Looks hideous? Why does GM love the trailblazer front end so much? Have you seen their minivan:barf: I hope that's not their final vehicle. That is just terrible.

God how can you say that? I think it looks great myself.

With they 5.3L with DOD, they are saying approx 25 mpg highway, 20.5 average.

Riiiight, and the normal person drives how much in the city opposed to the highway?

DOD if it's the same type of system Chrysler has, really only works on the highway...

So, what you have is a low power motor in a big fat pig of a truck... Less power, more weight = more throttle to move it...

You have a 320hp motor in a big fat pig of a truck that seemlessly switches displacement on and off when you need it. Light to light in the city yeah you won't get the mileage...but on average you'll get better mileage. Nothing wrong with that...as long as it works well. If you are talking about the normal person going back and forth to work in traffic...then yeah...but why would you buy a 6000lb, 320hp (or more) truck just to idle to work in the morning? BAR CAR BAR CAR BAR CAR. :D

i do design work on all the new trucks/suv's, and let me tell you the caddy is awesome lookin!
350 hp means bigger vanity mirrors so all the soccer moms can floor it from light to light while applying their "face" wishing they had their grand am back but happy that they can fit a thousand kids in there on the way to chuckie cheese. While still never knowing how to engage the 4wd for the duration of there LEASE..

Also why do the engine upgrades go in 5 hp intervals..Whats the fukkin point..:D


Wrong quote and i dont feel like fixin it..:twofinger

Looks good but it's still a Chevy. In other words, piece of shit, and don't get mad 'cause I own a Chevy that I got when I married. This is why American auto manufacturers are loosing money. They build substandard products compared to Japanese, Germans, etc. and don't really give a damn about fuel economy. 20 MPG! Wow, big freakin deal.
