So.... here's the preproduction version .. .

Looks pretty nice and different than the Blazer.

Looks nice. Afraid my next vehicle will have to be larger than our Equinox, however. Daughter and son-in-law may be moving closer to us and three-row seating becomes a factor for all of us to be able to do things together (grandchildren and car seats)! More than a year out, but I begin researching these things early, when I have the opportunity.

I like it! First feeling I got was “Mini Cooper” - because of the roof, but it’s not gonna be *that* small, I hope.

But now there’s gonna be a Blazer AND a Trailblazer - at the same time? Isn’t that confusing?

What’s next - the Chevy Trail? LOL!

BTW: Is this going to replace the Trax - and be *that* size?

Supposed to be between the Trax and Equinox in size.

  • The new Chevrolet Trailblazer is a small crossover that sits between the Trax and the Equinox in the lineup.
  • It likely shares its platform and mechanicals with the new Buick Encore GX.
  • The Trailblazer will go on sale in early 2020, but no specs or pricing have been released.
No specs have been given, but we expect the Trailblazer to have a turbocharged four-cylinder engine with an automatic transmission as the only choice.

Front-wheel drive will be standard, with all-wheel drive as an option.

The Trailblazer will have an extensive list of standard features that includes automated emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, and lane-departure warning, while things like adaptive cruise control and a rearview camera mirror will be optional.
Chevy says the new Trailblazer will arrive at dealerships in early 2020, with pricing and full specs to be released closer to that on-sale date. We think the Trailblazer will start at around $22,000, topping out at near $30,000. With Chevy and Buick both surprise-releasing new crossovers of the same size in the same day, check back with us in a couple hours to see if GMC has released one, too.

The same here. So we are looking at the new Blazer which has a 3rd seat option like the Traverse, but not sure how accessible the 3rd seat is for kids car seats. The Trailblazer will be smaller than the Blazer.

Lots of choices now, that's for sure.
Each person is different and has different family needs.
What works for us is one smaller one and one larger one.

JayTee--Thanks for that update. I hadn't looked at the Blazer closely and didn't realize it had a third row option. If it fits car seats, that may very well be a better solution for us than a Traverse or its equivalent.

Jaytee, c&ws if the Blazer’s 3rd row seats are anything like the Acadia’s kids shouldn’t have a problem climbing back there. You wouldn’t want to take long drive with passengers back there but short drives they should be fine.

I thought of a Range Rover as far as looks, but sportier. I like it as well. We'll have to see how the job goes in the next couple years to see if I want to move over to a brand new SUV vs keep what I've got. I wonder what the Terrain will look like!?!? (it could be on the site somewhere already....I have no idea...lol)

So there must be a large class of buyers out there (lets call them descendent of Goldilocks) that look at the Trax and say ..hmm a bit to small and then try the equinox ...and say darn that is just too big.
Otherwise i do not understand the whole spectrum of SUV sizes that is being proposed.

I agree, the Encore/Trax & Envision/Equinox/Terrain sizes do seem to have a following down here in SC . Not sure how or why a size in between those two would sell.

The Encore will soldier on as its sales are still respectable but the Trax has been going downhill. I think the new Trailblazer and its GMC brother the Jimmy (my guess) when it comes out will be the replacement for the Trax. Flooding the market with CUV's will not do GM any favours as it will only serve to confuse the public.

I wish they’d tweak the Buick TourX wagon by raising it up just a little bit and putting a V6 non-turbo engine in it. Kind of like a Venza.

My guess is that the Venza has a pretty small market share, as will the buick. I don't expect to see it around for long

I saw the TourX on Buick's website, you're right it looks interesting if it was a bit larger.

The Buick, the Venza, or both?

TourX has larger warranty (than Equinox), more cargo space (than Equinox), comes with 2.0L engine, and 600 extra lbs.

You’d think there’d be some really good deals on these TourX’s at some point.

I'd bet on gm dropping the Tour-x. The Venza can fit the SUV class. Only people that want wagons are "old" smart people
IMHO. The Tour-x is a actually a German vehicle. GM should advertise that fact.
