GM premiers a show car of the 2012 Trailblazer while the production model is set to go on sale early next year.

Chevrolet has debuted the all-new 2012 Trailblazer at the Dubai International Motor Show.

The seven-seat Chevrolet Trailblazer is a global SUV that goes on sale next year in the Thai market.

But GM is still calling the model here a show vehicle so when the production model follows next year it may differ slightly from this concept.

The body-on-frame SUV is powered by GM's 2.8 liter Duramax diesel unit which in the global 2012 Chevy Colorado is configured to deliver 180 PS (132 kW / 177 hp) and 470 Nm (346 lb-ft) of torque.

The corresponding video and press release contain more details.
