Quick Comparo: Chevrolet Trailblazer vs Toyota Fortuner

One look at it and you know that the Chevrolet Trailblazer has been brought to India by General Motors with the clear intention of bringing the Toyota Fortuner to its knees. It even looks a bit like the tough and gargantuan off-roader from Toyota. So how does the Chevy fare against the highly successful Toyota? We take a quick look.Design and Dimensions – Let’s address the elephant in the room (pun intended). The Trailblazer is wider, taller and longer than the Fortuner. It boasts of a larger wheelbase and higher ground clearance too. The design is more modern compared to the now-dated looks of the Toyota. The Fortuner has aged gracefully and is in need of an immediate replacement if it has to fight the new contender in the looks department.Engines and Transmission – Toyota offers two engine options – a 2.5 litre diesel (142bhp power, 360Nm torque) and a 3.0 litre diesel (169bhp power, 343Nm torque). Chevrolet has only one engine on offer for the Trailblazer and that’s a 2.8 litre diesel producing 197bhp and 500 Nm torque. Need we say more who won that bout? But the Chevrolet is available in only one variant and that one features a 6-speed automatic transmission and no all-wheel drive system. Toyota on the other hand has both manual and automatic variants of the Fortuner and also offers one with all-wheel drive capabilities.Interior and Features – Even the most loyal of Fortuner fans will admit that the interiors of the Rs. 25 lakh SUV have the same look, fit-and-finish and quality of the much cheaper Innova MUV. It is perhaps the Fortuner’s major disappointment. Then comes the stingy features list which doesn’t justify its price tag. The Trailblazer on the other hand has well-appointed interiors which stand apart from its stable mate – the Captiva. It also has a good number of features which places it as a better-packaged full-size SUV.Pricing – Trailblazer will set you back by at Rs. 26.4 lakhs. Meanwhile, the Toyota Fortuner range starts at Rs. 24.17 lakhs and climbs till Rs. 26.49 lakhs (ex-showroom, New Delhi) for the top-of-the-line variant.
