In the shadow of the monolithic Burj Khalifa in the city of Dubai, Chevrolet finally pulled the curtain off the all-new 2013 Chevrolet Trailblazer. Though if you paid attention yesterday, you may have already seen some quick snapshots of the show car. Yes, it is a show car, but we expect very little subtraction from its current form.
Despite the car being revealed in the United Arab Emirates, it will be Thailand to receive the SUV first when it launches in 2012. It makes sense, as the all-new Chevrolet Colorado is currently being built in that country, and both vehicles share the same GMI700 body-on-frame architecture. Additionally, the 2013 TrailBlazer was presented to the media with a 346 pound-foot 2.8L Duramax diesel engine under the hood, and both the second and third rows of seats fold flat.
Currently, GM insists that there are no plans to launch the utilitarian diesel TrailBlazer in the realm of the American market. But we totally believe there is room for the new SUV here. What do you think?
