For more than two decades, the Trailblazer has delighted drivers with its rugged exterior and innovative features, providing a durable midsize SUV that's steady, safe, and fun to drive. Whether you choose the base LS, the lush LT, the sporty RS, or the off-road ACTIV, you'll love the tight handling, smooth ride, and generous accommodations of the 2024 Chevy Trailblazer. This nameplate has seen scores of tweaks, upgrades, and improvements over the years, but one thing that's remained the same is Chevy's dedication to excellence.
The 2024 Chevy Trailblazer improves on previous years with new styling options, an interior revamp, expanded standard safety features, and more. It comes standard with a zippy 1.2L EcoTec Turbo I-3 engine, or you can opt for the 1.3L EcoTec Turbo I-3 for a boost in torque and horsepower. Both engines give you a balanced blend of power and fuel efficiency. If off-roading is in your future, you'll enjoy the specially tuned suspension that comes with the ACTIV trim, alongside Sport Terrain tires and selectable drive modes that can adapt your handling to the terrain.
No matter which 2024 Chevy Trailblazer you choose, the bowtie brand's focus on safety, technology, and capability will be glaringly apparent, proving that this is one of the most well-rounded SUVs on the market.
Chevy has always been on the cutting edge of safety technology for their vehicles, and the 2024 Chevy Trailblazer is no different. For this model year, Chevy has improved on safety by including additional standard features. In fact, every 2024 Chevy Trailblazer brings the security of Chevy Safety Assist, a collection of driver assistance features that reinforce your confidence behind the wheel and watch over you like a guardian angel. You can expect to find the following...
Forward Collision Alert and Automatic Emergency Braking: Forward Collision Alert works best during the daytime and at speeds below 50 mph. The system is designed to help prevent front collisions by alerting you when an object is in your path. If you're unable to respond in time, the system will begin braking on your behalf. It can also enhance your braking to reduce the chance or magnitude of impact.
Front Pedestrian Braking: Much like the Forward Collision Alert system, this feature helps you avoid pedestrians in the roadway. You will receive visual and audible alerts should an object enter your path from the side. (This feature also works in concert with Automatic Emergency Braking.)
Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning: Depending on your settings, this system gives you a gentle to moderate nudge of the steering wheel, letting you know that you've swayed too far out of your lane. It will not activate if your turn signal is engaged.
Following Distance Indicator: The Following Distance Indicator helps you maintain a safe distance between you and the vehicle ahead of you. This is crucial when there are sudden changes or when you have a new driver at the wheel who's just getting used to understanding traffic flow.
IntelliBeam High Beam Assist: This clever feature watches the area before you and automatically turns on or off your high beams depending on if the road ahead is open or has oncoming traffic. This system is quite helpful if you're navigating a new area and need to focus on the road.
HD Rear Vision Camera: This indispensable tool gives you the guidance you need to reverse safely or navigate tight parking spaces. While it's still advised that you check your mirrors, it's no longer imperative that you twist your head about your shoulders to monitor your rearward progress.
The driver assistance features of the Chevy Safety Assist suite are essential to helping you drive safely, no matter how experienced you are behind the wheel. For those just learning, the 2024 Chevy Trailblazer is equipped with a "Teen Driver mode," wherein you can review your child's driving and limit some capabilities like max speed and media volume.
In addition to enhanced safety features, Chevy also offers state-of-the-art cabin technology in the 2024 Chevy Trailblazer. Not only can your smartphone connect seamlessly to your infotainment interface through wireless Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, but you'll have reliable access to your contacts, playlists, and telemetry data through the standard 11.0-inch touchscreen. Keyless Push Button Start is also standard, providing you with a more efficient way to get going.
Even better, the 2024 Chevy Trailblazer now comes standard with the myChevrolet app, which lets you control certain functions of your Trailblazer using your smartphone, even when you're not near it. This tool allows you to check the status of your Trailblazer's functional parts, including the oil life and tire pressure. Remote access through the app also lets you stop or start your car from a distance, locate your vehicle, send destination information to the available built-in nav system, and provide real-time diagnostics.
The myChevrolet app is easy to download and is compatible with most Apple and Android phones. You can also manage your Wi-Fi hotspot from the app or manage the trailering function of your 2024 Chevy Trailblazer. It also lets you customize your infotainment system, giving you quick access to your most used features. Other resources include a My Rewards program that lets you earn points to redeem toward services or accessories.
Beyond the myChevrolet app, you and your passengers can enjoy an available wireless charging dock for compatible smart devices, as well as multiple standard charging ports and sound systems ranging from the standard four-speaker unit to a seven-speaker Bose option. In addition, you get up to three months of OnStar Safety and Security coverage across all models, which gives you increased peace of mind thanks to roadside assistance, automatic crash response, and the OnStar Guardian app, depending on your plan. You can continue coverage after the three-month trial or upgrade your plan anytime for access to additional services.
If part of the reason you want an SUV is for the flexibility of off-roading or cargo space, this section is for you. The 2024 Chevy Trailblazer engineers had travel and adventure in mind when they designed this vehicle. From its fold-flat seats (which include the front passenger seat) to the two-level reversible load floor, the Trailblazer gives you the flexibility you need to enjoy any activity.
In total, you get 8.5 feet of cargo length with the rear and passenger seats folded flat. With just the rear seats folded down, you get up to 54.4 cu.ft. of cargo space; with all seats up, the cargo area affords 25.3 cu.ft. for storage, and you can accessorize this space with an all-weather cargo mat. There's an available Hands-Free Liftgate with Projection Light to help you with loading and unloading; swipe your foot under the rear bumper to activate it. You can even adjust the Liftgate height to suit your needs.
For off-roading adventures, the ACTIV trim offers an available all-wheel drive that lets you choose between three drive modes. This trim would make the most out of the 2024 Trailblazer's trailering capacity of 1,000 lbs, allowing you to haul a lightweight camper for wilderness adventures. You will need an accessory hitch for trailering as well as an understanding of the Trailering section in your owner's manual.
If you opt for the sporty RS trim, you'll get a stylized mesh grille, dual exhaust outlets, 19-inch wheels, and the sleekest interior of the four trims. Both the ACTIV and RS have an available two-tone roof, which would add a further touch of playfulness to your Trailblazer. Ask our knowledgeable sales team about each trim to ensure you choose the one that best fits your needs—or stop in for a test drive to get the full effect.
