Subcompact crossovers like the Chevy Trailblazer are ubiquitous, more affordable and have more spacious cabins. The 2023 Chevrolet TrailBlazer comes standard with a 137-hp turbocharged three-cylinder, while the 155-hp three-banger is optional.
Front-wheel-drive models come with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), but all-wheel drivers come exclusively with a smoother nine-speed automatic. Leasing a 2023 Chevrolet TrailBlazer will still give you access to this feeling of goodness.
Engine & Performance
Like one of the best Chevrolet models, Encore GX, the Trailblazer offers two different turbocharged three-cylinder engines, a 1.2-liter and a 1.3-liter. The former produces 137 horsepower and the latter generates 155 horses.
The 1.2-liter engine comes only with front-wheel drive and is equipped with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), while the 1.3-liter offers optional all-wheel drive. Opting for the all-wheel drive system also replaces the standard CVT with a well-coordinated nine-speed automatic.
The acceleration of a 1.3-liter all-wheel drive Trailblazer failed to impress during testing, where it loped to 60 miles per hour in a leisurely 9.4 seconds.
While the Trailblazer doesn’t offer a particularly athletic chassis, it handles curves very well, even though its ride is often harsh over road imperfections.
The most efficient Trailblazer, according to the EPA, is the front-wheel drive model with the larger 1.3-liter three-cylinder, which earns ratings of 29 mpg city and 33 mpg highway.
Upgrading to all-wheel drive reduces those numbers to 26 and 30, respectively. The EPA fuel economy estimates for the 2023 Chevrolet TrailBlazer are 29 mpg city and 31 highway.
The cabin’s design isn’t as cheeky as the exterior’s, but it’s spacious, functional, and outfitted with plenty of convenience items in the upper trims. The driving position is a high, SUV-like perch and there’s plenty of space for two adults to be comfortable in the rear seat.
Although most of the interior is rendered in black plastic, everything wears an attractive texture to avoid appearing cheap. Upper-level models add colored trim pieces and chrome embellishments that provide a more upscale look.
Behind the rear seat is a generous cargo bay, and the Chevy provides not only fold-flat rear seats but also a folding front passenger seat to create space for extra-long items.

Chevrolet equips every Trailblazer with a set of basic driver-assistance technology and key safety features, such as:
- Adaptive cruise control
- Standard automated emergency braking
- Lane-keeping assist
- Standard lane-departure warning
- Pedestrian detection
