2021 Chevy Trailblazer subcompact crossover fuel economy partly revealed

Gasoline financial state quantities for the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer subcompact crossover have appeared. Curiously, only quantities for the leading-spec all-wheel-travel design with the turbocharged 1.three-liter three-cylinder have demonstrated up on the official EPA internet site. In town, that Trailblazer gets 26 mpg, and on the highway it gets 30 mpg. The blended quantity is 28 mpg.

We suspect that this is the worst accomplishing edition of the Trailblazer. It really is the most potent at one hundred fifty five horsepower and a hundred seventy five pound-feet of torque, and all-wheel travel generally lowers gas financial state, even when it truly is made very successful. The entrance-travel edition of the 1.three-liter Trailblazer and the edition with the 1.two-liter turbocharged three-cylinder making just 137 horsepower and 166 pound-feet of torque will probably get greater mileage.

This Trailblazer variant is competitive with comparable all-wheel-travel subcompact crossovers. The Ford EcoSport, turbocharged Jeep Renegade and turbocharged Hyundai Kona, all with all-wheel travel, have reduce blended gas financial state at twenty five, 26 and 27 mpg respectively. Marginally greater are the all-wheel-travel-equipped Honda HR-V and Mazda CX-three with 29 mpg blended, and the CVT-equipped Subaru Crosstrek manages 30 mpg blended. All three are less potent, even though.
