The 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer is a subcompact crossover SUV that is proud to shun the staid, mundane styling of some of its rivals and instead delivers a more aggressive, sporty, and appealing aesthetic. Every version of the 2022 Trailblazer looks absolutely sensational, but what you might not expect is that it also offers an awful lot of vehicle for your money. That’s especially the case if you place a factory order for a new 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer to get one exactly the way you want it and without paying for features you might not want or need.
If you’re looking to buy a new 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer you’ll find that it follows Chevy’s now-familiar format of offering four different trim levels; one of which is available in front- and all-wheel-drive formats and three other trim levels that come with all-wheel-drive as part of their standard equipment. The entry-level model in the 2022 range is the Trailblazer LS which boasts an extremely attractive starting MSRP but still delivers the goods when it comes to standard features. The next model in the family is the LT, and this is a model that many buyers are likely to see as the sweet spot for all-around value for money, especially with the extra capability of that standard AWD. The next trim level is the Trailblazer ACTIV, and finally, there’s the top-of-the-range version of the Trailblazer which is the sporty and very generously equipped RS.
A lot of rivals in this segment don’t offer buyers a choice of powerplants but the 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer does. The LS and LT front-drive versions of the Trailblazer come standard with a 1.2-litre turbo-three that develops 137 horsepower and 162 lb.-ft. of torque that sends its power to the wheels through a Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT). AWD versions of the Trailblazer come equipped with a more powerful 1.3-litre turbo-three powerplant, and this one provides the Trailblazer with 155 horsepower and 174 lb.-ft. of torque which this time goes to all four wheels through a conventional nine-speed automatic transmission instead.
Trailblazer ACTIV models feature an off-road orientated suspension setup, but the on-road ride of things doesn’t get neglected as the ACTIV is just as comfortable, compliant, and enjoyable to drive as Trailblazer models with the standard suspension setup.
Base LS versions of the 2022 Chevy Trailblazer have starting MSRP that’s every bit as attractive as the compact Chevy SUV itself. Even so, there’s still a pretty impressive list of standard features for that modest asking price that includes the likes of 17-inch black alloy wheels, 10 airbags, heated front seats, climate control, and a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The majority of retail buyers will probably start looking at the LT trim and higher, however, especially with its standard AWD and the ability to tailor your order with available options such as a black contrast roof and adaptive cruise control.
Range-topping RS versions of the 2022 Chevy Trailblazer are especially well-equipped in their standard form and hugely stylish thanks to their 18-inch alloy wheels, deep-tinted glass, Driver Confidence Package, and leatherette/cloth upholstery. But if you opt for a factory order, even the RS can be upgraded further to suit your particular style with options like a larger 8.0-inch touchscreen, adaptive cruise control, Bose premium 7-speaker audio system, an HD rear vision camera, panoramic dual-pane power sunroof, hands-free power programmable liftgate and plenty more besides.
