Blazing Trails of a Different Sort: 2023 Chevrolet Trailblazer RS

We finally got some wheel time with one of Chevy's latest SUVs. Chevy revived the Trailblazer name in 2021 for this small crossover aimed at urban life, that won't really be blazing many trails off road. However, with push-button AWD, a 9-speed automatic transmission, and a turbocharged 3-cylinder engine in a small platform, it is a fun little vehicle on the streets.

We tested this 2023 RS model with racier looks inspired by the Camaro and larger Blazer SUV. The RS trim gets blacked out grilles, badging, and bowties front and rear, sportier looking wheels, and a RED roof! Inside, red accents abound making this playful vehicle look more aggressively styled from the driver's seat.
