Adopting the models North American name (Chevrolet Trailblazer), the Holden Trailblazer will take over from the Holde Colorado 7 when it arrives later this year in Australia.
Interestingly, Holden recently used the ‘Trailblazer’ name on a special edition version of the Colorado 7.
The 2017 Chevrolet Trailblazer was revealed in Brazil, where it sports plenty of design cues from the Chevrolet Trailblazer Premier concept, which was shown in Bangkok two months ago. More premium interior materials, refined exterior design, but rugged capability are present, along with the most up-to-date technology and safety features.
“We understand the vehicle will be mostly used by families and those expecting a more premium experience so, when working with the Brazilian homeroom, we’ve focused on reducing noise and vibration as well as ride isolation, to give customers a comfortable cabin environment,” said Holden’s Lead Dynamics Engineer, Rob Trubiani.
The Australian carmaker did not provide details on the powertrain, but the 2017 Trailblazer is expected to continue with the same 147kW (197hp) and 500Nm (369 lb-ft) 2.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder diesel as the outgoing Colorado 7.
