  • I tested a 2021 Chevy Trailblazer, with all-wheel-drive in the well-optioned Activ trim.
  • The as-tested price was $32,350, but the vehicle can be had for $19,000, base.
  • The Trailblazer borrows some snazzy design cues from the larger Chevy Blazer. These set it apart from the competition, which includes compact crossovers from Kia, Mazda, and Honda.
  • The Trailblazer has two engine and transmission options. My tester had a 155-horsepower, turbocharged, three-cylinder powerplant that offered nice punch at lower speeds, but that was slow to 60 mph and not as easy on gas as I thought it would be.
  • What sets the Trailblazer apart from the competition is a suite of technology features, ranging from infotainment to wifi connectivity to driver-assist, that are enviable in a budget package.

Now, it looks like Chevy has instead opted to fiddle with standard equipment and roll out a healthy assortment of new features for its bread-and-butter pickup.

Chevy on Monday revealed the 2021 Silverado’s new equipment list, which ranges from upgraded towing and payload ratings to new technology onboard the truck. Highlighting the changes are improved towing capacities for the 2.7-liter turbo-four and 3.0-liter Duramax turbodiesel engines. Those who opt for the four-cylinder Silverado in crew cab configuration will now have the ability to tow 9,300 pounds, up by 2,500 pounds, and a new regular cab model with a long bed will tow 9,600
