I'm thinking about swapping out my D-Max for a Chevrolet Trailblazer.  Anybody have one?

We're also considering selling our Santa Fe for a Trailblazer... any feedback from current Trailblazer owners would be appreciated.

In the Philippines? You may find one, but I don't recall seeing one - ever.

Unless I am thinking of the wrong vehicle here. My internet is too slow tonight to do much, certainly not an internet search.

They are advertising the new trailblazer extensively these days.  They only mention it as a 4x2  [ and make no mention of a 4x4 ].  They state the torque- which is so high I assume its a diesel engine

I have an 09 Avalanche LTZ with the 6 speed in it. While I love the truck I can't stand the 6 speed. To get on the freeway or pass someone you need to literally stomp on the gas pedal which causes the truck to lurch violently. Just pressing firmly on the gas will not get the transmission to shift fast enough to do what you want to do. I had an older GMC Sierra with a 4 speed in it and loved it. The 6speed is only good when already on the freeway and cruising at high speed, which rarely happens to someone driving in the Philippines.

Oh we have freeways but rarely get up to speed because people don't seem to grasp the concept of keeping right except to pass. They see nothing wrong with driving slowly in the left lane blocking up the freeway. 

 

I read some complaints about the chevy 6 speed transmission having clunky shifting but had a 2013 and found it to be fine.
