Nine months after the regional launch of the refreshed 2021 Chevy TrailBlazer SUV in Brazil, the country that supplies it to South America, General Motors has just introduced the midsize utility latest model year in Chile, which is the fastest growing automotive market in the region. The updated Chevy TrailBlazer further strengthens the automaker’s wide range of SUVs and crossovers in the Chilean market.
The 2021 Chevy TrailBlazer SUV complements the brand’s portfolio in Chile as a more robust model, with the capacity to transport large families with three rows of seats. In fact, the TrailBlazer is the ninth member of Chevrolet’s extensive range of utility vehicles in the South American country, suited for each customer profile. The range also includes the Groove, Tracker, Spin Activ, Captiva, Traverse, Blazer, Tahoe and Suburban.
“Without a doubt, the refreshed Chevrolet TrailBlazer is a model with a more adventurous profile to transform the SUV segment in a more off-road-oriented format,” said Sales Director of GM Chile, Gustavo Colossi, in a press release. “It does so by delivering innovative technology, safety, design and space that make it a benchmark in its category,” he added.
As in Brazil, Argentina and other countries in the region, the updated 2021 Chevy TrailBlazer SUV is offered in the Chilean market with one trim level, the uplevel Premier. This new variant replaces the previous LTZ with a higher level of standard features and a front-end design featuring the prominent CHEVROLET lettering that the TrailBlazer inherited from the High Country variant of its Chevy S10 relative.
The refreshed Chevy TrailBlazer SUV arrives in Chile with the well-known Duramax turbo-diesel 2.8L XLD28 four-cylinder engine that develops 200 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque, combined exclusively with a six-speed automatic transmission. The refreshed TrailBlazer comes standard with a shift-on-the-fly 4×4 drivetrain in the country, maximizing its off-road capabilities.
The 2021 Chevy TrailBlazer SUV goes on sale in the Chilean market in early June, and will also debut the latest generation of Chevrolet’s infotainment system as well as the latest iteration of OnStar telematics. The starting price of the TrailBlazer in Chile is set at 27,490,000 CLP, which amounts to about $38,060 USD at the current exchange rate. Its main rivals are the Toyota Fortuner and the Mitsubishi Montero Sport.
