The all-new 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer is joining Chevy’s lineup coming next Spring 2020. Trims include the base LT, an RS performance-inspired version while ACTIV is tuned for off-road use. Chevrolet says the small SUV/crossover will start from under $20,000, excluding destination, but we’ll have to wait for specific pricing info on the various trims and options until closer to launch.

Both engines are mated with a standard Continuously Variable Transmission with selectable stop/start capability.

The Trailblazer features Chevy’s dual-port grille and sports car-inspired rear design. The accent bar is integrated with the headlamps, helping to visually widen its stance, Chevy also says a “simulated” front skidplate “adds a sense of strength.”
