If you’re researching the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer as a potential new SUV for your adventurous life in Sarasota, you’re probably already familiar with its go-anywhere agility and spacious interior. The Chevy Trailblazer engine creates a fun driving experience on-road and off, but is it capable of towing? Paired with the right equipment, the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer towing capacity reaches 1,000 pounds. In the guide below, Cox Chevrolet looks at the required components and packages to make your new Trailblazer towing-ready.

Equipment Needed for the Chevy Trailblazer Towing Capacity

A 1,000-pound towing capacity is enough to tow a lightweight teardrop camper or an ATV for a thrilling adventure far outside of Tampa. If you want to reach this maximum Chevy Trailblazer towing capacity, you need the ECOTEC 1.3L Turbo engine and the Trailering Equipment Package. However, this pairing is only available with the following trim level and drivetrain configurations:
