Chevy PH debuts updated Trailblazer, previews all new Trax

The SUV wars just got more interesting as the Chevrolet Philippines launches the new and improved variants of the Trailblazer at the 2015 Manila International Auto Show. The new versions range from the entry level 4x2 LTX MT to the top of the line Chevrolet Trailblazer 4x4 LTZ Special Edition (SE) AT; a total of seven variants.

External updates for 4x4 LTZ SE AT include new front and rear bumpers, LED projector headlamps, LED fog lamps and daytime running lamps improving the already muscular and sporty profile.The 2nd generation 2.8-liter Duramax Turbo-diesel engine produces 200hp of power at 3,600 rpm and 500 Nm of torque at 2,000 rpm. The 2.5-liter variants have been increased to 163hp and 380 Nm of torque. The engine is paired with either a six-speed manual or the retuned six-speed automatic transmission with Active Select optimized for performance and fuel economy.

Another entry to the burgeoning small SUV segment is the Chevrolet Trax. With SUV toughness in a small package, this car is perfect for our pothole-ridden roads. Going against the likes of the Ford Ecosport, it would be interesting how Chevy PH decides on the final specs for this car come launch day.
