GM Finally Releases New Chevy Trailblazer…in the Middle East
Off-road enthusiasts have been asking Chevy to build a new Trailblazer SUV for years and consumers are finally getting their wish, as long as they live in the Middle East.
General Motors has finally announced all of the new tech features and safety equipment that will come with the 2017 Chevy Trailblazer. One of those features is Apple CarPlay compatibility, which gives consumers the ability to merge their smartphone devices with the vehicle’s touchscreen system. In addition, the Trailblazer will offer Siri Eyes Free and voice recognition technology, allowing the driver to use the tech equipment via verbal commands, so they can keep their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.
Keeping the vehicle safe will be a host of new passive and active safety features. Every 2017 Chevy Trailblazer will be offered with electronic stability control, trailer sway control, hill descent control, electronic brake force distribution, anti-lock brakes, anti-rolling protection, a traction control system, and panic brake assist. All of this safety equipment works together, making the 2017 Trailblazer one of the safest and most off-road capable vehicles currently offered anywhere by GM.
The 2017 Trailblazer will receive its power from a 3.6-liter V6 engine that’s good for 275 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. This capable engine will be complemented by a more rigidly designed chassis, a fully boxed frame, and electric power steering to provide the driver with more control of the vehicle. These features also enhance the overall ride quality of the new Trailblazer.
It should also be noted the Trailblazer comes with an updated front grille and bumper, as well as new daytime running lamps. The interior has also been redesigned with a new dashboard, and more soft touch materials have been included.
Pricing for the 2017 Trailblazer varies for each Middle Eastern country in which it’s available.
