Pros: Side compartments
Cons: No running boards.
Advice: Drive it, you will love it, then buy it.Drives very solid. More like a Tahoe than a Silverado. Enough power to get you where you need to go, and extremly comfortable.
Pros: New 5.3 liter V8 and drive train is excellent!
Cons: Smaller fuel tank
Advice: Compare then buy the TahoePlenty of V8 power. Very smooth and controlable. The steering provides quick response with an extremely stable feel. Suspension wise, firm and comfortable designed more for road cruising than offroad driving. I'm really impressed with the comfort and options on this vehicle. It's not just a truck anymore! If you need an offroad mud-bogger do yourself a favor and spend less on a used pickup truck!
Pros: dual zone heating/cooling controls in front seat
Cons: Not much but a coin holder would be a nice addition.
Advice: Shop around for best price and options package. These cars seem to be selling well thus discounts are not as easy to come by as on some other models.For an SUV provides a very comfortable and smooth ride. Better then the Explorer which I previously drove. Very roomy with excellent pick up and handling.
Pros: Digital Controls
Cons: Horn Sound
Advice: Buy Buy BuyOn my test drive i took it to the nearby drag strip. this car can get up to the 175 +mph in about 15 seconds. my personal views on this car- Performance- Top Speed easily reached and kept Comfort- this car isnt meant for people that are over 6 ft 6 Potential Buyers- nice car but the black interior is easily dirtied. also if you attempt to customize the rims DONT it will throw off the cars settings. becuz the car has a 1 inch difference between front and rear. this care will be practically useless oncee customed rims are put on. but once the rims are put on you can get the car re set up for that size. Speed- fast accel and great top speed Closing Statements- this car is great and everything is great about it
Pros: OnStar and the Memory Features
Cons: Small Gas Tank
Advice: Buy this very cool SUV! You will LOVE it!!I am enjoying my TrailBlazer SO much. From the tight turing radius to the memory center to the automatic lights and windshield wipers...I could go on and on. It has great pick-up and I don't know how many people have stopped me to gawk at it. Some kids working at a fast food restaurant even gave me free food when I went through the drive through because I had such a 'cool car'! ha ha I LOVE MY TRAILBLAZER!!!
Pros: There are so many. If I had to pick one, I would say the automatic lights.
Cons: The only negative I found is the Gas Mileage
Advice: This is a great vehicale. You will love it.I was amazed to see how much it felt like driving a car. I basically do not like driving but this vehicle is absolutely FUN to drive.
Pros: Flexibility - it is a truck , it is an SUV, it drives on the highway like a Suburban
Advice: Just be interested in a big vehicle - same size as a SuburbanI bought one. GM is kicking Ford's b----. If you are serious about off roading, camping and driving in snow - this is the truck for you.
