At the on-going 2016 Bangkok International Motor Show, Chevrolet unveiled the Trailblazer Premier SUV – which were designed and built at Holden’s GM Australia Design Centre in Port Melbourne – hint at a new direction for this offering in the Indian market.
The American car maker has been testing this new model since a few months across various international locations. Now made its appearance with jazzed-up exterior, fresh bits include an sleeker headlamps with LED DRLs, wider grille and a new bumper design with round fog lamps. Changes to the rear are limited to revised LED treatment and restyled bumpers.
The interior adopts an all-new dashboard design and a slightly larger infotainment system that now supports Apple CarPlay as well. The instrument cluster is now more simple than the one it replaces of the squarish retro gauges as seen on the current model. Also note the new upholstery and more chrome embellishments across the cabin.
Mechanically, GM Thailand has not revealed the technical specifications of the facelifted Trailblazer. It is likely to be powered by the same 197bhp, 2.8-litre Duramax turbocharged diesel engine on-sale in India. While foreign markets receive a more powerful 275bhp, 3.6-litre V6 petrol engine and select markets will even have a choice of 200bhp, 2.5-litre EcoTec petrol engine.
Now, we have some concrete information from our trusted sources that the facelifted Chevrolet Trailblazer SUV will arrive into India in the sometime in next 12 months as a mid career product facelift.
