Vehicle Profile: 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer
The 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer stands out with handsome styling, advanced technologies, and rugged-yet-efficient capabilities. This small, tough model is versatile enough to serve as a city-friendly commuter vehicle, a comfortable hauler for a young family, or an adventure SUV that’s right at home in the mud and dirt.
Performance and efficiency
The 2022 Trailblazer boasts performance that’s both capable and efficient. LS and LT trims come equipped with a 1.2-liter turbo engine that generates 137 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque. Paired with a continuously variable transmission, this engine achieves up to 29 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.* RS and ACTIV trims receive a 1.3-liter turbo engine that boosts output to 155 horsepower and 174 lb-ft of torque. It’s mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission and yields up to 29 mpg in the city and 33 on the highway.*
All four Trailblazer trims offer a choice between FWD and AWD. Whichever you opt for, you can count on responsive and agile handling. Both transmissions feature driver shift control to give you a more engaged experience behind the wheel. Three selectable drive modes are available: Normal and Sport, plus AWD or a Snow setting for FWD. With the ACTIV trim, you’ll also get a suspension specially tuned for off-road handling.
Stylish substance characterizes the exterior design of the 2022 Trailblazer. Black lower fascias, Anthracite lower bodyside moldings, dual exhaust outlets, and 17-inch aluminum wheels are among the standard features that contribute to this SUV’s sturdy look.
To grab attention wherever you go, opt for an RS or ACTIV trim. The sporty RS gives you 18-inch High Gloss Black machined aluminum wheels and black Chevy bowtie emblems. The off-road-ready ACTIV sports 17-inch High Gloss Black wheels, sport terrain tires, and a front skid plate. For an especially stylish statement, you can give your RS or ACTIV a two-tone paint job with combinations like Crimson Metallic and Mosaic Black or Blue Glow Metallic and Summit White.
Expect plenty of comfort and versatility inside the five-seat 2022 Trailblazer. With the split-folding second row and two-level load floor, you can fit up to 54.4 cubic feet of cargo. A flat-folding front passenger seat lets you carry items up to 8.5 feet long. The second row is hospitable to kids and adults alike with nearly 40 inches of legroom. Seats can be upholstered in cloth, available leatherette, or a combination of the two.
On RS and ACTIV trims, you’ll find a wealth of amenities to make your travels more enjoyable. Both models come with a heated and leather-wrapped steering wheel, a leather-covered shift knob, heated front seats, and a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s chair. Optional upgrades inside the Trailblazer include a panoramic power sunroof, all-weather floor liners and mats, and automatic climate control.
Safety and infotainment tech
The 2022 Trailblazer comes fully equipped with an array of standard technologies. The Chevrolet Infotainment System gives you a 7-inch touch screen, wireless Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay®, smartphone voice command, and Bluetooth®. Or upgrade to an 8-inch screen with built-in navigation, cloud-connected personalized settings, and Amazon Alexa Built-In.
Every Trailblazer trim also gets the standard Chevy Safety Assist package of driver-assist features. These include Automatic Emergency Braking and Front Pedestrian Braking, Forward Collision Alert, and Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning. For extra protection, you can choose available systems like Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, and Rear Park Assist.
With its combination of toughness, utility, style, and tech, the 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer delivers loads of value — and it’s ideally suited to support busy, active lifestyles of all kinds.
