GM Introduces the 2013 Chevrolet TrailBlazer

by on March 22, 2012

General Motors introduced its rugged 2013 Chevy TrailBlazer at the Bangkok International Motor Show in Thailand this Wednesday. The new heavy-duty SUV will go on sale worldwide starting in June.

When designing the 2013 Chevy TrailBlazer, GM used a new global body-on frame midsize truck architecture. This TrailBlazer promises comfort, superior handling, and effective performance in the city, on the highway, and while off-roading.

The TrailBlazer’s structure was inspired by the popular Chevy Colorado pickup. Engineers simply added passenger vehicle elements to the pickup architecture to create the TrailBlazer.

The 2013 TrailBlazer comes with two engine choices using four-cylinder turbodiesels. The 2.5-liter engine produces 150 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque while the larger 2.8-liter engine pumps out 180 hp and 346 lb-ft of twist. Two trim options are available, including the basic LT and more advanced LTZ.

Seven passengers can fit comfortably inside the 2013 Chevy TrailBlazer. The car comes with folding seats in the second and third row. GM describes the TrailBlazer as mixing car-like interior features with the boldness of an SUV. Along with comfort and style, the TrailBlazer also has an impressive list of safety features, including hill descent control, air bags, panic brake assist, engine drag control, rear drive brake, and more.
