Holden’s Colorado 7 becomes the Trailblazer

For 2017, the Holden Colorado 7 is getting a facelift and a new name. It's now known as Trailblazer, which seems like a marketing tactic to distance the SUV from the closely-related Colorado pick-up.

A successfully redesigned front end is the most visible sign of the updates. However, there are also a few mechanical modifications that are just as important.

In an effort to provide a better driving experience and more refinement, the mounts for the 2.8 litre Duramax turbo-diesel engine, six-speed automatic transmission and body have all been upgraded. In addition, a quicker steering rack and variable electronic assistance should improve responsiveness.

Customers will have a choice of LT or LTZ trim grades. Both come as standard with a rear reversing camera, LED daytime running lights and a MyLink infotainment system that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Among the many extra items fitted to the LTZ are leather upholstery, heated front seats, touchscreen-controlled satellite navigation, climate control, 18” alloy wheels, power-folding door mirrors and remote starting. This version also boasts tyre pressure monitoring, lane departure warning, forward collision alert, side blind zone alert and rear cross traffic alert.

In Australia, sales of the 2017 Trailblazer begin in October. Prices are largely unchanged.
