Reviewed: 2006 Chevrolet TrailBlazer

4dr SUV 291-horsepower 4.2L I6 4-speed automatic 4WD w/low range

Why the 2006 Chevrolet TrailBlazer?

Powertrain performance

Lots of grunt and pulling power for a six. Very quick acceleration for a larger SUV.

Exterior styling

Looks are classic Chevy and very substantial appearing

Front seat support & comfort

The best front seats for cruising and around town comfort. Love the individual memory settings and adjustment range of the power controls.


Handles as good as or better than many standard sedans. Exceptional handling for a Mid-level SUV.

Why Not the 2006 Chevrolet TrailBlazer?

Insurance cost

You cannot get ahead of the depreciation on these vehicles. GM is building competitive vehicles, but they have yet to overcome the perception they are inferior to the foreign brands. Insurance is not really that big a factor.


Seals around the doors are not very good. Lots of wind and road noise at highway speeds.

Rear seat room & comfort

Far too cramped getting in and out of the rear seating.

Materials & workmanship

Wiring for seats is sloppy and obtrusive. Seals on doors move out of place easily. Center console is flimsy and e-brake trim is very low quality. Needing a prop for the hood is insulting at the price, but at least the hood is relatively light.
