We have been driving the Chevrolet Trailblazer for some time now. This big brawny SUV sits in the Rs 25-30 lakh price bracket, competing with the likes of the Ford Endeavor, Mitsubishi Pajero Sport and the Toyota Fortuner. Before we put out our elaborate drive experience of the Chevrolet Trailblazer, here is a list of things that we liked/disliked about the Trailblazer.
The design of the Chevrolet Trailblazer has to be the strongest highlight. It has loads of muscular appeal. The Trailblazer measures a mighty 4,878mm in length, 2,132mm in width and 1,851mm in height. It has a wheelbase of 2,845mm. Yes! It is bigger than your Fortuner.
We have to mention about the capability of this mammoth like SUV. It has a ground clearance of 253mm. Yes! again more than the present generation Fortuner. And this comes handy when you are crawling on the untrodden path
We have already seen how the dimensions of the Chevrolet Trailblazer is more than its competition. This translates into more, more and more space. It doesn’t matter how huge you are, the cabin of Trailblazer will make you feel diminutive.
There are a host of features in the Chevrolet Trailblazer which includes Electronic Stability Control, Anti-lock Braking System, Cornering Brake Control, Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, Hill Start Assist, Hill Descent Control System and Traction Control System. It also has loads of convenience and comfort options.
Engine and transmission
We have started to like the 2.8-litre motor despite its lazy response in the lower revs. Take it on long roads and you will change your opinion. However, the only bit that we disliked about the Chevrolet Trailblazer has to be its 6-speed automatic transmission. It doesn’t do justice in whipping all the 200 horses. Even in manual mode, it lacks enthusiasm.
