The Trailblazer’s Impressive MPG Rating
Shoppers who are interested in purchasing a small SUV want the space without sacrificing the fuel economy. The 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer was revealed almost a year ago as a compact car offered in its lineup, squeezing between the entry-level Trax and the highly favored Equinox. At long last, an official EPA rating for the Trailbrazer’s fuel mileage has finally been released…kind of…
The newest Trailblazer certainly lives up to its name as it is offered with 1.2-liter as well as a 1.3-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine with either front or all four wheels. According to Fuel Economy, there an option for the 1.3-liter AWD model to have a little collaboration with a nine-speed automatic transmission, the highest-spec powertrain option.
Additionally, the 2021 Chevy model earns a 26 mpg rating in city conditions with 30 mpg as the official rating for the highway. In general, this rating a little better than the miniature Trax with its high-spec 1.4-liter turbo three-cylinder and AWD, however, this comparison is very like-for-like. On the other hand, the Trailblazer defeats the larger Equinox despite its arrangement. Those who decide upon the 1.5-liter turbo engine with AWD in the Equinox should know that it would be pretty similar at 27 mpg combined.
It might not seem like it, but the new Trailblazer is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to rising up against the AWD competition. It’s 28 combined mpg rating is perfectly equal to the Honda HR-V, though ranks lower only slightly for the highway and accelerates past the Mazda CX-30 at a rating of 27 mpg combined. The domestic competition also has trouble keeping up with the Trailblazer as the Jeep Renegade matches up at 26 mpg and Ford’s EcoSport model comes in a little behind at 25 combined mpg, even though its closer to the Chevy Trax in size.
The Trailblazer is David in the market of Goliath with its smaller 1.2-liter engine and 4WD still dominating in terms of having better fuel economy, but as a note, the exact figures are not available right now. However, assessing from the estimates from FWD competitors, it is expected that Trailblazer will come in close to 30 mpg combined.
