October 19, 2016 – General Motors has revised prices of the Chevrolet Trailblazer premium SUV in India. With a major price drop of Rs 3.04 lakh, the Trailblazer is now available at Rs 23.95 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Having taken the fight to the Ford Endeavour and Toyota Fortuner, this premium SUV was launched at Rs 26.40 lakh in October 2015.
All in all, this decision might shock Ford India which too had reduced the price of the Endeavour last month. This move is aimed at increasing the sales of the Trailblazer which otherwise has failed to do anything for the American carmaker. The Chevrolet Trailblazer is the first ever body-on-frame SUV from the American market in India.
