2017 facelifted Chevrolet Trailblazer facelift spied, comes with revised exterior and interior
Earlier this week we have reported that the 2017 Chevrolet Trailblazer facelift have been imported to India for R & D purpose. Now a heavily camouflaged test mule of the car has been spotted testing on Indian roads near Pune for the first time, which suggests the launch of the car is imminent in the country. Earlier it was speculated that the muscular looking car would be launched in India sometime around mid 2017, but as it seems the company plans to launch it earlier.
The American automaker first unveiled the new Trailblazer at the 2016 Bangkok Motor Show, which was christened as Trailblazer Premiere, and that gave us the preview of the upcoming car. Later in Brazil the production version of the car was displayed, which retained the design updates we have seen in the Bangkok Motor Show.
Talking about the design updates, the 2017 Chevrolet Trailblazer sports an all new front fascia, which features chrome garnished two part front grille, new LED daytime running lights integrated headlamp clusters, revised bumper, new larger fog lamps.
Altogether these updates deliver a more aggressive, muscular and sporty vibe compare to the dull design of the outgoing model. The updates remain limited at the front albeit, as side and rear profile is identical to the outgoing model.
The updates are visible inside the cabin in form of a revised instrument cluster and centre console. New Trailblazer features an 8 inch MyLink touchscreen infotainment system, flanked by vertically slated and silver accented AC vents. So far the interior of the facelifted model looks more premium compare to the outgoing model.
Despite being cosmetically revamped, on the mechanical front the 2017 Trailblazer facelift is expected to remain same. It would draw power from the same 2.8 litre DuraMax turbocharged diesel engine paired with 6 speed automatic gearbox, churning out 200 PS of peak power and 500 Nm of peak torque. The facelifted model would don a 4WD layout, which were not present in the old model.
