Chevrolet has been one of the most popular producers on SUV market for the last few years. Their offer range is relatively huge and some of the famous representatives are Traverse, Equinox and, of course, Trailblazer.

This stunning seven-passenger SUV continue to be upgraded year by year and the new Chevy Trailblazer 2016 will surely be the most intriguing ever since Chevrolet releases Trailblazer on the market. Europeans will probably have to put a lot of effort in getting this car because it was not planned to be released on the European market.

The 6.0-liter eight-cylinder will power this seven passenger SUV, developing decent 345 horsepower. Also, all-wheel-drive and rear-wheel-drive system are up to driver to choose.
