With all the craziness going on in the world with this COVID-19 pandemic, finding some good news is like finding a gem in all the muck. Automakers are already looking forward to 2021 along with the rest of us who are already tired of 2020, and with the new year will come new models. One brand we never give enough love is Chevrolet, having recently released the EPA rating for the upcoming 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer, available with two powertrain and drivetrain options. On the small side of SUVs, it’s perfect for consumers not looking for something too bulky but could use the extra space.
Fuel economy used to be troublesome for SUVs. Known as “gas guzzlers”, no SUV was safe from EPA ratings and low fuel efficiency scores. Over time, technology and engineering changes. Back when the first automatic transmission came out, it did more harm than good. Now, most vehicles come standard with automatic transmission. So of course, a vehicle with poor fuel economy would eventually get better, right?
The 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer SUV can come equipped with either a 1.2-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine, able to generate 137 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque, or a 1.3-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine, able to generate 155 horsepower and 174 lb-ft of torque. With two drivetrain options, front-wheel drive (FWD) and all-wheel drive (AWD), consumers have options, and each configuration will affect fuel economy. If looking to keep things conservative with a 1.2-liter turbo engine, 2021 Trailblazer delivers 26 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. It may not sound very competitive, but things get hotter with the high-spec options.
Put the 1.3-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine under the hood, attach it to the nine-speed automatic transmission, and opt-in for all-wheel drive, and the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer can trade blows with the competition. A combined EPA rating of 28 mpg is the official number, more than similar vehicles by Honda, Mazda, and Ford. Ready for more good news?
Chevrolet couldn’t wait to let the 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer loose. This SUV is actually available right now, way ahead of 2021, and the starting MSRP is already so low - $19,000 (plus destination fee) – when you shop for a new vehicle online on NowCar, you get an even better price than what it says on the tag. Fuel economy isn’t the only good thing about the new Trailblazer either, there’s plenty to look forward to. We mentioned this is a small SUV for consumers looking for a little more space, and the 2021 Chevy Blazer has a max cargo capacity of 54.4 cubic feet after folding down the 40/60 rear seats. If not loading up, this SUV interior cabin is still roomy for all passengers.
We talked about the different powertrain options, but what about configuring the SUV to the way you like to drive? Depending on the drivetrain chosen, drivers will be able to choose from one of three drive modes: Normal, All-wheel drive, and Sport. If consumers choose FWD, instead of the ability to switch to AWD, this option is replaced with a Snow option.
In addition to all of this, Chevrolet is putting plenty of tech into the new Trailblazer with its latest Chevrolet Infotainment system and convenient features like wireless charging available. Sounds good, right? Shop for a new SUV and buy the new 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer online at NowCar.
