The Trailblazer is also offered with a 2.5-liter diesel engine in Thailand, which is unlikely to be seen in India initially.

Sources tell Indian Autos Blog that the Trailblazer will be introduced towards the end of this year, and that GM India are awaiting the Thai plant to start production of the 2016 model year of the Trailblazer. Initially, the SUV will be imported through the CBU route.

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, the latter being a class-leading figure. It will be paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission, as seen in spyshot. However, GM would offer 2WD and 4WD variants of the SUV.
