Its financial troubles mostly behind it now, General Motors is making inroads into markets aside from China, Europe, and the U.S. One perfect example was the introduction of the new 2013 Chevrolet TrailBlazer SUV in Thailand ahead of this week’s Bangkok International Motor Show.
Clad in a visibly more aggressive styling, the new Chevrolet TrailBlazer is base on GM’s new global midsize truck chassis design, which provides characteristics for both road driving and off road capabilities. In highlighting the raising cost of fuel, GM outfitted the Chevrolet TrailBlazer with the new Duramax four-cylinder turbo-diesel engines. In either 2.5-liter or 2.8-liter displacements, with the abilities to generate 150 horsepower or 180 horsepower, yet still with the fuel efficiency of a typical diesel engine.
Known more for its utilitarian style, the Chevrolet TrailBlazer comes in a three-row seating format with 60/40 spilt seats on the second and a 50/50 split on the third row. Other features include Bluetooth connectivity, USB ports, and auxiliary power outlets.
