With eighteen (18) storage areas, Equinox gives you the space to store your gear in anticipation for that spontaneous after work hike and cargo bins to store your reusable grocery bags. The deep center console is a convenient location to hide your valuables, such as your laptop or purse while you are out experiencing your world.

The 2012 Chevy Camaro ZL1 will run from 0-60 mph in just 3.9 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 184 mph when equipped with the six-speed automatic transmission. It boasts 580 horsepower, which is more than the Audi R8 GT, the Maserati Gran Turismo and the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG.
Better yet, Chevy tells us that the new Camaro ZL1 will start at $54,995, including its unique Performance Traction Management system and GM’s superb Magnetic Ride Control suspension.
Since the ZL1 already comes well equipped, there are only six options available on the car. If you want the fastest ZL1, you’ll need to check the box by the six-speed automatic transmission, which will set you back another $1,185. Other options include 20-inch, bright aluminum wheels ($470), a power sunroof ($900), a stripe package ($470) a carbon fiber hood insert ($600) and an interior suede package ($500).
As Chris Perry, vice president of global Chevrolet marketing points out: “There are very few cars at any price that can match the power, features and track-capability of the Camaro ZL-1.” To illustrate that point, Chevy compares its ZL1 to the 2012 Ford Shelby GT500, which isn’t nearly as well equipped for track duty as the Camaro ZL1.
The problem is that a new 650-horsepower 2013 Shelby GT500 was announced today, and it’s got the Camaro ZL1 firmly in its sights. We’ll hold off proclaiming a “king of the pony cars” until we have a chance to drive both, but the Camaro ZL1 is facing a 70 horsepower deficit from a newly track-tuned Shelby GT500 before it even launches.
We suspect that Ford guys will opt for the Shelby, while bowtie fans will gravitate towards the Camaro. Even if Chevy can’t close the horsepower gap prior to the ZL1’s launch, they’ll surely do so within a year or two. It’s all about bragging rights, and Chevy won’t be happy until its high-end Camaro out-performs the Shelby GT500 on paper and on the track.
Whatever you brand allegiance now is a good time to be a fan of horsepower.

Chevrolet’s toughest, most- refined midsize sport utility vehicle, the TrailBlazer, made its global debut today at the opening of the Dubai International Motor Show in the Middle East.
The robust seven-seat show vehicle previews Chevrolet’s latest SUV offering, which will be sold around the world, beginning with Thailand in early 2012.
The new-generation TrailBlazer combines the hauling and towing capability of a body-on-frame SUV with the ride comfort and efficiency of a crossover. Developed in tandem with the all-new Chevrolet Colorado pickup by GM do Brasil, it shares the same architecture as its truck sibling, with a chassis tuned to combine heavy-duty off-road capability with refined city driving.
The show vehicle features an all-wheel-drive system and is powered by GM’s new 2.8-liter Duramax turbo-diesel engine, which features a variable-geometry turbocharger for an optimal combination of performance and fuel economy.
“It is a reflection of the importance of the Middle East market for General Motors that a vehicle as important as TrailBlazer is making its global debut at this show,” said GM Middle East Operations President and Managing Director John Stadwick. “Without question, the new TrailBlazer will be one of the biggest and toughest members of the Chevrolet family – the perfect vehicle to take on the Middle East’s competitive midsize SUV segment.
“Although this is a show vehicle, the overall design is faithful to the production version that will arrive in Chevrolet showrooms next year. TrailBlazer will be the ideal fit, not only for consumers in the Middle East, but in every place around the world where it will be sold.”
According to Brad Merkel, GM’s global vehicle line executive for midsize trucks and SUVs, TrailBlazer offers the strength, design, capability and refinement needed to compete with the world’s best off-road vehicles.
“The growing markets of the world want flexibility. That means power and capability combined with comfort and efficiency,” Merkel said. “TrailBlazer does it all. You can tow anything, go anywhere, comfortably seat seven people, and do so with the fuel efficiency associated with a smaller, less capable vehicle. It’s the complete package.”
Exterior Design – Sophisticated Muscle
TrailBlazer’s bold road presence was created by the GM South America Design Center in São Caetano do Sul, Brazil, and shares a number of design cues with its sister vehicle, the Chevrolet Colorado.
Exterior highlights include a “body in-wheels out” design that delivers high approach and departure angles. A dramatic power dome in the hood combined with a raised cowl gives the TrailBlazer a strong, purposeful appearance. Higher-mounted dual projector headlamps are positioned beneath the power dome, emphasizing the visual strength in the face of the vehicle.
Also prominent is the contemporary dual-port grille – an unmistakable Chevrolet cue – that carries a three-dimensional grille mesh. It is complemented by polished aluminium decor trims in the fascias, rockers, belt line, tailgate and roof rack. Tri-coat pearlescent white exterior paint and integrated LED front and rear fog lamps provide a premium appearance.
Additional exterior details include:
- Highly detailed sheet metal work in the hood, door panels and rear quarters that blend layers of natural light for a rich, uncluttered, natural surface appearance;
- Front and rear LED Chevrolet signature lighting housed within sculpted aluminum decorative bezels;
- Custom dual-finish, painted and polished 20-inch aluminum wheels fitted with 20-inch Cooper Zeon LTZ tires;
- Exterior mirror-mounted LED turn signals.
“TrailBlazer delivers a great combination of capabilities, from negotiating off-road trails to daily city driving, that we wanted to convey visually,” said Matt Noone, director of design for GM do Brasil. “There’s an obvious sense of muscle in the design, but at the same time a very sophisticated appearance in line with the world’s premium SUVs. From every angle, TrailBlazer looks agile and athletic, with a refined finish that makes it a vehicle our customers will aspire to own.”
Interior – Spacious, Refined and Flexible
Signature Chevrolet cues continue inside, conveying spaciousness, flexibility and an upscale appearance in all control interfaces.
With a flowing instrument panel, integrated center stack, and signature Chevrolet dual cockpit design, the interior of the all-new TrailBlazer combines car-like characteristics with the boldness expected of a true SUV. The seven-passenger interior offers intuitive three-row tumble and/or fold-flat seat versatility and best-in-class spaciousness in the third row.
“We made the seating both flexible and intuitive. There’s no need to pull out the owner’s manual to figure out how to configure the seats,” Noone said. “The third row in this SUV isn’t an afterthought. It’s an authentic third row where people can sit comfortably for long trips. Combine that with luxurious interior appointments and it is easy to see why TrailBlazer really is an all-purpose vehicle.”
Additional interior details include:
- An overhead console that integrates the HVAC system with onboard infotainment;
- Second row 60/40 split seats with single latch forward gravity tumble, fold-flat capability, and six-degree seat-back reclining along with integrated folding armrests with cup holders;
- Third row 50/50 split seats with center console storage and fold-flat capability;
- Flat floor storage from the front row rearward when all seats are folded flat, which is designed to provide extreme load capability;
- Auxiliary power plug with USB and Bluetooth connectivity.
Contrasting trim used with the light-colored leather seating, mat dark wood trim accented with chrome, and dual-grained surfaces used on the upper and lower IP provide a premium feel. A number of storage compartments are located throughout the interior, including a covered center bin for concealment of valuable items, and a large, dual glovebox.
Other features include a dual-zone, digital climate control system and the latest in infotainment technology.
