A high-performance version tops 2006 additions to Chevrolet’s midsize SUVs. TrailBlazer is the best-selling version of a GM design shared with the Buick Rainier, GMC Envoy, Isuzu Ascender, and Saab 9-7X. TrailBlazer, Envoy, and Ascender offer 5-passenger and extended-length 7-seat models; Rainier and 9-7X are 5-seaters only. Regular and extended EXT TrailBlazers come in LS and uplevel LT trim. All include antilock 4-wheel disc brakes, 4-speed automatic transmission, and a 4.2-liter inline 6-cyl engine. An optional 5.3-liter V8 includes GM’s Displacement on Demand feature, which automatically deactivates four cylinders under cruise conditions to save fuel. A computer reactivates the four cylinders, as needed, for full power. All LS and LT models offer rear-wheel drive with available traction control or GM’s Autotrac 4WD, which can be left engaged on dry pavement and includes low-range gearing. GM’s Stabilitrak antiskid system is standard on all models. Seventeen-inch wheels are standard on all but the regular-length LS, which gets 16s. Newly available for 5-passenger models, the SS package includes 395-hp 6.0-liter V8, 20-inch wheels, sport suspension, and unique trim. It comes in regular-length only, with 2WD or optional all-wheel drive without low-range gearing.

Optional head-protecting curtain side airbags cover the 1st and 2nd seating rows. Rear DVD entertainment and a navigation system are also optional.
