At an event in Gurgaon, Chevrolet has put their best foot forward with the launch of the new Trailblazer, which is the most powerful and torquey SUV in its class! Let us quickly list all the details..
- Trailblazer will be imported from Thailand and sold in India as a CBU
- Dual airbags
- ABS with EBD
- Cornering Brake Control (CBC)
- Hill start assist (HSA)
- Hill Descent Control (HDC)
- Traction Control (TCS)
- Panic Brake Assist (PBA)
- Hydraulic Brake Assist (HBA)
- 7 inch touchscreen and Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system
- Siri Eyes Free for Apple users
- First in class projector fog lamps
Trailblazer is powered by the second-generation 2.8 liter Duramax turbocharged diesel engine which is a 4 cylinder unit and churns out 200 PS (at 3600 rpm) of segment best power output along with 500 Nm (at 2000 rpm) of mammoth torque. It is mated with a 6-speed automatic transmission and comes in rear-wheel drive mode only. So there is no manual tyranny nor a 4 wheel drive yet.
According to CMVR Rule 115, Trailblazer returns a fuel economy of 11.45 kmpl and is bolted on a body on frame chassis with a 253 mm high ground clearance, guaranteeing fantastic off-road capability.
Trailblazer is only available in the top of the line LTZ trim and costs Rs 26,40,000 ex-showroom in New Delhi. Bookings have opened from today at Amazon.in at a price of Rs 25,000 and will continue till 25th. Local dealerships will also take regular bookings of the SUV.
Chevrolet is offering Trailblazer in three color options..
- Summit White
- Switchblade Silver
- Black Sapphire
In our opinion the pricing (introductory for now) is pretty decent and Chevrolet Trailblazer will fight against Fortuner and Pajero Sport among others and offers a real interesting prospect…
