Chevrolet Trailblazer Facelift Revealed
At the ongoing 2016 Bangkok Motor Show, American automaker Chevrolet has revealed the facelifted version of its premium SUV – the Trailblazer. As Thailand happens to be Trailblazer’s home market, it makes sense that the update of this utility vehicle has been first showcased at he country’s largest motor show. Considering the fact that it was launched in India last year, we expect the facelifted version of Trailblazer sometime in 2017.
The possibility of this SUV hitting the roads in international markets this year has been strengthened substantially, courtesy of this production-spec model’s showcase. The car is expected to go on sale in international markets by end-2016. Since this is a facelift, the car only incorporates marginal aesthetic updates and remains mechanically unchanged. As far as power plant options are concerned, the utility vehicle continues to incorporate its 2.0-litre Duramax Turbocharged diesel motor, which is capable of producing 197 bhp of power output and 500 Nm of segment-best torque, which will continue the car to provide a zippy ride to its occupants. The outgoing model of the Trailblazer rivals the likes of the Toyota Fortuner and the recently launched Ford Endeavour.
The aesthetic updates for the Chevrolet Trailblazer bestow it with a sharper design, which is in tune with Chevrolet’s new design language approach that one can also see in the next-generation Cruze sedan and hatchbacks. The updated looks come courtesy an all-new bonnet, upright grille, redesigned headlamps, prominent chrome highlights, new alloy wheels, updated bumpers, etc.
On the inside, occupants are greeted with creature comforts like the updated Apple CarPlay infotainment system. There is also a possibility that the American automaker might introduce the 3.6-litre V6 petrol engine. Globally, the Trailblazer is offered in both petrol and diesel variants. There could be possibility that the Bowtie brand might offer the 3.6 litre V6 petrol in India too as a powerplant update for the facelift.
