Chevrolet India's new SUV seems to be in great demand. The SUV, which was launched on 21 October, has done well, with the company selling all 150 units of the SUV imported in the first batch. The next set of the SUV will be imported and available from March 2016.
A report from Carwale indicates the current demand for the SUV is largely from tier1 and tier 2 cities. The SUV was launched with a sticker price of Rs 26.4 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi and sold only in a single variant and rear-wheel driven version.
The SUV measures 4,878mm in length, 1,902mm in width and 1,847mm of height. It comes with 2,845mm wheelbase and has a ground clearance of class leading 253mm. The Trailblazer also comes with class-leading boot space of 1830-litres. The face of the SUV is similar to the manufacturer's family design, with split grill and 'bowtie' Chevrolet logo at the centre. The massive grille is flanked by sharp-looking projector headlamps. The rear of the vehicle is similar to its main rival, Toyota Fortuner, with typical boxy design.
On the interior, the SUV has a three-spoke steering wheel that comes with mounted controls for audio and cruise control. The SUV also features 7-inch 'MyLink' touchscreen infotainment system with smart phone app link.
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.
The new Chevrolet Trailblazer is pitted against the likes of Toyota Fortuner and Mitsubishi Pajero Sport.
