Original TrailBlazer was introduced in 2002 as replacement for the S10 Blazer. This model was in production until 2009, when it was replaced with new, front-wheel drive model called Traverse. New, seven passenger 2015 Chevrolet Trailblazer was introduced in 2012 Bangkok Auto Show. Although this Thai-made model is available in many countries such as Brazil, South Africa, Thailand and Philippines, it wasn’t planed to hit U.S. market. However, there have been some rumors that Chevrolet still going to offer this model on the U.S. market too. Officially, Chevrolet spokesman denied any possibility of expanding their current offer. According to officials, they are pleased with the way Equinox, Traverse and Tahoe/Suburban are performing in the marketplace.
2015 Chevrolet Trailblazer will be produced in USA?
However, some reliable sources told us that this SUV/Crossover will surely available in the USA market. The 2015 Chevy Trailblazer will be ready for sale in 2014. Still, it is unknown where the U.S. version of this mid-size crossover will produce. Is it going to be a Thai-made Trailblazer or it is going to be U.S. made? Wherever they will produce this model, it will share the platform of Chevrolet’s midsize pickup truck Colorado which was designed in General Motors do Brasil and jointly engineered with Japan car maker Isuzu. This pickup will be produced in U.S. and it will be introduced next year as 2015 model along with its cousin GMC Canyon.
This seven passenger SUV is available both in petrol and diesel variant. Customers also can choose between all-wheel drive and rear wheel drive configuration. It is a combination of SUV’s utility and Crossover’s efficiency and comfort.
Time will definitely tell us whether any of this was true. Opinions of experts are that there is space for one more U.S. made SUV/Crossover, especially when we take into account that General Motors ended production of the previous generation Canyon and Colorado pickup trucks.
