About Chevrolet Trailblazer
The Chevrolet Trailblazer is GM’s new premium SUV in the sub- Rs 30 lakh segment. It takes on the likes of the Toyota Fortuner, Ford Endeavour and Mitsubishi Pajero Sport in the segment.
The Trailblazer has fantastic road presence, which will be the main draw in this segment. That massive grille in your wing mirrors, the bulging bonnet and the high set stance thanks to its 241mm ground clearance (highest in segment) shod by 265/60 R18 wheels, the Trailblazer does look the part of an SUV willing to rough it up and bully other motorists around. The size is big enough for the Trailblazer to need any kind of plastic cladding to accentuate it stance. Chunky six spoke alloys on those 18-inch wheels look the part as well.
Like the exterior, the interior is a simple mix of functionality and space. The front seats are comfortable, you seat high up and the view out of the driver’s seat is excellent. There’s plenty of space for the middle row passengers as well and the seats are comfortable too. You can also hop into the third row of this genuine seven seater.
The 7-inch Touchscreen infotainment system comes with a smartphone app link for internet radios like Tunein, there’s the usual USB, Aux-in and Bluetooth connectivity and there’s video playback too. The Trailblazer also gets leather seats, auto foldable outside mirrors and cruise control. And with four 12V sockets, AC vents for the second and third row, the Trailblazer gets all the comfort and convenience features you will need. On the safety front, you get two front airbags, ABS with EBD, hill start assist, hill descent control, traction control, ESC and cornering brake control.
Powering the Trailblazer is 2.8-litre 4-cylimder duramax diesel engine that is known for its high torque output. With 200PS of power at 3,600rpm and 500Nm of torque at 2,000rpm, the Trailblazer has quite some punch to counter its 2068kg kerb weight. Power is sent to the rear wheels on this road going SUV. It’s a pity GM didn’t bring the 4WD variant to India considering it is a CBU.
The Trailblazer comes with a ARAI rated mileage of 11.45kmpl. In the real world you will receive between 8-10kmpl.
Chevrolet Trailblazer Overview
Oct 21, 2016 : The Chevrolet Trailblazer was launched in India in October 2015 to compete with the Toyota Fortuner and the Ford Endeavour. It went on sale with an asking price of Rs 26.40 lakh. But post the announcement of the budget for the current fiscal year, all carmakers were forced to hike the prices of their offerings in India, and the Trailblazer’s price tag was revised to Rs 26.99 lakh. Now, though, the GM-owned automaker has slashed the price of the Trailblazer’s only variant available in India – the LTZ – by a humongous Rs 3.04 lakh. Do the math and you’ll see that one can now purchase the big SUV for Rs 23.95 lakh (all prices ex-showroom, Delhi)
