Review of the 2005 Chevrolet TrailBlazer EXT

  • Strong drivetrains, loads of room inside and a long features list make this an attractive family vehicle, but some cheap interior materials and iffy handling keep it from gaining our full recommendation.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Class-leading engine power, soft highway ride, room for seven, extensive features list, simple controls.

  • Cons

    Skittish handling around corners, numb steering, generic interior design with mediocre materials.

  • What's New for 2005

    The TrailBlazer EXT gets minor interior revisions this year. Seating has been restyled and boasts comfort and quality improvements. Detail changes include revised chrome accents, trim enhancements and a new instrument panel appearance. A stereo system with CD/MP3 compatibility and full-length side curtain airbags (replacing last year's front-seat side airbags) are new options this year. Power rear-quarter windows are also new for 2005.

Vehicle: 2005 Chevrolet TrailBlazer EXT LT Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)

It does feel a little rocky around corners. The fuel economy is average for a vehicle of this size I suppose. Other than that, I love my Trailblazer.

Our first SUV. Rides great. Gas mileage isn't the best but the room we have is awesome. Love the 3rd row seating. Not that easy to access but it's enough room for our 3 kids. They love it. The first thing they do when getting in, is the 3rd row. They feel like chauffers.




The gas mileage is horrible

If you want to get good mileage then USE your CRUISE! I tried to just keep my speed consistant without cruise control going up a medium sized hill and it was all I could do to stay at my speed....much less accelerate. The car is smooth driving but I would recommend getting this vehicle if you live on flat terrain.




Trailblazer is the best
