Driving impression: Chev Trailblazer


Chevrolet Trailblazer 2.8 LTZ 4x4 AUTO

The 4x4 model with its lowrange gearbox is a true offroader too Its performance on the open road is good but this vehicle’s towing capacity of 2 950 kg is what really excites. Its turbodiesel engine has more than enough torque for towing, and is eager no matter that driving condition. As expected the Trailblazer is comfortable off-road. Inside it’s cosy, with a third row of seats providing ample space. The second and third rows of seats tumble and fold flat, which is done quite easily too. It features all the must-have comfort and safety features too.
