A familiar name for U.S. motorists, but the Chevrolet TrailBlazer SUV debuting at the upcoming Dubai International Motor Show next month may not make it to American shores.
The midsize sport-utility vehicle shares its underpinnings with the completely redesigned midsized Colorado pickup that Chevy confirmed will be sold in the U.S. – starting early next year as a 2013 model. But, at least initially, the TrailBlazer based off the truck appears destined to just about anywhere Chevrolet sells SUVs but the States.
The new model uses a body-on-frame design that was developed by General Motors’ main Latina American product development center, GM do Brasil. The operation also developed the new Colorado, which launched in Thailand earlier this month. Thailand will also be the first to start welling the new SUV.
