The 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer will start at $19,995 when it goes on sale in the United States next spring.
For that price, buyers will get themselves into the entry-level Trailblazer L trim. Standard equipment includes a 7-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto along with a suite of active safety technologies, including forward collision alert with emergency braking and lane keep assist. This model will also come equipped with the turbocharged 1.2-liter LIH three-cylinder engine, good for 137 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque, and a continuously variable automatic transmission.
Stepping up to the Trailblazer LS model, which starts at $22,495, opens up the powertrain options a bit. The LS can be equipped with all-wheel drive for an extra $2,000, which will also add the more powerful turbocharged 1.3-liter L3T engine. The slightly larger three-cylinder is good for 155 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque and is paired with an nine-speed automatic when paired with all-wheel drive. The LS also gets larger 17-inch wheels as part of its standard equipment package.
The 1.3-liter three-cylinder is a standalone option on the Trailblazer LT trim level and up, available with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. The LT starts at $24,595 for a 1.2-liter model with front-wheel drive and adds more equipment to the mix.
Meanwhile, the Trailblazer Activ model starts at $26,395. Serving as the off-road inspired trim level in the range, it comes standard with a faux front skid plate, unique damper tuning, different 17-inch wheels and Hankook Sport Terrain tires. It comes standard with the 1.3-liter engine and front-wheel drive, with all-wheel drive costing $1,500 extra.
The Trailblazer RS serves as the range-topper, priced from $26,395. This model gets its own unique exterior appearance with a sporty front fascia, gloss black exterior trim and RS badging. It also comes standard with the 1.3-liter engine and front-wheel drive, with all-wheel drive also only costing $1,500 extra here.
The 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer will hit Chevy dealerships in early 2020. It will be built at the GM Bupyoeng Plant in South Korea.
