Expected to launch in the second half of this year.
The Chevrolet Trailblazer was once again spotted on tests, this time in Trivandrum by Team BHP member Bijoy B S. GM India started running road tests of the SUV soon after it confirmed a launch that will take place this year.
In markets like Thailand and Philippines, GM introduced an updated 2015 model year of the Trailblazer with improved NVH levels, better features and more powerful diesel engines. A 163 hp/380 Nm 2.5-liter diesel engine and a 200 hp/500 Nm 2.8-liter diesel engine power the Trailblazer in these markets. Sources close to the development of the project say that GM India would offer the more powerful engine, paired to manual and automatic transmissions.
Inside, the updated Trailblazer receives a piano-black finish for its center console and Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system with a touchscreen display. A sportier trim with LED daytime running lights and redesigned bumpers with a chin spoiler was recently introduced for the Filipino market.
GM India is yet to confirm if the Trailblazer will be launched through the CKD or CBU route. Reports say the American car maker will choose the former in order to achieve competitive pricing.
Rivals: Ford Endeavour, Toyota Fortuner, Mitsubishi Pajero Sport
Expected Launch: H2 2015
