Since there's a lot of stuff up in the air about the Trailblazer at this point, I wanted to see if there are any particular specs or features that you want to see Checy put in it? Personally I'm looking for something that can handle itself in inclement weather so I'm hoping that there is an off-road specific package that becomes available.

I hope Chevy does something like this, I heard that Yakima is working with Ford to make accessories for the new Bronco.
Are they really? I had no idea. It makes sense I guess since the Bronco is probably going to be more off-road focused.

Partnerships aside, Ford and GM should ramp up development of their own in-house brands to create more performance oriented upgrades.

OR... just partner with performance brands. :D

That would be fun to see. It would really change how people view these small crossovers.

So here's some of the specs and features that are coming for the Trailblazer. How do they compare with everyone's expectations?

Suite of Standard Safety and Driver Assistance Features
All Trailblazer trims come with a comprehensive list of standard active safety and driver assistance features2, including:

  • Forward Collision Alert
  • Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Front Pedestrian Braking
  • IntelliBeam Headlamps (Auto High Beam Assist)
  • Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning
  • Rear Vision Camera
  • Teen Driver
  • Rear Seat Reminder3
  • OnStar4
Additional optional active safety and driver assistance features2 include:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control - Camera
  • Rear Park Assist
  • Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • HD Rear Vision Camera
ACTIV Tuned for Off-Road Use
Trailblazer ACTIV is equipped with unique tires and shock tuning. The ACTIV dampers are tuned to enhance vehicle performance and ride comfort when traveling on gravel roads. The Hankook Sport Terrain 17-inch tires feature an aggressive shoulder design and an all-season tread pattern.

The front fascia on Trailblazer ACTIV has been revised with the lower section designed for improved ground clearance. Additional exterior differentiation includes two-tone roof, standard roof rails and trapezoid-shaped exhaust tips.

Connectivity and Functionality
The Trailblazer will feature Chevy’s latest infotainment system5, providing the ability to use two Bluetooth-paired phones6 concurrently, which enables passengers in the vehicle to use their cellphones hands-free or the driver to use multiple phones hands-free.

The audio system has available wireless Apple CarPlay7 and Android Auto8 connectivity and available SiriusXM with 360L9, featuring exclusive content, including commercial-free music, interviews, shows and performances. The system even learns customer preferences and shares recommendations based on listening habits. SiriusXM with 360L delivers both a satellite and streaming listening experience with more SiriusXM channels than ever before in the vehicle, plus the ability to make on-demand programming choices.

The Trailblazer features 40/60 split folding second row seats, which enables the vehicle to accommodate objects up to 8.5 feet long. Overall storage capacity is rated up to 54.4cubic feet10 with the second row folded. For additional convenience, an available hands-free liftgate, with logo projection improves ease of loading and unloading cargo.

Power and AWD Confidence
Powered by either a 1.2L turbo or 1.3L turbo engine, the Trailblazer will deliver up to 155 horsepower. Both engines are mated with a standard Continuously Variable Transmission with selectable stop/start capability. A nine-speed automatic transmission is also available on Trailblazers equipped with the 1.3L engine and all-wheel drive.

The Trailblazer is available with Chevy’s selectable AWD, also found in the Blazer and Traverse. Selectable AWD allows drivers to decide whether to activate their AWD system in off-road or inclement weather situations, or to deactivate when AWD performance is not required, to achieve improved fuel economy.

Drive modes on front-wheel drive models include:
  • Normal: Tailored for daily commuting and focused on ride comfort
  • Snow: Provides more progressive throttle input for improved vehicle acceleration on snow- and ice-covered roads
  • Sport: Modifies steering effort and shifting for a sportier feel and response
AWD models add unique calibrations for more rear-wheel torque at lower speeds to improve the driving experience on moderately steep and unpaved surfaces.

The Trailblazer is expected to arrive in U.S. showrooms in spring 2020. Specific trim and option pricing details will be announced closer to launch.
