It looks the same as the normal one...<br>Whats changed front and rear bumpers?

12-21-2004, 03:55 PM
Well more important than the exterior is whats under the hood! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/cool.gif" BORDER="0">

Like I've said at GMI, GM needs to put their money elsewhere - where it counts. People in American don't buy SUVs because of the 400HP rating, but because of the versatility, comfort, and safety of a vehicle.

I'd buy it <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/2cool.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/driver.gif" BORDER="0">

it's ok, but nothinf special.

Not bad looking. It's a good improvement over the base model without being too gaudy. Hopefully for GM's sake it will have more of an audience than the SSR.

If it has the same "spectacular" interior as the current TrailBlazer, I doubt anybody would be willing to pay the 45K pricetag for one of these...

I like it. I saw the concept last year in New York and habe been waiting for the production ever since. I know some of you aren't impressed, but I am very happy to see a TrailBlazer with a cleaner exterior and a more powerful engine.

This would have been a good time to do a mild facelift. Another opportunity GM missed. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/sleep.gif" BORDER="0">

I like the smooth stripped look of the sides, but they didn't go far enough with the smoothing (remember how sweet the concept looked), and the rear is sitting too low for some reason.

01-15-2005, 04:16 AM
Well nearly all the Chevy, Ford,SUVs or 4X4s look the same

Well, it looks pimp, and just for that reason is reason enough that it will find a lot of buyers.

01-15-2005, 07:28 AM
It's kind of sad but you are exactly right

01-15-2005, 11:51 AM
The 2007 shape is probably hiding under the current shape? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/nixweiss.gif" BORDER="0"> It was a wild guess

01-15-2005, 02:41 PM
We can hope can't we?!?

01-16-2005, 04:21 AM
Yeah we can hope

01-17-2005, 12:56 PM
I trust that the production version will have TWO exhaust outlets? Just looks a little off, as it is. <p>And are those the same wheels as the Saab 9-7 variant?

01-17-2005, 05:48 PM
Excuse my ignorance, but exactly, what are the changes? Two somewhat ridiculously looking exhausts Aside? (Don't get me wrong the Trailblazer is OK to me, just what changed?)

Silverado SS got a 345hp Vortec V8, 20 inch wheels, bigger disc brakes, revised steering and the Z60 suspension package. I suspect we'll find similar changes in the Trailblazer, but I haven't heard officially what powertrain they went with...

01-17-2005, 06:51 PM
Ohh so this is like a "Trailblazer Sport"...<p>Hee hee a trailblazer sport... and a Hummer H3... funny things are happening at GM...

01-17-2005, 08:41 PM
Funny things, perhaps. But good things, IMO. And necessary things, as it were.

01-21-2005, 04:19 PM
Typical GM......solution for a substandard product is more horsepower.....<br>NOT

01-21-2005, 04:37 PM
The Silverado SS also has AWD also
