The 2002 Chevrolet TrailBlazer Sets

Standard For Midsize SUVs

(NAPSI)-Chevrolet has changed the SUV landscape with its all new 2002 TrailBlazer. The TrailBlazer delivers uncompromising strength, power, security and ride quality which can be traced to a host of technologies incorporated in Chevrolet's newest midsize SUV. The four-door SUV comes available in either two-wheel drive or Autotrac four-wheel drive versions in three trim levels LS, LT, and LTZ.

"With this all-new SUV, our customers and their passengers will experience the strength, comfort and security features of a high-end passenger car, yet with all the power, versatility and value they expect from an authentic Chevy Truck," said Russ Clark, Chevrolet TrailBlazer brand manager.

The TrailBlazer's strength is exemplified in its completely new frame and chassis. Its solid foundation is a ladder-type frame that uses fully hydroformed frame side rails, a first in the midsize utility segment. The eight cross-members in the frame help provide a smooth ride and reduce noise and vibration. Paired with its sturdy frame, is the all-The bad news is that gas prices are rising faster than at any time in the last twenty years, and it looks like the trend is going to continue. The good news is that there are things you can do to make your car more fuel-efficient and lessen the amount of money you pay to the pump.

The high-tech inline six-cylinder, 24-valve Vortec 4200 engine has more horsepower than any V8 in the midsize utility segment-yet provides the fuel efficiency of a six-cylinder and the highest standard towing capacity in its class. It features dual overhead camshafts, a first in a GM Truck engine, and multi-valve technology to produce an outstanding 270 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque.

TrailBlazer also offers an array of security and convenience features to complement its first-class powertrain. A four-wheel vented disc brake system with four-wheel anti-lock brakes (ABS) is standard. Dual-level air bags for both the driver and front-seat passenger, as well as seat-mounted side-impact air bags, are standard equipment. TrailBlazer's unmatched performance in five-mph bumper damageability measures offers security in minor parking lot bumps.

"The 2002 TrailBlazer is an all-new SUV perfectly suited for active people looking for a versatile vehicle that accommodates both their everyday functional and safety needs as well as their many leisure-time activities," Clark said.

In addition to its exceptional performance, the TrailBlazer delivers rugged looks, and an impressive array of creature comforts and features that exceed expectations for a midsize sport utility vehicle. It's the distinctive face of Chevy Trucks... sporty, aggressive and contemporary. The interior is open and airy with a twin-cockpit look and feel. Measurements are spacious in nearly every area, including front and rear legroom, shoulder and hip room and rear storage. In fact, TrailBlazer has more front seat headroom and hip room that in the new Ford Explorer.

Other interior features include:

• OnStar, which is a standard feature on all but the LS model (available). This GM innovation includes emergency assistance with remote location, remote unlocking and diagnostics, emergency assistance when air bags deploy, and available services such as hands-free calling and e-mail, as well as concierge services.

• The optional Bose® Stereo System features digital technology, six speakers and a CD system. An in-dash, six-disc front-loading changer is available for convenient loading compared to remote-mounted changers, along with the versatility of dual playback CD and cassette players.
