The 2019 Chevy TrailBlazer will receive a mid-cycle update. Those are latest reports about this Colorado-based SUV. Although this nameplate is present for many decades, the current model received it last year.
In previous years, this model was known as Colorado 7 SUV, because of its close relationship with a famous pickup truck. Also, we saw several updates on this occasion, mostly inside. However, there is still an impression that this SUV should look better. So, the company decided to improve its visual appearance. The update that will bring all these changes will happen next year. So, the 2019 TrailBlazer will finally get a more attractive look.
On the other side, we saw several novelties inside last year, so the interior design will probably remain the same. When it comes to powertrain, we should see same two diesel units in the offer in the model that will come next year.
2019 Chevy TrailBlazer changes
Although we still didn’t get an official confirmation, it is pretty much for sure that the 2019 Chevy TrailBlazer will get a facelift. For this occasion, we will see various visual improvements. The new model will be fitted to the brand’s newest design language. Of course, most of the changes will come at the front. In this area, the new model will have most in common with models like Chevy Traverse. However, the rest of the vehicle will keep its boxy lines, which make it clear that this is a traditional body-on-frame, truck-based SUV.
When it comes to the interior design, we will not see bigger changes. The current model just recently received a big update inside. There are many novelties, such as new dashboard design, new standard features, more equipment, better quality of materials etc.
2019 Chevy TrailBlazer features
In terms of equipment, the 2019 Chevy TrailBlazer probably won’t feature bigger changes. We will see pretty much the same list of standard features for both LT and LTZ models. However, each trim could receive few new standard features.
The base LT model comes with things like 8-inch touchscreen smartphone integration, Bluetooth, USB ports, air conditioning etc.
The upscale LTZ raises comfort and convenience on a higher level. It adds several nice standard features, such as dual-zone digital climate control, better touchscreen interface etc. There is also a big upgrade in terms of safety. There are more airbags, but also much more advanced safety systems, such as pre-collision detection system, lane departure, and blind spot warning, and well as the off-road and towing assistance.
2019 Chevy TrailBlazer engines
Despite big changes outside the SUV, we probably will not see changes under the hood. The 2019 Chevy TrailBlazer will most likely continue with two familiar units. Both of them are a diesel engine.
The base model features a 2.5-liter engine, which is good for about 150 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. The optional 2.8-liter unit came upgraded a few years ago and now features around 200 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. Both engines come in a pair with either 6-speed manual or automatic transmission.
For some abroad markets, such as Brazil and the Middle East, there is also a gasoline unit in the offer. It is a familiar 3.6-liter V6, which for this occasion delivers around 240 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque.
2019 Chevy TrailBlazer release date and price
The 2019 Chevy TrailBlazer will come somewhere in the second half of next year. It should keep the same price, which goes in a range between 49.000 and 53.000 Australia dollars, or 37.000 and 40.000 dollars, roughly.
Competition is pretty tough. There are models like Isuzu MU-X and Mitsubishi Pajero.
