2013 Chevrolet Trailblazer
All-New Chevrolet Trailblazer Makes World Debut in Thailand
BANGKOK -- The Trailblazer, Chevrolet's tough new "haul-anything,
go-anywhere" SUV, made its world debut today at a special event ahead of
The 33rd Bangkok International Motor Show in Thailand.
First previewed in concept form at last year's Dubai International Motor
Show in the Middle East, the Trailblazer will go on sale around the world,
beginning with Thailand in June.
Based on General Motors' new global body-on-frame midsize truck
architecture, the Trailblazer was designed to feature premium ride comfort
and handling dynamics for urban and highway driving, matched by superior
Inside, the all-new Trailblazer features leading interior space and
intuitive three-row tumble and fold-flat seating, representing Chevrolet's
most significant play in the competitive body-on-frame midsize SUV segment.
Available in two- and four-wheel-drive configurations, the Trailblazer is
powered by GM's new four-cylinder Duramax turbo-diesel engines that offer class-leading
power and torque matched with efficiency and refinement.
Martin Apfel, president, GM Southeast Asia and Chevrolet Sales Thailand,
said the introduction of the new Trailblazer, which will be built at GM
Thailand's manufacturing facility in Rayong, will Boost Chevrolet's presence in the world's
fast-growing SUV markets.
"True to its name, the Trailblazer will blaze the trail for new Chevrolet
vehicles coming into the market. It has been built tough to offer Chevrolet
customers everything they need from a heavy-duty SUV," he said.
Designed for family transport and urban commuting, the Trailblazer is
equally at home negotiating off-road terrain as it is with urban traffic
and highway cruising," Apfel added. "It will hit the sweet spot, not just
for consumers in Thailand and throughout Southeast Asia, but in every place
around the world where it will be sold."
The Trailblazer was developed in tandem with the all-new Chevrolet Colorado
midsize pickup truck by a highly skilled team of GM engineers, who used
their expertise to add passenger vehicle attributes to the midsize truck
Team members lived in Thailand during the development of both vehicles,
immersing themselves in the highly competitive truck and SUV market and
observing how Thais use their vehicles and the driving conditions they
experience. The insights gathered led to the development of Trailblazer
models covering two specification levels: the mid-level LT and the
Powertrain and Transmission
The Trailblazer will be powered by GM's all-new family of Duramax
four-cylinder turbo-diesel engines,
featuring 2.5L and 2.8L displacements. The engines incorporate a host of
technologies aimed at delivering an optimal balance of power, performance
and fuel economy.
The range-topping 2.8L variant features a variable-geometry turbocharger for optimal power and efficiency
across the engine's revolution band, and a balancer-shaft for greater
smoothness. Both engines feature components designed to last for 240,000
kilometers, enhancing durability and reliability while contributing to
lower cost of ownership.
A choice of two drivetrains will be offered -- a five-speed manual
transmission and a six-speed automatic featuring electronic shift-control
with clutch-to-clutch capability and an electro-hydraulic control module.
The 2.8-liter engine is rated at 180 horsepower (132 kW) and 346
lb.-ft. of torque (470 Nm) with an available six-speed automatic
transmission (324 lb.-ft. / 440 Nm with a five-speed manual). The 2.5-liter
engine is rated at 150 horsepower (110 kW) and 258
lb.-ft. of torque (350 Nm).
Additional powertrains for specific markets will be announced later.

2015 Chevrolet Colorado Z71 -- PickupTrucks.com Video Review
We had the chance to spend a little time with the new 2015 Chevy Colorado
Z71 off-road package, and we liked what we saw. This isn't a perfect
midsize pickup, but it's a solid entry into a segment that's been ignored
too long. Many of the design and engineering lessons learned from the 2014
Silverado 1500 have been incorporated into the Colorado, which should play
into its favor. Take a look.
