The 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show has managed to bring together a good number of car manufacturers, including Chevrolet, who took the opportunity to present a reborn Chevy Trailblazer, a van that has everything needed to become a family vehicle, and adventure
A renewed aesthetic
It is good to emphasize that this car was presented earlier this year, in fact, critics of the American brand agree that the Trailblazer is a radical deviation from its predecessor, since they consider it a small five-passenger crossover that is located between the Trax and the Equinox. In that sense we find in the design front, the model follows in the footsteps of the Blazer and presents a prominent double port grid that is flanked by quadruple lighting units. In the same way, the headlights of the car are pointed, and have LED daytime running lights and powerful night lights. On the sides of the bumper there are fog lights embedded in a black base. Further down, there is a fake protective plate and a plastic liner that wraps around the vehicle;
On the sides of the car we see a chiseled body and pronounced rear fenders. The designers were also responsible for installing a relatively flat roof and a distinctive C-pillar. The rear is a bit flat, as it has a locked rear door and enveloping taillights, a spoiler in the highest area of the glass and a third stop in LED.
Despite being a Trailblazer, the model is a soft vehicle. However, shoppers can order the ACTIV trim package, which includes heavy duty fascias, a single grill and a double trapezoidal exhaust system. Other highlights that give more weight to its value are off-road focused dampers, a two-tone roof and 17-inch wheels with Hankook Sport Terrain tires.
Buyers can also opt for an RS variant, in this case this model has a massive mesh grid, black bowtie emblems and a sports double exhaust system. The model also has a unique rear bumper with an integrated diffuser.
Chevrolet Trailblazer: The cabin
As for its interior, a three-spoke steering wheel, bright black details and metallic details are perceived. This crossover also has a modern information and entertainment system that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto wireless.
With regard to the load capacity, with the second-row seats folded, the model has a load capacity of up to 54.4 cubic feet or what is equal to about 1,540 liters. The front passenger seat can also be folded and this allows the vehicle to accommodate items up to 2.6 meters long.

In what has to do with its mechanics we will find two types of turbocharged engines that displace 1.2 and 1.3 liters.
