Chevrolet had heavily previewed the 2017 Trailblazer in the Trailblazer Premier concept during the Bangkok Motor Show this year, but the real thing is upon us.
The brand took the wraps off the 2017 Chevrolet Trailblazer for international markets at the Big Motor Show 2016 in Bangkok, Thailand, showcasing a much more premium side to the SUV; premium SUVs and trucks will also be a strategy for GM as it moves forward in the ASEAN region.
“The all-new Trailblazer not just underlines our focus on trucks and SUVs in Thailand, but is proof of our commitment to bring the best SUVs to our Thai customers. It is truly a premium product, and will cement our position in the SUV segment.”
The 2017 Trailblazer arrived with a modest refresh of its exterior styling, which includes a reworked front clip with an up-to-date take on the traditional Chevrolet corporate face. The design remains rugged looking but has certainly softened in the name of luxury. Inside, more premium materials are abundant, as well as plenty of technology.
Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Alert, Forward Collision Alert, Front & Rear Parking Assist, Tire Pressure Monitoring System, Trailer Sway Control, Anti-Rolling Protection and a driver’s knee airbag are just a handful of new options customers may choose from in the 2017 Trailblazer.
“With the all-new Trailblazer, we are redefining the word ‘premium’ in the SUV segment. We redesigned the exterior and interior, focusing on comfort, spaciousness, refinement and technology. You have to drive it to believe it,” Una Tan, Director of Marketing and Customer Experience, Chevrolet Sales Thailand, said.
And Aussies should take note, too; the 2017 Chevrolet Trailblazer will also make the pilgrimage to Australian shores as the 2017 Holden Trailblazer, retiring the Colorado 7 nameplate.
