CHEVROLET Phils. has introduced a new variant to its popular SUV range. Called the Chevrolet Trailblazer 2.8L LTX, the vehicle is fitted with 18-inch alloy wheels, leather seats, a reversing camera with rear sensors and other features.
Chevrolet Phils. launched the Trailblazer in 2012, marking the company’s entry into the country’s midsize SUV segment.
Chevrolet Phils. said the model’s “robust and rugged looks, matched with a spacious cabin, class-leading engine and superior on- and off-road driving dynamics,” have helped it capture a “significant niche in the local market.” The company bared it sold 2,211 Trailblazers from January to June this year, adding that the model is ranked third in the country’s midsize SUV segment.
The Trailblazer 2.8L LTX is powered by the second-generation Duramax, 2.8-liter, turbocharged, diesel engine that produces 200hp at 3,600rpm and 500Nm of torque at 2,000rpm. These ratings make the Trailblazer the most powerful in its class, according to Chevrolet.
The Trailblazer 2.8L LTX is equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission with Active Select, which Chevrolet said has retuned ratios to take advantage of the improved Duramax engine’s capacity. This provides the Trailblazer with the best performance and fuel economy.
Complementing the model’s 18-inch alloys are flared wheel arches, a power dome hood, Chevrolet’s signature dual-port grille, new black B-pillars and black polyurethane license plate frames. The new enhancements draw out the appearance of the vehicle’s glasshouse frame, resulting in the Trailblazer LTX’s upgraded and sportier profile, Chevrolet said.
It added that the Trailblazer 2.8L LTX also has Camaro-inspired, blue LED illuminated gauges. Beige leather covers the car’s seven “theater-styled” seats.
The Trailblazer 2.8L LTX is priced at P1,588,888.
