General Motor’s North American marque, Chevrolet has announced the addition (or the return) of the Trailblazer to its North American SUV range.

The Trailblazer model will slot between the Trax and the Equinox—both models which are available in Australia as Holdens, but is not related to the locally available Trailblazer, which is a Colorado with a wagon body.

A small SUV, the Trailblazer is different to the North American model which mosey’d off American dealership lots in 2009.

“The [2019] Trailblazer’s great design enables more personalization,” said Steve Majoros, director of Chevrolet passenger car and crossover marketing.

“Trailblazer is a continuation of the design language for Chevy’s crossover family and extends our momentum into one of the industry’s fastest-growing segments.”

In its release, Chevrolet said that more details about product specifications will be revealed later, though it added that the North American Trailblazer would start arriving at dealerships early next year.

Besides touting the models “unique individuality” (without explaining what that is), the company did reveal however was that a slate of standard-issue tech and features across the Chevrolet brand would make it into the Trailblazer.

Those features will include front pedestrian braking, automatic emergency braking and lane keep assist with lane departure warning.

Additionally, it will have optional adaptive cruise control - camera, rear park assist and a high definition rear vision camera that provides additional assistance while parking.

GM is yet to reveal information on whether the North American Trailblazer will reach Australian shores.
