General Motors India is coming up with all new 2017 Chevrolet Trailblazer Premiere and our scoopmeister was ace enough to get first images of this SUV being tested in Hinjewadi traffic signal. The car was full camouflaged and our scoopmeister was really not sure which car it is but he got almost all images and thought he will later figure out with the help of you, the readers which car it is. By the time scoopmeister was clicking pictures of the car, the GM driver was found with GM uniform boasting big GM logo with a girl inside and we are not really sure about why? He was arrogant enough to abuse our photographer for clicking the pictures.
Well, that’s apart, we are more interested in all new 2017 Chevrolet Trailblazer than the arrogant driver and the girl sitting with him in the test car. The all new SUV was imported in June 2016 in India from Thailand for homologation purpose and the version we spotted was 2.8 liter 2 wheel drive LTZ. The car develops 200bhp and 500Nm of power and torque numbers. The test car spotted was 2 wheel drive with 6 speed automatic gearbox.
The new 2017 Chevrolet Trailblazer SUV made its first appearance in the moth of May in Brazil, right after the concept version showcase in Bangkok Motor show in March 2016. As the car is here, it looks like the company plans to go ahead for the launch late this year or early next year.
In terms of looks, the car now gets a newly designed flatter bonnet and new headlamps with stylish DRLs. The front grille is now smaller compared to its current version and has lot of chrome added for premium looks. On the rear end, tail lamps are well integrated with LEDs flaunting with similar shape of current model.
Major changes found in 2017 Chevrolet Trailblazer’s cabin, that now gets an all new dashboard and black and beige interior trim. New instrument cluster, new square shaped infotainment system with My link, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The test car was spotted with chrome surrounded AC vents.
It is interesting to know that the imported car pricing was around 7 lakh and even if we add 120% duty on it considering CBU, the price will not go more than 16 Lakh. But, if the company plans to bring this beast in India via CKD route, the landed price will be in the range of 10-12 lakhs. It will be interesting to know the pricing of this car in India when the company launches it officially. Watch this space for more updates about the car.
