Chevrolet has unveiled the updated 2016 Trailblazer SUV at the ongoing Bangkok Motor Show 2016. The carmaker was testing the updated model since a few months across various international locations.
The 2016 Trailblazer’s appearance from the front is flatter and more angular than the pre-facelfited car, which had a more rounded look. The SUV gets major changes to its front with an all-new bonnet, restyled headlamps, a more upright grille with a striking Chevy bowtie logo taking centre stage and front bumper with prominent slots for round fog lamps.
There are subtle touches of chrome across the grille and front bumper. The overall side profile remains mostly the same as the current car, however the new Trailblazer will come with new-design alloy wheels. The 2016 Trailblazer’s rear styling remains similar to the current model, however the tail-lamps do get new inserts along with a mildly tweaked bumper.
The updated Trailblazer gets all-new dashboard and a slightly larger infotainment system that now supports Apple CarPlay as well. The instrument binnacle is a more simpler unit that replaces the squarish retro gauges seen on the pre-facelift model.
Powering the facelifted Trailblazer is the same 197bhp, 2.8-litre Duramax turbocharged diesel motor available on the SUV for India. Foreign markets receive a more powerful 275bhp, 3.6-litre V6 petrol engine. In addition to this, a 200bhp, 2.5-litre EcoTec petrol engine will be offered in select markets.
The updated Trailblazer will go on sale in its home market, Thailand later this year. Given that the SUV was launched in India only recently, it is safe to assume that the facelift won’t make it to our shores until next year.
