As per the reports, the SUV is built on a new platform and that has made it different from other SUV. This platform has a specialty that it makes the car much sturdy and thus it is able to tackle any terrain.

This engine has a maximum power output capacity of 255 hp and that too at very low rpms. The diesel heart will be a 2.8 L which has a peak power output of 180 hp. Measuring over 4.8 m the big sized SUV promises an altogether different SUV touch. Equipped with ABS, traction control and electronic brakeforce distribution system, the SUV is safe and can handle any terrain with ease.
Apart from this, the Trailblazer has cruise control for perfect control on the road and sliding sunroof to keep the interiors fresh and to keep the occupants near to nature. The seats have heating facility and are power operated to keep them at the right position. In India, the Trailblazer will be positioned under the Chevrolet Captiva SUV and is expected to take the advantage of being in segment where there are major chunk of SUV buyers.
