GM has confirmed its latest SUV will wear a Chevrolet Trailblazer nameplate when it appears in American dealerships as early as next year, slotting between the Trax and the Equinox. But the sleek-looking SUV could also make an appearance in Australia, where it would neatly fill a hole in Holden's own product line-up.
Holden has declined to comment on future product, but consider this; both the Trax and the Equinox are offered in Australia, and also in the States where they're badged as Chevrolets. And that the Trailblazer will be built relatively close to us in South Korea.
For all of these reasons, it's understood a decision is yet to be made on the Trailblazer for Australia. But if it was to arrive, you can expect a name change - that moniker is already used for Holden's seven-seat SUV in Oz.
“The Trailblazer’s great design enables more personalisation,” says Chevrolet's director of passenger cars and crossover marketing, Steve Majoros. "Trailblazer is a continuation of the design language for Chevy’s crossover family and extends our momentum into one of the industry’s fastest-growing segments.”
We don't know else much about the Trailblazer yet, other than it will focus on personalisation options, and will include an RS trim level in the States.
For now, though, watch this space.
