Already the third best-selling mid-sized SUV in the market, Chevrolet’s Philippine distributor, The Covenant Car Company, Inc. (TCCCI) doesn’t want to rest on their laurels. Having sold 2,211 units already from January to June of this year, the Trailblazer is finally getting yet another variant, the Trailblazer LTX which is designed to bridge the features gap of the 4x2 model with the 4x4.
Outside, the new Trailblazer LTX looks every bit like the LTZ 4x4 from the new 18-inch alloy wheels to the blacked out B-pillar. Inside, the LTX gets full leather upholstery with perforations for better cooling and double stitching for added durability. Along with the plusher interior, the LTX also receives a new rear back-up camera along with overview sensing monitor and digital compass embedded in the automatic dimming rear view mirror.
The Chevrolet Trailblazer LTX is priced at P 1,588,888 and is available in 7 colors: Summit White, Black Sapphire, Sizzle Red, Auburn Brown, Oceanic Blue, Royal Gray and Switchblade Silver.
Upgrade Your Drive with Chevrolet Philippines’ Trailblazer 2.8 LTX A/T
First launched in 2012, the Trailblazer was Chevrolet Philippines’ first entry into the country’s mid-size SUV segment. Its robust and rugged looks matched with a spacious cabin, class-leading engine, and superior on and off-road driving dynamics helped the Trailblazer capture a significant niche in the local market, having sold 2,211 units from January 2014 to June 2014. Currently ranked 3rd on the mid-size SUV segment, the Trailblazer surpassed its previous years’ performances and seized notable awards such as the 2013-2014 SUV of the year by the Car Awards Group Inc., and the best mid-size SUV 7-Seater in the 9th Annual C! Awards.
Chevrolet attributes the astounding performance of the Trailblazer to the continuously growing demand of the local market for vehicles that can withstand our country’s tough weather conditions and challenging terrains, and also to its commendable features such as 7-seater capacity, sophisticated yet commanding design, best-in-class power and torque, 800mm water wading capability and multilink suspensions for that comfortable ride.
And now, to set the bar even higher and answer all your needs, Chevrolet Philippines introduces the Chevrolet Trailblazer 2.8L LTX variant. The Trailblazer LTX is now fitted with rugged yet elegant 18-inch alloy wheels, premium leather seats, rear back up camera with rear sensors and much much more. It is the vehicle that responds to what Filipinos want and need in a mid-size SUV in terms of style, safety, and convenience.
All the Power you need
With the 2nd generation Duramax Turbo-diesel engine, the 2.8-liter Trailblazer LTX produces 200hp of power at 3,600 rpm and 500 Nm of torque at 2,000 rpm, making the Trailblazer the most powerful in its class. It provides all the power you need to conquer steep roads and breeze through busy highways. Furthermore, the Trailblazer LTX variant is built with the six-speed automatic transmission with Active Select that features retuned ratios to take advantage of the improved Duramax engine’s capacity, providing the Trailblazer with the best performance and fuel economy.
Commanding Interior and Exterior design
With its aggressive and commanding stance, the new Chevrolet Trailblazer LTX variant is set to display its freshly fitted 18-inch alloy wheels with a rugged yet elegant design. The 8.5-inch width and 20-inch hub offset of the wheels have been harmonized with the Trailblazer’s flared wheel arches to further enhance the visual impression of muscularity and robustness. The Trailblazer LTX also features a power dome hood design, Chevrolet’s signature dual-port grills, new black “B” pillars and black polyurethane license plate frames. These new enhancements draw out the appearance of the vehicle’s glasshouse frame, resulting to the Trailblazer LTX’s upgraded and sportier profile.
The Chevrolet Trailblazer LTX is also en suite with Camaro-inspired blue LED illuminated gauges that are easy to see at night and during the day, a built-in 2nd and 3rd row seats air conditioner vents that provide better air circulation, and an elegant beige leather seating surface for the 7 theater-styled seats that can be configured for more space and comfort. The new upholstery features full perforations on the cushions and backrests to increase comfort in warm weather and is double stitched to increase the durability of its seams and joints. Another extra detail added, that LTX owners will surely appreciate, are the additional pockets for small items placed at the leading edge of the driver and front passengers' cushion under the occupant’s knees- a discreet place to hide valuables from prying eyes.
First-class Safety and Convenience
Equipped with a new rear back up camera with rear sensors, a new chromatic rearview mirror featuring a 4.3-inch LCD back up monitor and a new overview sensing monitor and digital compass, the Trailblazer LTX variant is also loaded with several convenient and safety features to serve new Chevrolet owners well.
The Trailblazer is the first mid-size SUV in its segment to offer disc brakes on all four wheels. Aside from the usual Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) tandem, the use of four coil springs and a multi-link rear suspension system, usually found in more up-market SUVs, balances out the typical characteristics of conventional body-on-frame SUVs and results in a comfortable ride and passenger car-like handling dynamics.
