Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.
Chevrolet Trailblazer to launch in October 2015.
Chevrolet has finally revealed the India-spec Chevrolet Trailblazer and Spin MPV at a press conference in Delhi today. The former will launch in the Indian market in October, while the latter will enter the market in early 2017 – a long wait for eager customers.
The Chevrolet Trailblazer is identical to the one sold in Thailand, where it is produced. The only difference is inside the Trailblazer, where the India-spec model is finished in a dual-tone beige and black color combo.
It also features a piano black center console with a 7 inch MyLink touchscreen infotainment display, and an automatic HVAC system. The steering houses buttons for the telephony and cruise control, while the instrument cluster features two sculpted binnacles for the tachometer and speedometer.
Powering the Chevrolet Trailblazer is a 2.8-litre Duramax diesel engine which produces 200 hp at 3,600 rpm and 500 Nm of torque at 2,000 rpm. At the moment, it’s confirmed to get a six speed automatic gearbox. It could also be equipped with an AWD system with ESP and Hill Assist.
