February 22nd, 2023 by

Get sporty with the 2023 Chevy Trailblazer, an all-star subcompact crossover SUV that’s ready for whatever you want to throw at it. On-road or off, the Trailblazer has plenty of moves. These small crossovers are also modern and comfortable, leaving you to choose from a long list of upscale features.

Why choose the 2023 Chevy Trailblazer?


These extra-small crossover SUVs deliver everything you want in a daily drive, from a smart cabin to a peppy performance. With four trim models available — the LS, LT, Activ, and RS — you can choose the level of features that matches up with your budget.

The base LS delivers features you’ll appreciate, including a smartphone-friendly infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Forward collision mitigation and lane keeping assistance are also standard. The LT adds to the standard lineup with more utility, like roof rails and LED foglights. If you’re looking for a sportier drive, the Activ adds underbody skid plate and a tow hitch receiver. This model is also a little more luxurious, with faux leather upholstery and a two-tone roof. Finally, the top-trim RS adds to the Activ lineup with flashy wheels and red interior accents.

How does the 2023 Chevy Trailblazer drive?


The Trailblazer is an excellent daily cruiser, supplying you with enough power to keep up with traffic and get around with confidence. As a subcompact crossover, it’s also a thrifty option, earning up to 31 mpg combined (29 city/33 highway).

There are two powertrains available for the Trailblazer:

  • Standard turbocharged 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine (137 horsepower, 162 lb-ft of torque) + continuously variable transmission (CVT)
  • Optional turbo 1.3L three-cylinder engine (155 hp, 174 lb-ft) + nine-speed automatic

The LS and LT come with the standard engine, but the upgraded powertrain is available as an option. These trims also come standard with front-wheel drive, and they’re only available with all-wheel drive when you choose the upgraded 1.3-liter engine.

The Activ and RS trim models come with the turbocharged 1.3-liter engine and nine-speed automatic transmission. However, they’re available with either front- or all-wheel drive.

Which exterior colors are available for the 2023 Chevy Trailblazer?


Available colors vary slightly according to which trim model you select. The standard list of colors, available for the LS and LT, includes:

  • Summit White
  • Mosaic Black Metallic
  • Crimson Metallic
  • Blue Glow Metallic
  • Vivid Orange Metallic
  • Mahogany Red Metallic
  • Sterling Gray Metallic
