2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Model Preview

Chevrolet introduced the Trailblazer as an all-new model for 2021. The new subcompact crossover gave the automaker a competitive option in the subcompact segment. Entering just its second model year on sale, we expect the 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer to be a carryover model.

When the Chevrolet Trailblazer was introduced for 2021, it arrived with a subcompact footprint, sporty design elements, and rugged styling. The SUV’s front end features a two-tiered grille, slim LED running lights, and high wheel arches. The rear end of the current Trailblazer has a raked windshield that leads to a rugged rear bumper with a lot of body cladding. As a carryover model, the 2022 Trailblazer should retain a lot of the current model’s design.

On the inside, the current Trailblazer manages to be youthfully designed, but intuitively laid out. The flowing lines and sharp air vents have a modern look, while the center console features large dials and easy-to-read buttons. We expect the 2022 Trailblazer’s interior to remain the same.

On top of the Trailblazer’s 7-inch touchscreen, the current subcompact SUV comes with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Wi-Fi hot spot, Bluetooth, two USB ports, and four audio speakers as standard. An 8-inch touchscreen, wireless smartphone charging, and a seven-speaker audio system are optional. Tech features for the 2022 Trailblazer are expected to go unchanged.

Power for the current Trailblazer comes from two engines. A turbocharged 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine is standard and is rated at 137 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque. The engine is paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission and is only available with front-wheel drive. A turbocharged 1.3-liter three-cylinder engine is available. It produces 155 hp and 174 lb-ft of torque. The engine is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission and is available with both front- and all-wheel drive. We expect these powertrains to go unchanged for the 2022 model year.

When it comes to standard safety features, the current Trailblazer comes with lane keeping assist, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, pedestrian detection, forward collision warning, and a teen driver system as standard. Optional features include rear cross traffic alert, blind spot monitoring, and adaptive cruise control. The NHTSA gave the subcompact a five-star overall safety rating. Standard safety features for the 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer will mirror the ones found on the current model.

Pricing & Release Date

Chevrolet hasn’t announced when it will officially release the 2022 Trailblazer. The subcompact SUV has an expected on-sale date of spring 2021.

Pricing is expected to be announced closer to the 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer’s on-sale date. Without any major changes, we anticipate the SUV staying close to the current model’s range of $19,995 to $26,495 (prices include destination).

This subcompact crossover will compete against the Hyundai Venue, Kia Soul, Mazda CX-3, and Honda HR-V.
