In an attempt to push the sluggish sales, Chevrolet launched the Trailblazer in India at Rs 26.40 lakh, ex-showroom. An SUV in the true sense, the Trailblazer looks massive when seen from any angle. Chevy incorporated the new bow tie grille on the Trailblazer to make it look familiar to other portfolio models. Not that the Chevy SUV looks upmarket like the Ford Endeavour but then has huge numbers in terms of volume to its side.
The interiors of the Chevrolet Trailblazer are much in sync with the exterior however lacks the premium feel. While the interior sticks to a dual-tone combination, the centre console is finished in gloss black. The climate control switches form a circle that in our opinion looks out of place. The dash also offers various storage points and a split glove box. In terms of performance, the 2.8-litre Duramax turbodiesel four-cylinder DOHC unit produces 200PS at 3,600rpm and a makes a massive torque of 500Nm at just 2,000rpm.
Chevrolet Trailblazer competes against Toyota Fortuner and the new Ford Endeavour in India. Here is an image gallery of the Chevrolet Trailblazer.
