The 2024 Chevrolet Trailblazer debuts with a refreshed front end and an expanded suite of standard technology. Pricing for the upgraded model is not yet available. Buyers can choose between LS, LT, Activ and RS models.
The Trailblazer’s revised nose features narrower, sharper lights in the upper section of the grille. The lower lamps are now oval in shape. A trapezoidal opening in the lower fascia is at the bottom of the front. New color options are Copper Harbor Metallic and Cacti Green.
To differentiate the various trims, the Trailblazer RS gets black exterior trim, a trapezoidal mesh pattern on the grille, 19-inch wheels, and a pair of chrome-finished exhaust tips. The Activ is a beefier version with revised shocks and dampers for better off-road performance.
Inside, the 2024 Trailblazer now comes with an 11-inch diagonal infotainment screen that replaces the previous standard 7.0-inch screen or optional 8.0-inch monitor. The system is compatible with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Additionally, there is now an 8.0-inch driver’s display in the instrument cluster that replaces the existing 4.2-inch unit.
Standard equipment includes push-button start, cruise control and a high-definition rearview camera. A wireless phone charger is an option on LT, Activ and RS trims.
The front passenger seat folds down to accommodate items up to 8.5 feet (2.59 meters) long when the rear seatback is folded down. There is up to 54.4 cubic feet (1,540 liters) of cargo volume.
The Trailblazer’s powertrains are unchanged. The standard engine is a 1.2-liter turbocharged three-cylinder that makes 137 horsepower (102 kilowatts) and 162 pound-feet (220 Newton-meters) of torque. It connects to a CVT that drives the front wheels.
There’s also a 1.3-liter turbocharged three-cylinder making 155 hp (116 kW) and 174 lb-ft (236 Nm). With front-wheel drive, the engine is paired with a CVT. If a buyer selects the available all-wheel drive system, the vehicle gets a nine-speed automatic transmission.
