MANILA – Chevrolet Philippines is proud to introduce the latest contender in the highly popular compact SUV segment: The Chevy Trailblazer. Built to be embraced by a forward-thinking, tech-savvy, and independent audience, the Chevy Trailblazer will engage owners looking to drive a premium compact SUV that is a step above the competition. Thanks to its feature-packed nature, the all-new Chevy Trailblazer is certain to satisfy the needs of even the most demanding car buyers.
“We are proud to introduce the all-new 2022 Chevy Trailblazer to the Philippine market,” says Atty. Albert B. Arcilla, President and Chief Executive Officer of Chevrolet Philippines–TCCCI. “The Trailblazer is a continuation of the new design language for Chevy’s crossover family and extends our momentum into one of the industry’s fastest-growing segments. It continues the SUV heritage of the revered nameplate and is now loaded with safety and convenience features that anticipate the needs of today’s most discerning customers,” Arcilla adds.
This latest model from Chevrolet Philippines will cater to individuals who lead active lifestyles and who put a premium on being connected at all times. These owners drive cars that match their attitudes, passions, and interests.
Environment-conscious buyers will also be pleased with the Chevy Trailblazer’s highly efficient yet exhilarating powertrain. And with a whole host of safety features that supplement the drive, the Chevy Trailblazer will give owners added confidence every moment behind the wheel.
The Chevy Trailblazer is manufactured at the General Motors Incheon plant in South Korea. The model, which is built on a global GM platform, is available in North America, South Korea, China, and now also, in the
Philippines. The new Chevy Trailblazer will be available in two variants: LT (₱1,488,888) and Premier (₱1,621,888).
“The Trailblazer doesn’t simply let customers express their personal style – it encourages it,” says Stuart Norris, design director of global Chevrolet compact SUVs. “Its design is bold, confident, and full of personality.”
The Chevy Trailblazer is a five-door premium compact SUV that showcases a Camaro-inspired front fascia with LED Intellibeam Headlamps, LED DRLs, and LED fog lamps. Taking center stage is Chevrolet’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 skid plate adds a sense of strength. The side profile includes taut character lines, a sleek roofline, and a bold hood shape to accentuate its youthful character. Meanwhile, the rear of the Chevy Trailblazer features a LED high-mount stop lamp, a hands-free power liftgate, LED taillamps, a rear camera, and sensors.
The eight exterior color options are Summit White, Black Meet Kettle Metallic, Crimson Metallic, Blue Glow Metallic, Vivid Metallic, Mahogany Red Metallic, Abalone White Tri-coat, and Satin Steel Grey Metallic. Rounding off the exterior are 17-inch alloy wheels.
State-of-the-art engine technology and driver-assist features Under the hood of the Chevy Trailblazer is GM’s next-generation Euro IV E-Turbo engine. The 1.3-liter inline three-cylinder DOHC turbocharged powerplant delivers 155hp @ 5,600rpm and 236Nm of torque between 1,600rpm and 4,000rpm. This innovative engine is characterized by advanced technology features that not only add excitement behind the wheel, but also enhance fuel efficiency.
Highlights include an active thermal management system that maintains optimum engine and transmission temperature through various sensors; a
variable displacement oil pump that ensures oil delivery is optimized depending on the engine load; and an electric water pump that is independent from the engine and eliminates parasitic drag.
Aiding with engine temperature management are active grille shutters that close on the highway when engine cooling needs are reduced, thereby reducing aerodynamic drag and maximizing aerodynamic efficiency by pushing more air around the vehicle. An engine start/stop system that helps to save fuel and reduces emissions is also available. Power is delivered to the driven wheels via Hydramatic VT40 CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission). This new-generation lightweight 6-Speed front-wheel-drive CVT comes equipped with a multi-drive-mode system to match road conditions.
Driver aids that keep things in check are Enhanced Stability Control; ABS, Traction Control, Electronic Stability Control, Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, Hill Start Assist, Cornering Brake Control, Roll Over Protection, and Engine Drag Control. The Chevy Trailblazer also comes with a host of brake assist systems such as Brake Pre-Fill; Fading Brake Assist (FBA); and Panic Brake Assist (PBA). Mini Spare Detection automatically detects if an emergency or spare tire is in use. This system adjusts the brakeforce, torque and power applied on the spare. The parking brake is actuated electronically.
To assist with enthusiastic cornering, the Torque Vectoring by Brakes (TVBB) system brakes the inside wheel during a turn. Light brake force is applied to the front inside wheel as soon as it begins to lose grip, sending more engine torque to the outside wheel that has more grip.
Versatile interior with unmatched connectivity
Inside, drivers will be greeted by a heated, leather-wrapped, steering wheel with cruise and audio controls. Electronic Power Steering (EPS) is equipped standard, as well as a Push Button starter.
The jet-black leather interior is accented by white stitching all around. Front seats are heated as well. The centerpiece of the cockpit is the 8” MyLink
with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. For added comfort for all passengers, the Chevy Trailblazer is equipped with an automatic HVAC with Air Moisture Sensor and AC Cabin Pollen Filter.
For added versatility when transporting passengers and cargo, the second row is split-folding 60/40. The cargo area also features a two-tier cargo floor. Entry to the cabin is effortless thanks to the Passive Entry System.
Standard safety features and added driver assistance technology The all-new Chevy Trailblazer is equipped with 3-point seatbelts for all five occupants; six airbags (driver, front passenger, side and curtain airbags); 4-eye rear sensors with a camera; a tire pressure monitoring system and tire-fill alert.
Cutting-edge driver assistance systems often found on luxury models are offered for the Chevy Trailblazer. Forward Collision Alert, Following Distance Indicator, Automatic Emergency Braking, Front Pedestrian Braking, Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Rear Camera, Rear Park Assist and Rear Cross Traffic alert are present to make sure that drivers (and pedestrians) are given an added layer of protection from untoward incidents.
The all-new Chevy Trailblazer is now available in all Chevrolet dealerships nationwide. It comes with a five-year warranty, automatic enrollment to the 24/7 Chevrolet Roadside Assistance for three (3) years, and immediate access to the 24/7 Chevy Hotline for convenient vehicle service and ownership needs.
