The 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer is here to tread on trails the Blazer is too big to take

The 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer goes on sale in 2020.

Chevrolet is adding yet another utility to its growing lineup that now includes the Trax, Equinox, Blazer, Traverse, Tahoe and Suburban. The new Trailblazer, on sale in 2020, will slot in between the teeny Trax and compact Equinox.

Specs and pricing will be shared later, says Chevy, but the Trailblazer will include a sportier RS trim like others in the lineup as well as a two-tone roof option. It will also come with a bunch of standard safety features like front pedestrian braking, automatic emergency braking and lane keep assist with lane departure warning. We’re guessing those will start to become standard on everything soon. Adaptive cruise, rear park assist and an HD rearview camera will be optional.

The 2021 Chevy Trailblazer will come with a handful of standard safety features and a bunch of optional ones.

Even though we don’t have engine options yet, we can speculate that it might use the Trax’s 1.4-liter Ecotec turbo-four making 138 hp and 148 lb-ft. In the Trax that engine is connected to a six-speed automatic transmission. It could also use the Equinox’s 1.5-liter turbo-four making 170 hp and 203 lb-ft. If we’re really lucky, it’ll get the 252-hp, 260-lb-ft 2.0-liter turbo I4.

It looks like a light off-roader, meaning it will probably offer some form of all-wheel drive. I’ll go out on a limb and say don’t expect a transfer case or crawl ratio. It does have a decent ride height, though, so expect clouds of dirt in ad campaigns.

It’ll be in dealerships next year as a 2021 model year.
