Holden Trailblazer Z71 announced

Holden reveals special edition Trailblazer Z71 – a seven-seater off-roader.

The Colorado ute-based Holden Trailblazer is Holden’s seven-seat, family-friendly off-roader, and is about to get the ‘Z71’ treatment.

400 models of the Special Edition Trialblazer Z71 will go on sale in Australia in June this year, adding a long list of styling enhancements to the top-spec Traiblazer LTZ.

“The Trailblazer Z71 special edition adds stand-out styling to our adventure-ready, family-friendly 4x4 SUV, showing customers they really can have it all,” said Sean Poppitt, Holden’s Director – Communications. 

Mechanically, the Z71 will remain the same as existing Trailblazer models with its all-wheel drive system and 2.8-litre turbo diesel engine, but buyers will be paying a $1000 premium for the SUV’s fresh new looks.

On the exterior, it’s all about a blacked-out visual treatment with the Z71 sporting black 18-inch alloy wheels, body side and belt line mouldings, mirrors, door handles and gloss-black b-pillars. Z71 nomenclature will appear on the hood, head rest and floor mats.

Inside, the rear-view camera and infotainment system with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto will feature, with the addition of heated front leather seats.

It’ll be available in four colours; Summit White, Absolute Red and, for an extra $550 premium, two prestige choices in Satin Steel Grey and Mineral Black.

“With its impressive performance on and off roads as well as its connectivity and active safety technology, Trailblazer has already proved itself a well-equipped performer and now with new black wheels and black styling features it can do it all with an even greater presence on the roads,” said Poppitt.
