The Trailblazer is one of the biggest SUVs on sale in India, size-wise. It is bigger than the Toyota Fortuner, and that really is saying something. 253mm of ground clearance is what the 'Blazer boasts of, and that's a properly high number, even by SUV standards. It may as well offer a big engine, along with oodles of space for a family of seven. The athletic and refined stance of the Chevrolet Trailblazer demands serious attention. It’s dressed to please with just the right mix of chrome, sharp lines and flared arches. Yet, it exudes enough muscle which encourages to take on the roughest roads you’ll ever drive on. 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. The SUV does not boast of unique styling, yet all the proportions are neat and cohesive.
Only a single variant is available for now, but you won't complain. This is the top-of-the-line LTZ trim, so you get an extensive list of kit: projector headlights, projector fog lamps a segment-first, 18-inch alloys, electrically-adjustable ORVMs, climate control, reverse camera with park assist, Chevrolet's MyLink infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen, and on the safety front, you get dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, traction and stability control, cornering brake control, panic brake assist, hill start assist and hill descent control. At the heart of the Chevrolet Trailblazer is the powerful 2.8L DURAMAX Engine. It effortlessly combines power with performance to pack punch through varied terrains. The sheer power of the DURAMAX engine is designed to let you be in command on the trails.
As overwhelming the Chevrolet Trailblazer is on the outside, step inside and you cannot stop being impressed at the technology and luxury that embraces you. Commanding driving position, controls at your fingertips and comfortable seating for 7 that is unequaled by any other vehicle in its class. And then you discover that there still is enough boot space to pack in luggage as well. When you're travelling seven-up, you'll have 205 liters of boot space at your disposal. Offload the two passengers seated right at the back, and that figure will go up to 878 litres. Chevy claims the 'Blazer will do a little over 11 kilometres on a litre of diesel, and with its 76-litre fuel tank, it will have a range of well over 800 kilometers.
At ₹26.4 lakh, the Trailblazer is around ₹1.2 lakh more expensive than a 4x2 auto box-equipped Fortuner, but on paper, it beats the Toyota Fortuner when it comes to sheer size. The SUV is rumored to be pitted against likes of Toyota Fortuner and Mitsubishi Pajero Sport.
The Chevrolet Trailblazer doesn’t wear any guises. It’s the biggest and the most powerful SUV in its segment, with aesthetics to match.
