The interior is based on the 2015 Trailblazer, coming with leather upholstery in two colors, with the predominant Brownstone and stitched seam and glossy black finished panels.
Talking about the S10 concept, the head of design at GM South America said "The piece has great aerodynamic function and ultimately raising the profile and the load capacity of the bucket. All of these changes create the impression that the vehicle is even greater.”
