Pros

Powerful standard inline-6 engine; available 390-horsepower V8 engine.


Model Highlights

The 2009 Chevrolet TrailBlazer provides something for everyone. All trim levels provide a comfortable ride for five passengers, good towing capability and ample cargo space.

There are two trim levels available: LT and the SS. The LT trims come standard with a 4.2L inline 6-cylinder engine that produces a healthy 285 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 276 ft-lbs of torque at 4600 rpm. The optional 5.3L V8 engine makes 300 horsepower at 5300 rpm and 321 ft-lbs of torque at 4000 rpm. The 5.3L V8 sports the impressive active fuel management feature that deactivates four of the eight cylinders and propels the vehicle on just four cylinders in situations where extra power is not needed. The transition from eight to four cylinders and back is virtually undetectable and helps boost fuel economy.

Standard equipment includes 17-inch alloy wheels, 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, power windows and locks, OnStar, cruise control, air conditioning, a CD player with XM satellite radio and StabiliTrak stability control system.

The LT trim adds features such as a roof rack, fog lamps, power mirrors, power front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls and automatic dual-zone climate control.

For those wanting a sportier SUV, the TrailBlazer offers its SS trim level in either 2-wheel drive or all-wheel drive versions. The SS TrailBlazer includes a sport-tuned suspension, 20-inch alloy wheels, heavy duty front disc brakes, a limited-slip rear differential, quicker ratio steering, and the Corvette-based LS2 6.0L V8 engine, as well as other changes. These enhancements create an aggressive look outside and some serious acceleration with sub-six-second 0-60 mph times. Power reaches 390 horsepower 6000 rpm and 400 ft-lbs of torque at 4000 rpm.

Notable options on all trim levels include a rear seat DVD entertainment system, Bose premium speaker system and power sunroof.

Standard with both the LT and LS are front and passenger airbags along with head curtain side impact air bags.

At less than $30,000 the 2-wheel drive LS offers impressive standard equipment for the price. A loaded 4-wheel drive LT V8 TrailBlazer can push just past the $36,000 mark.

The 2009 Chevrolet TrailBlazer offers a 5-year/100,000 mile powertrain limited warranty along with 5-year/100,000 mile roadside assistance and 5-year/100,000 mile Courtesy Transportation Program.


Model News

For 2009, the Chevy TrailBlazer carries over largely unchanged. It does receive newly available Bluetooth connectivity and a few new paint colors.


Value Writeup

The 2009 Chevy TrailBlazer is a traditional body-on-frame SUV, which makes it attractive to buyers in the market for a mid-sized SUV with towing and off-road capability. The standard 4.2L 6-cylinder engine is very capable, and two available strong V8 engines make sure that one thing the TrailBlazer can never be accused of is being underpowered.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
