A compact SUV is all I needed to drive on our weekend road trip to Georgetown, Texas. But the most exciting part of our trip was no whining from the backseat! Please take a look at my 2021 Chevy Trailblazer AWD RS Review. Chevy provided the Trailblazer for me to review. All opinions are my own.
2021 Chevy Trailblazer AWD RS Review
The very first car was a bright yellow Chevrolet Chevette. Not sure about the year, but I distinctly remember its nic name — and it was pretty so that I wouldn’t mention it! My second car and the one I’m most proud of was a 1978 Metalic Brown Chevrolet Camaro that my parents helped me buy after graduating from high school. I still remember those monthly payments — $109.56 for four years.
Since then, I went on to own a Camry, Equinox, and a Yukon. Nowadays, I’m leasing my vehicles and started with a Tahoe, then a Traverse. I may know a thing or two about Chevy. Or at least, I know they are a family-oriented car company.
Below are a few things I really love about driving this Chevy Trailblazer.
1. 2021 Chevy Trailblazer Fuel Economy
With 26 City and 30 Highway MPG, I saved on gas and spent more on things I wanted from the shops in Georgetown. The 2021 Chevy Trailblazer is great for driving long road trips. If you’ve ever driven on a long road trip, you know that stopping as little as possible is ideal, so great gas mileage is a must.
Oh, and the color red has been my favorite color since I was young, yet I’ve never owned or leased a red car. When I drove this Chevy Trailblazer to our weekend getaway, all I could think about was my childhood days and this awesome ride. Not for the color, well maybe, but for the smooth ride, the safeness I felt, and the fact that my boy was happy in the back seat the whole way there.

2. Keyless Entry
The keyless open and start feature is one part of a vehicle I need and can’t live without. If you’ve ever had that feature, you’ll never go back. You can start the car on hot or cold days to get it nice and comfortable before you step in. You’ve got ten minutes to do so. Not to mention when your hands are full, how this feature can have the car door opened, ready to load it up.
3. The Perfect 5-Passenger Seating and Storage
The 2021 Trailblazer is the perfect size for small families. There’s plenty of comfortable sitting room for five and room in the back for luggage and whatever you might pick up along the way. Even better if your family are light packers.
4. Inside The Car
Nice compact cars come with everything close to you, and that includes the front seat amenities. The interior is jet black with red accents with leather seats – stylish if you ask me.
5. Dual-Pane Sunroof
This is the panoramic view inside the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer. Isn’t it wonderful for the whole family to enjoy the view outside? I think so. We both agree that the dual-pane sunroof was one of the vehicle’s best features and will be a must-have in my next car, whether I buy or lease. It made our road trip much more enjoyable.
6. Kid-Approved Technology
Playing games and such is important on road trips – long or not. There’s not much playing on electronics when we arrive at our destination, but actually, driving in the car is wide-opened. While we talk, laugh, and play car games, we also need our own time while driving. It makes the drive much more comfortable for both of us. So, having a plug for his Nintendo Switch was a life-saver. My current vehicle does not have it. Not only was I happy, but my kid was super duper happy.
This 2021 Chevy Trailblazer that I drove for the weekend was top of the line at over $32,000. You decide what you want and don’t want, but so that you know, that dual sunroof is the bomb and is lovely to have on road trips. See for yourself.
