they already offer a colorado 2wd with the 5.3. comes with ZQ8 suspension package. 300 HP in a truck that weighs just under 3500 lbs. thats fast enough for the average person.

either autotrader is being uncooperative, or I'm missing something...

I found exactly one used SRT8, an '07 model within 100 miles of 48430 - asking $30k

I found 7 trailblazer SS's within 25 miles. Lowest asking was $19k for an '06 2wd, with most showing up in the low 20's for AWD.

while I agree the SRT8 is a horse, I had the impression that they were pricier MSRP new as well than the Chebbys?

yea typically i think the ss is way easier to find (which was one appeal for us to get a srt8) and cheaper. It took us about 5 mo to find the one we like and it ended up being at thelen in bay city but there aren't many for sale in michigan. Chicago has a highly saturated market for srt8s though

I would get it. I saw them all the time on woodward in august and they are very fast for an SUV. Our yukon xl has the slower 6.0 and its pretty quick so I can just imagine how much faster the trailblazer ss is.

i have a base model envoy with a 4.2L i6. i have had tons of problems with it. love the engine. the rest of it is garbage. transfer case control module went out at 40k. blower motor resistor pack at 40k. needed rotors front and rear at 35k. front wheel bearings at 45k. front bumper cover is very loose. stereo only plays on the right channel. all stupid little stuff, but very annoying.

it does get about 21 to 22 mpg on the freeway. tows pretty well. turns on a dime. lots of room inside. builds most of its power quite hi in the rpm range, but has ample power.

im sure the ss is better, but still has alot of the same plastic junk inside. good luck

Trailblazer SS' are badass! Whats most appealing to me is the fact that you can pile all your friends into your 12 second grocery getter with a few bolt on's. I have always loved them from the day they came out. I have toyed with the idea of selling my LS1 Trans Am for one but it's just never been in my budget.
