ReviewNice comfortable SUV. Good Power in
the 6 and I think plenty of storage.
Sound proofed windows make it very
quiet inside. My wife even likes to
drive it. Had Blazers (3) and this is
a good change. Lots of whistles and
bells at least for this country boy.
Mileage has been trip 19.2 (cruise) and
around town 18. Not too different than
Blazer but I use 87 Octane now and no
clicking like in the Blazers. Sound
system is no Bose but is acceptable.
Climate contol can be confusing even
with instructions but good when you get
the hang of it. Excellent
instrumentation. Has a compressor which
I thought was overkill but I've used it
twice already. I must say overall, I
like it a lot.
Best FeaturesQuiet and comfortable for a 6'4" me. Driver's seat is big and comfy. Rides well and mileage is acceptable. Goes when you punch it. Actually runs great on 87octane with no clicking. My wife will even drive it on trips.
Worst FeaturesClimate control. Folding rear seats don't come down all the way when I am driver. Better handling. Better mileage. Quieter transmission. Improve side mirrors for blind spots and extension when the driver's seat is full back. More and sharper colors.
