Duramax Diesel. Tough, powerful and fuel-efficient.

2.5 Duramax Diesel

With 4 cylinders, 16 valves and 120 kW, the 2.5-liter Duramax diesel engine churns out 380 Nm of torque at 2,000 rpm (Auto models). More power is delivered with less fuel consumed, thanks to the direct injection system.The turbocharger and the intercooler system work together to regulate the temperature and density of air being circulated in the engine at a time, for improved combustion, as well as higher horsepower and torque. The forceful engine is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission, the gear ratio of which is designed to accommodate all applications from conventional use to heavy-duty transportation. The smooth gear shift is also a major plus.

2.8 Duramax Diesel

The 2.8-liter Duramax diesel engine with 4 cylinders and 16 valves delivers 144 KW and 500 Nm torque at 2,000 rpm. This high-performance, fuel-efficient engine employs the direct injection system, Variable Geometry Turbo and an intercooler to boost torque at low revolutions. A servo motor controlled by the ECM (engine control module) improves driving performance while also delivering noticeable improvement in fuel efficiency. In addition to the 6-speed manual transmission, the Duramax engine in the new Trailblazer was given a 6-speed Active Select automatic transmission. Power is delivered with great consistency and optimal fuel efficiency gained with an overdrive gear of two gear ratios. And now, with the Active Select system, driving is made even more enjoyable, which allows you to manipulate precise gear changes at will.

Projector Headlights

The projector headlights (available with the LTZ) provide a farther and better view, without blinding other drivers. The adjustable switch (High and Low position) helps the driver to find a suitable setting.

Fog headlamp

Enhance your vision, and increase your safety while driving in a rainy or foggy situation.

LED rear lamp

The LED rear lamp gives a safer way to let other drivers know when you have stopped [Only in LTZ]. The rear lamp last longer and even saves more energy. A third brake light provides more safety along with a light reflecting lamp that helps create better vision and driving dimensions from a far distance.

Electric adjustable side mirrors with LED turn signal lights

A broader vision is a greater envision. The large electrically adjustable side mirrors come complete with LED turn signal lights. Beauty is in every angle.


Safety is always a priority to guard against challenges ahead

A high-strength safety body structure and a large chassis offer excellent protection, every trip, every day.


Comfort and traction is optimized with the use of an independent double wishbone suspension on the front and half-oval steel leaf springs on the rear, plus gas shock absorbers. Driving confidence is thus assured for all speeds, on a straight road, on a curve, while empty and while loaded. This excellent setup works wonders in superbly supporting the vehicle in virtually all conditions.

Passive Safety

Double SRS airbags and safety belts with pretesioner along with a strong body frame and a highly resistant chassis with cross members protect the passenger cabin from a collision from the side. The collapsible safety steering wheel reduces the force of impact to the chest in the event of a frontal collision. Laminated windshield retains shattered bits of the glass which would otherwise be dispersed as shards, hence effectively minimizing injury.

Chevrolet Trailblaizer - Safety Case

Active Safety

The highly durable body frame of Chevrolet Trailblazer is capable of withstanding even harsh bending forces. With the extra support beams inside of the door panels, impact force from a collision from the side is optimally absorbed, making the passenger cabin a safety zone. The chassis itself has been totally redesigned with special ‘eight cross members’ and a precise structural calculation to ensure optimum resistance against bending force. As a result, stability and traction operate at maximum both when the vehicle is empty and fully loaded.

Braking System

  • Chevrolet Trailblazer - Braking System
    Activate the HDC in order to limit the speed of the vehicle to the most appropriate level.
  • Chevrolet Trailblazer - Braking System
    The HSA prevents the car from rolling when trying to pull away on an up or down gradient.

Total peace of mind is there… every time you step on the brake pedal

The Chevrolet Trailblazer with its advanced four-wheel disc brake system gives you the desirable and class-leading sense of superior security

  • ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) prevents the wheels from being locked in emergency braking.
  • EBD (Electronic Brake Force Distribution) ensures optimal distribution of braking force.
  • TCS (Traction Control System) saves the wheels from spinning freely.
  • ESC (Electronic Stability Control) improves stability as the vehicle cruises forward
  • PBA (Panic Brake Assist) effectively handles challenging sudden braking.
  • CBC (Cornering Brake Control) increases stability when brake is applied while cornering.
  • HBA (Hydraulic Brake Assist) increases brake fluid pressure when needed.
  • HBFA (Hydraulic Brake Fade Assist) works to ensure the ideal brake fluid pressure.


As the vehicle proceeds down a steep slope, simply activate the HDC and the system will have the engine and the brake working in unison in order to automatically limit the speed of the vehicle to the most appropriate level thus making the descent much safer. Only available for the automatic transmissions


The HSA prevents the car from rolling when trying to pull away on an up or down gradient. It still holds the car stationary after the brake is released giving the driver more safely.
