Chevrolet has officially taken the covers off the 2016 Trailblazer facelift. This substantially upgraded version of the luxury SUV was earlier shown as a near-production concept at the Bangkok Motor Show earlier this year. Now, the Trailblazer facelift is ready to go on sale in Brazil in both petrol and diesel versions. It will eventually be sold in other markets including India.

The 2016 Trailblazer’s design is a lot neater now, with the revised front-end featuring interestingly detailed headlights with DRLs and twin radiator grilles. The rear-end though is more or less the same and overall, the Trailblazer continues to carry a powerful stance our on the road.

The interior is fairly new and is brimming with better quality materials. The design and layout isn’t particularly striking however there is no shortage of space and comfort in here for up to seven occupants. In the top-spec LTZ trim, the dashboard is dominated by an 8-inch infotainment system with MyLink tech that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

In Brazil, the Trailblazer facelift will get two engine options – a 2.8-litre Duramax diesel unit that makes 200bhp of power and 500Nm of torque and a much bigger 3.6-litre V6 petrol engine that develops 279bhp of power and 357Nm of torque. Both these engines are mated to a 6-speed automatic gearbox.

The Chevrolet Trailblazer will go on sale in Brazil later this month, followed by other markets later this year. In India, the Trailblazer competes in the highly popular full-size luxury space where you have cars like the Toyota Fortuner and the latest-gen Ford Endeavour.
