2019 Ford Everest vs Holden Trailblazer video review

By Fraser Stronach, 17 Dec 2018 4x4 Comparisons

Can Trailblazer keep the 2.0-litre bi-turbo diesel-powered Everest honest?

2019 Ford Everest vs Holden Trailblazer video feature

WITH the Ford Everest now available with the 2.0-litre bi-turbo-diesel engine that was introduced with the Ranger Raptor, we thought we’d line it up against the Holden Trailblazer.

Both of these seven-seat vehicles are based on utes – the Everest on the Ranger; the Trailblazer based on the Colorado – and both claim 500Nm, even though the Trailblazer runs a much larger 2.8-litre four-cylinder diesel engine.

The Everest’s new engine, mated to a 10-speed auto, produces more power and torque than the bigger capacity 3.2-litre engine also available in the Everest shed. The Trailblazer is available in three equipment grades: LT, LTZ and Z71, with the Z71 largely adding cosmetic enhancements.
