GM has no plans to offer the Chevy Trailblazer in North America — a decision that we make out to be a real shame. But that’s neither here nor there. More to the point, however, is this photo taken at the 2012 Australian International Motor Show.
According to GM Authority reader Matt B., the man in this photo stands 6 feet 4 inches (1.93 meters) tall — and, as you can see, the top of his head is touching the boot lid of the Holden Colorado 7 (read: Australia’s Chevy TrailBlazer).
The GM Authority Take
We don’t see a problem here. The fact is that the man is (abnormally?) tall… and a little bit of crouching here and there never hurt anyone. And what would the man do if the boot in question were to a car-based hatchback or wagon, such as those that are part of the Cruze line? Having driven plenty of wagons and crossovers, we find that a slight crouch is all it takes even for someone like yours truly (who is three or four inches below six feet in height) to get under the boot lid.
So, do you consider this a flaw in design and ergonomics — or is this much ado about nothing? Vote in the poll and then sound off in the comments below!
