Novo Chevrolet Trailblazer 2017

The facelifted Chevrolet Trailblazer has been officially unveiled in Brazil. The pickup-platform vehicle (PPV), is based on the facelifted Chevrolet Colorado truck and sports updates all around.

Size wise, the Trailblazers measures in at 4,800 mm long, 1,900 mm wide and 2,850 mm tall. Much like the new Colorado, the exterior features of the Trailblazer include a new front bumper with integrated foglights, a larger dual-port grille and new-shape headlamps with LED daytime running lights

At the rear, a lot has been carried over from the pre-facelift Trailblazer, except for a new taillamp cluster design and rear bumper. On the top-of-the-range LTZ models, the Trailblazer comes with 18-inch aluminium alloy wheels and new sidesteps for easier entry and exit into the vehicle.

Elsewhere, Chevrolet stated that the Trailblazer will also have better drivability and enhanced noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) levels. Furthermore, the vehicle will have improved braking and suspension systems as well. Meanwhile, the facelifted Trailblazer gets hill-start assist and hill-descent control as standard.

Inside, the vehicle comes with soft-touch plastic trim along with the updated instrument cluster and door trim as the Colorado. Said instrument cluster now comes with a new multi-info display, digital speedometer, maintenance intervals and oil life cycle.

In the middle, the Trailblazer gets a revised centre console with silver accents, featuring Chevrolet’s second-generation eight-inch MyLink2 touchscreen infotainment system. The system has also been updated for improved smartphone integration, voice command and navigation. It now supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as well.

On the LTZ models, added items include automatic headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, an electro-chromatic rearview mirror, reverse camera, front parking sensors, remote control function for the engine and power windows, automatic climate control and a power-adjustable driver’s seat.

Power offerings for the Trailblazer include a 200 hp/500 Nm 2.8 litre Duramax diesel engine and an uprated 3.6 litre V6 petrol engine with 279 hp (2 hp more) and 357 Nm of torque. Both units are paired to a six-speed automatic gearbox as standard.

Safety wise the Trailblazer comes with front, side and curtain airbags, Isofix points and ABS with EBD, traction control and electronic stability programme (ESP). Driver assistance tech such as blind spot warning, lane-change assist, front collision warning and reverse camera with cross-traffic alert are included as well.
