For 2021, everything is brand new. The previous Trailblazer was a large SUV that was used on a truck frame. It definitely served its purpose, but for 2021, Chevy wanted something fresh and modern. It decided to go with a completely different frame. The new Trailblazer is designed for people who don't necessarily need bulk but still want something versatile and practical. Since the compact and subcompact SUV classes have really grown in recent years, the Trailblazer is sure to attract a lot of attention in the Burlington, IA area.

Available Trims

There are five trims available to Fort Madison area shoppers. The L is the base model, and it's only available with front-wheel drive. All of the other trims, which are the LS, LT, Activ, and RS, give you the option of getting front-wheel or all-wheel drive.

The L does have several advanced safety features, and it's capable of acting as a Wi-Fi hotspot. In the LS, some notable upgrades are a better sound system, carpeted floor mats, and 17-inch wheels. The LT trim is where many other amenities become standard; this trim has LED fog lights, tinted glass, and a power-operated driver's seat. The Activ and RS trims are both enhanced with a more powerful engine. Plus, they have some stylistic details that can add up to make them feel more upscale.


Even though the new Trailblazer is on the smaller side, legroom hasn't been compromised at all. In the front seat, people will have plenty of room to get comfortable, and rear-seat passengers will as well. There's almost 40 inches of legroom in the back seat, and this may be more than you find in some competitors. Behind the seating, you'll find a cargo area with a volume of over 25 cubic feet. The rear seats can be folded down to expand capacity to nearly 55 cubic feet.

As a new model, the Trailblazer has many high-tech components built into it. Every trim comes standard with a seven-inch touchscreen, and some trims come with the option of getting an eight-inch touchscreen. Bluetooth® and smartphone compatibility are integrated into the vehicle's infotainment system, and wireless charging is available if you prefer having the more convenient way of maintaining your phone's battery life.

The Trailblazer has some nicer amenities that consumers will appreciate. Passengers in the front could enjoy having heated seats, and leather is an option if you prefer to have a more sophisticated cabin. Some trims come standard with a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear shifter, and depending on the exact model you choose, you may be able to get a panoramic sunroof.


Riding on 16-, 17-, or 18-in wheels, the Trailblazer feels sporty. It sits almost eight inches off the ground, so it still has the height that many consumers are interested in. If you prefer a bold appearance, consider getting the blackout package. If you like things more refined, perhaps choose a trim with chrome exterior accents. Many Trailblazers feature LEDs in their fog lamps, headlights, and taillights. In the back of the vehicle, there could be a power-operated tailgate with a hands-free function for convenience. In fact, these advanced tailgates can be opened up in four different ways.


The Trailblazer has two available engines. Lower trims run on 1.2-liter turbo engines and have continuously variable transmissions. The higher trims are powered by 1.3-liter turbo engines and use nine-speed automatic transmissions. The difference is that the 1.2-liter engine has 137 horsepower and over 160 pound-feet of torque while the larger engine takes things up a notch to 155 horsepower and nearly 175 pound-feet of torque.
