The Trailblazer has been recently imported into India for homologation purposes, we can presumably think of an launch next year (going by Chevy's pace of work in India)

Spotted the same GJ registration last month, during Chennai road tests. This was for 2 successive days.

The PowerDrift team caught the Chevy Trailblazer and snapped its exteriors and interiors from up close.

Equipped with a 6-speed Automatic, the massive SUV looks butch from up front with projector headlamps, while a huge touchscreen Head Unit (possibly the Chevy MyLink infotainment system) dominates the central part of the dashboard.

The Trailblazer is likely to come with a 2.8L diesel powerplant producing 200 HP@3600 RPM of power and 500 Nm@2000 RPM of torque.

What was the point of bringing it here and then covering it up in camo? Especially the tapping up of the interior like that, it is a post production piece anyway.


The car is already on sale in Thailand and the whole world already knows what it looks like.

=> Probably they want to keep an element of surprise and a topic for discussion for the Indian Automotive Community and also create a topic of discussion and debate for various automotive magazines/journals to keep the readers awaited and excited.

Even i had spotted a camouflaged Trailblazer on Paud road in Pune sometime in the last week. Couldn't click any pics as i was on my bike. Though i prefer the looks of the last generation Trailblazer, the new one isnt bad either. Hope Chevy prices it well and improves their After sales service.

A nice video I came across of the Trailblazer. Seems to have the off-road ability for normal use, which one expects from a ~25L SUV in comfort.

IAB reports that the Chevy Trailblazer will initially come in India through the CBU (Completely Built Up) route, from General Motors' Thailand plant at Rayong.

GM India is expected to launch the Trailblazer sometime by early 2016.

Quote:
GM India is keen on launching the 2016 model year version of the SUV, however, the Rayong plant is presently making the 2015 model year of the Trailblazer. Once the plant commences manufacturing the 2016 MY, GM India will launch the Trailblazer in the country.

For the Indian market, the Trailblazer will be powered by a four-cylinder Duramax diesel engine capable of 200 hp and 500 Nm of torque, paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Both, 2WD and 4WD variants are expected to be introduced in India.

The Trailblazer has been spied inside out by Pragya Chhajer of Motoroids. We have a clear view of the interiors of the Indian version now.

What do we see : Two tone interior upholstery and dashboard (biege + black), leather wrapped steering wheel with mounted controls for music & telephony, piano black trimmed centre console, an infotainment system with a decently sized screen and an a chrome trimmed shifter for the 6-speed auto box.
Spied here could very well be the top end LTZ variant, as the full leather upholstery would like us to believe.
The rear seat looks accommodating enough, and packs an integrated armrest which packs a couple of cup-holders. Piano black inserts make their presence felt on the door pads as well.

The Trailblazer looks very imposing and looks like a proper SUV. It has immense ground clearance and has that trademark SUV ladder-on-frame chassis.

Those of you who want a quick glimpse of the Autocar review, here it follows. the ACI review had a very positive impression on this beast. They loved its massive 2.8 Ltr Duramax engine which lets loose 200 horses. Also, they said the ride though stiff was acceptable and the steering was well weighted and handling was tidy too. Looks promising. Now, the only think is the price. If the CBU is priced at par the Fortuner, this SUV has all the makings of being a decent seller for Chevrolet.

I hope GM brings this before the new Endeavour and new Fortuner come to our markets. This should give it a head start I feel before people go crazy over the other two especially the new Fortuner. Needless to say pricing will be the key on this one. If priced right say around the 25-27 lacs on road mark it will succeed else most customers will prefer the Fortuner or Endeavour over this. Will be tough as the Captiva is already priced much higher than this. GM should offer this as a replacement to the Captiva rather than selling that dud alongside.

Good to note that the automatic box will be offered from start. Interiors do look quite upmarket and in tune with a vehicle from this segment. What are you waiting for GM this vehicle cannot come a day sooner!
