Chevrolet’s All-New TrailBlazer SUV Breaks Cover in Dubai

Press Release

“TrailBlazer delivers a great combination of capabilities, from negotiating off-road trails to daily city driving, that we wanted to convey visually,” said Matt Noone, director of design for GM do Brasil. “There's an obvious sense of muscle in the design, but at the same time a very sophisticated appearance in line with the world's premium SUVs. From every angle, TrailBlazer looks agile and athletic, with a refined finish that makes it a vehicle our customers will aspire to own.”

Interior — Spacious, Refined and Flexible
Signature Chevrolet cues continue inside, conveying spaciousness, flexibility and an upscale appearance in all control interfaces.

With a flowing instrument panel, integrated center stack, and signature Chevrolet dual cockpit design, the interior of the all-new TrailBlazer combines car-like characteristics with the boldness expected of a true SUV. The seven-passenger interior offers intuitive three-row tumble and/or fold-flat seat versatility and best-in-class spaciousness in the third row.

“We made the seating both flexible and intuitive. There's no need to pull out the owner's manual to figure out how to configure the seats,” Noone said. “The third row in this SUV isn't an afterthought. It's an authentic third row where people can sit comfortably for long trips. Combine that with luxurious interior appointments and it is easy to see why TrailBlazer really is an all-purpose vehicle.”

Additional interior details include:

  • An overhead console that integrates the HVAC system with onboard infotainment;
  • Second row 60/40 split seats with single latch forward gravity tumble, fold-flat capability, and six-degree seat-back reclining along with integrated folding armrests with cup holders;
  • Third row 50/50 split seats with center console storage and fold-flat capability;
  • Flat floor storage from the front row rearward when all seats are folded flat, which is designed to provide extreme load capability;
  • Auxiliary power plug with USB and Bluetooth connectivity.

Contrasting trim used with the light-colored leather seating, mat dark wood trim accented with chrome, and dual-grained surfaces used on the upper and lower IP provide a premium feel. A number of storage compartments are located throughout the interior, including a covered center bin for concealment of valuable items, and a large, dual glovebox.

Other features include a dual-zone, digital climate control system and the latest in infotainment technology.

  1. No word on whether GM will build this midsize SUV alongside the Colorado in the US as well as Thailand and Brazil, however since it is essentially just another Colorado body-style (a wagon to join the single-cab, extended-cab and crew-cab), even minimal sales would justify the investment. This is a nice truck and should do well against the Pathfinder, 4Runner, Land Cruiser Prado etc. If they can sell a mere 3,000 a month in the US that could add more than 50% to mid-truck production volumes in Wentzville.

  2. Aside from Thailand and the Middle East confirmed markets so far include Australia, where it will be sold as he Holden Colorado 7. Other Asian markets are likely, as are Russia, South Africa and most markets in South America.
