Sayang Chevy Trailblazer 1.3T Ini Tidak Akan Datang Ke Malaysia

Ia memerlukan banyak duit dan kesabaran untuk memulihkan jenama ini di Malaysia.

Chevy Trailblazer 1.3T

Memperkenalkan Chevrolet Trailblazer 2021 baharu yang agak padat. Ya, Trailblazer sebelum ini adalah SUV yang lebih besar dengan penampilan yang lebih gagah dan nampaknya Chevrolet melancarkan papan nama yang popular ini untuk memberikan saingan kepada SUV Jepun yang laris di ASIA.

Dengan tiada penjaga jenama Chevrolet di Malaysia sekarang (tiga penjaga jenama pada masa lalu telah datang dan pergi di Malaysia) SUV 1.3T baharu ini tidak akan dilihat di jalan raya kita. Sayang sekali kerana enjin kapasiti kecil SUV ini boleh laku dengan kenaikan harga minyak dan tarikan kepada nama dan jenama Chevy masih wujud di Malaysia.

Tetapi, mungkin tidak, kerana penguasaan Geely dan Proton yang semakin meningkat dengan pemasang tempatan yang baru dilancarkan Proton X70 dan tidak lama lagi ketibaan di Proton X50 (nama yang belum disahkan kerana ini akan menjadi Geely Coolray yang titukar lencana), Chevrolet ini mungkin tidak mampu mendapatkan pelanggan yang cukup untuk ada kes perniagaan di Malaysia.

PRESS RELEASE: Like Chevrolet’s latest line of SUVs, the Trailblazer features a bold front fascia and sports car-inspired rear design. The ACTIV trim package amplifies this sporty style with a two-tone roof, unique front and rear fascia and dual exhaust, along with sport terrain tires and suspension tuning enhancements.

“Slotting between the Trax and Equinox, the addition of the Trailblazer provides us with a great opportunity to expand the Chevy SUV family to new audiences,” said Steve Majoros, director of Chevrolet passenger car and crossover marketing. “With the new ACTIV trim, plus the sporty RS trim, we can appeal to customers’ varying active lifestyles.”

Design Stands Out from Competition

The all-new Trailblazer has a character of its own, bringing a bold and expressive look to the segment, and a new level of personalization.

“The Trailblazer doesn’t simply let customers express their personal style. It encourages it with uniquely styled trims that allow buyers to select a vehicle that reflects their lifestyle,” said Stuart Norris, design director of global Chevrolet compact SUVs. “Its design is bold, confident and full of personality.”

The Trailblazer’s exterior styling, which follows in the theme set by the Chevy Blazer, features Chevy’s signature dual-port grille, which gives its face a multilayered, dimensional appearance. The accent bar is integrated with the headlamps, helping to visually widen its stance, while a simulated front skidplate adds a sense of strength.

ACTIV trim Trailblazers feature a new interpretation of the signature dual-port grille, with a larger opening for a more rugged look. The RS trim features a performance-inspired mesh grille with black Chevy bowtie and unique front splitter elements to define its sporty demeanor.

The side profile includes taut bodyside lines, a sleek roofline and a bold hood shape to accentuate the Trailblazer’s youthful character. RS and ACTIV trim models boost the visual appeal with standard two-tone roofs. Large, wraparound taillamps seamlessly span the liftgate and bodyside, which adds to the visual width of the Trailblazer, providing a more planted look.

Inside, the Trailblazer features a driver-focused, dual-cockpit interior design with an integrated center stack. High-quality finishes and stitching are customized to allow for different appearances at each trim level. The center console provides several storage options with up to 3.5 liters of open storage and 4.4 liters of storage under the armrest, as well as dual cupholders.

Suite of Standard Safety and Driver Assistance Features

All Trailblazer trims come with a comprehensive list of standard active safety and driver assistance features2, including:

  • Forward Collision Alert
  • Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Front Pedestrian Braking
  • IntelliBeam Headlamps (Auto High Beam Assist)
  • Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning
  • Rear Vision Camera

  • Adaptive Cruise Control – Camera
  • Rear Park Assist
  • Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert

  • HD Rear Vision Camera
  • ACTIV Tuned for Off-Road Use

Trailblazer ACTIV is equipped with unique tires and shock tuning. The ACTIV dampers are tuned to enhance vehicle performance and ride comfort when traveling on gravel roads.  The Hankook Sport Terrain 17-inch tires feature an aggressive shoulder design and an all-season tread pattern.

The front fascia on Trailblazer ACTIV has been revised with the lower section designed for improved ground clearance. Additional exterior differentiation includes two-tone roof, standard roof rails and trapezoid-shaped exhaust tips.

Connectivity and Functionality

The Trailblazer will feature Chevy’s latest infotainment system5, providing the ability to use two Bluetooth-paired phones6 concurrently, which enables passengers in the vehicle to use their cellphones hands-free or the driver to use multiple phones hands-free.

The audio system has available wireless Apple CarPlay7 and Android Auto8 connectivity and available SiriusXM with 360L9, featuring exclusive content, including commercial-free music, interviews, shows and performances. The system even learns customer preferences and shares recommendations based on listening habits. SiriusXM with 360L delivers both a satellite and streaming listening experience with more SiriusXM channels than ever before in the vehicle, plus the ability to make on-demand programming choices.

The Trailblazer features 40/60 split folding second row seats, which enables the vehicle to accommodate objects up to 8.5 feet long. Overall storage capacity is rated up to 54.4cubic feet10 with the second row folded. For additional convenience, an available hands-free liftgate, with logo projection improves ease of loading and unloading cargo.

Power and AWD Confidence

Powered by either a 1.2L turbo or 1.3L turbo engine, the Trailblazer will deliver up to 155 horsepower. Both engines are mated with a standard Continuously Variable Transmission with selectable stop/start capability. A nine-speed automatic transmission is also available on Trailblazers equipped with the 1.3L engine and all-wheel drive.

The Trailblazer is available with Chevy’s selectable AWD, also found in the Blazer and Traverse. Selectable AWD allows drivers to decide whether to activate their AWD system in off-road or inclement weather situations, or to deactivate when AWD performance is not required, to achieve improved fuel economy.

Drive modes on front-wheel drive models include:

  • Normal: Tailored for daily commuting and focused on ride comfort
  • Snow: Provides more progressive throttle input for improved vehicle acceleration on snow- and ice-covered roads
  • Sport: Modifies steering effort and shifting for a sportier feel and response
  • AWD models add unique calibrations for more rear-wheel torque at lower speeds to improve the driving experience on moderately steep and unpaved surfaces
