Last week, General Motors officially launched the refreshed 2021 Chevrolet S10 in Brazil – the second and last update of the mid-size pickup that the company has marketed internationally since 2012. Now, we have the first images of the 2021 Chevrolet TrailBlazer SUV, which receives a styling refresh of its own in addition to technological enhancements.
As we previously reported, and in keeping with tradition, the refreshed 2021 Chevrolet TrailBlazer SUV adopts the same front-end changes made to the S10 pickup, bringing it up to date with Chevrolet’s latest corporate identity. Preliminary images show that the 2021 TrailBlazer midsize SUV adopts the distinctive new front-end design of the range-topping S10 High Country.
As such, the 2021 Chevrolet TrailBlazer wears the prominent horizontal bar grille with the CHEVROLET script in high relief and the gold bow tie at the bottom right. This design is inspired by the distinctive grille featured on several variants of the brand’s North American pickup line, such as the new Colorado ZR2, the Silverado 1500 (Work Truck and Custom) and the Silverado HD (Work Truck, Custom, LT and LTZ).
Unlike the 2021 S10, which offers a different front-end design for lesser-equipped variants, this chrome-accented grille comes standard on the 2021 TrailBlazer, which once again appears to be offered in South America in Premier trim only. The rest of the body-on-frame SUV remains unchanged on the outside, with a new wheel design and a couple of new colors as the only novelties.
The 2021 Chevrolet TrailBlazer SUV’s interior was updated with the latest connectivity and safety features from GM. Among them, there’s a new-generation infotainment system with eight-inch touchscreen that supports wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration, high-speed on-board Wi-Fi, a new instrument panel, Forward Collision Alert with Automatic Braking and six airbags.
The 2021 Chevrolet TrailBlazer SUV is expected to launch in Brazil shortly, when an official image gallery, all equipment details and pricing should be revealed. The model will maintain the 2.8L I-4 XLD28 turbo-diesel Duramax engine that delivers 200 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque, though upgraded with an improved turbine for better acceleration.
