A couple of weeks ago, General Motors confirmed the 2020 Chevrolet Trailblazer model. GM also said that the Trailblazer will be one of the two possible replacements for the Chevrolet Trax model. Logically, Trailblazer will borrow plenty of cues from the new Chevy Blazer SUV. Some people are already calling it a “mini Blazer”.
Company’s new crossover will get plenty of character and it will look unique. Bolder bumpers, new grille, sharper body lines, and expressive styling are just some of the highlights. Interior will be modern and very comfortable. Under the hood, not all of the details are certain. However, the 2020 Trailblazer could borrow an engine or two from the Equinox model.
Exterior Borrows Plenty of Blazer’s Cues
In GM’s presser, we could read about the new crossover with plenty of character on its own. The 2020 Chevrolet Trailblazer will look impressive and attractive. Bolder look and more expressive design are making this crossover SUV very handsome and modern. Bolder bumpers, sharper body lines and smooth flat-roof design are just some of the highlights. Overall, this model looks cleaner than most of the other company’s vehicles. The front end features a long hood and LED daytime running lights.
Chevrolet’s recognizable accent lighting strip is also available. A dual-port grille is all-new. Chevrolet will also deliver plenty of red features and accents. That includes tow hooks, stripe and much more. 17-inch black wheels are offered as standard. However, Trailblazer still hides some mysteries. For example, details about the rear part are still not available. Trailblazer will ride on a new GM VSS-F platform, just like the Chevy Trax.
2020 Trailblazer Comes With a Five-Star Safety Rating
When it comes to interior design, Chevrolet still has to release full details. However, the 2020 Chevrolet Trailblazer will surely get plenty of safety features. That also includes numerous driver-assistance systems as well. New Trailblazer should arrive with a five-star safety rating. Whatsoever, it will be probably the safest vehicle in the segment. Lane departure warning, auto emergency braking, and lane-keep assist are all offered as standard.
Parking assist, blind-spot monitoring, and some other systems will be optional. According to the latest rumors, the 2020 Trailblazer will get two interior configurations. The first configuration is a two-row variant with a room for five. The second configuration includes an optional third-row and a room for seven passengers. Trailblazer will deliver ample legroom in the first two rows. Of course, there will be plenty of modern amenities and numerous trim levels.
Possible Engine Lineup
Another huge mystery will be this crossover’s engine options. The all-new 2020 Chevrolet Trailblazer will surely deliver at least two powertrain choices. A 1.5-liter four-cylinder is the most likely candidate. This engine offers a turbocharger and it powers the new Chevy Equinox model. A 2.0-liter turbo-four unit will be the optional engine.
Another outcome is a 1.4-liter turbo-four from the Chevy Trax model. No matter what happens, Chevrolet will surely deliver a new 9-speed automatic transmission. Thanks to the new platform, we know the Trailblazer will be a front-wheel-drive vehicle. An all-wheel-drive system is also in the offer and it is optional.
2020 Chevrolet Trailblazer Price and Release Date
Price is another big question for the upcoming crossover. The 2020 Chevrolet Trailblazer will cost between $35,000 and $40,000. This is still a speculation, so the real pricing details are not available yet.
Chevy could also introduce a sporty RS trim level. Trailblazer will go on sale globally by the end of 2019. This crossover SUV will be sold in the U.S. under the “Colorado 7” name.
