Remember the Chevrolet Trailblazer — a truck-based mid-size SUV discontinued in the U.S. after the 2009 model-year? Well it’s back for the 2021 model year — and unrecognizable. The new, smaller car-based SUV will live in the tiny space between the Chevrolet Trax and Equinox in the automaker’s lineup. We checked out the new Trailblazer at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show, where it made its debut.

Outside, the new Trailblazer borrows some style cues from the Camaro-influenced mid-size Blazer SUV, such as the two-level grille and front end. Chevrolet also describes its rear end as “sports-car-inspired.” Like the Blazer, it seems designed more for sportiness than SUV-ness.
Inside, the Trailblazer has a dual-cockpit-style dashboard, as in the Blazer, and its center console is configurable for different storage needs. The Trailblazer’s multimedia touchscreen is powered by Chevy’s latest system, and smartphone integration and satellite radio capability are standard.
Watch the video for more, and stay tuned for more videos from the show, which opens its doors to the public today through Dec. 1.
