I personally enjoyed the ride and could not find a better way to write the experience so I am sharing hubby’s actual post via his Facebook wall as he is well-articulated with the industry jargons.
I drove a Chevrolet Trailblazer LTX last week, and what a joy driving it. The SUV is powered by a 2.8-litre engine, 4-cylinder, 16 Valve DOHC Duramax engine with a maximum torque of 500 (Nm @ 2,000rpm), yes, the most powerful in its class.
The transmission is so responsive, thanks to the 6-speed Automatic transmission with active select. I love the idea that when I tried to overtake, it gave such adrenaline with so much ease!
Trailblazer’s 4×2 diesel SUV is a WOW. It was a surprise how the engine, working hand in hand with the transmission, delivers the power that a driver needs (thanks to the VGT with intercooler). You can traverse from city to the highway with no worries at all. The vehicle is also equipped with HD Dashcam 1080i resolution with tire pressure monitor. Trailblazer can be as stealth as a sniper but as fast as Clint Barter’s arrow at the same time.
So here is what my fambam says about the Trailblazer.
The Chevrolet Trailblazer gives a car-like comfort that my wife loves. You gotta give credit to the Independent Short Long Arms and 5-link with coil springs front and rear suspensions. She appreciates the Android Infotainment System with Mobile Connect—smartphone inter-connectivity with iOS or Android (yes, we are a geeky family too). Just few press of a button, what you see on the smart mobile phones are on the radio screen. From reading your messages while on stop (safety first guys), and answering your calls hands-free.
My 6-year-old son who is in charge of entertainment inside the car enjoys the sound system! He also likes the big windows—he can clearly see the outside clutter-free while seated at the back with his booster seats. The center arm rest is also a plus for him because he finds it really easy to get drinks.
In our opinion, this Chevrolet Trailblazer LTX 4×2 fits perfectly given our road condition. It is high to tackle flooded roads, yet comfortable to ride for long haul trips. It is the most spacious third-row seat if you ask me.
The only disadvantage for me with this SUV is–I do not own one.
WARNING: DO NOT FLOOR THE FUEL PEDAL. THAT IS WHERE THE FUN STARTS.
