Here we go again. Rumors about the 2021 Chevy Cheyenne and Cheyenne SS are becoming louder. Still, the situation hasn’t changed and we can’t see the old truck coming back. There are a lot of questions about its development and production cost, as well as the place in the market. Finally, this is all going to cause its position in the market and sales expectations. Since these questions have negative answers, we doubt that any kind of comeback is planned for the foreseeable future.
The sporty truck segment is dead. Some other classes are still trying to survive with the growth of SUVs and their versatility that kills all other types of vehicles. So, bringing back something that was discontinued a long time ago has no sense. One of the options is to use the nameplate for trucks that sells well in the 21st century. But, General Motors has all classes covered, both with Chevrolet and GMC models. Some even criticize the manufacturer because of the competition that the company is making to itself. But, there is a tiny possibility of the 2021 Chevy Cheyenne to happen.
2021 Chevy Cheyenne: Subcompact Truck?
In light of recent feedback, we can find a slot for the 2021 Chevy Cheyenne. Ford is preparing a surprise. Fans can already see the prototypes of the compact Courier truck. A not too long time ago, the leading manufacturer in the US had no representative in the mid-size class, and now they are making a strange move. The Courier would be a small city pickup with improved efficiency and respectable towing capabilities.
Of course, other players in the truck industry won’t sit and wait for how Ford is dominating. General Motors will immediately respond, and we can expect the same from FCA and Toyota. The new compact truck might be called 2021 Chevy Cheyenne. Nevertheless, this is clear speculation based on the latest happenings in the market. It is up to bosses to weigh the situation and make a call.
What is Cheyenne SS?
Like Cheyenne, the SS lineup is dead as well. The only model wearing this badge is Camaro muscle truck. But, this is the car and the lineup totally different from everything else we find in the market. But, GM could bring both of them back in the near future. The performance-oriented package is already on the way for the Blazer SUV (one of the examples of comebacks). Still, there is quite a difference – the truck segment is surviving only thanks to its working abilities, while the SUV class is the hottest market at the moment.
Adding the 2021 Chevy Cheyenne SS if it becomes the subcompact truck would be a total disaster. Fans would like to see a big model with a huge engine and outputs. The SS package is something we expect to compete with Ford Raptor, or even the new Ram 1500 TRX and its Hellcat engine. Wasting the time and money for the compact pickup is not going to be profitable, as much as some larger truck.
