2009 Chevrolet TrailBlazer Trims

LT1

Avg. Price: $13,460

The 2009 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LT1 is the base entry in Chevy’s eight-year foray into the midsize SUV market. The rear-wheel-drive, five-passenger, five-door TrailBlazer LT1 offers 80 cubic feet of cargo space (with the rear seats folded), and comes equipped with standard 17-inch alloy wheels, a roof rack, front cloth bucket seats with an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, split-folding rear seats, power windows, door locks, and mirrors, cruise control, dual-zone air conditioning, tilt-wheel steering, a front console with storage, single-CD player with six speakers, Sirius/XM satellite radio, and Chevy’s OnStar hands-free communications with Bluetooth technology. Options for the ’09 TrailBlazer LT1, meanwhile, include a power sunroof, Bose premium speakers, and on/off-road tires, while standard safety features include four-wheel ABS, traction and stability control, front and rear head airbags, a remote anti-theft alarm, front fog/driving lights, and the OnStar post-collision safety system.

The ’09 Chevy TrailBlazer LT1 packs a standard 4.2-liter inline six-cylinder (I6) engine and four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. This team puts out 285 hp and 276 lb-ft of torque, enough to tow 5,900 pounds of trailer with the standard tow hitch. The EPA rates the ’09 TrailBlazer LT1 at 15/21 mpg.

LT1 4WD

Avg. Price: $14,324

Equipped and optioned identically to the rear-wheel-drive (RWD) LT1, the 2009 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LT1 4WD, as its moniker implies, offers the additional safety and traction of on-demand four-wheel drive (4WD). When confronted with severe weather or less-than-ideal road conditions, the ’09 TrailBlazer LT1 4WD’s shift-on-the-fly 4WD system features auto-locking hubs, a mechanical center differential, and electronic hi-lo gear selection that will get this midsize, five-passenger, five-door SUV through it all in style and comfort.

Again, as with its rear-wheel-drive sibling, the ’09 Chevy TrailBlazer LT1 4WD is powered by a standard 285-hp, 276-lb-ft/torque 4.2-liter inline six-cylinder (I6) engine and four-speed automatic with overdrive. As is usual with 4WD-configured SUVs, the ’09 TrailBlazer LT1 4WD tows some 200 fewer pounds than the RWD LT1, and is marginally less fuel efficient at 14/20 mpg.

LT2

Chevy’s lower-midlevel, rear-wheel-drive 2009 TrailBlazer LT2 midsize SUV offers five doors, seating for five passengers, and 80 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded down. Additional standard exterior and interior features over those of its LT1 compatriot include all-terrain tires, remote keyless entry, available power-adjustable pedals, a 3.73 rear axle ratio, and an available Cargo Convenience Package.

Packing a standard 4.2-liter inline six-cylinder (I6) engine and four-speed automatic transmission, the ’09 Chevy TrailBlazer LT2 generates 285 hp and 276 lb-ft of torque. This power translates into 5,900 pounds of towing capacity and 15/21 mpg.

LT2 4WD

Avg. Price: $14,365

In addition to all the standard and optional goodies available with its rear-wheel-drive LT2 sibling, the 2009 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LT2 4WD comes equipped with shift-on-the-fly four-wheel drive (4WD), featuring auto-locking hubs and electronic hi-lo gear selection.

The five-passenger, five-door ’09 Chevy TrailBlazer LT2 4WD, of course, offers the same 80 cubic feet of cargo space (with the rear seats folded) and 285-hp, 276-lb-ft/torque 4.2-liter inline six (I6) with four-speed automatic as the rear-wheel-drive LT2. Mileage for the ’09 TrailBlazer LT2 4WD is estimated at 14/20 mpg, with trailering capacity brought down to 5,700 pounds.

LT3

Avg. Price: $14,049

The rear-wheel-drive 2009 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LT3 is the higher mid-level trim in the TrailBlazer midsize SUV lineup. Featuring such additional standard equipment as 18-inch alloy wheels, an eight-way power-adjustable passenger seat, multi-level-heated front seats, heated outside mirrors, a leather-wrapped steering wheel mounting audio controls, universal garage door opener, and memory settings for the driver’s seat, steering wheel, and mirror, the ’09 TrailBlazer LT3 justifies its higher trim status. Additional options for the ’09 TrailBlazer LT3 include DVD navigation, a 6-CD changer, and rear-seat DVD entertainment.

Chevy’s ’09 TrailBlazer LT3 packs the same 4.2-liter inline six-cylinder (I6) engine and standard four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive as does its LT1 and LT2 brethren. This combo will deliver 285 hp and 276 lb-ft of torque to the tune of 15/21 mpg. The ’09 TrailBlazer LT3 is also equipped with a standard trailer hitch, and those horses will tow some 5,900 pounds.

LT3 4WD

Avg. Price: $12,941

On-demand, shift-on-the-fly four-wheel drive (4WD) is what motivates the 2009 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LT3 4WD, with a little help from its standard 4.2-liter inline six-cylinder (I6) engine and four-speed automatic transmission. This drivetrain combo synchronizes with the center locking differential, auto-locking hubs, and electronic hi-lo gear selection of the 4WD unit to provide the ’09 TrailBlazer LT3 4WD with go-anywhere/go-anytime traction at 14/20 mpg.

Standard and optional safety, appearance, comfort, and convenience features with the ’09 Chevy TrailBlazer LT3 4WD mirror those of the rear-wheel-drive LT3. Four-wheel ABS, traction and stability control, front and rear head airbags, dual-zone climate control, cruise control, a single-CD player, power sunroof, Bose premium speakers, leather trim, rear-seat DVD entertainment, and, of course, 80 cubic feet of cargo space are among the numerous goodies pampering and securing driver and passengers in the ’09 TrailBlazer LT3 4WD.

SS

3 national listings
Avg. Price: $18,057

The top-shelf trim level in the TrailBlazer lineup, the 2009 Chevrolet TrailBlazer SS five-door, five-passenger midsize SUV ups its lineup's standards with such offerings as 20-inch polished alloy wheels, a self-leveling suspension system, premium leather upholstery and cabin trim, front power lumbar supports, and a rear limited-slip differential. Options for the ’09 TrailBlazer SS mirror those for the LT3 trim level.

Standard power is also boosted for the rear-wheel drive ‘09 Chevy TrailBlazer SS, which features a 6.0-liter OHV V8 engine and four-speed automatic. This pairing will pound out 390 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque, potent enough to haul 6,800 pounds of trailer with the standard towing hitch. Obviously, that’s a lot of horses to feed, thus fuel economy in the ’09 TrailBlazer SS drops to 12/16 mpg.

SS 4WD

Avg. Price: $24,646

Equipped identically to its rear-wheel-drive sibling, the 2009 Chevrolet TrailBlazer SS 4WD offers, in addition, on-demand, shift-on-the-fly four-wheel drive with auto-locking hubs and electronic hi-lo gear selection. Combined with such standard features as 20-inch polished alloy wheels, premium leather seats, a load-leveling suspension, and a rear limited-slip differential, the ’09 TrailBlazer SS 4WD midsize SUV gets five people through mud and snow safely, stylishly, and comfortably.

To power through heavy weather, as well as to haul heavy loads, the ’09 Chevy TrailBlazer SS 4WD packs a standard 390-hp, 400-lb-ft/torque 6.0-liter V8 engine and four-speed automatic transmission. Though capable of towing 6,600 pounds, the ’09 TrailBlazer SS 4WD isn’t exactly wallet-friendly at 12/16 mpg.
