Chevrolet Utility Bakkie: Why it’s a Good Buy

South Africa adores bakkies and over the years the Chevrolet Utility bakkie has remained a firm favourite. This bakkie offers an affordable and reliable way of getting around.

Manufatured as an Opel Corsa bakkie back in 1982, fitted with a 1.2 litre 55 horsepower engine. Redesigned in 1990, updates were made to the interior and the headlights were modified. Once taken over by Chevrolet, the current models have maintained the bakkie's reputation for being hard-weating, dependable and good quality vehicles that are affordable. The bakkie, also known now as the Chevrolet Utility, has a sleek and practical design. The bakkie has maintained its popularity and is one of the best sellers on the market.

Manufactured in Brazil, it was first released on the South African market in 2004, with models available in sports or club trim. The bakkie is a fun drive with good handling capabilities. Suitable for transporting light goods, the bakkie has a payload of 650kgs and a towing capacity of over 600kgs. But not only that - the Chevrolet Utility bakkie can deliver great response from its 66 kW engine.

The Chevrolet Utility bakkie has a standard fuel consumption of 8 litres per 110 kms. Standard models have power steering and an adjustable driver’s seat and an immobiliser for safety.

The Chevrolet Utility Sport version has air-conditioning and extra security measures such as an alarm and central locking. Airbags and an ABS breaking system are also an important safety measure and the fog lamps give extra visibility in bad weather. The interior has an athletic appearance with its sports seats and stylish trims.
