The Chevy Trailblazer is one of the hottest crossovers on the market. Demand is so high, in fact, that it was recognized as being one of the fastest-selling vehicles in June 2022.
A recent study by automotive research site iSeeCars found that the Chevy Trailblazer spent an average of 24.1 days on dealer lots before selling, placing it 16th out of the top 20 vehicles, selling for an average of $27,523. For comparison, the fastest-selling vehicle was the Subaru Crosstrek, which spent an average of 12.9 days on the lot, followed by the Honda Civic and the Subaru Forester which respectively spent an average of 14.1 and 14.7 days on dealer lots. Notably, the Trailblazer was the only GM-built vehicle to make the list last month.
In order to compile its list of top 20 fastest-selling vehicles, iSeeCars analyzed over 224,000 new and used vehicles sold in June 2022, and found that the average new car took 37.2 days to sell, up from 33.1 days recorded in May 2022.
“Both new and used car prices rose in June over May as inventory constraints continue to plague the new and used car market,” said iSeeCars Executive Analyst Karl Brauer. “Rising interest rates and high gas prices have also heightened demand for more efficient and affordable vehicles.”
Considering that the Chevy Trailblazer was recently given a perfect reliability score, it’s no surprise that the crossover is flying off dealer lots. As a reminder, the crossover is offered with a choice of two engine options. The first is the turbocharged 1.2L I3 LIH gasoline engine, which is rated at 137 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque. The second is the turbocharged 1.3L I3 L3T gasoline engine, rated at 155 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque.
The Trailblazer crossover rides on the GM VSS-F platform, with production of models bound for the North American market taking place at the GM Bupeyong plant in South Korea. GM is set to expand production of the Chevy Trailblazer at this facility for the 2023 model year to meet unprecedented demand for the nameplate.
