The Chevrolet TrailBlazer and Trailblazer are actually two separate models of subcompact crossover and mid-size SUVs sold by Chevrolet since 1998 and 2019 respectively. The two different models are indicated by either the lower-case or upper-case ‘B’ in the name. The towing capacities listed on this page are for the modern crossover SUV version.

The first generation model was replaced by the Chevrolet Traverse. The crossover version sits between its siblings, the Chevrolet Trax and Chevrolet Equinox.

The new version is often compared to the likes of the Hyundai Kona, Kia Seltos, and even the Volvo XC40. The previous version is often compared to other mid-size SUVs like the Ford Escape.

A notable difference between the two versions is the drive systems. The first generation was available in rear-wheel and four-wheel drive, while the newer models are available in front-wheel and all-wheel drive.

Powertrains for both versions have also been rather different. The first iteration typically featured much larger engines, ranging from a 4.2-liter LL8 inline-6 to a 6-liter LS2 V8 in performance models.

The new iteration comes with much smaller engines, ranging from either a turbocharged 1.2-liter or 1.3-liter LIH inline-3. All engines have been petrol for both models.

Trim levels for the newer Trailblazer consist of the base L, followed by LS, LT, ACTIV, and RS. The first three are the base options with ranging specifications, while ACTIV and RS are more off-road and sports-focused trims.

For the older version, trim levels went from the base LS, through to LT and the top-of-the-range LTZ. There was also an SS version introduced in 2006 with high-performance specs.

The first iteration of the Trailblazer was also given a second generation in certain markets. This version was heavily influenced by the very successful Toyota Fortuner or SW4. This version is currently in its second generation as of 2015.
