The Chevrolet Trailblazer, though awarded, hasn’t reached best-seller status in the Indian market, moving just 48 units of the SUV in the past nine months, according to MSN Autos. That’s mostly the result of competitors like the Ford Endeavor and Mitsubishi Pajero substantially undercutting the Trailblazer in price.
Chevrolet has countered by cutting the Trailblazer’s price from Rs 28.09 to 24.90, or from roughly $41,000 USD to $37,000 USD, at current exchange rates.
Also not helping sales of the midsize SUV is the fact that the Trailblazer lacks a four-wheel drive option in India, thereby putting it at a disadvantage to its locally-assembled rivals.
An updated Chevrolet Trailblazer will be introduced in India in the coming months following its reveal at in Bangkok, Thailand. That same vehicle will make its way to Australia as the Holden Trailblazer, replacing the outgoing Holden Colorado 7.
