2021 and 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer Comparison

2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer RS

2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer vs. 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer

After its initial 12 year absence from the Chevy lineup, the Trailblazer made its triumphant return through its redesign as an economical small SUV that maintains an adventurous spirit. For the 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer, the company has kept changes relatively minor from its relaunch 2021 version. Different trim levels have been given new standard or optional features to bolster their modern identity. Additionally, several new colors are available to give the compact SUV more personalization options.

Engine Differences

The base turbocharged 1.2L ECOTEC engine that was installed in the 2021 version of the Trailblazer finds its way back into the 2022 version of the compact SUV. This and the upgraded 1.3L version of the engine give the Trailblazer its reliable performance that is perfectly suited for everyday Denver Metro driving needs. With 137 horsepower from the 1.2L engine and 155 horsepower from the 1.3L version, there is plenty of power to handle daily needs with ease. The standard Continuously Variable Transmission makes its return as well on base 1.2L engine models and non-AWD 1.3L engine models of the 2022 Trailblazer. Trailblazer trims equipped with the 1.2L engine are solely FWD, while AWD is available on select trims that are fitted with the 1.3L engine. AWD models also get a nine-speed automatic transmission equipped instead of the CVT.

Exterior & Interior Differences

When choosing what color to make a new 2022 Trailblazer, customers can select from four additional metallic options. These range from Blue Glow to Mahogany Red to add appreciated personalized touches to the compact SUV. A new trailering package that includes a bezel, hitch, and harness is available as an option through the dealer. For the inside of the compact SUV, the second-tier LT trim level can now have a heated steering wheel equipped. Meanwhile, both the ACTIV and RS trim levels of the 2022 Trailblazer get this feature as a standard inclusion.

Driver-Assistance Technology Differences

Chevrolet has kept the range of standard and available driver-assistance features the same from the 2021 model year of the Trailblazer to the 2022 version of the compact SUV. This means drivers get to take advantage of standard Automatic Emergency Braking that uses Pedestrian Detection to improve the monitoring capability of the system. Both Lane Departure Warning and Lane Keep Assist work together to keep the SUV in its place on the road and prevent unintentional veering. Select trims remain able to have convenient Adaptive Cruise Control installed to remove the tedious elements of highway driving.
