Chevrolet took the wraps off the 2016 Trailblazer SUV facelift at the 37th Bangkok International Motor Show. Dubbed the Trailblazer Premier, the new version of the SUV has been showcased as a near-to-production car at the show.
The big SUV from Chevrolet has received an all new face in line with the Colorado pick-up sold in the US market. Compared to the current version sold in India, the new Trailblazer is more angular and sporty in design. On the face, the bumpers, bonnet and headlamps have been reworked to give it a more butch look. The signature split grille with bowtie emblem is now more upright. There are some chrome touches on the grille as well.
The side and rear profiles are largely untouched. The major addition in the side profile is newly designed alloy wheels. At the rear, the tail lamps get new inserts and the bumper has also been tweaked slightly. On the interior, it gets a new dashboard with a larger infotainment system and support for Apple CarPlay. The instrument cluster also gets a minor update.
The Trailblazer Premier being a show car, Chevrolet did not reveal any of its technical specifications. The SUV is expected to continue with the same powertrain units. The Trailblazer is powered by a 2.8-litre Duramax four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine that develops 197bhp of power at 3,600rpm and 500Nm of torque at 2,000rpm mated to six-speed automatic transmission in India. For international market, the Trailblazer is also available with a 275bhp, 3.6-litre V6 petrol engine and a 200bhp, 2.5-litre EcoTec petrol engine.
