The Chevrolet Trailblazer is a midsize SUV that can handle the great outdoors with its class-leading performance and drivability while still being practical enough for the everyday city drive. Its front fascia bears the American brand’s new signature dual-port grille which is topped off with its iconic bowtie badge, sleek headlights with DRLs, and intakes and fog lamps along the bumpers.
Under the hood, a choice of powerful 2.5L and 2.8L diesel engines mated to either a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission will be available. The 2.5L powerplant can produce 163 hp and 380 Nm of torque while the latter can pump out 200 hp and a class-leading 500 Nm of torque.
Inside, the Trailblazer can sit up to 7 people comfortable on either leather or cloth covered seats depending on the variant. Meanwhile, cooling the cabin is manual air conditioning or Automatic Climate Control for the top-of-the-line variant. Entertainment is provided by a 7- or 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system loaded with the latest Chevrolet MyLink System. This can play your favourite radio station, music, or movies through a 4- or 7-speaker setup. Moreover, it can connect via Bluetooth and is compatible with any smartphone and can use Siri Eyes Free.
For safety and security, this midsize SUV boasts a host of active and passive safety features such as front and passenger airbags, Traction Control System (TCS), Anti-lock Braking System with EBD (ABS), Panic Brake Assist (PBA), Hill Descent Control (HDC), and Hill Start Assist (HAS).
