A fully camouflaged prototype of 2017 Chevrolet Trailblazer facelift has been spotted testing in India for the first time. The latest iteration with a revised front fascia made its global debut at the 2016 Bangkok Motor Show in March.
The test mule is heavily camouflaged but the overall size and locations of headlamps, dual-port grill, and fog lamps are consistent with the 2017 Trailblazer.
The updated Trailblazer gets revamped front fascia and subly revised rear fascia.
The revamped front fascia with larger trough-shaped two-part grill, headlamps with integrated LED daytime running lights and a new bumper renders the ladder frame SUV a model appeal. The profile stays intact while the rear fascia gets revised taillights and bumper.
Inside, the dashboard design has been completely revamped. The circular arrangement of switches on the centre console has been done away with and instead, a more conventional console with a touchscreen infotainment system has been introduced. The car spotted in India appears to feature a full black color theme while the show car at Bangkok sported dual-tone theme.
The 2017 Trailblazer has been retained without any significant under-the-skin changes which means the India-spec version will continue to be powered by the 2.8-litre Duramax diesel engine which develops 200 PS and 500 Nm of torque. The engine drives the rear wheels via a 6-speed automatic transmission.
The dashboard design has nothing in common with the current model.
