Will be powered by a 2.8-liter diesel engine in India.
The Chevrolet Trailblazer was snapped testing by a Motoroids reader, and this time, the SUV shows its interior in these spyshots.
Likely a top-end variant, the Trailblazer is seen with an automatic transmission (a 6-speed unit), dual-tone black and beige interior, a touchscreen Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system, steering mounted controls, climate control and leather seats.
The Trailblazer for the Indian market is expected to launch towards the end of this calendar year. Initially, sources say that the SUV will be imported as a CBU (Completely Built-up Unit) from GM's plant in Rayong, Thailand.
For the Indian market, the Trailblazer will be powered by a 2.8-liter four-cylinder Duramax diesel engine capable of 200 hp and 500 Nm of torque, paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission with 2WD and 4WD options. While GM offers the Trailblazer with a 2.5-liter diesel engine abroad, its unlikely for this engine option to launch in India, at least initially.
The Trailblazer in its Thai-specification measures 4,866 mm in length, 1,902 mm in width, 1,848 mm in height and 2,845 mm in wheelbase. It will compete mainly with the Toyota Fortuner, Ford Endeavour and Hyundai Santa Fe in the Indian market. While the new 2015 Ford Endeavour is expected to launch in India this year, Toyota Kirloskar Motor plans on introducing the next-gen Fortuner in the next financial year.
