Chevrolet has revived its Trailblazer nameplate for a 2021-model-year small crossover that will retail for under $20,000, which will be cheaper, and longer, than the Trax subcompact SUV, Chevrolet announced ahead of the Los Angeles Auto Show.

The 2021 Trailblazer will offer a pair of turbocharged three-cylinder engines. The base 1.2-liter engine will make 137 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque, while a 1.3-liter engine will make 155 hp and 174 lb.-ft.

Chevrolet is pairing a continuously variable transmission with the front-wheel-drive base model. The 1.3-liter model offers a nine-speed transmission and optional all-wheel drive.

The Activ and RS trim levels provide slightly different appearance packaging, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will be optional.

The 2021 Trailblazer will go on sale in the spring.
