2022 Chevrolet TrailBlazer - Now for Pre-Order in Ottawa
The subcompact SUV market is a hugely competitive one, but the Trailblazer offers something a little different to the norm. Taking all the ruggedness of the SUV format but matching it to city-friendly size and economy, this model from Chevrolet makes a great choice for everyday urban driving. We now have the latest 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer available at our Ottawa dealership, and here are the highlights you can expect to enjoy from a test drive.
Exterior and Styling
The Trailblazer's exterior blends genuine SUV ruggedness with the smaller dimensions of a nimble city car, resulting in an attractively compact outline with plenty of character. Where other subcompacts move toward the hatchback style, the Trailblazer stays true to the SUV qualities of a high ride and a confident presence on the road.
Under the Hood
The urban appeal of the Trailblazer is immediately obvious from a look at the engineering under the hood. Two powertrains are on offer, with the first built around a 1.2L turbo engine putting out 137 horsepower, passed to front-wheel drive via a continuously variable transmission (CVT).
Moving to the 1.3L turbo option pushes the output up to 155 horsepower, this time feeding optional all-wheel drive through a nine-speed automatic transmission. This choice adds a little extra edge to the drive, giving punchier performance without hugely increasing fuel consumption.
With its aim squarely focused on the urban driving market, the Trailblazer boasts some impressive fuel economy figures. The base-level front-wheel drive model offers an enticing 8.1L / 100km in the city and 7.1L / 100km on the highway, making it one of the leanest SUVs available today. Moving to the beefier engine with all-wheel drive raises consumption a little, but at just 9.0L in the city and 7.8L on the highway, the 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer is still an amazingly economical vehicle at the gas pump.
The 2022 Trailblazer's surprisingly spacious interior is equipped with plenty of advanced infotainment technology, accessed through a touchscreen display of either 7" or 8" in size. Every model in the lineup offers SiriusXM satellite radio, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and connection of up to two Bluetooth devices simultaneously, while higher trims add wireless connections and a premium seven-speaker Bose audio system. And lastly, active noise cancellation technology is available on the all-wheel drive models for quieter, more relaxing journeys.
Driver Assistance and Active Safety Systems
The impressive level of technology continues into the active safety and driver assist offerings, with a generous amount of features available as standard or as upgrades. The main highlights include:
- Forward collision warnings with pedestrian detection and automated emergency braking.
- Lane departure warnings.
- Lane keep assist.
- Blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alerts.
- Adaptive cruise control.
- Rear parking sensors.
- Automatic high beams.
