Chevrolet has given the Trailblazer crossover a refresh, inside and out
It was in 2021 when Chevrolet distributor The Covenant Car Company Inc (TCCCI) revealed the all-new Trailblazer. No longer a midsize SUV, the Trailblazer is now a compact crossover that competes with the likes of the Mazda CX-5, Subaru Forester, and MG HS.
With a Camaro-inspired exterior design and an interior that combines sport and luxury into one, the Trailblazer looks sleek without being too overly aggressive. But since the vehicle itself was first launched back in late 2019, the Trailblazer is due for a refresh.
This is the 2024 Chevrolet Trailblazer, and boy does it get more than just a facelift. Featuring a sharper front end, and a more high-tech cabin, the bow-tie brand wants to keep its compact crossover look fresh and up-to-date against the competition.
Beginning with the most obvious first, the front fascia of the 2024 Trailblazer features a new set of narrow LED daytime running lights, as well as a restyled dual-port grille with a more prominent crossbar centerpiece. It also gets new LED headlights and an updated front bumper design.
Changes to the rear appear to be minimal as it appears relatively the same as before. However, we noticed that the 2024 Trailblazer now comes with a slightly altered rear bumper. The faux diffuser now features chrome accents along with what looks like faux exhaust finishers that give it a sportier look.
Moving to the interior, the 2024 Trailblazer gets a bigger touchscreen infotainment. Whereas the current model only gets an 8-inch display, the refreshed crossover sports a bigger 11-inch monitor that supports wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Due to the bigger touchscreen, Chevrolet had to replace the center aircon vents from the top of the screen to below it.
Also worth mentioning is a new 8-inch digital instrument panel that replaces dual-pod gauges from before. Not only does this make for a much better view of the instrument cluster, but it also makes for a bigger display for the multi-info screen.
Under the hood, the Trailblazer continues to be available with two turbocharged engines; a 1.2-liter three-cylinder and a 1.3-liter inline-three. The former makes 139 PS while the latter generates 156 PS. Available transmissions include a CVT (FWD) and a 9-speed automatic that's exclusive only to the AWD version.
With the 2024 Chevrolet Trailblazer already available in the US, we can expect it to arrive in other markets soon.
