Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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.

After a 12-year hiatus, the Trailblazer name has been revived for the U.S.Part of the second Trailblazer generation introduced for 2021.

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

By:

For those needing the performance of a supercar and the space and comfort of a family SUV, the Audi RS Q8 is quite possibly the perfect solution.

Pros
Stunning performance
Glorious engine sound
Superb ride
Interior comfort and space

Cons
48V 'mild hybrid' not a hybrid
Steering lacks a little feel
2.3 tonnes is a lot of weight to hustle through corners

The RS Q8 is a new addition to the Q8 lineup for 2020.
Audi is going after the AMGs and BMW Ms of the world with the new RS version of its Q8 mid-size SUV. The 2020 Audi RS Q8 comes standard with a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 engine making 591 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque, with standard Quattro all-wheel drive to put all that power to the ground and an upgraded suspension and brakes to ensure it handles and stops as well as it goes. It looks a lot more aggressive than the standard Q8, too, thanks to 22-inch wheels, a wider body, and a rear spoiler. It will go on sale in the U.S. sometime in 2020.

2020 Audi RS Q8 will undoubtedly be a huge hit in the segment.With Lamborghini-esque power under the hood and the very latest Audi refinement in the cabin, it brings all the good stuff needed to run against the top competitors from BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Porsche.

Pros
More aggressive styling
Lamborghini engine under the hood
Impressively quick for a big SUV

Cons
How will it ride compared to the Merc and Bimmer?
Competition isn’t slowing down anytime soon
Might steal a few sales from the Lambo
