TrailBlazer of second generation is assembled in Thailand, and has recently started a production line St. Petersburg. But this car still remains a purely overseas classics with its spar frame, beam axle and rigid connection of all-wheel drive Twister selector. It was adapted from Colorado pickup with the rear suspension being modified by new levers.
Interior is as same as exterior. A thin steering wheel of a large diameter, retractable cup holders have a fist size, and it’s much more convenient to put walkie-talkie in them rather than an opened can of cola. In modern standards new interior design takes a place somewhere between “all-time classics” and “let them be, they don’t want to change anything”.
Engine line was added with a new 3.6 litre and 2.8 litre Duramax diesels with a variable geometry turbine. They have 330 and 440 N/m of torque, respectively. Diesel version with six-speed automatic transmission has even higher torque peak - 470 N/m. You push the gas pedal stronger and get more power, simple as that. As for other options, 180-hp powered engine with 2.8 liters is as quiet and easy as the two modifications from the above, if not better than them.
New TrailBlazer is a tractor in a best way possible. When you leave the city roads and get to a free way you can hear your engine roar like a lion and are free to test its abilities. And is there something wrong in a tractor with air-conditioning system, Bluetooth and Euro-4 with a capacity to accommodate seven grown ups?
Second generation of Chevrolet Trailblazer became much more friendly towards the driver. And a bit more technically advanced, if that’s even possible. The car is equipped with HSA and HDC assistants, is able to brake softly on turn thanks to a CBA system and transforms any trip into a nice driving experience. As huge and manly as it looks, second generation of Chevrolet Trailblazer takes care of you like a mother would, so if you’re looking for a nice and reliable vehicle for your family, this one’s a best choice you could make.
