The refreshed 2024 Chevy Trailblazer was officially revealed on February 8th. Four months after its United States debut, General Motors has just presented the first teaser of the updated crossover in South Korea.
The automaker’s South Korean subsidiary unveiled the first teaser image of the refreshed 2024 Chevy Trailblazer, anticipating the imminent debut of the updated nameplate in the Asian country – the domestic market and main manufacturing center of Chevrolet‘s subcompact crossover. In fact, the company reports that the commercial launch of the 2024 Trailblazer in South Korea will take place on July 19th.
In particular, the first teaser for the refreshed 2024 Chevy Trailblazer revealed by GM Korea shows a partial view of the model’s grille with a gloss black painted mesh pattern – corresponding to the sporty looking RS trim level. The unit is also seen to be painted in the new Cacti Green body color, which was announced as one of the new features for the 2024 model-year Trailblazer.
As we’ve previously reported, the main exterior changes to the refreshed 2024 Chevy Trailblazer include a redesigned front end design with a prominent grille and stronger traits, as well as headlamps with new lighting signatures. In addition, it boasts a completely updated interior with a central module that includes a new 11-inch infotainment screen as standard, along with an 8-inch digital instrument panel.
Nothing changes under the hood, with two powertrain options consisting of the standard turbocharged 1.2L I3 LIH engine that develops 137 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque, along with the optional turbocharged 1.3L I3 L3T with 155 horsepower and 174 pound-feet. Both engines are mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission on front-wheel drive units, while the 1.3L motor connects to GM’s nine-speed automatic transmission in AWD variants.
The refreshed 2024 Chevy Trailblazer will officially launch on July 19th in South Korea, during a special event at the company’s recently opened The House of GM in Seoul. The arrival of the mid-cycle update will mark a fresh start for the Trailblazer in the South Korean market, where its early success was marred by the COVID-19 pandemic and the semiconductor crisis.
