If you're looking for a subcompact SUV with lots of spunk, the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer is sure to grab your attention. Sporting a striking appearance with sculpted lines and bold proportions, this SUV has a daring personality with a fresh, modern vibe. With 10 exterior Chevy Trailblazer colors, you can select a hue to suit your taste, while the standard two-tone roof on ACTIV and RS trims is a playful way to stand out from the crowd. Other details, like customized stitching in the 2021 Trailblazer ACTIV and RS trims, elevate this SUV's cabin from ordinary to outstanding.
Whether you're whizzing through the city or exploring the outskirts, the Chevy Trailblazer interior is versatile for cargo and passengers. With 40.9 inches of front-seat legroom and 39.4 inches in the back, your friends and family will ride comfortably no matter where they sit. An available flat-folding front passenger seat (2021 Trailblazer LS and higher trims) and a 40/60 split-folding second-row seat allow you to carry items up to 8.5 feet long, such as a kayak or skis. The cargo area also features a gate on each side to hold smaller items, like groceries, or you can fit a set of golf clubs by removing the gates. Maximum cargo capacity in the 2021 Trailblazer is an impressive 54.4 cubic feet.
The 2021 Trailblazer offers two turbocharged ECOTEC® three-cylinder engines - a 1.2L and a 1.3L. The 137-hp 1.2L comes standard on L, LS, and LT trims with front-wheel drive only and is equipped with a CVT. If you'd like more traction for tough conditions, the 1.3L engine (optional on 2021 Trailblazer LS and LT or standard on ACTIV and RS) is available with all-wheel drive. The all-wheel drivetrain replaces the standard CVT with a nine-speed automatic transmission; plus, the 1.3L features three drive modes (Normal, Sport, and Snow) for customized dynamics. Whether commuting to the office or road-tripping with friends, the 2021 Trailblazer can get you where you want to go.
If your travels straddle paved roads and dirt paths, the 2021 Trailblazer ACTIV is at home on the highway or the campsite. Special shock tuning and 17-inch high-gloss black machined-aluminum wheels can give you the confidence to venture beyond the asphalt, while sturdy side cladding and a functional skid plate are designed to offer added protection from dirt and debris. The 2021 ACTIV trim comes standard with the 155-hp 1.3L three-cylinder engine with 174 lb.-ft. of torque and available all-wheel drive, so you can get out there and explore.
All 2021 Trailblazers come standard with an infotainment system and seven-inch touchscreen display, which lets you stream Bluetooth audio from two devices, use voice commands, and access certain smartphone apps with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto capabilities. A rearview monitor is included on all trims, and there are standard IntelliBeam® headlamps that turn the SUV's high beams on or off according to surrounding conditions. All 2021 Trailblazer models are equipped with standard driver aids, including front pedestrian braking, automatic emergency braking, forward collision alert, following distance indicator, and lane keep assist with lane departure warning.
