2023 Chevrolet Trailblazer

The new 2023 Chevrolet Trailblazer will enter the year as a carryover without many changes. Based on recent news, the forthcoming subcompact SUV continues to offer the same attractive Camaro design, and it will be available in four trim levels. As the current model, we can expect the same LS, LT, ACTIV, and RS trim levels. However, unlike the exterior design, the interior of the upcoming SUV will be refreshed, but don’t expect anything significant.

In case you didn’t know, this SUV is available with two engine options. The first one is a 1.2-liter three-cylinder turbocharged engine that makes 137 horsepower and 162 pound-feet, while optional is a 1.3-liter three-cylinder turbocharged engine that produces 155 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque.

2023 Chevrolet Trailblazer Design

The design language of the 2023 Chevrolet Trailblazer is a strong suit. This SUV looks decidedly sportier, and it takes some cues from the Camaro and the bigger Blazer. We like every detail on this model, especially an eye-catchy and unique light signature, followed by angular lines throughout the body.

The look of the Trailblazer can change a bit depending on trim level. For example, the Activ model is more off-road ready thanks to a distinct fascia and a functional skid plate. The RS is the most favorite trim, which makes this SUV even more sporty. The 2-tone roof is available as well and is very popular option.

More Comfy Interior

The 2023 Chevrolet Trailblazer is a very modern SUV, offering a very comfortable interior. This model is available with 2-rows of seats and enough room to place five passengers. Likewise, it offers great headroom and legroom even for the rear passengers. On the technology side, everything depends on chosen trim.

For example, the base model comes with a 7-inch color touchscreen, six-speaker audio system, Bluetooth connectivity, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Wi-Fi hotspot capability, and two USB ports as standard. On upper trims, you will get a more larger 8-inch touchscreen, HD Radio, wireless smartphone charging, and a seven-speaker Bose premium audio system.

2023 Chevrolet Trailblazer Engine Specs

As we said, the new Chevrolet Trailblazer will keep the same two engine options for 2023. So, the base model is still a 1.2-liter three-cylinder turbo with a continuously variable automatic transmission. This engine makes 137 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque, and it comes with front-wheel drive.

A more powerful engine is optional, and it consists of a 1.3-liter three-cylinder turbocharged engine producing 155 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque. Unlike the base one, this engine uses a nine-speed automatic transmission, and is available with both front and all-wheel drive.

2023 Chevrolet Trailblazer Pricing, Release Date, Rivals

Considering the 2023 Chevrolet Trailblazer comes as a carryover model without significant changes, we expect it to keep the same pricing. We anticipate the subcompact SUV to be in the current model’s range of $22,995 to $28,595 including destination.

Chevy hasn’t said anything about a sale of the new Trailblazer. However, many reports indicate that the production will start at the end of this year. Moreover, like before, the Trailblazer will compete with the models such as the Kia Sportage, Mazda CX-70, and Honda CR-V.
