    by V3Cars Team on Tuesday, Nov 01 2016

    Seems like the news of the impending arrival of the new generation Toyota Fortuner premium SUV has been making its market rivals in India very anxious, as they are receiving huge price cuts. Confirming this impression, Chevrolet Trailblazer which is General Motor India’s flagship model has got a massive price reduction of more than Rs. 3 lakhs. This huge price slash decision of the Trailblazer by General Motors has come after its fellow American car maker Ford slashed the prices for its Endeavour premium SUV. 

    Seems like the news of the impending arrival of the new generation Toyota Fortuner premium SUV has been making its market rivals in India very anxious, as they are receiving huge price cuts. Confirming this impression, Chevrolet Trailblazer which is General Motor India’s flagship model has got a massive price reduction of more than Rs. 3 lakhs. This huge price slash decision of the Trailblazer by General Motors has come after its fellow American car maker Ford slashed the prices for its Endeavour premium SUV. The Chevrolet Trailblazer is offered for sale in the car market of India in a single LTZ model trim and after this humongous price cut, the premium SUV will now be available at an attractive price of Rs. 23.95 lakhs (price ex-showroom, New Delhi). This highly competitive pricing definitely makes the capable Chevrolet Trailblazer a very attractive buy and it is expected to give a good push to its sales rates during the ongoing festive season.

    The price reduction strategy for the Chevrolet Trailblazer from GM India is to serve more than one purpose. It is part of the ongoing festive season special attraction and also a way of celebrating the first anniversary of the Trailblazer in India. However, the motive of the price slash is simply to boost the slow sales of the premium SUV model in India. The Chevrolet Trailblazer arrived in India in October 2015, and thus it is quite a new model in this country, but despite that fact the company has managed to sell only 28 units in the last 6 months’ time. This poor sales rates of the Chevrolet Trailblazer is due to its fully imported model status, which means although it is expensive, it doesn’t have enough features to be at par with its market rivals – the new Ford Endeavour and the previous-gen Toyota Fortuner. GM India thus really took a good decision to slash its price in order to make most of the high buying sentiments during the Indian festive season.

    While the Ford Endeavour which currently enjoys the leading position in the Indian premium SUV segment being a new feature-rich model, suddenly received a huge price reduction very recently, Toyota is all braced up to launch the all new Fortuner to regain its position as the favorite premium SUV of India. It is though that the impending launch of the all new Fortuner that is slated on 7th November is the reason behind the Endeavor’s price slash. Needless to mention, all these have created tremendous negative impact on the Trailblazer’s sales. So, the price slash of the Chevrolet Trailblazer is well justified.

    The Chevrolet Trailblazer is equipped with a powerful 2.8L 4 pot diesel motor that delivers 197 bhp of power and a hammering 500 Nm of top torque. The engine is mated to a 6 speed automatic transmission.

    Trailblazer’s feature list includes a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with smartphone app, hill climb and descent assist, ABS, electronic stability control, traction control, etc. However, the SUV lacks several features that its market rivals offer.
