Chevrolet Trailblazer Returns To America As A Small Crossover

It looks like GM is gorging on Chinese takeout as Chevrolet has introduced the 2021 Trailblazer just hours after Buick unveiled the 2020 Encore GX.

Originally shown at the Shanghai Auto Show, the Trailblazer is the bowtie brand’s newest small crossover. It will arrive in the United States early next year and slot in between the Trax and Equinox.

Looking virtually identical to the Chinese model, the US-spec crossover has a Blazer-like front end with a prominent grille that is flanked by stacked lighting units. Moving further back, we can see plastic body cladding, a flowing character line and a relatively flat roof. Chevrolet didn’t say much about the crossover, but confirmed plans for an RS variant which will feature a contrasting roof.

Moving into the cabin, drivers will find analog gauges which are separated by a small digital display. Elsewhere, we can see an infotainment system, minimalist switchgear and metallic accents. The model also has red flourishes and gloss black trim, but those could be exclusive to the RS variant.

Regardless, the Trailblazer will come loaded with an assortment of standard safety features. Among them are automatic emergency braking, front pedestrian braking and lane keep assist with lane departure warning. Customers can also order additional safety and convenience features such as adaptive cruise control and rear park assist.

Performance specifications will be announced closer to launch, but we can likely expect a four-cylinder petrol engine.

Chevrolet also failed to mention pricing but, since the model slots between the Trax and Equinox, it should cost around $22,000. That puts the model in a tough spot as the larger Equinox starts at just $23,800.
