Chevy Trailblazer Is the Small Crossover That You Need in Your Life

November 16th, 2020 by

The all-new Chevy Trailblazer is finally here, and it’s an ultra-revamped version of its predecessors. The 2021 Trailblazer is designed to be the perfect combination of youthful and sensible as an all new small SUV crossover, the middle option between the Chevrolet Trax and the larger Equinox.

Trim Levels

There are five available trim levels: the L, LS, LT, ACTIV, and RS. Except for the L level, each has the option between front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. The available all-wheel drive comes with a nine-speed automatic transmission, and the system delivers more rear-wheel torque for a better and safer driving experience on steep, unpaved, or slippery surfaces, which is especially helpful during inclement weather. Additionally, the AWD system has the capability to be activated or deactivated as necessary by the driver in order to preserve fuel efficiency.

In terms of the Trailblazer motor, the LS and LT have the option between a 137-horsepower 1.2-liter engine and a 155-horsepower 1.3-litre engine, and the 1.3-liter engine is standard on the ACTIV and RS. The Ecotec 155-horsepower 1.3-liter four-cylinder turbo engine features variable valve timing and direct injection, producing up to 174 ft.-lb. of torque.

The highest trim level, the RS, offers a unique Trailblazer interior that has distinctive styling and personality with unique blacked-out cues, a performance-inspired hexagon black mesh grille, black bowtie and RS badging, and dual exhaust outlets with round polished tips.

However, standard features include high-gloss black 18-inch wheels, LED tail lights, a flat-bottom leather-wrapped steering wheel, a leather-wrapped shift knob, and a rear-center armrest. More specifically, standard trailering equipment includes a four-pin trailer light connector, allowing the vehicle to tow up to 1,000 lbs.

For family and work transporting needs, the Trailblazer is one of the roomiest Chevy SUVs. The Trailblazer ground clearance ranges from 7.0-8.0 inches, depending on the trim level, with a total length of about 173.5 inches. The second-row seats have the ability to fold down to extend the 25.3 cubic foot area to a total area of 54.4 cubic feet. For longer objects, the front passenger seat can also fold flat. With excellent fuel efficiency, the vehicle is EPA rated for 26 mpg city and 30 mpg highway.

Most importantly, the 2021 Trailblazer is well-equipped for functionality, convenience, entertainment, and safety for you and your passengers. It features an Infotainment System with a 7-inch diagonal color touchscreen that seamlessly links to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for easy access to music, contacts, and navigation apps. Other connectivity features include OnStar Services, a Wi-Fi hotspot with 4G LTE data, and multiple USB ports.

Safety Features

In terms of safety features, the all-new Trailblazer comes standard with Chevy Safety Assist. This includes Automatic Emergency Braking, Front Pedestrian Braking, Lane Keep Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert, Distance Indicator, and IntelliBeam. Specific to driver-assistance technology, the vehicle also has a Rear Vision Camera and Rear Seat Reminder, and its airbags include knee and front seat-mounted, side-impact, and full-length head-curtain.

The Trailblazer is a favorite for teen drivers, and the vehicle features special Teen Driver technology that allows parents to set certain controls, such as speed alert, volume limit, Buckle to Drive, and more, to ensure their young one is being safe on the road.
