2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer review pricing specs

She’s back!! The Chevy Trailblazer

The Trailblazer took a little hiatus from 2006 to recreate herself. Recreate she did, and the best part of her return is they forgot to tell her that the median price of a vehicle was hitting $35,000.

  • The Trailblazer comes in RS and ACTIV trims for distinct personality and styling; it’s also available in LS and LT trims
  • ACTIV comes with exclusive features to enhance vehicle performance and ride comfort on gravel terrain, including:
  • Uniquely tuned dampers
  • Sport Terrain 17-inch tires with all-season design
  • Improved ground clearance and underbody shielding

The interior is spacious and includes 40/60 rear seats that fold down to allow for 54.4 cubic feet of cargo volume

  • The available fold-flat front passenger seat offers room for objects up to 8.5 feet long
  • Best-in-class rear-seat legroom
