For those of us who were looking at a SRT 8 Jeep Cherokee this offers another option (although not quite as quick)
If it can also tow some weight I might be all voer this.
The Srt8 can only tow 3,500lbs and it will likely be $40k.
Based on base trailblazer cost this should be above low $30's is my guess.
It says on the PDF in the website that it can trailer up to 6,700 lbs. Also, I think MSRP will be around $38k, and it may not be discounted at the beginning, but with all the price cutting these days, I'll bet $35k or less will be doable. The dealers will have MSRP in the firstweek of August or so...
However, it will have more cargo room and the ability to tow our corvette's easily is my guess.
The literature says 6,700 with 2 wheel drive and 6,500 with 4 wheel.
I wonder if those times were two or four wheel drive as my guess is 4 wheel would be low 5 second range.
I personally would recommend a larger vehicle such as a full size pick up or Suburban as a minimum...especially for hauls over 100 miles.
Although the Z06 weighs 3200 it is quite easy to approach the 6,500#s maximum capacity when you add a trailers weight, tires & wheels, tools, pit supplies, race gas, camping & personal gear for a weekend.
Don't forget you should also have some towing capacity reserve; otherwise you will be slowed way down on those long uphill grades and have a lot of sway at speed.
The Trailblazers Tranny will also be severely strained. Full sized units have better Tranny's.
The biggest specification and probably most important when towing is braking capacity. You'll get bigger brakes on the full sized vehicles.
I don't know for sure (since no exact info has been given), but I would bet the trailbazer SS will have brakes at least as large as the suburban since its designed to be a very performance oriented suv.
All other points I would agree with 110%. A Trailblazer is just too small to tow a car for any distance IMO. Its meant to be a sport vehicle, not a towing rig. Pick up a Duramax truck and spend about $700-800 on Edge's Juice w/Attitude. You should be able to pick up a LT 2500HD now for low/mid 30's with all the price cuts.
