First New Chevrolet Trailblazer Rolls of Thailand Assembly Line

Body-on-Frame SUV Destined for Southeast Asian, Other Markets

Jun 12, 2012
The Chevrolet Trailblazer SUV is back, at least in Thailand. The first new Trailblazer rolled off the line in Rayong, Thailand, signaling the vehicle's introduction into the Southeast Asian and other global markets. But just as demand for midsize, body-on-frame SUVs is strong in developing economies with sometimes less-than-ideal roads, the U.S. market, with a few notable exceptions, has gone almost entirely in the direction of unibody, car-based crossovers for the midsize segment. Therefore, the likelihood we will see the new global Trailblazer in the U.S. market is slim to none.

However, GM has confirmed we will be getting a new Colorado (which may or may not be named Colorado) by 2014. The Colorado and new Trailblazer share a body-on-frame chassis, and turbodiesel four-cylinder engines.

The Rayong plant has an annual capacity of more than 180,000 vehicles, and currently produces the new Colorado, as well as the Chevrolet Cruze sedan and Captiva SUV for Asia-Pacific markets.
As far as we know, no SS version of the new Trailblazer is planned.
