ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

by Ross Darby November 2011

With the sheer exponential rise of Dubai's economy, it's easy to see why the Dubai Motor Show is quickly becoming a must-stop location for manufacturers. Some are even using the stage to debut new models, instead of at the mainstays like LA or Detroit. Chevy has done just that this year with its newest TrailBlazer.

And looking at it, Dubai just may be the perfect place for its unveiling, with the midsize SUV market being as competitive as it was here in the States just a few years ago. And the TrailBlazer is the quintessential midsize SUV. Able to seat seven, but built off of the same frame as Chevy's Colorado pickup, it's not the behemoth that some seven-seaters like the Suburban and Tahoe tend to be. The exterior design is bold, with humps and creases throughout, and features LED lighting everywhere it can, to keep things nice and bright.

Motivating all four wheels is GM's new 2.8-liter Duramax turbo-diesel engine, offering plenty of grunt, while keeping fuel efficiency figures up. Inside, the rear seats are of the 60/40 split variety, and both rear rows can be folded flat to make cargo space as copious as possible. Of course, many infotainment features are included as well, like a USB connection for your tunes, and Bluetooth for hands-free cellphone operation.

Chevy says that the car will be sold around the world, starting with Thailand in early 2012. It will then roll out to other markets, but considering the setting for the debut and first point-of-sale, we'd expect Chevy to place this in lesser-thought-of markets before our own.
