The Chevrolet Trailblazer has been spotted testing multiple times, featuring an exterior identical to the model sold in Thailand. It will be based on a ladder-frame chassis from the Chevrolet Colorado pick-up, much like its rivals like the Toyota Fortuner and the upcoming Ford Endeavour.

Inside, the Trailblazer will feature power-adjustable (driver only) leather seats, ABS, dual front airbags, auto HVAC, a touchscreen Chevrolet MyLink entertainment system with navigation, DVD playback and a reverse camera.

Powering the Trailblazer is a 2.8-liter four-cylinder Duramax diesel engine delivering 200 hp and 500 Nm of torque, the latter being a class-leading figure. It will be paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission, as seen in the above spyshot. Depending on the trim, it will equipped with a standard 2WD or 4WD system.
