Chevrolet has introduced the 2013 Trailblazer, ahead of its debut at the Bangkok International Motor Show.

Based on the redesigned Colorado, the SUV features rugged styling and body-on-frame construction that promises to deliver best-in-class ride quality as well as responsiveness.

The cabin has a "dual cockpit" design with a three-spoke steering wheel, contrasting trim and metallic accents. There's seating for seven and the second two rows can be folded down to create a nearly flat load floor.

Under the hood, two four-cylinder diesel engines are available. The 2.5-liter unit produces 150 PS (110 kW / 148 hp) and 258 lb-ft (350 Nm) of torque, while the 2.8-liter unit develops up to 180 PS (132 kW / 178 hp) and 346 lb-ft (470 Nm) of torque. They can be connected to a five-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission as well as an optional four-wheel drive system.

The 2013 Chevrolet Trailblazer will go on sale in Thailand this June, before being offered "around the world."
