Today towing a trailer with 5000 lbs. of retaining wall home from menards this jerk pulls out in front of us on the two lane HWY. It wouldnt have been bad if he would have gotten going but barely even starts moving. I'm slamming on the brakes trying to slow down and doing this from 55 is a chore in a hurry. So I know I cant slow down in time so Im like "hang on" to my cousin who was with me and I gun it to try and get around. So you dont say oh why didnt you just go around in the first place there was another car coming at us in the other lane. So I floored it and she jumps to second and is howling trying to get the beast moving. Made it past him in time and with a little to spare and I was impressed because 5 years and 105k miles of wear have gone it to the poor thing. But Im glad to know that it still has it when you need it.
The Trailblazers IMO are VERY powerful. I love how GM and Isuzu squeezed 295? HP out of a 4.2 I-6 that is only slightly smaller than the 4.3 V6. Amazing. And I love how they sound when they wind up with a aftermarket intake. :P
I really with GM would drop the wheezy 4.3 in the Silverados and Sierras and make the 4.2L I-6 the base engine.
it is powerful especially moving out of a Explorer we love it so much that when my aunt and uncle wanted a new SUV they asked us about them and we said they were awesome and right now they are looking at a Envoy Denali with that there would be 3 of these in our family
yes that trailer did but still stopping is a chore when you have that momentum and weight pushing you along. but I dont think that it would have been a big problem without them because the boat weighs alot not that much but it doesnt have breaks
I was looking at my grandfathers truck before we went we were going to take that but even though it has a V8 it still has a lower rating than the TB. Ford quality there a high towing limit of like 4200 lbs even with the 5.4 is crazy. The TB starts at like 5000 and goes to 6000 limit
