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

The MU-X may look and feel a bit more basic than the Everest or Fortuner, but its tough Isuzu truck underpinnings is this SUV’s secret weapon. Isuzu also builds big commercial engines, designed to be reliable and robust, and that DNA is this engine.

Pros
Great new engine
Capable off-roader
Decent third row

Cons
Cabin is starting to age
Boot is smaller than some rivals
No advanced safety equipment

Like the D-MAX ute on which it's based, the evolution of Isuzu UTE's MU-X seven-seat SUV has remained relatively slow, its latest update headlined by extra torque from its 3.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel (now 130kW and 430Nm, up from 380Nm) and a new six-speed automatic transmission (previously five).

Pros
Rugged and practical
Very comfy ride
Drop-down rear video unit

Cons
Lacking some new safety tech
Turbo lag from a standing start
Rather basic cab trim
