Brazilian GM designer Dagoberto Tribia explains the design of the Chevrolet Trailblazer (2013 model) that has just hit the Thai market. The Trailblazer is anticipated in India as well, as the Trailblazer's key target market is South East Asia.
Ever since the Bowtie badge made its return to the South African market,
the company has constantly surprised with products like the Spark, Utility,
Cruze and Orlando. This has sufficiently emboldened Chevrolet to take on a
formidable contender and an SA favourite with the all new Trailblazer.
@33RDBiMS | Chevrolet TrailBlazer
Time for 33RDBiMS! After my absent to make coverage from IMC's Motor Expo
'11. I've selected the all-new Chevrolet TrailBlazer as first one vid. No
matter how this year will be a real disaster year or not but new vehicles
are just waiting to be emerged on here in Thailand. And with this great
auto show event by GPi, just makes us no worry about that at all. Now let's
find out for how and why this brand new PPV from Chevy just beared the
right to use TrailBlazer trademark. Will all of its features to make one of
itself to be suited with TrailBlazer name? Turn CC on, and see for

The Chevrolet TrailBlazer is a mid-size sport utility vehicle produced by
the Chevrolet division of American automaker General Motors.
On November 10, 2011, General Motors officially revealed a second
generation of the vehicle to be sold worldwide.
31th-Jan-2012: Chevrolet India is mulling to bring its giant Trailblazer
SUV on Indian shores soon. Chevrolet Trailblazer will be positioned amid
Toyota Fortuner and Ford Endeavour in India. Thought to be priced at about
Rs 15 lakh-Rs 17 lakh, Chevy's new beastly SUV will have a choice of
engines ranging from 2.8-litre (180bhp, 47.8 kgm) to 2.5-litre, 150bhp
diesel units. Seeing these figures, one can gauge that the new car is able
to give a neck-to-neck competition to Fortuner and Endeavour. The SUV will
be a proper body on frame with 7 seats and will be more spacious than other
serious SUVs in India.
Chevrolet Trailblazer engine-extremely fuel efficient. The car will come
with two engine tunes, one being 2.8 litres producing 180 BHP of peak power
and the other one with 2.5 litres of engine churning out 150 BHP of power.
Both these motors are diesel and promise the consumer to be highly fuel
efficient. Chevrolet Trailblazer with 2.5 litre of diesel engine is
expected to deliver an average fuel economy of about 13 km per litre, which
is actually quite impressive for an SUV. On the other hand, the variant
powered with 2.8 litre of diesel motor is likely to deliver a mileage of 12
km per litre. To make Chevrolet Trailblazer more fuel economic, the engine
has been intelligently coupled with six speed automatic transmission, which
also enhances the driving experience for the owner. Delivering the mileage
of about12 to 13 km per litre for an SUV is certainly remarkable,
especially when it is being sold in a mileage driven country.
Trailblazer looks sizzling on roads. It has perfect body with awesome
dimensions. The fit and finish has no lacking in it. It is made of highly
detailed sheet metal. The brawn image of Chevrolet Trailblazer is
complemented with sporty roof rails, projector type head lamps and silver
skid plate. Chevrolet is giving all its cars a signature two part grille.
This wide grille is neatly outlined with chrome and the partition adorns a
Chevrolet bowtie on it. The bonnet is held high with a lot of character
lines. The tinted windscreen appears to very small due to the sloping down
roof at the front. An addition in sinew the character of Trailblazer is
added by the thick chrome band incorporated in the lower bumper. This band
extends to the side air ducts which are thickly chrome outlined. It becomes
quite evident that Chevrolet has whole heartedly sprinkled chrome on the
exterior part of this SUV. LED lighting housed in sculpted aluminium
decorative bezels at front as well as rear makes this SUV a luxury piece.
Most of the gazing time is consumed at the front. However, side profile is
no less in enamoring the spectators. The very muscular 20 inch wide wheels
are painted and polished with aluminium and Cooper Zeon LTZ tyres renders
high ground clearance to this SUV. From side, Chevrolet Trailblazer looks a
perfect off-roader with side footboard protector which enables you to steer
this brawny SUV through tough terrains. The high-rising beltline looks
amazing along with character lines on lower side of the door. The mirror
mounted LED turn indicators add that X-factor to the mule. Trailblazer
garners claps from all its angles. The rear windscreen is extended so much
that it comes at the side also. The quarter glass is very small thus
shrinking the window frame and imparting a crossover like structure.
However, the B Pillar is tad too thick and sheds attitude to passerby. It
is reported that the designers in Brazil were very cognizant in sticking to
'body-in, wheels out' type pattern which led to the ultimate sporty look.
This design delivers high approach and departure angles. The intricate
sheet metal work is evident in door panels; rear quarters that amalgamates
layers of natural light.
The new-generation Trailblazer combines the hauling and towing capability
of a body-on-frame SUV While front and side have muscle and matter attached
to its character, the rear is all about elegance. The futuristic design of
tail lamps makes one doubtful about 2012 Chevrolet Trailblazer being a
production version. The rear spoiler a seam of LED high mount stop lamp.
The pillar less rear windscreen is adapted for a wider look at the curvy
rear. Small chrome band acts as a tail gate opener while the longer chrome
bar with loops at either side is placed in the lower bumper just like
front. Tri-coat pearlescent white exterior paint and integrated LED front
and rear fog lamps provide a premium appearance. Overall, Chevrolet
Trailblazer looks agile and athletic from outside and is unmistakably
