Earlier this year, Chevrolet introduced the all-new Trailblazer in China. Unlike the current Trailblazer offered in South East Asia and Latin America markets, the 2020 Trailblazer has turned into a small crossover. Now, just a few months after its world premiere in China, the new Trailblazer has made its debut in the US and giving us a better look at the crossover.
In the U.S., the new Chevrolet Trailblazer will be positioned in between the Trax and the Equinox in a bid to expand the manufacturer’s crossover lineup. Similar to the model revealed in China, the new Trailblazer features styling cues similar to that of the Camaro and Blazer, especially the RS variant seen here. Up front, there’s a new bolder face with a large grill combined with a two-tier headlight design. The RS version also features a two-tone color scheme with a blackened roof and sportier wheels.
Inside, there is a fairly modern dashboard with a simple design. Front and center is a touchscreen infotainment system. Red accents line the dash in contrast with the black interior.
Aside from the lone exterior and interior photos, little is known about the US-spec Trailblazer at the moment. Interestingly, Chevrolet has not revealed any details about the Trailblazer’s powertrain just yet. If we are to base it off the Equinox, however, expect the Trailblazer to be offered with the same 1.5L turbo inline-4 engine or a 2.0L turbo inline-4 from the larger crossover. Front-wheel drive will likely be standard with all-wheel drive as an option.
Other standard features of the Trailblazer include automated emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, and lane-departure warning, while things like adaptive cruise control and a rearview camera mirror will likely be optional extras.
Now that we’ve gotten a closer look at the 2020 Trailblazer, the question is which one do you prefer more – the crossover or the SUV? If you do prefer this one better, hopefully, Chevrolet decides to bring in this model of the Trailblazer in the future.
