The Trailblazer is a full-sized SUV that looks sufficiently modern and well proportioned. While the Trailblazer carries many design cues that are typical of Chevy trucks, it doesn’t have a sense of boxiness in its design. On the contrary, the Trailblazer oozes street cred and looks as muscular as the Fortuner and the Ford Endeavour. It will also get projector headlamps and LED tail lamps.
The India-spec Trailblazer comes with a beige-black theme, which is accentuated by piano-black trim on the centre console. The speedo console gets a MID and the highlight of the cabin would be the Chevy’s MyLink infotainment system. The car’s gear-lever also gets some chrome highlights.
The Chevrolet TrailBlazer is available in most markets with two diesel engine options and a petrol motor. The entry-level diesel engine displaces 2.5-litres while the larger motor displaces 2.8-litres. The petrol engine is a V6 unit that displaces 3.6-litres.
