The rear-wheel drive 2008 Chevy Trailblazer LT1 is the base model of the mid-size SUV that seats five in two rows. Standard engine is a 285-hp, 4.2-liter DOHC I6 that gets 296 lb-ft of torque and is matched to a 4-speed Hydramatic. A 5.3-liter Vortec V8 that delivers 300-hp is available as an option. With 7.8 inches of ground clearance, the 2008 Trailblazer LT1 rides on a truck suspension and 17-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires, with standard electronic brakeforce distribution, 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, traction and stability control, a tire monitor, skid plates, and dual front and side curtain airbags with passenger deactivation. Also included are dusk-sensing headlights, foglights, and daytime running lights.
The LT1 is nicely oriented to families, with full power features, cruise control, two front power outlets, and front and rear cupholders. Also standard are intermittent front and rear wipers, cruise control, OnStar, a new satellite radio, CD player, 8-way power driver's seat, remote entry, a security system, and dual-zone climate control. The rear seats split-fold 60/40, expanding the cargo bay, which features tie-downs, from 41 to 80 cubic feet. The liftgate opens independently of the rear window, and a roof rack and trailer hitch are standard. Options include a sunroof, an off-roading package with locking differential, and side step rails.

Extra off-roading power comes with the 2008 Chevrolet Trailblazer LT1 4WD, that boosts its full-time 4WD with, low-range gearing, a locking center differential, and automatic locking hubs. It also makes good use of its 17-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires and standard 4.2-liter, 285-hp DOHC I6 that delivers 276 lb-ft of torque with a 4-speed HydraMatic auto tran. A 300-hp 5.3-liter V8 with valve displacement (saves fuel economy) is available. The SUV seats five in two rows, with folding rear seats to expand the cargo room from 41 to 80 cubic feet. The cargo area comes with tie-downs, and a trailer hitch is also standard for towing around 6600 pounds. A roof rack adds more capacity. The rear window includes an intermittent wiper and opens separately from the liftgate.
New for the 2008 Trailblazer LT1 4WD are side curtain airbags. These join dual front airbags, 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, a tire monitor, traction and stability control, automatic headlights, daytime running lights, and foglights. Though the LT1 is the base, it does have an 8-way power driver's seat, full power features, remote entry, a CD player, dual-zone climate control, OnStar, and a brand new satellite radio feature. Front and rear cupholders, storage consoles, and seatback pockets are the norm now. Add-ons include an off-road package with skid plates, a sunroof, and upgraded audio system.

If you're looking for an 8-way power passenger seat to match the driver's, and memory settings for the driver's seat, the 2008 Chevrolet Trailblazer LT3 fits the bill. These features are the main distinctions between the LT2 and LT3. The rear-wheel drive, five-seater SUV sits on a truck platform (front double wishbone and rear live axle) and rides on larger 18-inch alloy wheels with all-terrain tires, which can be upgraded to 18-inch wheels. Standard 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, front and rear stabilizer bars, stability control, a tire monitor, automatic headlights, foglights, daytime running lights, auto-dimming rearview mirror, and dual front and side curtain airbags for each row earn four and five-star safety ratings, though the Trailblazer rates only a three on rollover protection.
Engine choices are a 4.2-liter, 285-hp, 276 lb-ft of torque DOHC I6 or a Vortec 5.3-liter, 300-hp V8. Both come with a 4-speed HydraMatic. Cruise control, leather seats and trim, a CD player with wheel-mounted and backseat audio controls, intermittent front and rear wipers, a remote garage opener, full power features, keyless entry, front, overhead, and floor storage consoles, three power outlets, OnStar, a trip computer, and heated mirrors are standard. In 2008, the LT3 gets XM satellite radio. On the outside, the LT3 adds running boards. A roof rack supplements the 41 cubic foot cargo area, which expands to 80 when the 60/40 rear seats fold down. Tie-downs are standard, and a cargo net and cover are extra. A standard trailer hitch can two 6600 pounds. An LT3-only option is a navigation system. Other options include a DVD player, power pedals, an off-road package with skids plates and underbody protection, a sunroof, and two-tone paint.

As with all the trims, the 2008 Chevrolet Trailblazer LT2 4WD adds XM satellite radio and side curtain airbags for both rows to its standard equipment this year. The on-demand four-wheel drive comes with low-range gearing and a locking center differential, and an optional off-road package adds skid plates and underbody shielding. Otherwise, the LT2 4WD is the same as the rear-wheel drive, with a standard 4.2-liter, 285-hp DOHC I6 or optional 5.3-liter, 300-hp V8 and standard 4-speed automatic. One of the few SUVs left built on a truck platform (a double wishbone front and rear live axle suspension), the 2008 Trailblazer LT2 4WD rides on 17-inch alloy wheels with all-terrain tires and features stability control, a tire monitor, 4-wheel ABS brakes, automatic headlights, foglights, and dual front and side curtain airbags. The LT2 comes with an auto-dimming rearview mirror, unlike the LT1.
Added features with the LT2 4WD include leather seats and trim, a trip computer with wheel-mounted controls, dual-zone climate control, wheel-mounted and backseat audio controls for the CD player, and a compass. There is also an 8-way power driver's seat, three power outlets (two in front, one in back), intermittent front and rear wipers, a remote garage opener, keyless entry, a security system, and OnStar. The 41-80 cubic foot cargo area comes with tie-downs, and a cargo net and cover can be added. A roof rack is standard, as is a trailer hitch if you need to two up to 6600 pounds. On the 2008 Trailblazer LT2 4WD, you can also add a DVD player. Other extras include a sunroof, upgraded audio system, side step rails, larger 18-inch wheels, a power passenger seat, and power adjustable pedals.

Stuffing a Corvette LS2 engine inside the 2008 Chevrolet Trailblazer SS1 turns the five-seater, rear-wheel drive SUV into a sort of street racer. The 6.0-liter V8 delivers 390-hp and 395 lb-ft of torque and is mated to a 4-speed HydraMatic transmission, for 0-60 times around six seconds. A sports suspension sits lower than the LT trims, and the SS1 comes with a limited slip rear differential, stronger brakes and shocks, bigger front and rear stabilizer bars, and a self-leveling suspension. Steering response is also quicker. The double-wishbone front and rear live axle suspension maintain a truck-like feel, and you'll get noticeably more body roll than with a sports car. Larger 20-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires grip the road. Standard safety features include ABS brakes, stability control, tire monitor, automatic headlights, foglights, daytime running lights, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. In 2008, side curtain airbags join the dual front ones.
Inside, you'll get an 8-way power driver's seat, full power features, keyless entry, a trip computer, security system, CD player with wheel-mounted controls, dual-zone climate control, a remote garage opener, cruise control, heated mirrors, a temperature display and compass, and four power outlets (two in front, one in back, one in the cargo area. New in 2008 is XM radio. With the 6.0 V8, the 2008 Trailblazer SS1 can tow up to 6800 pounds with a standard trailer hitch. The cargo area holds anywhere from 41-80 cubic feet, and a roof rack adds more versatility. The SS1 also has a sportier exterior, with a mesh grille, body-colored bumpers, front and rear air dams, and special badging. A sunroof, tow hooks, smaller 17-inch wheels, and an off-road package with skid plates are available.

On-demand four-wheel drive with automatic locking hubs and a locking center differential beef up driving performance in the 2008 Chevrolet Trailblazer LT3 4WD, and the larger 18-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires keep the mid-size SUV firmly on the road. Powered by either a 4.2-liter, 285-hp I6 with 276 lb-ft of torque or a 5.3-liter, 300-hp V8, both mated to a 4-speed HydraMatic, the 2008 Trailblazer LT3 4WD features 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, dual front-side and side curtain airbags for both rows, front and rear stabilizer bars, stability control, rollover protection, automatic headlights, foglights, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. It earns four and five stars in crash tests, except for driver impact, which gets three stars.
8-way power front seats with driver's memory are upgrades on the LT3. These join the full power features, cruise control, heated mirrors, wheel-mounted audio controls for the CD player, a trip computer, keyless entry, remote garage opener, intermittent front and rear wipers, compass and temperature display, and new XM satellite radio. On the outside, a roof rack, trailer hitch, and running boards are standard. The rear seats split-fold 60/40, opening up the 41 cubic foot cargo area to 80 cubic feet. Towing capacity maxes at 6600 pounds with the 2008 Trailblazer LT3 4WD. An off-road package adds skid plates and underbody protection. Other options include a cargo net and cover, a sunroof, and navigation system.

Full-time all-wheel drive with low-range gearing and a limited slip Torsen center and rear differential, combined with a monster 6.0-liter, 390-hp V8, makes this five-seater SUV a powerful contender on and off the road. The AWD system can be combined with an off-road package that adds skid plates and underbody protection. Sportier performance is provided by a stiffer and lower suspension, stronger brakes and shocks, larger stabilizer bars, a self-leveling suspension, and 20-inch wheels with all-season tires. The 2008 Trailblazer SS1 AWD gets four and five-start front and side impact ratings, thanks to dual front airbags and new side curtain airbags for both rows, StabiliTrac, 4-wheel ABS brakes, a tire monitor, rollover protection, automatic headlights, foglights, daytime running lights, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Driver's impact and rollover test garner average 3-star ratings.
The extra weight from the AWD means the SUV can only two 6600 pounds with a standard trailer hitch and optional tow hooks. A roof rack and running boards are also standard, as are a sportier exterior (body-colored molding, mesh grille, badging). Interior highlights include an 8-way power driver's seat, cruise control, wheel-mounted audio controls, rear audio and climate control, a CD player, intermittent front and rear wipers, five power outlets, keyless entry, full power features, heated mirrors, a security system, trip computer, and temperature and compass display. Storage compartments are found overhead, in the front, and on the floor. Tie-downs are featured in the 41 cubic foot cargo area that expands to 80 with the rear seats folded. A cargo cover and net are optional. New this year is XM radio. Options include a sunroof, 17-inch wheels, a 6-CD changer, and upgraded audio system.

Equipped with a self-leveling sports suspension, stronger brakes, stabilizer bars, and shocks, 20-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires, and a 6.0-liter V8 and 4-speed HydraMatic that deliver 390-hp and 395 lb-ft of torque, the 2008 Chevrolet TrailBlazer SS3 hits 0-60 in six seconds. It's also an SUV that seats five, carries up to 80 cubic feet of cargo (more with the standard roof rack), and can tow up to 6800 pounds with its included trailer hitch. The sporty rear-wheel drive SUV also features 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, a truck platform, tire monitor, rollover protection, dual front-side and two-row side curtain airbags, StabiliTrac, automatic headlights, foglights, and auto-dimming rearview mirror. The SS3 includes turn signals in the power mirrors. Safety ratings range from three for the driver to five for passengers.
2008 Trailblazer SS3-only features include leather upholstery and 8-way power front seats with driver's side memory settings. This luxury and convenience adds to the full power features, heated mirrors, cruise control, wheel-mounted trip computer and audio controls, temperature and compass, rear controls for climate and audio, a CD player, OnStar, keyless entry, and a garage opener. XM satellite is a new feature this year. Rear seats split-fold 60/40, and the rear liftgate opens independently of the window. Intermittent front and rear wipers are standard. Running boards are also standard, and the 2008 Trailblazer SS3 comes with body-colored bumpers, special badging, and a mesh grille. On the SS3, you can add a navigation system, along with a sunroof, cargo cover and net, DVD player, and 6-CD changer.

All-wheel drive with low-range gearing that can be engaged on both dry and wet roads sets the 2008 Chevrolet Trailblazer SS3 4WD apart from its rear-wheel sibling. A Torsen limited slip center and rear differential also accompanies the full-time, selectable system in this performance SUV. The performance comes from a 390-hp, 6.0-liter V8 and 4-speed HydraMatic, and is helped by a self-leveling sports suspension, stronger brakes and shocks, bigger front and rear stabilizer bars, and 20-inch wheels with all-season tires. 17-inch wheels can be substituted. Standard safety equipment includes 4-wheel ABS brakes, StabiliTrac, a tire monitor, rollover protection, dual front-side and side curtain airbags, foglights, automatic headlights, and mirrors with turn signals. The 2008 Trailblazer SS3 4WD gets around 14/19 mpg at best.
Besides its 0-60 in six seconds performance, the SUV is a good family car, seating five comfortably, with fold-down rear seats that expand the cargo area from 41 to 80 cubic feet. Tie-downs are included, and a cover and net are optional. A standard roof rack and trailer hitch add more storage capacity. Five power outlets, plenty of storage compartments, and backseat audio and climate control are other family-oriented features. The SS3 upgrades from the SS1 with leather seats, 8-way power front seats, and memory settings. It also comes with a CD player, wheel-mounted audio and trip computer controls, cruise control, intermittent front and rear wipers, keyless entry, a garage remote, security system, and new XM satellite radio. Options add a DVD player, navigation system, and sunroof.
