Chevrolet Thailand has debuted two new model variations of their Captiva and Trailblazer SUVs at the 2014 Thailand International Motor Expo. The new Captiva Sport Edition will serve as the range-topping Captiva model in the region, while the Urban Package for the Trailblazer adds additional technology to the SUV.
The Captiva Sport Edition equips the Captiva with a rear view backup camera, which displays its field of vision on a 7-inch color touch screen. Also standard are LED daytime running lights, a sport lip kit and spoiler, Sport Edition decals and side-steps. Other options found in lower Captiva variants, such as Passive Entry and Passive Start, are standard on the Sport Edition, too.
All powertrain options offered in the Captiva remain the same when stepping up to the Sport Edition. The equipment group is available with the entry-level 2.4-liter four-cylinder gas engine, which churns out 167 horsepower and 169 lb-ft of torque, or an optional 2.0-liter diesel four with 163 horsepower and 295 lb-ft. The sole transmission option is a six-speed automatic.
Trailblazers equipped with the Urban Package receive ceiling-mounted TV displays for rear passengers, a DVD player, a rear-view camera and daytime running lights. A new 2.8-liter Duramax four-cylinder is available, which produces 200 horsepower and 368 lb-ft. The entry-level engine option is a 2.5-liter Duramax with 163 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque.
Prices for the Captiva Sport Edition start at 1,610,000 THB ($49,145 USD) for gasoline variants. Pricing for Urban Package Trailblazers has yet to be announced.
