One excellent choice for subcompact SUV buyers is the 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer. Moreover, it’s often passed over for other options. However, if you’re debating between it and a competitor, you might be wondering what the Trailblazer brings to the table. Here are three standout 2022 Chevy Trailblazer features that help it beat the opposition.

2022 Chevy Trailblazer Activ model is good for light off-roading

Although the Trailblazer isn’t a Jeep Wrangler or a Toyota Tacoma, it is capable of some light off-roading. We’re talking about driving on dirt roads to your campsite, not crawling over boulders or puddles of mud. For $26,895, the Activ trim is a rugged model that brings a few things others don’t have.

According to Edmunds, a more powerful turbocharged 1.3-liter engine, tire and suspension tunings for off-roading, a tow hitch receiver, underbody skid plates, a two-tone roof, unique exterior styling, simulated leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel, and more are standard. Although it’s not a pure off-roader, it provides more rugged capability than most subcompact SUVs in its class.

Impressive standard technology

At $22,795, the 2022 Chevy Trailblazer LS base model probably isn’t well-equipped, right? While it certainly isn’t a Lexus or Audi rival, it comes with a surprising number of tech features. Every version of the Trailblazer has standard wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. These pieces of smartphone integration technology are essential in the modern day because they almost entirely replace your slow, unintuitive infotainment system with your cell phone.

In addition, standard technology includes a Wi-Fi hotspot, a seven-inch touchscreen, a six-speaker audio system, forward collision mitigation, lane keeping assist, and automatic high beams. Considering some vehicles don’t come with these features without buying higher trims, it’s hard not to love that they’re standard on the Trailblazer LS base model.

The 2022 Chevy Trailblazer is packed with options

Finally, one of the standout features for the Trailblazer is its versatility. When buying most vehicles, you’re trapped with whichever equipment comes with each trim level. However, the 2022 Chevy Trailblazer changes the recipe a little bit. Sure, there are four trim levels that always come with the same standard equipment; But there are also plenty of optional packages that customers can pick and choose to get suitable features for them.

First, the Sun and Liftgate package offers a panoramic sunroof and a hands-free liftgate. It’s available for every Trailblazer model, regardless of trim. Next, the Driver Confidence package contains blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert, and rear parking sensors. Contrarily, this one is only available for the LT trim and higher.

Additionally, the Convenience package is available to the LT trim and above, offering an auto-dimming rearview mirror, rear USB ports, a power outlet, automatic climate control, and a bigger eight-inch touchscreen. Lastly, a Technology package with LED headlights, adaptive cruise control, a wireless smartphone charging pad, an eight-inch touchscreen, a high-resolution rearview camera, and a Bose premium audio system is available for only the Activ and RS trims.

Standout features for the 2022 Chevy Trailblazer

In conclusion, the 2022 Chevy Trailblazer is an excellent overall subcompact SUV. While it isn’t the most popular option, there’s a lot going for it. Highlights include the light off-roading Activ trim, the impressive amount of standard tech features, and the many optional packages. Throughout the lineup, owners can pick and choose exactly what they want. Building your perfect, affordable Trailblazer is easy.
