2020 Chevy Monza Changes, Specs, Engine, & Spy Shots – The Monza won’t have the identical historical importance within the Chevrolet lineup as cars like the Camaro or Corvette (although it was a staple in the Opel range right up until 1986). But in just five years on the market (1975-1980), the compact seemingly manufactured sufficiently of an effect for a revival. After a long 38-year hiatus, it’s producing a comeback… sort of.
At the approaching Guangzhou Auto Show in China, Chevy and SAIC-GM – General Motors’ Chinese husband or wife responsible for manufacturers like Money, Chevrolet, and Cadillac – will unveil a trio of new Chevy vehicles. The first will likely be an extended-wheelbase Malibu XL, the other are going to be a brand-new Chevy SUV concept (or, a Blazer for China), and of course, the third will likely be the new Monza. Our greatest guess is that Chevy will hold the Monza a Chinese market vehicle exclusively – so all you American Monza enthusiasts should not get the expectations up.
The company released one teaser graphic of the new vehicle, previewing its competitive-looking front bumper with a fake vent and an “RS” badge embedded in the grille, but not a lot more. Chevy guarantees aspects like “a serious driving encounter” and “sporty genes of the Chevrolet brand” in its press release, but matters powertrain options and trim stages remain a secret. If its badge is any indication, the new Monza will at least get a warm RS treatment in line with many other RS models like the Traverse and Cruze. Don’t anticipate any high-output turbocharged engines. At minimum not right now.
But this teaser is not the only proof we’ve got that the Monza is generating a recovery. A spy wedding photographer submitted a hazy image of what seems to be the base Monza. That embedded Facebook post is beneath. Much more aspects on the new Monza should really debut nearer to the car’s unveiling. Doors open to the Guangzhou Auto Show on November 17, 2018.
