With more and more people buying cars, then for the car information you certainly also need to know more, then I will bring you some of the latest car information today, I hope you will like. Chevrolet’s latest crossover, the 2022 Trailblazer, will go on sale this spring as a new competitor to other popular small crossovers such as the Honda HR-V and Toyota C-HR. With only three-cylinder engines on offer in the 2022 Chervolet Trailblazer, we now know how fuel-efficient it is.
The optional 1.3-litre three-cylinder engine is rated at 26 mpg city, 30 mpg highway and 28 mpg. The 1.3-litre engine produces 155 hp and transfers its power to all four wheels. These specifications are slightly lower than the Pathfinder’s main rival, the Honda HR-V, which is rated at 27 mpg city and 31 and 29 mpg highway. We don’t yet know how fuel-efficient the smaller 1.2-litre engine is, but we do know it produces 137 hp. 2021 Chevy Trailblazer starts at $19,995 and will be offered in five trim levels: L, LS, LT, Activ and RS.
Whereas the Trailblazer trim level was previously used on mid-size SUVs, and in North America, the Trailblazer SUV was only available from 2001 to 2008, after which it was discontinued (production continued in other countries), for 2020 Chevrolet is using the Trailblazer on the new compact Crossover. This is not the first time that the old name has been used for a different model range, the last being the Chevrolet Equinox. The new Chevrolet Trailblazer 2022 is small, measuring 173.7″ in length, 71.2″ in width and 65.7″ in height. It is built on a GM VSS-F chassis and has a ground clearance of 8 inches.
The test car is the Trailblazer RS model, with a two-tone black-on-black and white-on-white body and a roof rack. The headlamps are located under the daytime running lights (DRLs) and the near-square headlamps resemble fog lamps, while the real fog lamps are hidden underneath the bumper, and the RS is fitted with four sporty silver and black alloy wheels with 225/55R18 tyres. There are two types of engine, a 1.2-litre inline three-cylinder engine with 137 hp and 162 lb ft of torque, used only in the LS and LT front-wheel-drive versions, and a 1.3-litre inline three-cylinder engine with 155 hp and 174 lb ft of torque, used in the other models, especially the AWD model. The 1.2-litre engine will be equipped with a CVT gearbox, while the 1.3-litre engine will be equipped with a 9-speed automatic gearbox.
The interior of the Trailblazer is equipped with a three-spoke steering wheel with a variety of buttons, including audio operation and cruise control, as well as four-way buttons to control the information displays on the instrument panel. The centre console comes with a 7″ touchscreen as standard, but can be upgraded to 8″ with a built-in 4G/LTE hotspot, support for Apple Carplay and Android Auto, and wireless connectivity, plus Amazon Alexa. A wireless charging pad is located at the bottom of the centre console and behind the charging pad there are several buttons, one of which switches off the Trailblazer’s standard automatic engine shutdown function and another, with a checkered flag, is actually Sport mode.
To give this little car an edge when it comes to transport, the front passenger seat of the Trailblazer folds completely flat and can carry up to 8.5 feet. The rear can be divided into 40/60 folds, with a maximum cargo capacity of 54.4 cubic feet. The most surprising thing about the Trailblazer is that although it has only a small engine, the acceleration is by no means insignificant and is extremely responsive, reaching maximum torque at 1,600 rpm.
