The new Trailblazer features a more contemporary front-end with sleeker projector headlamps housing LED DRLs, a wider Chevy two-part grille with bolder chrome embellishers and a new front bumper design with larger fog lamps. The base variant rides on 17-inch alloy wheels as standard, while the top-end LTZ grade gets dual-tone 18-inch alloy wheels.

The interior features a redesigned housing for a new 8-inch MyLink infotainment system that offers Apple CarPlay (7-inch in the base LT model), revised instrument cluster with a larger multi-info display, and silver accents around the central HVAC vents. The range-topping LTZ 4×4 comes equipped with collision warning, lane-change assist, front parking sensors, blind spot warning, and cross-traffic alert. A notable upgrade is the new EPAS (steering system) that should refine the large SUVs maneuverability in cities while consuming lesser fuel.

The Thai-spec Trailblazer is only available with a 2.5L four cylinder diesel engine with VGT (variable geometry turbo), which produces 180 PS and 440 Nm of peak torque. The only transmission option is a 6-speed automatic gearbox that shuffles power to the rear wheels or all four wheels via a 4×4 system (optional in LTZ).
