The 2021 Chevy Trailblazer reintroduces to the nameplate as an all-new small crossover for select markets, and so far, the it has shown impressive sales strength. Now, GM Authority has uncovered the fastest- and slowest-turning 2021 Chevy Trailblazer trim levels.
For those who may be unaware, the vehicle turn rate referenced here is a measure of the average time it takes a particular model to sell, or rather, how long that model “sits” on a dealer lot.
According to documents seen by GM Authority, the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer is turning at an average of 36 days, as of the beginning of December. The fastest-turning trim level is the sporty RS, with an average of 29 days. Meanwhile, the mid-range LS trim level is the slowest-turning trim at 51 days.
For reference, an average of 60 days to turn is considered very good in the auto industry. As such, the low time to turn for the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer demonstrates just how strong demand is for the new crossover.
As GM Authority covered previously, the new Chevy Trailblazer RS is exceeding all expectations, doubling Chevrolet order and sales forecast at launch and helping to raise average transaction prices. Sitting alongside the Activ trim in the model lineup, the Trailblazer RS features LED tail lamps, a leather-wrapped, flat-bottom steering wheel, a leather-wrapped shift knob, 18-inch wheels, a black mesh grille, and black badging.
What’s more, the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer is punching one weight class higher than intended, competing with C-segment rivals, even though it is positioned in the B-segment.
The 2021 Chevy Trailblazer recorded 10,322 units delivered in the U.S. during Q3 of 2020, and remained the fastest-turning vehicle in the industry during the time period. U.S. sales for the first nine months of the 2020 calendar year are reported at 17,024 units total.
The sales pace is expected to accelerate as additional units are produced. In fact, General Motors plans to cut production of the Chevy Trax by 30 percent heading into the 2021 calendar year, with the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer taking up the newfound production capacity.
The 2021 Chevy Trailblazer rides on the GM VSS-F platform, with assembly for the North American market taking place at the GM Bupyeong plant in South Korea. The Trailblazer is also produced at the Dong Yue plant in China. Engine options include a pair of turbocharged three-cylinder gas units, including the 1.2L LIH and the 1.3L L3T.
