Back in December 2022, GM Authority reported that production of the 2024 Chevy Trailblazer was scheduled to kick off at the GM Bupyeong plant in South Korea sometime in July 2023. Now, the fourth model of the Bow Tie brand’s subcompact crossover has officially entered production today.
The Chevy Trailblazer is set to receive a mid-cycle refresh for the 2024 model year. This revision features a redesigned front fascia, an overhauled interior, new wheel designs unique to each trim level, and a suite of new standard features.
The trim level lineup includes LS, LT, Activ, and RS, each of which includes its own front fascia, exterior lighting, and grille design. Standard safety features include Automatic Emergency Braking, Front Pedestrian Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Following Distance Indicator, and Forward Collision Alert. Adaptive Cruise Control is optional.
Under the hood, the 2024 Chevy Trailblazer is offered with a choice of two engine options, 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. Units equipped with the LIH engine, as well as units with the L3T engine and FWD, are mated to the continuously variable automatic transmission, while 1.3L engines with AWD are mated to the GM nine-speed automatic transmission. FWD is standard, while AWD is optional.
As for structure, the Trailblazer rides on the GM VSS-F vehicle set, while production for the North American market takes place at the GM Bupyeong plant in South Korea.
