2005 Chevrolet TrailBlazer

The Chevy TrailBlazer didn't change much outside of some minor exterior adjustments in 2005.  This domestic SUV comes in 4 trims and sports a 4.2 L, 275 hp I6 powertrain with 4 speed automatic transmission.  Think of the LS trims as your more basic trims and the LT as a little more luxurious.

Gas mileage averages out to 15 mpg in the city and 21 on the highway.  Passenger volume amounts to 113.4 cubic feet and cargo volume comes out to 43.7 cubic feet.  4WD trims tow up to 6100 lbs. and RWD trims tow up to 6300 lbs.  Finally, all 4 trims have 4 doors and seat 5.

Overall, drivers report that the 2005 Chevy TrailBlazer has a capable engine, smooth ride, and good list of features.  On the other hand, steering could use a little work and the materials could use an update.  In the end, the TrailBlazer's solid stats and performance make it a good choice for your average family on the go.
