The Trax and Trailblazer are both compact, capable family vehicles. However, they differ in terms of size, powertrain options, and tech features. To help you decide which model is right for your family, here’s a look at how the 2022 Chevrolet Trax and Trailblazer differ.
The 2022 Trailblazer offers two choices — a standard 1.2-liter turbo that produces 137 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque, as well as an available 1.3-liter engine that kicks it up a notch with 155 horsepower and 174 lb-ft of torque. The Trax, on the other hand, offers just one engine. Its 1.4-liter turbo gives you 155 horsepower and 174 lb-ft of torque.
If space is a priority, the Trailblazer might be a better fit for your family. It offers a bit more room to stretch out, as well as a maximum cargo capacity of 54.4 cubic feet. The Trax is more suited to an urban lifestyle that requires a nimble, compact vehicle. It still offers plenty of space, with a total of 48.4 cubic feet with the seats folded flat.
When it comes to safety tech, the 2022 Trailblazer comes standard with the family-friendly Chevy Safety Assist bundle. This suite contains six active safety technologies, like Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Automatic Emergency Braking. The Trax, on the other hand, comes standard with essentials like a rearview camera and air bags.
