Chevrolet Trailblazer is one of the vehicles most shrouded in mystery at the moment. This mid-size SUV which shares its body with Chevy Colorado, a pickup truck that’s recently become US made might share the same fate as its pickup sibling, but when, that is still a question. In any case, Trailblazer is getting a facelift, whether as a next-gen model, or as a model that gets a mid-cycle routine refresh.
2015 Chevrolet Trailblazer review
It is offered in LT and LTZ trim levels across the international markets. Powertrain options include a 2.8L diesel engine which develops 200 hp and 370 lb-ft of torque, and a 3.6L petrol V6 engine that yields 236 hp and 242 ft-lb of torque. Trailblazer also offers a choice between FWD and 4WD, while transmission is exclusively 6-speed automatic. If, by chance, new Trailblazer becomes available in the US, and it is highly unlikely for 2015, more trim levels and additional engine choice (with the exclusion of diesel powertrain) can be expected.
Front end fascia is going to be refreshed, that’s for certain as it is the part of a vehicle that always gets changed when facelift is in order. New grille might become a little bit wider and will get a new mesh below the Chevy’s trademark horizontal bar. Headlights should remain pretty much the same, while out back, Tail-lights and bumper will be revised.
Trailblazer is one of the rare mid-sizers with third row of seats. Even though it is spacious enough up front, last row is a bit on a small side and adults might have some hard time back there. As far as interior trim goes, there’s a standard cloth seating upholstery and available leather one on LTZ trim. Dashboard and instrument panel will get a new look which will be more conventional, unlike previous experimental one. There’s available LCD color display with rearview camera and navigation on LTZ trim, while all models get 8-speaker sound system. Together with an airbag system, you’ll get stability and traction control, electronic brake-force distribution, hill descent control and hill start assist among others.
Fuel economy ratings will stand in the same region as before, with petrol engine returning 20 mpg combined and diesel powertrain getting around 25 mpg combined. Trailblazer costs at least $30,000, while its highest tier might cost almost $40,000.
2015 Chevrolet Trailblazer is unusual mid-size SUV which offers enough room for seven people, solid design inside-out and respectable fuel efficiency, at least with diesel engine. These feats make it one of the best SUV’s in some oversea markets and it would easily find its place in the US market as well.
This model is on the market is expected to end this year.
