Could 2018 Trailblazer Come Back to North America?

By

The 2018 Chevy Trailblazer is a popular SUV and has sold well for Chevy over the years. However, in an ever increasing market, Chevy are hoping to open up the market and take a larger share; many customers tend to stick with one brand or model over multiple vehicle purchases, Chevy hope to tap into the other brands and win some new customers.

Whether the redesigned Trailblazer will be enough to do that, no one really knows, but at least we have a new model from Chevy to look forward to.

Under the hood, we’re not going to see a 6.2 liter V8 gas engine, with 460 BHP and 465 lb/ft of torque. More likely there will be one of the Chevy’s V6 engines – 3.6L producing around 280 HP and possibly a 4-cylinder turbocharged engine as a standard.
There are rumors of a diesel motor.

Now, we know that generally, America doesn’t like diesel power, but in this case, a big diesel motor would work well, giving plenty of low down torque – easily 550 + ft/lb. We don’t know what transmission options will be fitted at the moment, but no doubt it’ll be auto (helps with the economy) and it will drive all four wheels.

release date of car Release date expected in late 2017 or early 2018
car price The starting price is under $30,000
car drive layout Rear-wheel drive with front axle connection (on demand)
car engine type 3.6L V6 enigne producing around 280 HP
car top speed 118 MPH of top speed (limited)
fuel consumption rating Around 21 MPG in a combined cycle

On the outside, the Trailblazer will get updated styling, mainly centering around the hood, front fenders and grille; the grille will be oversize with a large Chevrolet logo bang in the middle of it – definitely no mistaking the brand. The headlamps will also be redesigned and updated; using xenon lighting with LED technology, this will also be the same for the rear lighting.

Release date and Price of 2018 Chevy Trailblazer

Not a huge amount of information has been released by Chevrolet regarding the new 2018 Chevrolet Trailblazer, but we expect to see it hit the USA showrooms in the last quarter of 2017 or in early 2018.

This is where there is a lot of speculation, some rumors have the new Chevy Trailblazer 2018 starting as low as $30,000, but we think it’s going to be in the $40,000 + bracket.

Modern and Sleek Styling

As we’ve already stated, Chevy want to try and win more customers from the other marques, to do this, they are upgrading the Trailblazer to make it look a little more modern and slightly aggressive; that seems to be the recipe for good sales of these vehicles.

Summary

The new updated Trailblazer is a good value for money, but the current generation is unavailable for the US. The 2018 model year SUV might break this rule.
