2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer - Now in Orleans
The crossover SUV format isn't only designed for crawling over rocks in a huge, trail-ready vehicle. The Chevy Trailblazer takes all the rugged safety aspects of the SUV format, and packages them into a chunky subcompact frame that's perfectly designed for nimble, confident urban duties as well as forays away from the pavement. We now have the latest 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer available for test drive at our Orleans showroom, and here are the highlights you can look forward to enjoying.
The Trailblazer's small frame offers an outsize impression of rugged dependability, paired with a large splash of sporty confidence to create a small SUV with a big road presence. However, despite its relatively small dimensions, the Trailblazer still feels like a spacious, comfortable car that will handle urban duties in style.
Powertrain and Performance
There are two engine choices for the 2022 Trailblazer, both aimed squarely at confident city driving without the excesses of huge horsepower boasts. The entry-level model has a 1.2L turbo engine making 137 hp, passed through a continuously variable transmission (CVT) to front-wheel drive.
Drivers looking for a little more can trade up to the 1.3L turbo mill which pushes the ponies up to 155 hp, adds in a silky nine-speed automatic transmission, and also offers an all-wheel drive option. However, both configurations offer plenty of pep around crowded city streets, with agile handling and tight cornering completing the experience.
The Trailblazer boasts a highly respectable fuel economy rating in line with its intended daily driving use, with the leanest front-wheel drive configurations offering 8.1L / 100km in the city and 7.1L / 100km on the highway. Adding all-wheel drive increases the consumption to 9L (city) and 7.8L (highway), but the Chevy is still an attractively economical SUV to drive in any of its formats.
Interior and Infotainment Technology
The Trailblazer's interior offers spacious comfort coupled with the reassuringly high driving position of the SUV format. The rear seats are plenty comfortable enough for two adults, unlike in many other subcompact SUVs, while cargo flexibility is enhanced by both folding rear seats and a foldable front passenger seat.
Infotainment is handled by a choice of 7" or 8" touchscreen displays, complete with dual Bluetooth capability, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. Higher trim levels add wireless smartphone integration, along with a premium Bose seven-speaker audio system.
Safety and Driver Assist Systems
The Trailblazer earned an overall five-star rating in crash tests by the NHTSA, and backs up the physical safety with a range of active driver assist systems. Key standard and available highlights include:
- Forward collision warnings with pedestrian detection.
- Automated forward emergency braking.
- Lane departure warnings.
- Lane keep assist.
- Adaptive cruise control.
