    AWD with an ls2 motor. :coolugh: Been looking at them for awhile and thinking on picking a used one up. 25K$-29K$ for a low mileage 06/07

    What did you end paying for yours. I am looking at an 06 with low miles on it loaded minus the navi system. They are asking 26 for it.

    Brand new MSRP was 44,110 AWD with every option, including the $210 red paint

    paid $36,985 and got them to throw in an extended warranty (that my cam that goes in next month will ruin)

    fo sho

    The regular trailblazer is a total piece of shit. It's amazing what an LS2 and a lot of suspension work can do to change a truck.

    A similarly priced one to mine would have been $10k more anywhere I went. Money better spent in mods :)

    I believe they're RWD, aren't they? Anyway they're loud (good), pretty quick and handle well for a SUV, and look sick with those wheels. Unfortunately they get 14mpg highway, have worse interiors than most 4 year old's PowerWheels and if you need a performance SUV why not just spend the extra money for the faster, better looking, better appointed Cherokee SRT8.

    AWD or RWD, your choice.
    I get 20mpg highway at 5-10 over speed limit. My buddies SRT8 pulls 12mpg. Maybe you have your numbers wrong.
    Agreed on the interior, its kinda shitty, but nothing rattles and in person it really doesn't bother me.
    I don't really know what's better appointed about the SRT8. It stands out a lot more, but otherwise the Trailblazer will be faster for cheaper
