Chevrolet Resurrects Trailblazer Name for 2021 Small SUV

2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer RS

Chevrolet’s latest new small SUV is bringing back the Trailblazer name, but in a very different body. Rather than the mid-size SUV of the past, the new Trailblazer is a small SUV that Chevrolet says will slot in between the Trax and Equinox.

Pricing and specifications are promised “later,” though models are expected in dealerships in early 2020. An RS trim with a two-tone roof will be offered. Most notably, the Trailblazer will have standard active-safety features rather than the current Chevrolet method of making them available only on higher trims.

The list of safety features promised:

  • Automatic emergency braking
  • Lane keep assist
  • Lane departure warning
  • Front pedestrian braking

Optional safety features will include adaptive cruise control, rear park assist and a high-definition rear-vision camera.

It seems possible that the new Trailblazer will share a platform with the just-announced Buick Encore GX, but we’ll have to wait for further details to confirm that — along with things like powertrain, fuel economy, cargo space and pricing.
