Chevrolet TrailBlazer is powerful, rugged and capable, yet smooth, comfortable and civilized. Its rigid chassis, sophisticated suspension, powerful brakes and impressive details place it among the best of the mid-size SUVs. It's stable and comfortable and offers a smooth ride. It handles rough washboard surfaces well and is capable off road, offering a sophisticated four-wheel-drive system and skid plates. TrailBlazer is powered by a superb six-cylinder engine. An extended-wheelbase model called the TrailBlazer EXT offers tree rows, seating up to seven people. It comes standard, but a V8 is available as an option. The EXT needs the V8 due to its heavier weight. Due to its much longer length, the EXT lacks the handling and stability that make the standard TrailBlazer great. Equipped with the V8, a Trailblazer EXT 2WD model can tow up to 7,100 pounds. New options for 2004 include adjustable pedals, XM satellite radio, and navigation radio.
