Back in November of 2019, the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer made its U.S. debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show, reviving the Trailblazer nameplate with an all-new small crossover. Offered in select markets, including North America and South Korea, there a few differences worth pointing out between the North American version of the vehicle and version that’s sold in South Korea – including these three key features.
Compared to the North American-spec Chevy Trailblazer, the South Korean-spec Chevy Trailblazer offers three key comfort features that the North American vehicle does not, including ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, and head-up display.
Promotional images show each of these three features on the South Korean-spec Chevy Trailblazer.
Ventilated seats are a particularly useful feature, as they can provide a great deal of comfort in hot and muggy weather, while a heated steering wheel is a nice feature for those customers living in colder climates. Finally, head-up display adds a nice dash of technological pizzazz to the vehicle.
In a related note, General Motors also recently launched the 2021 Chevy Traiblazer RS Midnight Edition in South Korea, capitalizing on the model’s success in the market.
As a reminder, the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer is assembled by GM Korea at the GM Bupyeong plant in Bupyeong-gu, Incheon, South Korea, then exported to North America for sale. The crossover is also assembled by GM China at the Dong Yue plant in Yantai, Shangdong, China, for sale in the Chinese market.
Under the skin, the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer rides on the GM VSS-F platform. The crossover is offered with two engine options, including the turbocharged 1.2L I3 LIH gas unit, which produces 137 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque, and the turbocharged 1.3L I3 L3T gas unit, which produces 155 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque.
