Subcompact SUVs have risen through the ranks of the automotive world to become one of the most popular vehicle styles in the industry. It’s easy to see why these mini-size SUVs are so popular – they offer more storage space than hatchbacks, a lifted ride, and plenty of exciting features at an affordable price point. If you’re in the market for a subcompact SUV, we have the perfect recommendation for you: the Chevrolet Trailblazer.
The Trailblazer is a revival of one of Chevy’s former SUVs from the early 2000s, and is one of the newer models in their lineup. This subcompact offers a spacious cabin and a generous amount of cargo space, all while providing the easy driving style and conservative fuel usage of a car. Plus, the Trailblazer is a Chevy, so you know you can count on it to be durable for the long-haul. In a word, it’s the ideal subcompact SUV.
If you’d like to explore all of the exciting features and offerings of the Chevrolet Trailblazer in person, you can browse our available Trailblazer models in-person or online at Bill Cramer Chevrolet Buick GMC. While you’re shopping with us, be sure to ask any of our friendly team members about our current deals and savings opportunities that can make your new Chevy Trailblazer even more affordable.
After over a decade off the market, Chevy has brought the Trailblazer back for the 2021 model year, and there’s quite a bit to love about this subcompact SUV. There are five trim levels available for the 2021 model year:
The base L trim offers more than enough features including a Wi-Fi hotspot, a 7-inch touchscreen wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto, and 3.5-inch driver information display. Progressing upwards through the available trims offers premium amenities such as leatherette upholstery, remote start, a larger touchscreen, a larger driver information display, a 6-speaker audio system, and even more.
You’ll be able to seat five in the two roomy rows of the Trailblazer, and LATCH tethers ensure that car seats are welcome in this SUV. The Trailblazer was designed to offer ample headspace and legroom in each row so that everyone stays comfortable whether you’re dashing to the grocery store or jaunting off on a winding road trip. You’ll also have plenty of cargo space in the Trailblazer, where there is 23.3 cubic-feet behind the second row and 54.4 cubic-feet behind the first row. You can also fold the front passenger seat completely flat to make way for cargo up to 8-feet long.
There are two engines available for the 2021 model year: a 137-horsepower 1.2-liter ECOTEC with 162 pound-feet of torque and a 155-horsepower 1.3-liter ECOTEC with 174 pound-feet of torque. Both engines pair with a nine-speed automatic transmission that shifts seamlessly as you accelerate on highways. Front-wheel drive is standard for the Trailblazer, but all-wheel drive is available in every trim level.
Chevy is committed to keeping you safe while you drive, which is why the Chevy Safety Assist suite is standard on every Trailblazer trim. This innovative set of driver assistance features includes automatic emergency braking, forward collision alert, front pedestrian braking, a following distance indicator, lane-keeping assist with lane-departure warning, and IntelliBeam headlights.
The Trailblazer as we know it originated as a top-level trim for the 1990 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer. Chevy kept this trim going through the 2001 model year, then separated it out as its own SUV for the 2002 model year.
This new SUV had a successful run from 2002 to 2008 when it was then discontinued to make space for the still-popular Chevy Traverse.
As the small SUV market has only grown in the last 13 years, Chevy knew it was time for the Trailblazer to make a triumphant return to the lineup for the 2021 model year. Offering everything shoppers love about subcompact SUVs, it’s safe to say that the new Trailblazer is the best one yet.
