Auto123 reviews the 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer.
There is seemingly no stopping the advances of SUVs as they win over the affections of 21st-century consumers. Manufacturers are pulling out all the stops to create utility vehicles of different sizes, shapes and capabilities. From the smallest to the largest, from the most luxurious to the most affordable, from the most urban to the most hardy, automotive giant GM has all the types motorists might want to meet their needs across its various brands.
But as in life, it takes practice to make perfect when it comes to developing the right SUV. The reborn Trailblazer sits at the end of a long road that has had its share of missteps and oddities. Think of the Pontiac Aztek, which many have dubbed one of the uglier SUVs ever produced and which drew a lot of criticism also for its questionable reliability. But that's ancient history! Now, there’s this new subcompact+ whipper-snapper of a 2021 Trailblazer that we had occasion to test-drive recently.
Small without being tiny, the Trailblazer sits between the Trax and the Equinox in the Chevy lineup. And for what it’s worth, it’s also much smaller than - and has nothing to do with - its ancestor that carried the same name.
