Holden is updating its offer in the big SUV segment with the introduction of the new Trailblazer. The name might not sound familiar for some of you and that is because the old model was used to be named Colorado 7.

Trailblazer’s exterior styling enhancements include signature LED daytime running lamps combined with chrome accents, and more muscular bonnet design.

A redesigned interior includes heated leather seats with contrast stitching, fresh new dash and updated centre console design.  Additionally, Trailblazer boasts a new eight-inch colour touch screen, with the latest Holden MyLink infotainment system and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Adding to interior cabin comfort, remote vehicle start allows Trailblazer to reach a comfortable cabin temperature before passengers climb in. The technology offer also includes rear park assist and reversing cameras standard across the range, whilst the top of the range LTZ steps it up with front park assist and forward collision alert.

Trailblazer offers active and passive safety features including additional driver’s knee airbag, Hill Start Assist, Trailer Sway Control and Hill Descent Control.  Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert are added to LTZ models.

The engineering improvements include a revised steering calibration, co-developed between Holden and Brazilian engineers providing a more precise steering feel thanks to a faster steering rack ratio and less turns lock-to-lock. 

Other developments in Trailblazer’s chassis include a revised set of engine, transmission and body mounts in addition to a new final drive ratio (only in Australia) on manual transmission Trailblazer which will improve drive quality, particularly while towing.

The 2017 Holden Trailblazer will be on sale at Holden dealers from early October.
