Modern crossover SUVs these days tend to be based on a car architecture, which helps them drive better on the road, have better performance and ultimately a better fuel economy. If you compare the 2009 Chevrolet Trailblazer to these modern crossovers, it’s different in every regard.

First and foremost, the design is what you would expect from a vehicle a decade ago and not one sold well into the 2000’s. Sure, a lot of people may be into it, but you simply can’t deny the fact that competitors look fresher.

The other thing about the Trailblazer is that it’s based on a frame architecture that’s used for pickups and the classic 4x4 vehicles of old. This makes it a bit unwieldy on the road, but very good for towing and hauling.

 

Chevrolet Trailblazer 0-60 and Quarter Mile

Despite the ladder frame, the Trailblazer is still fast on the road, thanks to powerful inline-6 and V8 engines on offer. The base six-cylinder has 285 horsepower and 276 pounds-feet of torque, which should be sufficient for most people. As a matter of fact, this is one of the most powerful six-cylinder engines in its class.

The 5.3-liter V8 is a bit more powerful, with 300 horsepower and meatier 321 pounds-feet of torque, which helps in lower revs and when towing or hauling. The most powerful “SS” trim comes with a 6.0-liter V8 engine that pumps out 395 horsepower. This version is the one to go if you tow and haul a lot, or if you’re into more energetic driving. The Chevrolet Trailblazer SS sprints to 60 mph in just 6.3 seconds, which is commendable for a big SUV.

Even though it’s powerful enough for fast driving down the road, the Trailblazer is not great when it comes to twisty roads. The steering lacks feel and precision and the suspension is not responsive enough for fast driving on twisty roads. The soft suspension makes for a floaty ride quality that’s great on smooth roads, like the highway for example, but rough pavement upsets it enough so that the ride becomes jittery.

 

Exterior & Interior

The Trailblazer is one of the oldest SUVs in its class, and that shows on the exterior and the interior. Without being too offensive, the exterior is best suited for the 90’s and not the 2000’s. It’s conservatively styled and it pales in comparison to more modern crossover SUVs. Still, some may like the rugged look it provides.

If the exterior is conservative looking, the interior is just plain cheap and boring. And that’s true not just when you compare it to its competitors, but to every new car out there. The cabin is almost entirely one color, with black plastics that look like they’re derived from the 90’s and generic fabric that just adds to the paleness.

 

Conclusion

The 2009 Chevrolet Trailblazer is not a car that you buy with your heart. The exterior design is conservative and the cabin boring, while the driving characteristics are short of what its competitors can offer. However, the Trailblazer is still a good option for those who want a rugged SUV that’s great for towing and hauling, while also delivering great performance even with the base engine.
