Anxiously awaiting the arrival of the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer? At McCluskey Chevy, we’ve done our best to gather all of the information we can about this exciting vehicle. This small SUV will fill the void between the Chevy Trax and Chevy Equinox, serving as a small SUV with a performance-driven design. If you’re looking for a bold and advanced small family vehicle, the all-new Trailblazer could be the right choice for you.
The 2021 Chevy Trailblazer is expected to arrive at dealerships across the nation in early 2020, but this vehicle has already established a steady following of interested drivers. This is mainly due to its sporty and unique appearance, which stands out among other vehicles in the Chevy SUV lineup. The Trailblazer features a flat roof with a standard two-tone color design, which enhances the vehicle’s bold grille and aggressive contouring. Despite its sporty and bold appearance, the Trailblazer also remains incredibly sleek and modern.
On the inside, the boldness continues, and an abundance of standard and available features make for one of the most advanced interiors on the market. Drivers can enjoy a large touchscreen display at the center of the cabin, as well as features like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, and an impressive sound system. Convenience and luxury features will also be readily available on the Trailblazer and may include options like heated front seats, a leather-wrapped and heated steering wheel, and leather upholstery.
Overall, the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer is one of the most exciting upcoming vehicles on the market and is set to extend Chevy’s line of popular SUVs. This impressive vehicle could be the right choice for you, yet it’s important to take a closer look at what this vehicle has to offer.
Not much is known about the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer in terms of performance, but with its position in the lineup existing between the Trax and Equinox, we can expect the Trailblazer to offer similar performance specs to those models. With its performance-driven design, the Trailblazer will likely fall closer in line to the Equinox. The Equinox has a 2.0L engine offering a maximum towing capacity of 3,500 LBS when equipped with the available trailering package.
The Equinox also offers high fuel economy ratings, which the Trailblazer will likely improve on as a smaller and newer vehicle.
Ratings for the 2020 Chevy Equinox are estimated at up to 26 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway, which is an excellent spec for the compact SUV class. We can also expect the Trailblazer to come standard in FWD with an available AWD option.
The base engine on the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer will likely match the Equinox’s 1.5L turbocharged engine, which will serve as the most efficient choice and is the perfect option for drivers looking for a vehicle for their daily commute. Depending on which engine you choose, you will likely enjoy a 6-speed or 9-speed transmission, with both offering smooth transitions and quiet acceleration at high speeds.
In the category of performance, the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer is expected to excel. Drivers can look forward to excellent efficiency, power, and capability to combine for an incredibly versatile small SUV.
Thanks to teaser photos released of the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer, we know that the interior of this all-new SUV is bold, advanced, and upscale. The interior design is certainly performance-inspired, but also offers sleek and modern features. Red accents appear bold against the Trailblazer's black interior, while sharp lines and unique shapes further enhance the SUV’s cabin.
Positioned between the Trax and Equinox, the Trailblazer will serve as a small but spacious SUV with comfortable seating for up to five passengers. Drivers can expect configurable seating, like power-fold flat seating, as well as plenty of cargo room with or without passengers on board. Numerous storage compartments will be made available throughout the cabin of the Trailblazer, which will likely be well concealed in an effort to maintain a sleek interior.
Like other Chevy vehicles, the Trailblazer will almost certainly offer a large touchscreen display as standard, along with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth. Features like a 4G LTE WiFi hotspot, navigation, and wireless charging are expected to serve as some of the vehicle’s available entertainment features; however, all-new features could also be made available for its debut. Drivers will also be able to enjoy Chevrolet Apps to allow for personalization of their infotainment system, as well as the myChevrolet mobile app for convenient management of the Trailblazer’s diagnostics and navigation system.
As both the Trax and Equinox offer a quiet cabin with comfortable seating and upscale materials, we can expect the Trailblazer to follow suit. Chevy vehicles are typically among the top of their class in terms of interior quality, and as an all-new 2021 model, the Trailblazer will likely offer a premium interior. Drivers will also have numerous trim levels to choose from, as well as a long list of packages and accessories to further customize their vehicle. With its sporty appearance and title, the Trailblazer is expected to offer a performance-focused model which would likely offer exclusive design elements.
Meanwhile, higher trim levels will offer Chevy’s impressive luxury features, including leather upholstery, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped and heated steering wheel, and power-adjustable seating for the driver and front passenger. Overall, the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer is expected to offer one of the most upscale, advanced, and bold interiors on the market. If you’re looking for a vehicle with an interior like no other, the Trailblazer is certainly worth waiting for.
The new safety features of the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer have been well marketed, despite the scarcity of information available on this all-new model. The Trailblazer will debut with numerous standard active safety features, including Front Pedestrian Braking, Automatic Emergency Braking, and Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning.
These are incredibly advanced standard safety features, which are typically reserved for higher trim levels and packages. Optional features on the Trailblazer will include Adaptive Cruise Control, Rear Park Assist, an HD Rear Vision Camera, and more.
We can also expect the Trailblazer to offer advanced front crash prevention technology, and area that both the Trax and Equinox have performed well in across their model years. High safety scores from the NHTSA and IIHS are fully expected for this new Chevy SUV, as well as a high-reliability rating from J.D. Power. Following Chevrolet’s excellent warranty program, the Trailblazer will feature a basic warranty, powertrain warranty, and roadside assistance plan combining for years of coverage and savings.
With Chevrolet’s dedication to safety, the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer is expected to offer class-leading safety performance. Drivers looking for a safe family vehicle or daily commuter will appreciate what this vehicle has to offer.
