Does anyone know if any ‘23 models have actually arrived a dealerships? I have talk to salesmen at 2 dealers about ordering a Trailblazer. Neither has any information about when they can accept an order. Is Chevrolet just going to slowly fade away due to lack of vehicles to sell?

The Trailblazer is being distributed through a port consensus order model. Orders are not being accepted unless allocation is granted.
I configured what I wanted on the Chevrolet website, then checked inventory in a 2000 mile radius. There were 4 in transit that were exact matches for me. I called the closest dealer and was able to put up a refundable deposit to hold it. When it was delivered to the dealership I bought a one way plane ticket, completed the purchase, then drove it home. I was able to break it in properly and enjoy a great road trip through Montana/Wyoming/Idaho/Oregon and visited Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. Arrived home with 1600 miles on the odometer.

I went a similar route as BigfootTB and used Chevrolet's website to find 2023 models in-transit close to me that matched what I wanted. I called about a half dozen dealerships in the Midwest and many were spoken for—as in being reserved. They (and the 2022 models) are hot-sellers. Probably one of the best bangs for your buck, IMHO.

With a stroke of luck and a late-night e-mail to a particular dealership, I was able to reserve mine without having to put down a refundable deposit. It's been a few weeks and should arrive on the lot this Friday. The preliminary estimate was at the end of October for arrival, but they are moving across the rails quite quickly.

The longest delays seem to be with the trucking companies that move them from their destination post-railway transit. At any rate, I'd highly suggest using Chevrolet's online portal where you can see ones that are in-transit to a location like you. A little bit of diligence will pay off.

I'm very excited to get mine. I went with the 2023 LT Model in Crimson Metallic. Priced at MSRP and they are delivering it ~ 100 miles to me at work for no charge. There are used 2021/2022 models where I'm at where the asking price is about $4,000 to $5,000 more than new.

A couple of weeks ago, I couldn't find any dealer that had the model wanted (was looking for an LT in Sterling Gray) in Central California(Fresno area), or if they had one they were wanting 2k-5k over sticker. I found a 2023 that I liked up in Sacramento at Future Chevrolet. Made contact with the sales team and wound up paying MSRP and they drove it down to me!
