Visit Chevrolet for more information on the Chevy Trailblazer.


The Trailblazer is Chevrolet's midsize SUV, blending the handling and agility of smaller Trackers with the ruggedness and towing ability of larger Suburbans and Tahoes. The result of this blend of capabilities is a versatile vehicle that offers an unequaled combination of strength, power and high-tech precision, wrapped in a design that evokes patented Chevy Truck toughness. Joined by a larger Trailblazer EXT, the two comprehensively cover the midsize SUV segment.

Available Models
The 2003 Chevy Trailblazer comes in three models: LS, LT and LTZ. Also available is a North Face Edition, which includes a number of special features designed for the outdoor enthusiast.

Interior Features
The four-door 2003 Chevy Trailblazer seats five passengers. The base LS model is equipped with air conditioning with dual-zone manual controls, power steering, tilt steering wheel, power windows and door locks and an AM/FM/CD player. The LT adds cruise control, an 8-way power driver seat, heated power mirrors and a compass, while the top-line LTZ completes things with the OnStar System, an 8-way power passenger seat, driver-seat and mirror memory and steering-wheel radio and climate controls.

The interior of the new North Face Edition is decked out with North Face seats, mesh map pockets, liftgate lighting, an underfloor storage cargo liner, heavy-duty floor/cargo mats and special North Face duffel bags and blanket. In addition, there are a number of options that can be added to spice up the Trailblazer.

Exterior Features
The exterior of the North Face Edition is designed for the bush. It features lower accent-color body cladding, body-colored outside rear-view mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, running lamps, a liftgate luggage rack, headlamp washers, B-pillar badging and a clothesline to dry out whatever needs to be dried.

Performance
The upgraded engine on the 2003 Chevy Trailblazer adds more power and meets or exceeds all sound requirements. In addition, it is also quite fuel-efficient, a feature everyone likes. The engine is a Vortec 4.2-liter/ 256-cu. inch I6 with 275 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 275 lb-ft of torque at 3600 rpm. Four-wheel drive is available with all Trailblazers.

For a large vehicle, the 2003 Chevy Trailblazer handles exceptionally well. This is a result of its five-link rear suspension, independent, double-A-arm front suspension and hydraulic power-assist rack-and-pinion steering.

Safety and Security
Chevy Trailblazers are given a comprehensive safety package with four-wheel vented disc antilock brakes with front aluminum dual piston calipers and dual-stage front airbags. The brakes use an advanced system of 12 specially tuned body mounts to isolate road inputs and noise, limiting vibration and harshness on any surface.
