Chevrolet Trailblazer Guides

The proliferation of Sport Utility Vehicles in the streets of this country comes as no surprise. The SUV is an all in one vehicle that combines the size of a truck and the drive of a minivan. Their off-road capabilities and their towing capabilities make them a popular choice for many outdoorsman and sportsman. Their rugged good looks compliment their lifestyle. For urban dwellers, the SUV is a chance for them to have a weekend getaway vehicle while still serving the purpose of their daily commutes. This is where Chevy has developed the Trailblazer. It is a mid-size SUV that's strong and powerful enough for the wilderness yet compact enough to be an urban dweller. It is a very attractive family vehicle.

Based largely on the S-10 Blazer, the Chevy Trailblazer was born in 1999. The Sport Utility Vehicle craze was burning hot and Chevrolet needed a luxury brand midsize SUV in its stable. This swanky edition of the four-door blazer was packed with luxury features and was aimed to conquer a new market. The Chevy Trailblazer encountered a rough start and many critics slammed it. By 2002 though, Chevrolet did a revamp and redesigned wholly the Trailblazer. Every facet of the midsize SUV was improved. There was additional muscle beneath the hood, more chic on the exterior and more commuter and payload space indoors. This midsize SUV from Chevrolet comes also in a longer wheelbase model, enough room to comfortably seat seven adults. You can choose which options and packages you want so that you can modify it to compromise your lifestyle.

Owning a Chevy Trailblazer is a great source of pride and joy. It is also very crucial to maintain it. To keep it in tiptop shape, it is better to have preventive maintenance in certain period of times. Chevy Trailblazer parts can be found virtually anywhere. It is also good to notice that they are infused with high-grade quality to keep them in tune with Chevrolet's great engineering job with the Trailblazer. Make sure that when you purchase a Chevy Trailblazer part it is from a very reputable and experienced source. This is to avoid further damage to your beloved Chevy SUV. Using inferior products may cause further damage. When you take care of your Chevy Trailblazer, you will reap from the benefits of its reliable service. Be it may on the road or off road; a Chevy Trailblazer is a dependable companion. If you are ready for a great and wonderful, adventurous ride, so too shall the Chevy Trailblazer be.

FAQs—Chevrolet Trailblazer

I have noticed a musty smell each time I turn on the AC of my Chevrolet Trailblazer. What must be causing it? Do I need to be alarmed?

The smell of your air conditioner should be something like that of an icy air blowing on your face. If you smell anything else like that of a damp mold once you turn it on, then you must have your AC system checked out. As the cool air leaves the vents moist most of the time, mold, bacteria, fungi, and other microorganisms are likely to thrive therein. Older cars are prone to bacteria accrual as well as car air conditioners that are rarely used. In this case, you need the help of a car AC specialist to conduct an anti-bacterial treatment to eradicate the microorganism buildup behind your dash panel.

As a female driver, one of my worst fears is to experience a bursting tire. How do I change my tire in case it happens?

One of the basic tools that come with your purchase of a vehicle is the emergency jack. As a driver, it is your responsibility to ensure you have a spare tire wherever you go. After securing your parking brakes, start taking off the wheel cover and loosening the lug nuts. The jack must fit snugly onto the wheel so that it would be lifted off the ground and the lug nuts be removed. Then, pull off the tire and replace with the new one, making sure that you put back all lug nuts to keep it safely in place.

My Chevy's engine immediately overheats just after five minutes of driving. This is becoming unbearable. What must be causing it?

There are a couple of reasons that cause immediate engine overheating. It could be that your engine's coolant level is way below the prescribed level, the drive belts may be defective, the cooling fan is having issues with its temperature sensor or wiring, the ignition timing is not properly set, there may be leaks in the cooling system or vacuum system, or the engine itself is encountering mechanical issues. To best address this, it is important to have an auto professional diagnose the problem and perform the relevant solution.

What indications should I watch out for to consider AC servicing?

The performance of your air conditioning system may define your road trip experience. After all, the AC is the one component of your car that provides you with travelling mercies. An air conditioner that stops blowing cold air, a noticeable change in the air pressure, and a stale smell coming out of the vents are enough red flags to alarm you. Do not ignore these indications or pass them up as something that will just go away. You do not want to get stuck in a car that reeks of mildew smell or an air conditioner that works like a heater. If any of these indicators surface, call up your Chevy service technician and have the problem evaluated immediately.

A Brief History of the Chevrolet TrailBlazer

It’s quite difficult to see a good story based on the short life of the mid-size Chevrolet TrailBlazer. It never really had a chance to make a solid statement for itself as the model coincided with General Motor’s reorganization and successive factory closures. Despite this, the TrailBlazer existed long enough to leave a few notable highlights on its trail. These may not have set the auto industry on fire, but it’s definitely worth mentioning in honor of this popular SUV.

1999-2001: Beginnings as a trim

Before the release of a standalone TrailBlazer model, the name was used as a limited-edition trim for the 1999 Chevrolet Blazer SUV. This improved on the loaded LS and LT Blazer trims by adding features like gold alloy rims and daylight running lamps. It wasn’t until 2002 that the TrailBlazer became a separate model offered by Chevrolet.

2002-2005: Instant awards and recognitions.

Upon the introduction of the standalone TrailBlazer model, it became a hit in the market because of the SUV’s advanced gearbox, outstanding suspension system, and powerful engine. The 4.2 L straight-6 engine was also recognized on Ward’s 10 Best Engines from 2002 to 2005 because of advanced features like a double overhead camshaft (DOHC) and variable valve timing (VVT). All of this was packaged in a sleek yet rough body, coupled with a roomy 7-passenger cabin. The SUV even was named 2002’s North American Truck of the Year.

2006: The first Super Sport

The Chevrolet TrailBlazer was the first SUV to have a Super Sport (SS) trim. For this special truck, a 6.0 L 395 horsepower V8 came standard. This juice propelled it from 0 to 60 mph in under 6 seconds. A 4-speed automatic, improved differential ratio, sporty suspension, and special brakes made its list of upgrades to truly make this SUV special among Chevrolet models. Owners liked the improved handling and power. However, not everyone really appreciated such an advanced model, and instead chose the basic TrailBlazer to satisfy simple needs.

2009: The end of the trail

After a 7-year stint in the SUV market, corporate heads decided to stop the production of the Chevrolet TrailBlazer. The car had a bitter end as its later models were simply upgrades of past ones instead of completely new creations. Its end also signaled the closure of its assembly-line and plant. The Traverse replaced the TrailBlazer as the SUV on Chevy’s lineup. A 2012 model has been teased in various motor-shows, but the company is hesitant to sell it in North America because of strict fuel regulations and the rising appeal of crossovers.
