Visit Chevrolet for more information on the Chevy TrailBlazer.

Chevy's TrailBlazer has consistently been one of the most successful mid-size sport utility vehicles on the road. Teamed up with the larger TrailBlazer EXT, the duo combines Chevy truck strength with some of the finer features of road driving.

There are plenty of new features on the 2004 Chevy TrailBlazer, including a last-door locking feature and new 17-inch bright aluminum wheels. Interior design changes include a monochromatic instrument panel, Light Cashmere cloth reclining bucket seats or premium two-tone leather seating surfaces. Infotainment additions for 2004 include XM Satellite and Navigation radios.

Available Models
The 2004 Chevy TrailBlazer is offered in two models: LS and LT. In addition, there is also a unique North Face model. The TrailBlazer EXT is covered in a separate review.

Interior Features
The four-door Chevy TrailBlazer seats five passengers. Up front, drivers are given the convenience of a 22-character message display, which provides information on many of the car's functions.

TrailBlazer's heating/ventilation/air conditioning system has been rated one of the best in its class. It has dual zones and a high-airflow system that warms up and cools down faster than virtually any other system in the segment or price range.

The LT model has an overhead console with a Universal Garage Transmitter and Travelnote. Universal Garage Transmitter allows vehicle owners to program up to three different signals for items such as the garage door opener, house lights or an electric gate, while Travelnote can record brief reminders on a digital voice recorder.

Exterior Features
The North Face Edition is made available for the outdoor lover. In addition to such interior items as The North Face duffel bags and blanket, these models also feature unique exterior design cues. They have standard unique 17-inch sport aluminum wheels, lower accent-color body cladding, body-colored outside rearview mirrors, running lamps, headlamp washers and B-pillar badging.

The 2004 Chevy TrailBlazer uses a 4.2-liter, inline 6-cylinder Vortec engine with 275 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 275 lb-ft of torque at 3600 rpm. The result of this inline configuration is superior balance, which virtually eliminates shake and idle roll. 4-speed automatic transmission is standard.

An Autotrac four-wheel-drive system is standard on 4x4 models. Traction control is available as an option for two-wheel-drive models.

Safety and Security
The Chevy TrailBlazer features 12 specially tuned body mounts to both secure the vehicle and reduce vibration and road noise. Four-wheel vented disc antilock brakes, dual-stage airbags for front seating positions and three-point restraint systems for all seating positions (including the middle rear) are standard. Side-impact airbags for front seating positions are also available.
