There are several subcompact SUVs to choose from today. If you're looking for a crossover that boasts sporty exterior styling inspired by the Camaro, there's probably a 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer in your future. But the Trailblazer isn't only about good looks. Buyers at dealerships like the Wilkesboro area Chevrolet dealer report they're impressed with the Trailblazer's roomy seating, well-designed cabin, and outstanding safety scores.

For 2022 the Chevy Trailblazer ACTIV and RS trims pick up a standard heated steering wheel that's available on the LT trim. The folks at the Chevrolet dealership near Wilkesboro tell us there are some new dealer-installed options, such as a trailer package and roof rack cross rails. Some new paint colors join the lineup, including Crimson, Blue Glow, Vivid Orange and Mahogany Red.

Automotive reviewers praise the 2022 Chevy Trailblazer. The auto experts Kelley Blue Book's write:

"As the entry-level model of the expansive Chevrolet SUV lineup, it's the most affordable of the bunch. The Trailblazer is a strong value choice in its segment with a low starting price, good fuel economy, and some good standard features like an intuitive and modern infotainment system."

The 2022 Trailblazer seats five passengers. Buyers can choose one of four trims, listed as LS, LT, ACTIV and RS. The Trailblazer's standard powerplant is a turbocharged 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine that puts out 137 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque. A continuously variable transmission (CVT) sends power to the front wheels. For more power, there's a turbocharged 1.3-liter three-cylinder engine that's good for 155 hp and 174 lb-ft, linked to a nine-speed automatic. The turbocharged unit gets standard front-wheel drive, but buyers can choose available all-wheel drive. The Trailblazer gets an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating up to 29 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway.*

The base LS trim includes 17-inch alloy wheels, a fold-flat front passenger seat, a 7-inch infotainment touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, an audio system with six speakers, and a Wi-Fi hot spot.

The Chevy Safety Assist system is standard. It comes with automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, forward-collision alert, lane-keeping assist, lane-departure warning, automatic high beams, and a following distance indicator.

If you're looking for some off-road fun, you'll want to consider the Trailblazer ACTIV trim. It comes with the more powerful 1.3 liter engine, 17-inch Hankook Sport Terrain all-season tires, a suspension tuned for off-roading, a front fascia with more ground clearance, a dual exhaust, trapezoidal exhaust tips, roof rails and a two-tone roof.

Buyers can add several optional packages, including the Driver Confidence package, the Sun and Liftgate package, the Technology package and the Convenience package.

Chevrolet engineers its vehicles with safety in mind. The 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer is very safe. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named the Trailblazer to its list of Top Safety Pick+ models, the organization's highest safety designation. It includes the best score of Good for all crash tests.
