If you’re in the market for an affordable small SUV, Chevrolet has two great options to consider. Setting aside their distinctive looks, there are several differences between the 2021 Chevrolet Trax and Chevrolet Trailblazer to consider before making your decision.
Max storage space
Both the Trax and Trailblazer make good use of their compact sizes. But if you’re looking for the one with the most cargo volume, the Trailblazer offers 54.4 cubic feet with the second row laid flat. The Trax is still impressive in its own right with 48.4 cubic feet of total cargo volume. Both can accommodate long cargo items, too — the Trax has a max cargo length of 8 feet and the Trailblazer has a max length of 8.5 feet.
Both the 2021 Chevrolet Trax and 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer earned the 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score for safety from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Each also offers a range of safety features, including Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
The 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer features Chevy Safety Assist, a suite of driver-assist technologies including Forward Collision Alert and Automatic Emergency Braking, Front Pedestrian Braking, and Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning.
Trim choices and engine options
With the 2021 Chevrolet Trax, you can choose from the well-appointed LS and LT trims. Both versions of the Trax feature a standard 1.4-liter ECOTEC® Turbo engine that puts out 155 horsepower and returns 31 mpg on the highway.*
The all-new Trailblazer offers a bit more variety with five trims: L, LS, LT, ACTIV, and RS. The Trailblazer lineup includes two engine options: a standard 1.2-liter ECOTEC® Turbo and an available 1.3-liter ECOTEC® Turbo.
