Chevy Trailblazer SS - LS2 powered!


The Trailblazer SS is no surprise; powered by a 391 hp/395 lb-ft of torque version of the LS2 6.0-liter V-8, it can be ordered with rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Chevy is estimating the 0-60 time at 5.7 seconds for the Nürburgring-tuned SUV. Outside the truck gets a lowered, monochromatic look inside the colors turn to ebony and flat satin. The seats get heftier side bolsters and SS stitching. At all four corners are 20-inch polished aluminum wheels and four wheel disks (12.8-inch rotors at the front). StabiliTrak and a rear air-leveling suspension are also standard for the SS.


The SS rides 1 inch lower that its more pedestrian versions and was taken to Germany to tune the suspension. 25 percent stiffer springs and the lower center of gravity help control body roll along with larger front stabilizer bars.


An optional front brake cooling package is available.

THAT'S AWESOME!!!
I LOVE those wheels. I swear if I had one of those I would never get new wheels. I would go AWD w/ the SUV and RWD w/ a Silverado SS!

i like, my dad is a chevy guy, he has a 99 suburban 4WD.. it is like NEW

powerful and he plans on doing little things to it like i/h/e, performance chip, etc.. ok, well those arent little things but should be fun nonetheless..

as for this trailblazer, i like the power, and the styling seems pretty kool to me..

one chevy truck/suv that i would really like is the Avalanche!

my sister (again, my family is all about the chevy's) has an '03 with about a 6 inch raise, dark gray, bigger/ meatier tires... the BEST part is that all that plastic shit on the sides is COMPLETELY removed.. (thats what REALLY kills the car)

Will it walk on the Cobalt SS/SC?

Will it walk on the Cobalt SS/SC? That's the question. 0-60 is faster.

I think I would rather have that tranny in the SUV's but in the Silverado's I would rather opt for a manual.

my father and i put a 95 lt1 in his 1996 blazer awd. 300h.p.-------i have a 1996 impala ss and from a stop it is a pretty even run through like 85 then ill pulled on him up to like 105. i dont know how much more the trailblazer weighs but with 90+ more h.p. it has to be faster than my car which weighs 4300 lbs with me in it, and my car stock ran 14.8 with good hook up. if i had to guess depending on gearing the ss trailblazer is goin to have to make a low 14 sec pass.....thats my guess atleast.
