 2023

The Rally Sport version will have aesthetic changes for a sporty look, without structural modifications and with the 132 hp 1.2 turbo-naphtha engine. General Motors is moving forward in South America with the development of the Chevrolet Tracker RS; that is, the sporty-looking version of the compact SUV (segment B). According to the Brazilian portal Autos Segredos (see here), it will be presented before the end of the first half of 2023. The Chevrolet Tracker will be the third regional model to introduce a Rally Sport variant to the range, after Cruze (see here) and Onix (see here). Like them, it will have no engine or suspension tweaks. The Chevolet Rally Sport are conventional models with aesthetic changes for a sporty look, but without structural modifications. Those that do are the SS (Super Sport) which, in addition to the visual tweaks, have mechanical improvements for superior performance. Thus, the South American Tracker RS will follow the styling of its Chinese counterpart (photos) and will feature a honeycomb grille in black, blacked-out alloy wheels, piano black mirror housings, a redesigned rear bumper and blacked-out taillights. Under the hood it will keep the 1.2-liter turbo-naphtha three-cylinder engine offered by the rest of the range (see here). It produces 132 hp of power and 190 Nm of maximum torque from 2,000 rpm. It will have front-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission. The arrival of the Tracker RS in Argentina has not been confirmed. It is not yet known in which country it will be produced and that is a key point. If Chevrolet manufactures it in General Alvear, along with the rest of the versions, it would be a fact that it will be sold in Argentine dealerships. If it is made in Brazil, where it is still manufactured for the Brazilian domestic market, it will depend on import quotas. For the time being, four versions are currently sold in Argentine dealerships: Tracker MT ($6,018,900), Tracker AT ($6,132,900), Tracker LTZ ($6,219,900) and Tracker Premier ($8,329,900). The first three have almost the same price because they are capped so as not to be officially reached by the automobile tax, although in dealerships they are sold for higher values. Since it began production in Argentina in 2022, the Tracker has become the best-selling compact SUV in the local market (see here). It takes advantage of the good production volume to offer stock and takes advantage over its competitors, all of them imported. Fuente: Autocosmos
