General Motors has already added a number of parts for the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer to its official accessories catalog, including a body decal package and a front plastic tubular nudge bar. Now we’re turning our attention to yet another 2021 Trailblazer accessory, the black Grille Bar Insert.
GM Accessories says the black Grille Bar Insert for the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer was “designed and engineered to enhance your vehicle’s exterior,” and will help give it a more “distinctive appearance.” The plastic grille insert is also “manufactured from high-quality materials that are tested and backed by Chevrolet,” the automaker says and comes fully painted and ready to install on the vehicle.
This custom grille bar insert costs $245.00 USD from the Chevrolet Accessories catalog and comes with a warranty equivalent to the balance of the vehicle’s bumper-to-bumper coverage or 12 months / 12,000 miles.
Chevy advises buyers of this accessory grille insert for the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer to use the proper cleaning products for the specific material and, if necessary, pretest the product before using it “to determine if it will alter the color and texture of the material.”
The example photo of the grille insert provided by GM Accessories shows it installed on a Mosaic Black Metallic 2021 Chevy Trailblazer. This is a poor choice, in our opinion, as the black insert blends in with the vehicle’s exterior color and makes it hard to identify. This insert is the mustache-style element that runs just below the Chevy Bowtie logo and is usually finished in chrome on stock Trailblazers.

The 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer starts at $19,995 in the United States. The subcompact crossover is built at the GM Incheon plant in South Korea and comes standard with a turbocharged 1.2L LIH three-cylinder engine. A turbocharged 1.3L L3T three-cylinder is available as an option. The 1.2L engine makes 137 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque, while the 1.3L is good for 155 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque.
