2013 Chevrolet Trailblazer Production Begins in Thailand
The first all-new Trailblazer to roll off the line is a range-topping LTZ fitted with a 2.8-liter Duramax turbo-diesel engine, borrowed from the new Colorado pickup, also built in Thailand.
“The Trailblazer will be built in Thailand for Thailand, and soon also make its way into the rest of the world. And delivery of the Trailblazer to our customers starts right now,” said Martin Apfel, President of GM Thailand/Southeast Asia.
“Production is now getting into full-swing. Since May this year, we have added a third shift to our assembly and powertrain plants,” Apfel said. “The increase in production isn’t just to meet customer orders for the Trailblazer, but also to address increasing demand for the Colorado truck, which we have started exporting earlier this year. At the same time, demand for other models is also growing. This will be a very busy year for Chevrolet.”
