Trims and Powertrains

Chevy supplies the Trailblazer in a choice of four trims: LS, LT, ACTIV, and RS. The LS and LT get the base engine, an ECOTEC 1.2-liter turbocharged three-cylinder that puts out 137 horsepower. The ACTIV and RS upgrade to a 155-hp ECOTEC 1.3-liter turbocharged three-cylinder. Front-wheel drive and a continuously variable transmission (CVT) are the default, while all-wheel drive and a nine-speed automatic are optional. With the available trailer hitch, the new Trailblazer can tow up to 1,000 pounds.

The combination of FWD and the 1.2-liter engine yield an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 29 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. While the city rating stays the same with the 1.3-liter powertrain, its highway rating is upgraded to 33 mpg. AWD models return 26 city/30 highway.

Standard Features

The LS hits the basics and then some with cloth seats, a six-way adjustable driver’s seat, a four-way adjustable front passenger’s seat, an 8-inch color driver information display, two USB ports, a 40/60 split-folding rear bench seat, a satin silver and chrome shift knob, LED headlights, black front and rear lower fascia, black power-adjustable outside mirrors, and 17-inch painted aluminum wheels. Remote start and deep-tinted rear glass are available via the optional LS Convenience Package.

The LT moves up to an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with two-way lumbar control, a power liftgate, a rear center armrest, silver-painted front and rear lower fascia, roof-mounted side rails, deep-tinted rear glass, and 17-inch high-gloss black aluminum wheels. There’s an available panoramic power sunroof as well as the LT Convenience Package, which adds automatic climate control, two rear USB ports, a 120-volt power outlet, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and wireless device charging; the LT Cold Weather Package adds a heated steering wheel and heated front seats. The available Blackout Package (LS and LT) changes the exterior look with black front and rear bowtie emblems, a black grille bar, and a black Trailblazer nameplate.

The ACTIV gets some additional amenities: a heated and wrapped steering wheel, a hands-free power liftgate, LED taillights, titanium chrome-plated front and rear lower fascia, front and rear black bowtie emblems, a dual-outlet exhaust, and 17-inch high-gloss black machined aluminum wheels. But its main difference is its added capability and ruggedness, thanks to sport-terrain tires, a specially tuned suspension, upgraded shocks, a functional skid plate, and durable leatherette seats. The RS goes back to the conventional mechanical features but otherwise gets the same list of amenities as the ACTIV, plus an upholstery upgrade to a blend of cloth and leatherette. This topmost trim’s exterior look is dominated by black front and rear lower fascia and 19-inch high-gloss black machined aluminum wheels. A Crimson Metallic roof is offered for RS buyers who want a two-tone color combination.

Advanced Driver Aids

All Trailblazers come with Chevy Safety Assist, a proprietary driver-assist suite made up of automatic emergency braking, automatic high beams, forward collision alert, a following distance indicator, front pedestrian detection, an HD rear-vision camera, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, and GM’s Teen Driver technology. All models are eligible for the optional lane change alert, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and rear park assist. The ACTIV and RS also have eligibility for the optional adaptive cruise control.

Infotainment and Connectivity

As mentioned above, an 11-inch touchscreen infotainment system is standard on the 2024 Trailblazer. Its components are Bluetooth, voice recognition, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a Wi-Fi hotspot. The LS has a four-speaker sound system, while the LT and higher are given six speakers. A Bose sound system upgrade with seven speakers is offered for the ACTIV and RS.
