THE CHEVROLET Trailblazer may be one of the oldest midsize SUVs on the streets today, but it’s definitely not a pushover.
The American SUV just got a facelift last year, and we think the updates make the Trailblazer a strong contender in a market dominated by newer competitors.
The SUV’s strengths include a powerful engine — a 2.8-liter Duramax turbodiesel engine that produces class-leading numbers of 200 pferdestarkes (197 horsepower) of power and 500 newton meter of torque, and a spacious interior.
Another thing going for it is its 800mm wading depth, something which is very crucial for us Cebuanos without flood-prone streets.
The face-lifted version also sports a more aggressive front end that underlines its go-anywhere capability.
Most notable up front is its new grille, bumper and headlamps that come with daytime running lights.
