Several modern-day vehicles in Chevy's stable may need a refresh, yet not the Trailblazer. If you forgot, the subcompact crossover embraced its mid-cycle update a little over a year ago, sporting a few interesting novelties across the range.
Don't look for anything drastic, as this is still a facelift. The updates revolve around the face, which features a few modifications here and there, two fresh colors added to the palette, and 19-inch alloys available on the RS trim level, among others.

Inside, the automaker has given it a new 11-inch infotainment system and an 8-inch digital instrument cluster, which are important upgrades over the previous iteration Chevrolet Trailblazer. The air vents were positioned lower, and save for a few other things, everything carries over.

Yep, that includes the engine, too, which is a 1.2-liter unit with 137 horsepower (139 ps/102 kW) and 162 pound-foot (220 Nm) of torque, or the 1.3-liter mill that kicks out 155 hp (157 ps/116 kW) and 174 lb-ft (236 Nm). Front-wheel drive is still standard across the range, and the all-wheel drive system is optional. Pricing for the 2024 model year starts at $23,100, plus destination and dealer fees.

With the bowtie brand's subcompact crossover being four years old and receiving a mid-cycle refresh in 2023, we reckon it will stick around for a few more years. Nevertheless, that does not mean Chevy isn't considering its successor, yet it is probably still a work in progress. And there is no reason to believe it won't be replaced, as Chevrolet sold over 111,000 copies of the Trailblazer in 2023 alone, up from 60,000+ in 2022 and 90,000+ the year before.

But what do you think the next Trailblazer will be like? Will it look like an evolution of its predecessor? Will it morph into a futuristic-looking crossover? Will it have completely new underpinnings? Will Chevy opt to keep it around with ICE power? Will it be an EV? These questions will be answered when the new-gen rolls out, and anyone who claims they know something about it is probably lying unless they're involved in its development.

Nevertheless, that doesn't mean we cannot let our imagination run loose in the meantime, and this is precisely what kdesignag has done to come up with these digital illustrations. The model imagined here does not share much with the current Trailblazer. It has a new face, a completely different profile, a different back end, and so on. From certain angles, we might say it kind of resembles the large Tahoe, which uses the same nuts and bolts as the latest Cadillac Escalade. Overall, we wouldn't be mad if the next Trailblazer looks similar to these CGIs, and we think neither would you, right?
