The 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer is a subcompact SUV with angular, sporty style, exciting performance, and big capabilities. Equipped with tons of smart tech and plenty of cargo space, this agile little SUV is perfect for hitting the trails or driving in the city.
You might not expect it to be one of the safest vehicles on the road, too. But, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, one of the leading experts in vehicle safety in the U.S., has named the 2022 Trailblazer a Top Safety Pick+.
The Top Safety Pick+ designation is reserved for vehicles who meet a range of crash test criteria. The IIHS tests crashworthiness in six categories, and a vehicle has to receive the top “Good” rating in all six. The headlights also get a rating and need at least an “Acceptable” score.
Finally, to earn the Plus rating, the IIHS tests the vehicle’s available front crash prevention technology. This category has to have at least an “Advanced” rating, with “Superior” being the highest.
The Trailblazer earned a “Good” rating for its headlights depending on the trim level and a “Superior” rating for its vehicle-to-vehicle crash prevention tech. In fact, the Trailblazer comes standard with Chevy Safety Assist, so its Forward Collision Alert with Automatic Emergency Braking feature and Front Pedestrian Braking are both standard.
Winter can be rough on your car’s battery, and it’s not the best time of year to be stranded with a car that won’t start. If you notice the following signs, you most likely need a new car battery. Head to Wilson Chevrolet ASAP to have your battery tested and replaced.
If it takes longer than it used to for the engine to turn over, it may be time to replace your battery. This is a sign that the parts of your battery are starting to degrade, and you might be dealing with a dead battery soon.
Keep an eye on the battery terminals and look for signs of corrosion. Battery acid can leak from the inside of the battery and cause the connectors to corrode, which interferes with the battery’s ability to send power to the engine.
Swollen battery case
High heat can make the case of the battery swell, so check to see if your battery case looks misshapen or swollen. If your battery case is damaged, it’s definitely time to have the battery replaced.
You should replace your car battery about every three to five years, depending on how often you drive and what kind of vehicle you have. Check your owner’s manual to see what the manufacturer recommends, and if your battery is more than three years old, consider having it tested.

All-wheel drive is an incredibly handy and desirable feature for a family SUV. AWD improves traction on wet or snowy roads, makes it easier to drive off-road, and helps you drive with extra confidence. If you’re looking for the best AWD SUV you can buy, U.S. News & World Report recently ranked the Chevrolet Traverse as one of the industry’s top choices.
The Traverse features prominently on the U.S. News list of the 12 Best All-Wheel-Drive SUVs in 2021. For the 2022 model year, every Traverse trim level is available with AWD. Whether you’re interested in the entry-level LS, the sporty RS, or the upscale High Country, you don’t have to compromise what you want to get an AWD model.
The Traverse’s AWD system sends power to all four wheels as needed to improve your grip on the road. Thanks to the Driver Mode Selector, you can switch to FWD to improve your fuel efficiency when AWD isn’t needed. You can also dial up settings like Snow, Off-Road, and Tow/Haul to optimize performance.
In addition to AWD, the Traverse boasts plenty of other high-value capabilities and features. These include three rows and seating for up to eight, 98.2 cubic feet of max cargo space, a mighty 310-horsepower V8 engine, and six standard Chevy Safety Assist technologies.
To try out the Traverse and its AWD system for yourself, stop in for a test drive here at Wilson GM in Stillwater, Oklahoma.
