In today's car market, the small SUV rules the roads. Subcompact and compact SUVs offer tons of great benefits for drivers, automakers, and the environment. However, it's no surprise that shoppers expect a car that can give them the best features in the segment while still being a great deal. After all, compact SUVs are the perfect blend of performance, space, comfort, and economy. But with so many of these SUVs on the market, how do you know which one to choose?
Start by determining what make and model has an outstanding reputation in the automotive industry. To us, that's the Chevy Trailblazer. We are proud to carry the 2023 Chevy Trailblazer as part of our award-winning lineup of Chevy sedans, SUVs, and trucks here at Newton Chevrolet Buick of Russellville. Chevy has a long, rich history of building cars of uncompromised quality, and the Trailblazer is no exception.
Packed with tons of features, the 2023 Trailblazer is the SUV for today's driver. It comes in four well-equipped trim levels and has dozens of available options so you can choose the right SUV for your needs. The Trailblazer offers its drivers power, efficiency, and comfort, all at a great price. Safety technology comes standard, so you can drive your family around in confidence. It's shockingly roomy for an SUV of its size, providing drivers with plenty of space for their belongings. With all of its available trims and options, the Trailblazer can be customized to meet your unique needs without compromising affordability.
The 2023 Chevy Trailblazer has enough desirable performance features to excite any driver. From capable and efficient engine options to stellar handling and a selection of drive modes, the Trailblazer was fine-tuned to live up to the highest expectations. Four exciting trims and the choice between standard front-wheel drive or available all-wheel drive let you choose the best fit for your plans.
Under the hood, you'll find a choice of two turbocharged engine options. The first available engine is a turbocharged 1.2L three-cylinder powertrain that produces 137 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque. The second available engine is a turbocharged 1.3L three-cylinder with an output of 155 hp and 174 lb-ft of torque. Both feel light and easy to drive, and both engines operate with the satisfying sound found in a turbo. Choose between a front-wheel drive (FWD) or an all-wheel drive (AWD) powertrain depending on how you plan to use your Trailblazer. Planning on off-roading? Get the AWD configuration for enhanced traction and better handling in dirt or mud.
One of the fun features of the 2023 Chevy Trailblazer is its three drive modes: Normal, Sport, and Snow. These help the driver stay in control by offering modes designed to fit different road conditions. On the AWD models, there is an additional AWD mode to tackle more rugged conditions. For more serious off-roading, the ACTIV trim comes with sport terrain tires, a suspension tuned for off-road adventures, and a front skid plate. The FWD models have a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), while the AWD models feature a nine-speed automatic transmission. Both are finely tuned to maximize fuel efficiency and enhance performance.
Speaking of fuel efficiency, the Chevy Trailblazer has been designed for good acceleration without sacrificing fuel economy. This is perfectly demonstrated by Chevy's decision to integrate turbocharged engines instead of heavy, naturally aspirated engines that require more cylinders. The EPA estimated figures show that the Trailblazer delivers up to 29 MPG in the city and 33 MPG on the highway, favorable figures for a gas-powered SUV. If you're looking for a vehicle that can go the extra mile, the 2023 Trailblazer offers a towing capacity of up to 1,000 lbs, so you can bring more of the stuff you love along for the ride.
The interior of the 2023 Chevy Trailblazer goes above and beyond. Drivers are welcomed into the vehicle by durable, comfortable materials, an easy-to-use infotainment center with the latest technology, and plenty of features that make driving a breeze. Customers can choose between four impressive trims to get exactly the specifications they need. The LS, LT, ACTIV, and RS each offer a unique package of features.
Enjoy a high driving position for great visibility while relaxing in the comfortably designed driver's seat. The standard Trailblazer is built from high-quality, long-lasting materials that look classy and feel good to the touch. If you want to upgrade to a higher trim level, you can expect upscale details with additional colored trim pieces and chrome embellishments. Everywhere you look, there are thoughtful elements contained in this stylish SUV.
We love the spacious design of the interior and the attention to functional details. A reversible two-tier adaptable cargo system provides ample space. Easily travel with luggage, groceries, sporting equipment, and more. If you find yourself needing even more space, the front passenger seat can fold down flat, allowing you to transport items up to 8.5 ft in length with the rear hatch closed. Overall, the cargo space is exceptionally generous for a vehicle in its class, and the storage options don't end there. The cabin is outfitted with several conveniently placed cubbies and a roomy center console for storing your smaller items such as purses, phones, wallets, and more.
The cabin also houses the latest and greatest entertainment features offered by Chevrolet. The dashboard features either a standard 7-inch or optional 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system that pairs easily with your favorite Apple or Android devices. You can add SiriusXM satellite radio or activate the standard WiFi hotspot for internet on the go. Sound comes through clear and crisp on either the standard six-speaker sound system or the available seven-speaker Bose stereo system, depending on which trim you choose. The Trailblazer also allows you to connect two different Bluetooth devices simultaneously.
Safety has always been a top priority for Chevrolet with all its models, and the Trailblazer is no different. The 2022 Chevy Trailblazer earned a Top Safety Pick+ designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The 2023 model comes with standard Chevy Safety Assist, a package of six advanced safety and driver assistance features to help you drive with peace of mind. As you move up the trim levels, additional driver assistance technologies are available to optimize your experience. Add features like available Adaptive Cruise Control or Side Blind Zone Alert to take the guesswork out of your commute. Plus, Chevy always provides the option for OnStar and Chevrolet Connected Services, so you can stay connected anywhere, anytime.
The standard safety features on every 2023 Trailblazer include Automatic Emergency Braking, Front Pedestrian Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Following Distance Indicator, Forward Collision Alert, and IntelliBeam. There is also an available HD Rear Vision Camera, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Rear Park Assist, Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, Adaptive Cruise Control, and more. We know safety is a shared value for our customers and us, and we're confident that the safety and driver assistance technology on the 2023 Trailblazer will help you drive with confidence. Whether you are taking a long road trip, going off-roading, or just exiting the grocery store parking lot, this suite of features helps highlight Chevy's unwavering dedication to your safety.
Once your children are old enough to start driving, the Chevy Trailblazer has a standard Teen Driver mode to help with the overwhelm of new drivers. With this feature, you can activate a customizable setting on your vehicle to help promote safe driving habits. The technology can limit certain features of the SUV while also preventing safety features from being turned off when your teen is behind the wheel. Lastly, you can request an in-vehicle report card that presents information on your teen's driving habits and helps you set a lasting impression on the value of safe driving.
