Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

As the entry-level model of the expansive Chevrolet SUV lineup, it’s the most affordable of the bunch - Kelley Blue Book

The 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer will be coming with 4 trims only this time starting with LS at $22,795 that will go up to $28,395 for the ACTIV trim. The 137 hp 1.2 L turbo I-3 has been powered under the hoods of the LS and LT trims for FWD while the 155hp 1.3 L turbo I-3 becomes standard in the rest of the Trailblazer lineup. Also, the 4-new exterior colors along with the newly added trailering package at $650 on offer are other add-ons to be availed of. On top of that, it tops the charts alongside others with its J.D.Power Rating of 83 in its reliability index.

As far as financial dynamics are concerned, the 2022 Trailblazer depreciates by 50% reducing its resale value to $13635 after 5 years. The insurance, meanwhile, charges to be $1,480 per year until $7,400 is not covered. However, the repair cost is $310 yearly on average which is comparable to industry standards. Apart from this, there is a destination fee as well that is rounded off to $1,195. Additional packages like the Driver Confidence and Cruise Package at $495, Technology Package at $1,600, and Premium Seating Package at $995 can further increase the expense.


Buying Advice

The Chevy Trailblazer LT trim with Premium Seating Package at $995 and Adaptive Cruise Control Package at $770 makes the best possible combination. With the aforementioned, the Trailblazer gets leather upholstery for seating and a leatherette steering wheel along with Adaptive Cruise Control. On the whole, such ambiance and safety nudge costs $27,725, that ensures an impressive drive altogether.

Features

The LS starts the trim lineup at an MSRP of $22,795 that gets a 6-speaker audio system and Chevrolet Infotainment 3 Plus System as standards. The Chevy Safety Assist is also integrated for improving the safety pursuit. Taking expense a little higher at $24,995, the LT receives features such as the Heated driver and front passenger seats and Cruise Control as other extras over the LS trim.

The RS trim comes next at a price tag of $26,895 that further adds Heated Steering Wheel and HD Rear Vision Camera to its available assets. Moreover, the 18" High Gloss Black Aluminum Wheels over the 17-inch wheels are also spotted with this trim. The last in the production is the 2022 Chevy Trailblazer ACTIV trim costing $26,895 that refines the cloth upholstery in the base trim to Leather upholstery along with exclusive 17-inch sport terrain tires. The OnStar & Chevrolet Connected Services and Teen Driver are other values in consideration as well.

Engine and Performance
8.0/10

With it the Trailblazer is surprisingly adept at getting around in day-to-day traffic. - Edmunds

The 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer has two engine options on offer depending on the trims. The first one is the 1.2L Turbo I-3 that produces 137 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque. It is coupled with a CVT in the FWD layout for the LS and LT trims. This coupling is replaced by the 155 hp 1.3L Turbo I-3 with 9-speed automatic transmission in AWD configuration for the remaining lineup. However, switching to this format costs up to $2,000 extra in addition.

The 2022 Trailblazer, being configuration-specific, has drive modes such as the Normal, Sport, and Snow. This allows it to have driving dynamics from normal cruising to sporty handling to high-traction maneuvering. However, the ride still feels adept with its soft suspension meaning the bump will be transferred to the cabin. But to compensate for that, the ACTIV trim gets off-road suspension tuning as a standard that improves undulation dampening and wheel alignments.

Fuel Economy
8.0/10

The Chevy Trailblazer is a pretty good SUV. Anybody can appreciate its decent fuel economy ratings. - cars.usnew.com

Interior
8.0/10

The cabin's design isn't as cheeky as the exterior's, but it's spacious, functional, and outfitted with plenty of convenience items. - Car And Driver

It may not be as playfully styled as some of its competitors, but the 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer has a nice, cohesive look inside and out. - The Car Connection

The 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer remains mechanically and dimensionally unchanged from the 2021 model year. However, the 4 new exterior colors such as the Crimson Metallic, Blue Glow Metallic, Vivid Orange Metallic, and Mahogany Red Metallic have been configured to enhance its exterior appeal.

Comparatively, the 2022 Trailblazer has a curb weight of 3030 lbs, and is 9-inch longer, and 4-inch taller than the Kona. As a result, the former is relatively harder to handle and turn at a tight corner than the Kona. On the other hand, it has 0.8-inch and 0.2-inch more ground clearance than Kona and HR-V respectively that allows it to have better off-road travel.

Some of the exterior styling features have been listed down: 

  • 17-inch wheels in different designs
  • LED front fog lamps and taillamps
  • Two-tone paint (ACTIV trim)
  • All-season tires
  • Available panoramic sunroof
  • Available blackout package

  • Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Forward Collision Alert
  • Front Pedestrian Braking
  • Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning
  • IntelliBeam auto high beams
Competition
8.0/10

2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer vs 2022 Ford EcoSport

The 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer has lower power than the 2022 Ford EcoSport but offers better fuel economy than the latter. Regarding the interior space, the Trailblazer has got more legroom and balanced cabin along with extra cargo capacity. Therefore it has to be Trailblazer between the two for enhanced practicality.

2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer vs 2022 Hyundai Kona

The 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer comes with comfortable rear row and cargo capacity which the Kona lacks. However, the performance curve and range economy favor the Kona by a slight margin. On the whole, the Trailblazer comes out to be a better value proposition to be invested in.

 

Final Verdict

The 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer will be unchanged yet it has virtues and features that are worth investing in. Right from the practicality to towing prowess to cabin roominess, there is hardly anything left to be worked upon. Though the features might be disappointing in lower-trim, but that is compensated in the higher trims. Considering the reliability and safety pursuit alongside the aforementioned positives strengthens its buying option.
