GM’s upcoming mega-SUV, the Chevrolet Trailblazer, has once again been spotted testing near Baner, in Pune. Though the company seems to have spent some serious effort in camouflaging the SUV, it is easily identifiable as a Trailblazer due to its massive proportions and the distinctive shape.
Though the photographs don’t reveal it, the front of the Trailblazer gets the similar split mesh grille design on the front fascia, which is used in a majority of other Chevrolet cars. The sweptback headlights sit firmly at the edges of the bonnet, while the smooth roofline and sharply raked windscreen try to hide the car’s proportions. In India, the Trailblazer is expected to be offered with a 2.8-litre four-cylinder diesel engine which produces 200bhp and 500Nm of torque. It will be offered in both rear-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive configurations, with a six-speed automatic gearbox.
The Trailblazer is expected to be launched in India in the next couple of months. With a price tag in the range of Rs 32 lakh to Rs 40 lakh, it will compete with other seven-seater SUVs like the Toyota Fortuner, Mitsubishi Pajero Sport and the next-generation Ford Endeavour.
