Visit Chevrolet for more information on the Chevy TrailBlazer.

Bigger than the regular-length TrailBlazer but just as capable - if not more so - the TrailBlazer EXT benefits from all the improvements of its smaller sibling, all the while offering the added flexibility of an extended wheelbase.

There are new options this year that up the refinement level, and more standard safety features as well. Yet underneath it all is the strong foundation that makes the TrailBlazer so versatile. Both TrailBlazers use hydroformed steel frame side rails, which form a strong foundation for the trucks' overall strength and solid feel, even on unpaved surfaces.

Available Models
The 2005 Chevy TrailBlazer EXT is offered in two trims: LS and LT. The TrailBlazer is covered separately.

Interior Features
The real upgrade that the Chevy TrailBlazer EXT provides is in interior room. With its spacious third-row seat, TrailBlazer EXT can carry up to seven passengers, along with more than 23 cubic feet of stowage space behind the third seat. The second and third rows can be folded flat, opening up 107 cubic feet of cargo volume.

XM Satellite Radio continues as an option for 2005. It is joined by some new add-ons, including an upgraded radio/navigation system with control touch screen in the audio faceplate and a DVD player.

Additional options on the 2005 Chevy TrailBlazer EXT include adjustable brake and accelerator pedals, sun visors with lighted vanity mirrors, an inside rearview mirror with temperature gauge and compass, rain-sensing wipers and leather seating surfaces with eight-way-power driver and passenger seats.

Exterior Features
Also optional for 2005 are a sunroof and both factory- and dealer-installed running boards.

There are two available engines this year. The standard engine is a 4.2-liter inline 6-cylinder model that can generate 275 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 275 lb-ft of torque at 3600 rpm.

The optional engine is a 5.3-liter V8 that produces 290 horsepower at 5200 rpm and 330 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm. Both engines are mated to a rugged Hydra-Matic 4L60-E electronically controlled 4-speed automatic transmission.

The V8 uses GM's innovative Displacement on Demand (DOD) technology. It enables fuel economy gains of up to 8 percent by reducing the number of cylinders engaged in the combustion process.

Safety and Security
Upgraded occupant safety is one of the key improvements to the 2005 Chevy TrailBlazer family. Some of the key upgrades include an available head side curtain airbag system with a rollover protection sensing system, an occupant sensing system for the front passenger, a revised front safety belt reminder system and the LATCH child seat anchorage system.
