2006 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LT 4dr SUV 4WD (4.2L 6cyl 4A)
Traveling down the road in an all- wheel drive Honda Pilot, I was amazed at how poorly it handled in 6 inches of snow. After I got stuck on a hill, I put the Pilot in low gear, pushed a button to lock the rear differential, and again I amazed. But this time it was how easily the Pilot freed itself and was able to move down the road. Living in the mountains of Colorado, this little test proved that I needed something better than all-wheel drive. One of the things that sold me on the 2006 Chevy Trailblazer was its automatic locking rear differential.
Nice on-road handling for a vehicle that is capable off-road. Standard Electronic Stability Control. Nice 6 cylinder and 8 cylinder engine choices. 36- inch turning circle with 5- passenger version. Automatic locking rear differential.
Front crash test was only 3 stars for the driver, but hey, Iím bigger than a Subaru.
