The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
Families can do much better with any of the more modern crossover SUV designs—including Chevy’s own Traverse—but the 2009 Chevrolet TrailBlazer is still a good vehicle for towing purposes. Much less of a cute-ute than it used to be, the 2008 Jeep Liberty defines SUV-lites by not being one.
