GM revives Chevy Trailblazer to slot between Trax and Equinox

The crossover will be priced under $20,000.

General Motors has revived the Chevrolet Trailblazer nameplate for a small crossover that will serve as a new budget model below the Equinox.

The five-seater borrows its front-end styling from the larger Blazer, including Chevy's dual-port grille and an accent bar that flows into the headlights, while the rear end is said to be "sports car-inspired."

The Activ trim package features a two-tone roof, unique front and rear fascias, sport terrain tires and special suspension tuning that is claimed to improve ride comfort when traveling on gravel roads. The RS edition represents a sporty yet street-focused alternative, with black bowtie logos and a rear diffuser.

Two small turbocharged engines will be available, either a 1.2- or 1.3-liter unit, with maximum output of 155 horsepower.

GM promises the entry-level 2021 Chevy Trailblazer will cost less than $20,000. Additional details will be announced ahead of its spring 2020 launch.
