By Paul Lienert / Special to The Detroit News
General Motors Corp.'s Chevrolet division plans to expand its high-performance SS stable in model year 2006 with the addition of the TrailBlazer SS.
The hot-rod Chevy SUV will be slotted above the high-output Saturn Vue Red Line in size and price.
The TrailBlazer SS originally was displayed as a concept at the Specialty Equipment Market Association trade show for custom and performance parts makers.
The production version of the TrailBlazer SS reportedly will share its 6.0-liter V-8 engine with the retro-look SSR convertible pickup, rated at around 385 horsepower.
Also, it will sport a lower suspension with larger wheels and tires, as well as aerodynamic add-ons.
