The 2021 Chevy Trailblazer is going to offer two engine options, a 1.2-liter three-cylinder and a 1.3-liter three-cylinder. A few weeks ago the EPA published its fuel economy specs for the larger turbocharged 1.3-liter engine, but now the EPA has released the fuel economy specs for the 1.2-liter engine.
The smaller 1.2-liter generates 137 horsepower and is rated at 28 mpg in the city, 31 mpg on the highway and 29 mpg combined. The 1.2-liter engine is mated to a CVT and is only available with front-wheel drive.
The larger 1.3-liter engine generates 155 horsepower and is available with either front- or all-wheel drive. With FWD the 1.3-liter is rated at 29 mpg city, 33 mpg highway and 31 mpg combined. Opting for AWD drops those figures down to 26 mpg city, 30 mpg highway and 28 mpg combined.
Those specs are ok, but not the best in the segment, since the Nissan Kicks gets up to 36 mpg on the highway and has a 33 mpg combined rating.
The 2021 Chevy Trailblazer starts at $19,995.
