The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has awarded the 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer with its highest honor, the Top Safety Pick+ award. The Top Safety Pick+ category indicates vehicles that perform exceptionally well in crash tests and have high-level crash avoidance technologies.
The prestigious Top Safety Pick+ award is hard to come by. To be a Top Safety Pick, a vehicle has to get high ratings in six different crash tests. Crash prevention tech is what earns the Plus.
The Trailblazer earned a score of “Good,” the highest possible score, on all its crash tests, as well as a top Superior score for its vehicle-to-vehicle crash prevention. The Trailblazer even had to earn a high rating for its headlights.
Part of what helped earn the Trailblazer the Top Safety Pick+ award is its standard Chevy Safety Assist package. Chevy Safety Assist is a suite of six driver assist technologies. These included Forward Collision Alert with Automatic Emergency Braking as well as Front Pedestrian Braking, both of which were tested by the IIHS.
Chevy Safety Assist also comes with Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, which helps drivers avoid drifting into other lanes. Intellibeam High Beam Assist is also standard on the 2022 Trailblazer and toggles the high beam headlights on and off depending on current traffic.
