I know it was announced at the end of May, but I still felt it was necessary to share what we know so far about the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer coming to the States. What I find the most interesting is that the Trailblazer not going to replace the Trax when its released and it's not going to be like the international version.

In that regard, the new Trailblazer will be somewhat of a “subcompact plus” offering.
The design looks like a shrunken 2019 Chevrolet Blazer, which is something we have reflected on when seeing this vehicle undergoing testing. And that theme is very much on purpose. After all, GM had previously stated that the design language of the new Blazer will inspire the styling of all future Chevrolet crossovers.
“The Trailblazer’s great design enables more personalization,” said Steve Majoros, director of Chevrolet passenger car and crossover marketing. “Trailblazer is a continuation of the design language for Chevy’s crossover family and extends our momentum into one of the industry’s fastest-growing segments.”
When it launches in early 2020, the Chevrolet Trailblazer will offer an RS trim level, which features a standard two-tone roof that allows customers to purchase a vehicle that reflects their lifestyle.
The crossover’s unique individuality will be paired with various standard GM active safety features, including Front Pedestrian Braking, Automatic Emergency Braking, as well as Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning. It also offers optional Adaptive Cruise Control, Rear Park Assist and a High Definition Rear Vision Camera that provides additional assistance to customers while parking.
“These features deliver added confidence and peace of mind behind the wheel, helping drivers monitor the vehicle’s surroundings and the driving environment with an available combination of camera, short-range radars and ultrasonic sensors,” Majoros added.
The introduction of the new Chevrolet Trailblazer gives Chevy one of the broadest lineups of crossovers and SUVs, expanding the brand’s U.S. crossover offerings from four to five models.
