Trail Blazing Chevrolet
It was Chevrolet that was amongst the trail blazers in the design and manufacture of the Sports Utility Vehicle, and Chevrolet have now come out with the Trail Blazer that begs the question, What’s in a name? ell after a very short period of time behind the wheel of the Chevrolet Trailblazer, I had formulated a healthy respect for it. I was driving the 2.5 litre Duramax Diesel version of this brute and was loving the 350 Newton meters of torque that this 4 cylinder, 16 valve, tried-and-tested turbo diesel engine, was producing. The Chevrolet Trailblazer is also available as a 2.8 Duramax diesel derivative, or the muscular 3.6 litre V6 176 kilowatt, 24-valve, quad-cam, petrol engine. Ive heard it said that the Trailblazer now holds the title of Best Tow Vehicle in its class. A massive 2950kgs towing capability is nothing to be sneered at, I didnt doubt the Trailblazer for a moment, the powerful thrust I got from the Duramax engine put all doubt from my mind, and the smooth gear shift, manual or automatic added to the confident, powerful Chevrolet experience that we have all come to know and love in the brand.
Handling is where some SUVs fall short, however the Chevrolet Trailblazer does not! The gutsy powerful Chevy experience is right there under the accelerator. Sharp braking and a speedy traction control system made the Trailblazer fun to drive. The extensive list of features goes on and on and even includes PBA, Panic Brake Assist. They have thought of everything, so you dont need to think, just buy one.
