The word ‘Trailblazer' itself means ‘an innovator’ and the car has always brought up something new and interesting for its customers with every new model. For 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer is going to be even more spacious and is coming with a host of interesting interior updates. On the outside, the 2022 version of the midsize SUV is going to be more charming than its previous generations.

As for the powertrain, the 2022 Trailblazer is expected to arrive with either a 1.2-liter or 1.3-liter turbo engine, delivering slightly more power than 155 hp which is offered in the 2021 Trailblazer. Both engines will be mated to a continuously variable transmission with stop-start, though a nine-speed automatic transmission, as usual, will be available on Trailblazers equipped with the 1.3-liter engine and all-wheel-drive.

The all-new 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer will be offered in FWD and AWD drivetrain and is expected to come in five different trim levels- L, LS, LT ACTIV, and RS. All of the trim levels will come standard with 1.2-L Turbocharged Inline-4 cylinders and the other powerful version will be the 1.3-L Inline-4 cylinder engine.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide


The all-new 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer expands Chevrolet’s SUV lineup in the small SUV segment. The upcoming Trailblazer is expected to get a bump up in terms of performance with a more powerful engine. As for the features list the trim levels are expected to be optimized with more standard features in the base trim. As for the exterior other than a few new color options, the overall appearance will remain the same and all this is expected to be had in the Trailblazer with a starting price of under $20,000.

2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer Pricing and Features

Being mostly a carryover model we expect the trims and features to be similar to what was offered in the 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer. The expected line-up of the all-new 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer will comprise 5 trims: L, LS, LT, Activ, and RS. Pricing of the 2022 Chevy Trailblazer is one of the biggest reasons that Chevy's subcompact crossover has become a hot topic in the town. For a rumored base MSRP of under $20,000, the 2022 Chevy Trailblazer is expected to include an abundance of features that will expand as you move up the trim table.

2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer Engine and Performance

The 2021 Trailblazer gets two powertrains. A 1.2-liter three-cylinder turbo engine good enough for 137 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque and is mated to a CVT transmission and sends all the power to the front wheels. A turbocharged 1.3-liter three-cylinder engine is also available. It puts a healthy 155 hp and 174 lb-ft of torque. The 1.3L engine is mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission and is available with both front- and all-wheel drive. We expect these powertrains to go unchanged but with a slight bump in power and torque figures for the 2022 model year.

*2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer figures

The standard engine of the all-new Trailblazer will remain the same. The Mazda CX-30 with quite a large 2.5L engine puts out the highest numbers in the segment followed by the Hyundai Kona. The power figure of the Kia Seltos is higher than the Trailblazer but falls short when it comes to torque. As for the 0-60 and quarter-mile run, the bigger displacement engine of the Mazda helps it to rocket from 0-60 in under 8 seconds and quarter-mile in 16 seconds flat. While the Kia Seltos is the slowest in both the runs.

2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer Fuel Economy

As the engine of the line-up is expected to remain the same we expect no change in the MPG figures of the upcoming version of the Trailblazer. As per 2021 data, the 1.2-L Turbocharged Inline-4 cylinders engine returns 29 MPG in the city, 31 MPG on the highway, and 28 MPG as combined with a fuel tank capacity of 13.2 gallons. The EPA figures of the Chevrolet Trailblazer are very competitive and we are sure that no other rivals can offer as best as these figures. We sure won’t be able to evaluate the final 2022 MPG figure until the model is in the market, but the Trax is the closest indication.

*2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer figures

It is no doubt that the 1.2-L Turbocharged inherited Trailblazer offers the best MPG figures in the segment. Its MPG figures are way ahead of its competitors. The closest to these figures is Hyundai Kona with the same fuel tank capacity. The Mazda CX-30 thanks to the bigger displacement engine offers the lowest MPG figures.

2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer Interior

The interior of the 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer will get some minor upgrades. Inside there is plenty of room for five adult passengers one will surely not feel cramped seating at the second-row of the model. Cloth seats are standard in the base trim whereas the upper trim gets leather and premium synthetic seats. The rear seats of the model do fold into a 60/40 split which further increases the standard cargo capacity of the model. As for the boot space on offer going by the figures of the 2021 model the 2022 model is also expected to be greater than Chevrolet Trax. 

On top of the Trailblazer’s 7-inch touchscreen, the current subcompact SUV comes with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth, two USB ports, and four audio speakers as standard. You can also upgrade with an 8-inch touchscreen, wireless smartphone charging, and a seven-speaker audio system. Tech features for the 2022 Trailblazer are to remain the same for the 2022 Trailblazer.

The current Chevrolet Trailblazer is the most spacious and that will continue for the 2022 model year too. Additionally, the trunk capacity of the model is very good just below the segment leader Kia Seltos’ 26.6 cubic feet. Kia Seltos also offers good interior passenger space whereas the other two models offer average interior passenger space and trunk capacity.

2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer Exterior

The 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer will be slightly larger as its interior space will be increased. Overall, the exterior has been given a very handsome and attractive look. The 16-inch alloy wheels will be available standard also you will have the option to upgrade it to 17-inch alloy wheels. Other than that, we are expecting the same hexagon front grille design, all-LED bright lights, all-weather sports tires, powered mirror(s), and a few minor updates.

If the rumors are to be true then you can expect the 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer to be a bit heavier than the 2021 model. Yes, owing to the increase in space the model is expected to be having bigger dimensions. Coming to the rivals, the Hyundai Kona has the shortest dimensions of all. The Mazda CX-30 is the second-heaviest in the segment with similar dimensions as the Chevrolet Trailblazer but has the highest ground clearance among all. As for the wheelbase, the Mazda CX-30 again wins with its longest 104.5 inches wheelbase.

2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer Safety

The 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer has not been crash-tested by IIHS yet. However, NHTSA has put this new Chevy through some rigorous tests and the 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer secured a 4 Star Overall Safety Rating from NHTSA. According to NHTSA, the Trailblazer failed to impress in the agency's front passenger-side crash test and hence received a mediocre 3-star rating, which is the lowest of all the subcompact crossover SUVs.

Speaking of safety features onboard, a plethora of advanced safety systems and driver aids are offered in the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer. Some of the safety and driver-assistance features on offer with the 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer are automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assist, lane-departure warning, adaptive cruise control, four-wheel ABS brakes, 10 airbags, and many more too. We expect these safety features and ratings to remain the same for the 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer.

2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer Competition

2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer Vs 2021 Hyundai Kona

The lightest crossover in the segment is the 2021 Hyundai Kona which has decent performance stats and a modern design. With a bigger 2L naturally aspirated motor under the hood of the 2021 Kona, it manages to deliver a marginally better 0-60 MPH time and quarter-mile times in comparison to the 2021 Trailblazer and for the 2022 Trailblazer, the gap will be covered. However, the 2022 Trailblazer will be more spacious on the inside and thus will offer more cargo capacity as well. It also gets a more feature-rich infotainment system even for the base trims. With a base MSRP of under $20,000, the 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer will undercut the 2021 Kona.

2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer Vs 2021 Mazda CX-30

Performance-wise, the 2021 Mazda CX-30 delivers more power and is the best-in-segment in terms of 0-60 MPH and quarter-mile times. It houses a massive 2.5 Liter Inline-4 engine against the puny 1.2 Liter Turbo three-cylinder powerhouse expected in the 2022 Trailblazer. However, the exterior look of the 2022 Trailblazer will be more compelling with loads of sporty accents and modern features. The interior space is quite similar for both cars. Nevertheless, the 2022 Trailblazer will have a slight edge out here too. The genteel material selection, plush seating, and tech-savvy cabin will be the USPs of the 2022 Trailblazer. With a base MSRP of $22,050, the 2021 CX-30 is also more expensive than the 2022 Trailblazer and will be a deciding factor for many buyers.

2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer Vs 2021 Kia Seltos

Coming in at a base MSRP of $21,990, the 2021 Kia Seltos comes with a 2L naturally aspirated inline-4 motor, putting out the lowest torque on offer in the subcompact crossover segment, making it the worst performer of the segment in terms of the 0-60 MPH and quarter-mile numbers. The gas mileage is also not as impressive as the 2022 Trailblazer. However, the 2021 Seltos offers more safety and interior features as standard. With a close to $3,000 price difference between the 2022 Trailblazer, we feel that the 2022 Chevy Trailblazer is more value for money offering as an overall package.

2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer Final Verdict

Chevrolet has yet to release the detailed price tag of each of its trim levels whereas sources claim that the base price will be starting less than $20,000. Chevrolet is yet to announce the official release date of the iconic 2022 Trailblazer but it has an expected on-sale date of spring 2022. The 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer will reach dealerships at the end of this year. 

The 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer has a lot of things going for it. This subcompact crossover SUV will offer a plush and spacious interior with excellent cargo capacity, many interior features, and an impressive infotainment system. The gas mileage will be the best in the segment too. If you could live with the mediocre acceleration from the turbocharged motor then it is quite an impressive proposition in the subcompact SUV segment and hence should be on the shortlist when it launches in the spring of 2022.

Pros - "Reliable Long-Lasting Affordable"

Cons - "Fabric Seats No Arm rests for the middle row Weak Speakers"

I believe this was a good purchase and this is a dependable family car. If you are looking for a family car that last through the years this is your best bet. We are a family of six and this car fits us perfectly. It drives well and has been driving well for 10 years now Auto Traction makes it easier during rough weather There is a lot of space within the car given the fact that it can accomodate 8 people easily. The design is normal, nothing special. I wish that the doors were automatic though. The plastic is sturdy and during an accident the car held up and kept everyone safe. This car is my savior it has been through a lot and still keeps on running. Although some maintance is required it is not extreme just the basics like oil change and reallignment We paid it off in five years Positive and helped us through financing and getting us a good deal
