If you’re looking for a versatile, sophisticated, and spacious small SUV, the 2022 Chevy Trailblazer may be perfect for you. With useful technology, extensive safety features, a powerful engine, and a roomy cabin, this car is ideal for adventures. Read on to explore the key features of this amazing vehicle.

Power and Performance

Its three drive modes—normal, all-wheel drive, and sport drive—give you the power to adjust your traction and handling wherever you go. If you’re an off-roading fanatic, the ACTIV variant may be an excellent choice for you. This version boasts sport terrain tires, a functional front skid plate, and a suspension specifically for use on rough terrains.

Safety Features

With the 2022 Trailblazer, you’ll get Chevy Safety Assist, which is a suite of the following safety and driver assistance features:

  • Forward collision alert: This feature warns you if the vehicle detects a potential front-end collision with the vehicle in front of you.
  • Automatic emergency braking: This feature can reduce the severity of a front-end collision with a vehicle you’re following.
  • Front pedestrian braking: This feature helps you avoid or reduce the severity of a collision with a pedestrian in front of you.
  • Lane keep assist with lane departure warning: This feature gives you a visual and auditory warning if you’re drifting out of detected lane lines.
  • Following distance indicator: This metric tells you the gap time in seconds between you and the vehicle in front of you.
  • Intellibeam high-beam assist: This trademark feature automatically turns the vehicle’s high-beam headlamps on and off depending on the traffic conditions.

The following safety functionalities are also available with this model:

  • Rear-vision camera: This camera presents you with an image of the space directly behind your vehicle when you’re reversing at low speeds. It can help you park with ease and avoid colliding with nearby objects.
  • Teen Driver technology: This system offers customizable settings through a key fob to encourage safe driving practices and habits. For example, the Buckle-to-Drive setting prevents the driver from shifting to “Park” if their seat belt isn’t fastened.
  • Rear camera mirror: This camera provides you with a wide view of behind the vehicle while you’re driving.
  • Adaptive cruise control: This feature ensures that you maintain a particular gap time between you and the vehicle you’re following, reducing the need to accelerate and brake often while you’re driving.
  • OnStar safety and security: If you get into an accident, need assistance recovering a stolen vehicle, or encounter another emergency, you can ask for assistance from a trained OnStar advisor.


Advanced technology in the 2022 Chevy Trailblazer lets you stay connected, even while on the go. Here are some excellent features of this innovative Chevy model:

  • Wireless phone integration: Your vehicle can integrate seamlessly with your smartphone through wireless Android Auto and wireless Apple CarPlay compatibility. You can then see the features of your phone on the Chevrolet Infotainment System.
  • Available wireless device charging: The technology package, available with ACTIV and RS trims, gives you a charging pad to wirelessly charge your mobile devices. This makes it even easier to ensure that your devices are fully charged for all your adventures.
  • SiriusXM: Standard on all Chevy Trailblazer models, SiriusXM gives you commercial-free music, news, comedy and talk shows, sports, weather, and more. If you decide to continue your subscription after your free trial, your plan automatically renews afterward.
  • Built-in Alexa:  Voice-command technology makes it simple to complete tasks while focusing on maintaining safe driving practices. The built-in Alexa lets you stream music, add items to your Amazon shopping list, and connect with smart home devices, all from your vehicle.
