Default What do you think about the Trailblazer SS?

I have been looking at the Trailblazer SS and after taking one for a test drive found out they are screamin' fast! Although it is not that practical for me and I am not planning on buying one, what do you guys think about them?

They really appeal to me in the dark blue color and will look at one everytime I see one. But, I still would get a GMT900 over them. If I had to get a TB though it would be the SS model. If they would update the TB the SS would be even better.

I think they look great but just too pricey IMO for such a small truck. I would rather go with a Hoe for the cost.

Yea, they are pretty expensive, but I for the LS2 motor I think it is worth it, I wish that Chevy would drop the LS7 out of the new Z06 Vettes into the Tahoe to make a Tahoe SS, I would definately look at that. However I don't know if it would turn out like teh TB SS, when I test drove it my face peeled back, thats how fast it was!

The Tahoe would have to lose a lot of things and weight to be an SS model. I really can't wait for the new Silverado SS it's suppose to have the LS7.

If they drop a LS7 in the Silverado SS, that will definately put it in Ram SRT-10 category, damn, now I am going to have to save more money to buy a Tahoe and a Silverado SS!!

Call me weird, but cars should be fast, but is it really a good idea to have a vehicle with a high CG go fast?

Actually the trailblazer SS has a pretty low center of gravity, actually suprisingly so. When I test drove I started out driving it like I would drive a Tahoe, becuase they are both SUVs and I assumed they would have that high center of gravity, but about 5 minutes into it I figured out that I was driving like crap and started to drive it like my twin-turbo Golf, and it really grips!! Although there was a little more body roll than my Golf it wasn't much different, and my Golf has almost no roll!
