If you’re one for having options at your disposal, the LT Trailblazer is for you.

For when it gets chilly here in Alliston, make use of the heated front seats, as well as the remote entry and remote vehicle start.

ACTIV

The ACTIV trim is one of the top two trims, only available in all-wheel drive. While the ACTIV Trailblazer has the same size as the other trims, it is specifically-tuned for off-roading. Traverse rugged terrain with ease as the ACTIV trim utilizes its skid plate and sport terrain tires. The engine is upgraded on the AWD from the FWD base, to give you even more power in the city or off-road, with a 155 horsepower 1.3L Turbo engine. Style on the ACTIV trim is spruced up as well alongside its performance potential with a two-tone colour roof design, and a dual trapezoid tip dual exhaust instead of the tucked under style of the previous trims. The interior is improved, too, thanks to the leather-wrapped touches over the steering wheel, shifter job and seats. For those looking to explore the great unknown in your Trailblazer, the ACTIV trim is the perfect crossover for you.

Highlighted upgrades from the LT trim:

  • 1.3L Turbo engine (with Variable Valve Timing, Direct Injection and stop/start tech)
  • 9-speed automatic transmission
  • All-Wheel Drive
  • Dual-outlet exhaust (with trapezoid polished tips)
  • 17-inch high-gloss black machined wheels
  • Sport terrain tires
  • Off-road suspension tuning
  • Functional skid plate
  • LED taillights
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Leather-wrapped shift knob
  • Rear centre armrest

Starting from $30,598* (base price before freight, not including increases)

RS

The RS is the other 2021 Trailblazer trim that’s only available in All-Wheel Drive, and comes priced the same as the ACTIV trim. Whereas the ACTIV trim leans more to the off-road utility-side of the Trailbalzer’s characteristics and features, the RS is more concerned with sport style. That’s all represented, firstly, by its dynamic exterior elements, with 18-inch high-gloss black wheels, and the front and rear fascia featuring bold black colouring, instead of the lower trim silver paint. You’re able to get the two-tone roof on this trim as well, but in a more subtle contrast with Mosaic Black and Scarlet Red options. The 1.3L Turbo engine remains the same as the ACTIV, acting as the heart of this stylish performer. For unmatched Trailblazer looks, the top-level RS trim is a sure bet.

Highlighted upgrades from the LT trim:

  • 1.3L Turbo engine (with Variable Valve Timing, Direct Injection and stop/start tech)
  • 9-speed automatic transmission
  • All-Wheel Drive
  • Dual-outlet exhaust (with round polished tips)
  • 18-inch high-gloss black machined wheels
  • LED taillights
  • Black bowtie emblems & badging
  • Leather-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel
  • Leather-wrapped shift knob
  • Rear centre armrest

Starting from $30,598* (base price before freight, not including increases)
