Significant revisions seen in the front-end and interior.
Chevrolet has unveiled the facelifted 2016 Trailblazer for the Brazilian market, which gets thorough revisions on the outside as well as the inside. Here’s a brief pictorial comparison between the new Trailblazer and the outgoing model.
The American manufacturer claims to have integrated 50 innovations in the new Trailblazer. Compared to the outgoing model, the facelifted Trailblazer gets a completely redesigned front end with new headlamps housing sleek LED DRLs, wider two-part grille with more chrome embellishments and a new bumper design with larger fog lamps. From other angles, the Trailblazer is largely identical to the outgoing model.
Inside, the new Trailblazer gets an all-new dashboard design that is claimed to be trimmed with better materials. The Trailblazer LTZ grade comes equipped with a new 8-inch MyLink infotainment system that offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, revised instrument cluster with a larger multi-info display, and silver accents around the central HVAC vents.
New to the Trailblazer is a list of safety features such as collision warning, lane-change assist, front parking sensors, blind spot warning, tire pressure monitoring and reverse camera with cross-traffic alert. The new Trailblazer also adopts an upgraded EPAS (steering system) that is expected to improve maneuverability in cities while consuming lesser fuel.
Chevrolet is offering two engine options for the Brazilian spec Trailblazer: a 2.8-litre Duramax diesel engine that produces 200 hp & 500 Nm of torque and a 3.6-litre V6 petrol engine that produces 279 hp (2 hp power bump) & 357 Nm of torque. Both are paired to a 6-speed automatic gearbox as standard. With improvements made to the chassis, it is claimed that fuel efficiency has increased by 3.4 percent from the previous model.
