In the 2022 model year lineup of Chevrolet crossover SUVs, the name Trailblazer adds a bit of excitement, for various reasons. Starting from its attractive and sporty exterior design to its near-luxury cabin, from its nimble handling to its impressive road performance, the 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer has rounded up all of its aspects in a very proportionate manner that helped the crossover stand ahead of many of its closest rivals.

Special Attributes for the Year 2022

The Roxboro area Chevrolet dealership mentioned that for 2022, Chevrolet has presented its Trailblazer model with more or less the same standard features everywhere, but the major change you see is in the lineup structure. Chevrolet has downsized its Trailblazer only into four trim levels, named the LS, LT, ACTIV, and the RS.

The 2022 model year also brought with it four new exterior paint colors and an optional tow package for the trailer. In the list of standard features offered with the 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer series, you will now see a new heated steering wheel for the ACTIV and RS trims.

Powertrain Lineup

The 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer model series has in its lineup a 1.2 L turbo I-3 engine that can generate 137 hp. This engine powers both the LS and the LT trim with an FWD setup. For the higher trims, a 1.3 L turbo I-3 engine shows up that has the capacity to build up 155hp. The second and higher capacitive engine is set as the standard one for the higher trims.

The LS trim of the 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer offers a 6-speaker audio system and installs the Infotainment 3-Plus Infotainment System as standard. Above that, Chevy has also equipped the trailblazer with its own Safety Assist suite that works in tune with the infotainment system for a synchronized operation. The LT models add on these a heated driver seat as well as a heated front passenger seat on the comfort side and include the Cruise Control feature in the safety zone that is added to all the features offered on the LS trim.

Performance Package

The 2022 model year lineup of the Chevrolet Trailblazer presents two engine variants with which you can power your chosen crossover model. However, it is pre-determined by the automaker itself that engine will power which trim level. The two lower trims carry under their hoods a 1.2L Turbo I-3 engine that can make 137 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque when strategically coupled with a CVT with an FWD layout. This combination works for the LS and LT trims. The rest of the lineup sees a 1.3L Turbo I3 engine, which ties know with a 9-speed automatic transmission to raise 155 hp with an AWD configuration.

Apart from that, it is a series of deadly driving dynamics that elevates the handling capacity in the 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer models. A tighter suspension, tuned up to handle off-road bumps is set as the standard to improve handling the undulation. A pair of adaptive dampers also join the crew to manage the wheel alignments, explains the Chevrolet dealership near Roxboro.
