The Trailblazer is a brand-new SUV from Chevy, slotted between the Blazer and Tahoe. Faced with formidable competition from the Ford Explorer, Jeep Grand Cherokee, and Dodge Durango, Chevrolet met them head-on. The new, larger, Trailblazer offers an all-new 4.2L DOHC inline-six with 270-bhp/275 lb.-ft. Dual front and side airbags improve occupant protection. A 5-link rear suspension provides better axle control. An all-new stiffer chassis offers better ride and handling. Wind noise has been reduced to carlike levels due to improved body sealing. The new Trailblazer is truly a leap forward for Chevy, as it seeks to become a leader in the midsize SUV market.
The TrailBlazer will round out one of the most expansive SUV lineups in the industry. With Suburban, Tahoe, Blazer and Tracker, Chevrolet will be able to offer an SUV to fit the needs of any consumer.
