Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Buick Envision’s more powerful engine, improved transmission, and lower price tag pique our interest.

Pros
Attractive styling
Should still be very quiet
Lower price helps
9-speed automatic could aid fuel economy, engine response

Cons
Turbo is AWD-only
Price climbs fast
Narrow interior
Doesn’t do much to stand out

The 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer is an old name on a new idea from GM.

Pros
Sharp looks
Heritage name
Right-sized
Standard active safety tech

Cons
Comparatively sedate interior
How much will it cost?
No powertrain info

The Chevy Trailblazer is all-new for 2021, returning to the market after Chevy ended production of the crossover in 2009.The 2021 Trailblazer starts at less than $20,000, making it cheaper than the Trax. Every model features a standard 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Except for the base L model, every Trailblazer can be had with all-wheel drive and the more powerful turbocharged 1.3-liter four-cylinder engine. While the Activ and RS models have distinctly rugged and sporty styling, respectively, we think the LT trim level is the best value. We'd also recommend opting for the bigger engine with all-wheel drive for an extra $2000.

Pros
Sharp exterior styling
Competitive list of standard and optional safety features
Activ model brings some light off-road capabilities

Cons
Engine and power figures seem weak on paper for an SUV
