2014 Chevrolet Trailblazer Rumored for US Market

2014 Chevrolet Trailblazer Rumored for US Market

Despite General Motors claim that it has no plans to bring the new Trailblazer to America, new rumors suggest that Chevrolet could expand its SUV lineup next year with the addition of the Trailblazer, or a small SUV based off of it. 

An industry source familiar with Chevrolet’s product plans told Edmunds that a variant of the Trailblazer is expected to go on sale in the U.S. next year, though it’s unknown if it’ll carry the Trailblazer nameplate. The Trailblazer has been discontinued in the U.S. since 2009, when it was replaced by the Traverse.

The new Trailblazer, which shares it body-on-frame architecture with the Colorado, went on sale last year in international markets including Thailand, Brazil, and the Philippines. The American automaker previously announced that it plans to sell the Trailblazer in 50 global markets, but specifically stated that it had no plans to bring it to America.

    That actually looks pretty badass! I like!

    Build this Trailblazer with a turbo charged diesel engine, and they will fly off the lots. And you know it. I’ll be first in line to trade in my Nissans and buy two of them. Why do the foreigners always get the good stuff? We showed the entire word how to build cars. Then we showed them how to build TRUCKS, and yet, here we are trying to get a pull on the hind teat. It blows my mind. Anyway, whoever does nut up and build a turbocharged diesel, will have a winner in the U.S. market. We’re waiting…

    This vehicle carries the Colorado 7 name over in Australia. Check out Holden’s site to see it more in depth.
