Visit Chevrolet for more information on the Chevy TrailBlazer.

New seats, more optional equipment, new colors and more safety features all attend the 2005 edition of the popular TrailBlazer. Chevrolet's midsize sport utility vehicle is the top-selling version of a design that is used by GMC, Buick and Isuzu.

XM Satellite Radio continues as an option for 2005. It is joined by some new add-ons, including an upgraded radio/navigation system with control touch screen in the audio faceplate and a DVD player.

The former will prevent you from having to ask for directions, while the latter keeps the kids quiet for hours on end.

Available Models
The 2005 Chevy TrailBlazer is offered in two trims: LS and LT. The TrailBlazer EXT is covered separately.

Interior Features
Though not a complete redesign, the 2005 Chevy TrailBlazer does manage to upgrade the interior trim from last year. There is revised badging on the steering wheel, a new seat design for improved comfort and new door panel, floormat and console trim designs for LT models.

In addition, there are new chrome interior accents throughout both the LS and LT versions of the 2005 TrailBlazer.
Available options on the TrailBlazer include adjustable brake and accelerator pedals, sun visors with lighted vanity mirrors, an inside rearview mirror with temperature gauge and compass, rain-sensing wipers and leather seating surfaces with eight-way-power driver and passenger seats,

Exterior Features
Also optional for 2005 are a sunroof and both factory- and dealer-installed running boards.

The Chevy TrailBlazer continues to be rugged, able to handle rough driving conditions without much of a problem. 2005 TrailBlazers can be had with either two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. An Autotrac four-wheel-drive system is standard on 4WD models, while traction control is available as an option for 2WD models.

The standard engine this year with 2005 Chevy TrailBlazers is a 4.2-liter inline 6-cylinder model that can generate 275 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 275 lb-ft of torque at 3600 rpm. It is mated to a rugged Hydra-Matic 4L60-E electronically controlled 4-speed automatic transmission.

For the bumps: a five-link rear suspension and independent double-A-arms up front work with a system of 12 specially tuned body mounts using hydraulics and rubber pads to dramatically reduce vibration and harshness on any kind of road or trail.

Safety and Security
Upgraded occupant safety is one of the key improvements to the 2005 Chevy TrailBlazer. Some of the key upgrades include an available head side curtain airbag system with a rollover protection sensing system, an occupant sensing system for the front passenger, a revised front safety belt reminder system and the LATCH child seat anchorage system.
