When you think of the best Chevrolet engines, you probably think of huge motors, like the DURAMAX® turbodiesel on the Silverado. You probably don’t think of the smallest engines in the Chevy lineup, like the ECOTEC 1.3-liter turbo three-cylinder engine on the Trailblazer — but WardsAuto does.
In fact, WardsAuto was so impressed by this little three-cylinder motor available on the 2021 Trailblazer that it deemed it one of the 1 0 Best Engines & Propulsion Systems on the market.
What makes the Chevy Trailblazer engine so exceptional?
Although it only produces 155 horsepower, that’s a tremendous amount of power to milk from only 1.3 liters. That horsepower-per-liter rate is even better than the 6.2-liter V8 on the Corvette Stingray. This efficiency is due to components like an active thermal management system, a variable-flow oil pump, and a deep-skirt cylinder block. When you look at the Trailblazer’s engine in that regard, it’s quite impressive!
In addition to its efficient power production, the engine was also proved to be quiet and responsive — both positives for drivers in Spirit Lake who don’t want to drive a loud SUV.
