The Chinese automobile market is very important for GM, so it’s not any wonder at all that the company intends to introduce four crossovers at the upcoming Auto Shanghai that starts later this month. As you probably know already, Buick will unveil its new Buick Encore and Encore GX SUVs. Chevrolet is bringing two new players as well. The manufacturer is skimp on words so far, so at the moment, we only know that they are bringing the Tracker and Trailblazer.
Based on the teaser, we can conclude that one of them (most likely Tracker) is going to look more rugged, while the Trailblazer gets sloped rooflines and sleeker design. Earlier images which supposedly reveal the Tracker show plastic body cladding all around the SUV, as well as a slender grille treatment that has been paired perfectly with the aggressive air intakes. In addition, the Tracker borrows front fenders from the Silverado, though the sculpted hood seems to be a unique detail, specially made for the new SUV.
Under the hood, the 2020 Chevrolet Tracker should be fitted with a small three-cylinder turbocharged 1.0-liter engine. The mill will reportedly develop 115 horsepower that will travel to front wheels via a six-speed dual-clutch transmission.
As for the upcoming 2020 Chevy Trailblazer, well, the silhouette can’t say everything, but it does suggest that we are looking into one quite sleek crossover, which a little bit reminds on the larger Blazer. Based on the previous spy shots, the future crossover will fill the gap between Trax and Equinox.
Allegedly, the Chevy Trailblazer will use the manufacturer’s new VSS-S architecture. The platform is highly modular, so it will underpin a range of unibody models in the future. The SUV will most probably use some sort of a 4-cylinder engine with turbocharging, which will send power to front- or all-wheel drive.
Official debuts of the Trailblazer and Tracker are scheduled for April 16 at Auto Shanghai 2019, so we will find out everything about the models soon.
Stay tuned for updates.
