After its ace rival, the Ford Endeavour, the Chevrolet Trailblazer also got a price cut of INR 2.5 lakh on the only variant sold in the country, LTZ. With the new price cut in effect, the Chevrolet Trailblazer now costs INR 23.95 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). Back in the month of September 2016, the Ford Endeavour received a price cut of INR 2.82 lakh. This price cut is also an effect of the stiff competition in the segment which will rise with the launch of the new Toyota Fortuner, scheduled in November 2016.
Contrary to its rivals in the segment, the Chevrolet Trailblazer only comes in a rear-wheel drive variant while the Ford Endeavour and the Toyota Fortuner are available in four-wheel drive options. The engine on the SUV is a 2.8L Duramax diesel made out of cast iron and gives the rear wheels class leading power of 200PS @ 3600 rpm and an equally impressive torque of 500nm @ 2000rpm. The engine comes mated to a six speed AT gearbox.
