Slotting in between Chevy Trax and Chevy Equinox in General Motors’ crossover lineup, the Chevy Trailblazer has been picking up momentum as of late on the sales charts. Now, the Bow Tie brand’s subcompact crossover just posted a strong month of sales.
Over the course of May 2023, the Chevy Trailblazer posted robust sales figures. In fact, May 2023 is the best month of May ever in regard to the subcompact crossover’s retail deliveries.
Notably, sales of the Trailblazer have been on the rise in the past few months. In fact, when compared to figures from the previous year, sales have jumped over 200 percent to 27,951 units in Q1 2023.

This new development comes as inventory levels of the Trailblazer actually fell slightly for May 2023, where there were approximately 4,200 units on the ground at dealerships, with another 7,700 in transit. This gave the Bow Tie crossover a 12 days supply, meaning there is sufficient Trailblazer inventory in dealerships to last roughly 12 days at the current sales pace.
It’s worth noting that as of June 1st, there were 3,600 units of the Chevy Trailblazer on dealer lots, with another 9,500 units en route.
As a reminder, the Chevy Trailblazer is set to receive a mid-cycle refresh for the upcoming 2024 model year. This refresh will feature a redesigned front fascia, an overhauled interior, new wheel designs unique to each trim level, and a bevy of new standard features. Production of the 2024 Trailblazer is currently scheduled to kick off in July 2023.
In regard to the current 2023 model, the Trailblazer is available with one of two engine choices, including the turbocharged 1.2L I3 LIH gasoline engine, rated at 137 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque, and the turbocharged 1.3L I3 L3T gasoline engine, rated at 155 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque. Models equipped with the LIH engine, as well as examples with the L3T engine and FWD, are mated to the continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), while 1.3L engines with AWD are mated to the GM nine-speed automatic transmission.
