The current third-generation Chevy Trailblazer launched for the 2021 model year as an all-new small crossover, with the latest 2023 model year introducing only a few small updates and changes. Motivation is once again sourced from one of two engine options, including the turbocharged 1.2L I3 LIH gasoline engine, rated at 137 horsepower at 5,000 rpm and 162 pound-feet of torque, and the turbocharged 1.3L I3 L3T gasoline engine, rated at 155 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 174 pound-feet of torque at 1,500 rpm.
Under the body panels, the Chevy Trailblazer crossover rides on the GM VSS-F vehicle set. Production of the 2023 Chevy Trailblazer got under way at the GM Bupyeong plant in South Korea on April 24th, 2022.

The supply is not just tight , its non existent! The retailers in this area do not have any on their lots!
By the time GM gets inventory on the ground the car will be 4-5 years old.
It will be the same for the new Trax , the vehicle could sell , but there will not be any inventory !
I don’t understand why GM continues to introduce vehicles that they cannot produce and this is known before they launch them !!
There are 6 on the lot in my home town… The TB is already lagging behind the competition, so I don’t even want to imagine how outclassed it will be in 4-5 years.
Now look at that. For those looking to buy the new Trax, it will be similarly unavailable on the dealer lots. Dont know how GM Korea sucks in producing enough Trailblazers, while KIA and Hyundai have enough crossovers available for their dealers in the US and else where.
