The 2.8D LTZ 4x4 models are available with the five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmissions.

Class Leading Features

From its exterior and interior, practical seating system, cleverly-packaged luggage area and comfortable driving environment, the new Chevrolet Trailblazer is immersed with smart features and class leading attributes.

All models from the new Trailblazer range will be fitted with tumble-flat seven seats, a multi-function steering wheel, front fog lights, electric mirrors, a USB port for the audio system, Bluetooth, cruise control, ABS with EBD and BAS, four airbags and ISOFIX child seat anchors.

The range-topping LTZ models will come fully equipped with smart upgrades including full leather upholstery, automatic climate control, LED tail lights, HID headlights, rear parking sensors, traction control, stability control, 18-inch wheels. There will also be an electric adjustment for the driver’s seat and outside rear view mirrors, including a one-push out-the-way storage function.

“We launched the Trailblazer in the last quarter of 2012 with firm intent to shake up the segment and the sales figures since then speak for themselves. With its excellent specification levels, great all-rounder personality, wide range of appeal and brilliant adaptability, the Trailblazer has done all the hard work for us. Not to mention its class-leading attributes, of course. As a value-for-money proposition especially, the new Chevrolet Trailblazer is able to take on the stalwarts of the market and is finding favour with more South African families day by day. We’re not surprised, but our new Trailblazer owners certainly are, and pleasantly at that," said Chevrolet Brand Manager, Tim Hendon.
