The new Holden Trailblazer has been revealed today, accompanied by confirmation of top five-star safety rating with the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP).

Adopting the new face from its substantially-updated sibling, the Colorado ute, the Trailblazer also takes the long-serving nameplate from sister company Chevrolet.

Based on the crash tests of the recently-launched Colorado LTZ 4X4 dual cab ute, the Trailblazer scores an overall 34.49 out of a possible 37, including a ‘Good’ rating for pedestrian protection – retaining the maximum five-star rating of its predecessor, the Colorado 7.

Other notable mentions are the Colorado/Trailblazer’s score of 16 out of 16 for side impact protection, along with full marks in the pole test.2016-holden-colorado-z71-15

Standard safety equipment on all Trailblazer variants include dual front, side chest and head-protecting curtain airbags (which extend across all three seating rows) along with a driver’s knee airbag. Seat belt reminders are also fitted for the first and second rows.

ABS, automatic headlights, daytime-running lights, electronic brakeforce distribution, ESC, emergency brake assist, hill-start assist, rear collision avoidance, roll stability system and trailer stability control are all listed as standard equipment across the entire Trailblazer range.

Stay tuned for more Holden Trailblazer updates in the coming weeks in the lead-up to the model’s official media launch later this month.
