2004 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4WD 2dr SUV (4.3L 6cyl 5M)
The ZR2 suspension is the best I have used from a stock SUV. The vehicle has a slight tendency to oversteer on gravel or snow, but the base width lets you carry the slide an recover easily. The mileage for an SUV is average and the interior has some cheaply made plastic moldings, but just look at the exterior style. It is a great looking SUV. The 190 horses from the 4.3l V6 is not the greatest derived power from a modern internal comb. engine, but the gear ratio provides some awsome torque. For a 4850 lb vehicle it can pull just 150 lbs under its gross weight.
On the fly 4wheel drive. Stock stereo. ZR2 suspension. Head room. Balanced weight for slide recovery. Style
Plastic moldings stink. New cooling system with a turbo-charger. Better boot window opening button. Dent resistant doors. Addition of some carbon fiber to remove some of the weight. Continuation production of the brush guard option.
