Despite having a plethora of auto shows to choose where they were going to unveil the new Trailblazer, Chevrolet decided on doing it at the 2011 Dubai Motor Show as a way of effectively sucking up to the Middle East. Not that there’s anything wrong with it, because if you really think about it, the Trailblazer is built for a region like the Middle East.
In any case, the 2013 Traiblazer did in fact make an appearance in Dubai and it came with plenty of new features that could potentially shoot it up the always-competitive mid-size SUV market.
The new Trailblazer was designed to combine the hauling and towing capability of a body-on-frame SUV with the ride comfort and efficiency of a crossover. Its no coincidence that the new Trailblazer, which was built in Brazil, epitomizes these qualities.
For all intents and purposes, the model that was shown at the Dubai Motor Show was merely a show vehicle, but according to Chevrolet, it’s as close to the real thing as it can possibly get.
The show vehicle features, among other things, a refreshed design, an all-wheel-drive system, and GM’s new 2.8-liter Duramax turbo-diesel engine, providing all of us as good a look at the company’s new mid-sized SUV before the production version enters the market next year.

Is it us or has this 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer lost its roof? Okay, it’s most definitely not us. It’s actually a standard Trailblazer except for the fact that it has been stripped away of its top. We can’t say that it’s a convertible because it sure as heck doesn’t look the part. However, other than the discarded roof, it still looks pretty much the same: it’s got seven seats and it’s a 4-wheel-drive.
And according to the man who’s selling this ride - yes, he’s selling it; if you can believe that - it’s got some celebrity cred attached to it after it was supposedly used during a past Rose Bowl parade. Maybe that explains the missing roof. In any case, the car can be yours for only $15,000, an amount that seems to be bargain for a Trailblazer that only has 29,500 miles on it. Then again, it’s doesn’t have a roof, which, as far as we’re concerned, is a pretty big sticking point.
