I like how they have that midget step on the side of it.... like someone needs help to reach in the bed :dunno:

It's just a design trend started by GM and now followed by VW. Ford already does the same in their african small pickup, badged there as Bantam and in the south-american and mexican markets as Courier.

I like the VW version sold down there.

This is the Saveiro, based in the Gol, an econobox very popular in Brazil. The older Fox sold in the U.S. and Canada were based in the first Gol.

I bet it's some Opel variant.

Exactly. It's based in the 3rd-gen Opel Corsa. Made in Brazil where some Opel vehicles are badged as Chevrolet. Even the brazilian S10 and Blazer use Opel-based engines instead of that OHV 2.2L.

This is a rebadged Isuzu D-Max, replaced the Chevrolet LUV (already another rebadged Isuzu) and the S-10 in some markets. It's the same model sold in Asia and Middle East as Chevrolet Colorado.



S-10 is still made in Brazil with this controversial facelift. I must confess I like this blue one.



Opel Combo: this is another Corsa-based light cargo vehicle, just like the Chevrolet Tornado sold in Mexico (known in Brazil as Chevrolet Montana).



Chevy Spark: just like the 1st-gen Aveo, essentially a rebadged Daewoo.



Chevrolet Celta: based in 2nd-gen Opel Corsa, this econobox is currently made in Gravataí, a few miles away from my hometown, Porto Alegre. It's sold in Brazil with a flexfuel 1.0L engine, and in Uruguay and Argentina (badged as Suzuki Fun in Argentina) with a 85hp 8-valve 1.4 gasser. Before this facelift it had also been offered in Guatemala with the same 1.0L used in Brazil at the time (a 60hp gasser).

This one is made in China and assemblied in Colombia and Ecuador from CKD kits. I must confess I like it, wouldn't be so bad to replace the aging 1st-gen Opel Meriva. Due to its RWD layout it wouldn't be so bad in hilly terrain...

Not trying to thread-jack...but when I was in Seychelles, I saw a crew cab Ranger:

It's actually a rebadged Mazda B-series, that was sold as Ranger in some caribbean, european, african and asian/middle-eastern markets. But there is also a real double-cab Ranger made in Argentina for south-american and mexican markets.

BTW the double-cab S-10 that had been offered also in the U.S. market was intended to the south-american market. Extended-cabs are not so popular here...
