Expected to be brought through the CKD route.
Autocar India has snapped these images of a Chevrolet Trailblazer, which it claims is a 2WD AT variant. However, GM India is also expected to launch the AWD variant of the Trailblazer, when the SUV goes on sale in the country this calendar year.
However, all variants of the Trailblazer are expected to be powered by a 2.8-liter Duramax four-cylinder diesel engine capable of 200 hp and 500 Nm of torque with 6-speed automatic transmissions. At 4,866 mm in length, 1,902 mm in width, 1,848 mm in height and 2,845 mm in wheelbase, the Trailblazer will rival the likes of the Toyota Fortuner, Hyundai Santa Fe and Ford Endeavour in India.
Projector headlights with LED daytime running lights and LED brake lights, 17- or 18-inch alloy wheels, TPMS, reverse camera, dual front airbags, ABS, EBD and ESP will be offered on the SUV. A 7-inch Chevrolet MyLink touchscreen media system with mobile connect for iOS and Android could also be seen on the top-end LTZ variant.
For the Indian market, GM is likely to source CKD kits of the SUV from its Thailand plant. The Captiva will likely be discontinued post the launch of the Trailblazer.
