I just traded in my 2000 GMC Jimmy for a 2005 Chevy Trailbazer. I must say it is a far better vehicle than the Jimmy ever was. The ride is awesome. My only complaint is how gutless it is off the line. Once rolling it cruises along fine, but the 275 ft.lbs. of torque feels like 175. From a stop it is slower than death, once you get the engine above 3500 rpm then it kicks in. I got beaten off the line by gramma in her Neon repeatedly the other day. I havent hooked my snowmobile trailer with 2 sleds on it up to the Trailblazer yet, i hate to see how long it takes me to get moving with 3500 lbs. in tow. I must say that I am very dissapointed with the "supposed" power of this motor. Yes, it is whisper quiet, which I am not too fond of, and it is super smooth, I like that. I just wish it had some go when you hit the throttle. The TB came with the 3:42 gears, which I suspect may have something to do with the bottom end issue, But with all the torque it supposed to have that shouldnt be a big issue. I tried out a TB with 3:73's and didn't notice a big difference. Any suggestions????
