THE 7-seater Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) segment has seen tremendous growth over the past few years and this has prompted almost every local carmaker to jump into the ring and put forth their offerings.
In October 2012, The Covenant Car Co. Inc. (TCCCI), exclusive importer and distributor of Chevrolet vehicles and parts in the Philippines, officially offered a contender at the highly competitive 7-seater mid-size SUV with the All-New Chevrolet Trailblazer.
This is a totally different model from the Trailblazer of the past. As Chevrolet Philippines President and Managing Director Atty. Albert Arcilla put it, “We, at Chevrolet Philippines — TCCCI along with our 18 enthusiastic dealer partners nationwide, believes that the All-New Trailblazer is another winner in the Chevrolet line up. With a price that starts at P1,368,888, this vehicle will positively change the way one would look at the mid-size Diesel engine SUV.”
Sculpted, muscular and sophisticated look
It all starts with powerful yet refined exterior styling. The All-New Chevrolet Trailblazer greets you with the signature dual-port Chevrolet grille, flanked by projector-type headlamps, and topped off by a power-dome hood design that evoke attractive ruggedness. These design cues are further enhanced by the standard 18-inch wheels and tires, and flush roof rails that likewise add to cargo versatility. Finishing things off are LED tail lamps that help save energy and look good while doing so.
The inside story
While the exterior may exude a certain rugged appeal, the interior is a totally different story. The 7-seater SUV cocoons its occupants with spacious and comfortable seating clad in leather for that upscale touch. These seven seats, specifically the second- and third-row seats, can be configured in multitude of ways for true cargo flexibility—making it the perfect vehicle for family outings, trips to the mall or grocery shopping, or even a business-hauler. Wherever your Trailblazer may take you, time on the road will be more enjoyable—thanks to an audio system that can be controlled via steering wheel-mounted controls, and is fully compatible with all your digital toys and gadgets through USB, AUX input, Ipod compatibility and Bluetooth.
Power and performance to suit your lifestyle
The Philippine-spec models come with a pair of Duramax diesel engines with Variable Geometry Turbocharger (VGT) and Common Rail Direct Injection (CRDI) for utmost power and fuel economy.
The powerful engines are complemented by the All-New Trailblazer 4×4 variant’s electronic 4-wheel drive shift mode that allows shifting on-the-fly, should Dad and the boys suddenly get the urge to go on those off-the-beaten-track adventures. Further peace of mind is provided by its 800mm wading depth—perfect for braving our perennially flood-prone environs.
