The 2022 Chevy Trailblazer will drop the L trim level, leaving the LS as the least-expensive variant in the 2022 Chevy Trailblazer lineup.
The 2022 Chevy Trailblazer arrives as the second model year of the nameplate’s all-new crossover body style, which debuted for the 2021 model year. The Trailblazer slots in between the Chevy Trax and the Chevy Equinox in Chevrolet’s current U.S. crossover lineup.
In addition to dropping the base L trim level, the 2022 Chevy Trailblazer also deletes four exterior colors previously offered for the 2021 model year, including (relevant paint codes listed in parentheses):
- Midnight Blue Metallic (G5J)
- Dark Copper Metallic (G8I)
- Scarlet Red Metallic (GIL)
- Pacific Blue Metallic (GUM)
Each of these four exterior colors will be replaced with new paint options.
The 2022 Chevy Trailblazer will also drop the Performance Package from the options list. Previously only available on the LT trim level with front-wheel-drive models, the Performance Package included the turbocharged 1.3L I3 L3T engine, as well as Sport and Snow driving modes, plus the equipment from the Driver Confidence package and the Convenience package.
As for new additions, the 2022 Chevy Trailblazer is set to offer a new heated steering wheel, which was previously offered with models sold in South Korea, but not those sold in North America. Now, however, U.S.-bound 2022-model-year vehicles will offer a heated steering wheel via the Premium Seating Package (PCL) or the Adaptive Cruise Control Package (PGY). A heated steering wheel is also standard on 2022 Trailblazer Activ and RS trim levels.
Further improvements include slightly greater fuel economy, with a 1 mpg increase to city and combined figures for models equipped with the turbocharged 1.2L I3 LIH gasoline engine. Additionally, models equipped with the turbocharged 1.3L I3 L3T gasoline engine will introduce a few small modifications to provide the driver with a quieter ride and quicker acceleration.
All 2022 Chevy Trailblazer models will come standard with SiriusXM satellite radio compatibility.
Pricing for the new 2022 Chevy Trailblazer LS starts at $22,795, including destination and freight charges.
