Chevy introduced the 2021 Trailblazer as the little sibling of the Blazer. The size of the vehicle fits in between the Chevy Trax and the Equinox. The Trailblazer is very similar to the one Chevy debuted at the Shanghai Auto Show. Like the Blazer, it has sharp angles, a larger grille, and angular headlights. The cabin is taller and boxier than the full-size Blazer. The RS trim will have an option for a two-tone roof. The Trailblazer will most likely share the same platform and powertrains at the Buick Encore GX due to its size. However, Chevy has not officially confirmed that speculation.
The Chevy Trailblazer will come with standard automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection and lane-assist. Other features will be available as an upgrade option, such as, rear-camera mirror and adaptive cruise control. The Trailblazer was last produced as a 2009 model year vehicle. It was originally discontinued due to gasoline prices, consequently, it was replaced with the Traverse. Steve Majoros, director of Chevrolet passenger car and crossover marketing, said, “The Trailblazer’s great design enable more personalization. Trailblazer is a continuation of the design language for Chevy’s crossover family and extends our momentum into one of the industry’s fastest-growing segments. These features deliver added confidence and peace of mind behind the wheel, helping drivers monitor the vehicle’s surroundings and the driving environment with an available combination of camera, short-range radars and ultrasonic sensors.” The Trailblazer will be available early next year with pricing starting under $24,995.
