The 2001 Chevy Borrego

The segment-busting Borrego concept from Chevrolet combines the road-taming agility of a rally car
with the traditional toughness of a Chevy. The all-wheel drive vehicle can commute very comfortably
during the weekdays and then let off a little steam on the weekends. The interior continues Chevy's traditional dual-cockpit design, and gives a sense of protection for rough riding. Rugged analog gauges finish the rally appearance. Borrego's sturdy roll bar not only harkens to durable pre-runners and rally cars, it also accommodates an innovative reconfigurable mid-gate at the rear of the passenger cab
that allows seating for two more passengers. Self-inflating seals keep the compartment Watertight regardless of its configuration. With the seating expanded, the cargo bed changes from 6 feet to about 3 feet to provide more room for passengers. The Convert-a-Cab™ system allows one person to reconfigure the cargo area in seconds without tools to create a 4' x 8' cargo area to transport large items. The Borrego's sturdy all-wheel-drive powertrain is based on Subaru's longitudinal all-wheel-drive system. The turbocharged 2.5-liter horizontally opposed 4-cylinder engine keeps the vehicle's center of gravity low for improved handling and a better sight line down the hood.
