2022 chevy trailblazer trim levels

The 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer is a super-compact SUV available in four trim levels or configurations: LS, LT, Activ, and RS. The standard engine is a turbo 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine with front-wheel drive and a CVT automatic transmission. This engine makes 137 horsepower and 162 lb-ft torque. All-wheel drive is available as an option, and it comes with a more powerful turbo 1.3-liter three-cylinder motor that generates155 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque, and it’s mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission.

Interior

The Trailblazer strikes a good balance between analog and digital interfaces, and everything is intuitive to use right away. Because the Trailblazer’s ride height is slightly higher than that of a small car, it’s simple to open the door and step inside. Even the tallest rear passengers will not need to do any gymnastics to get in. When you get there, you’ll notice that the back seat is really roomy. Most passengers will have enough headroom with the optional panoramic sunroof.

Technology

The 2022 Chevy Trailblazer, unlike most other vehicles in the class, does not come with an integrated navigation system. That means you’ll have to rely on the apps on your smartphone. Thankfully, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto both come standard with wireless connectivity, and they work nicely with the Trailblazer’s beautiful touchscreen. A larger 8-inch touchscreen is offered with the optional Technology Package, as well as a pleasant-sounding Bose seven-speaker sound system. Standard is a 7-inch variant. Additionally, front-seat USB-A and USB-C ports are standard, while rear-seat USB-A and USB-C ports are optional.

Storage

The Trailblazer’s greater proportions pay handsomely in the cargo category. Even when compared to the Kia Soul and Subaru Crosstrek, its cargo compartment is one of the roomiest in the class. Obviously, the Trailblazer is still a very tiny SUV, but it should suffice for most cargo-hauling needs. The maximum cargo capacity of the 2022 Chevy Trailblazer is 54.4 cubic feet.

For little goods, interior storage is enough. There’s a tray in front of the shifter, as well as cupholders and a wireless charging pad if you choose that option. A deep but relatively narrow bin underneath the center console armrest is better suited for storing stuff you don’t use often. Smaller things will fit in the door pockets for both front and rear occupants, but bigger water bottles will not fit. Because of the large amount of space in the back seat, car seats should fit without difficulty.

Which 2022 Chevy Trailblazer Should You Buy?

I recommend looking at the LT trim level of the 2022 Chevy Trailblazer when deciding which trim level to go with. It offers a decent combination of features for the price, as well as additional options than the base LS if you desire them. I also advocate buying the 1.3-liter engine instead of the 1.2-liter standard engine, which also implies getting all-wheel drive. I especially enjoy the RS trim level, which comes with the 1.3-liter engine and has the sportiest appearance.
