Most reviewers are less than impressed with the styling of the 2008 Chevrolet TrailBlazer.

On sale since 2002, the TrailBlazer’s basic design hasn’t been updated much since that long-ago debut. Cars.com notes that the TrailBlazer's "headlights, grille and other elements share similarities with Chevrolet's larger Tahoe and Suburban," while Edmunds simply refers to the vehicle’s "aging design." Kelley Blue Book, on the other hand, praises the "2008 Chevrolet TrailBlazer's rugged yet refined pose," which "seems as comfortable off-road as in the valet parking lot."

Car and Driver considers the TrailBlazer’s cabin to be "one of the cheapest-looking interiors in the automotive world." ConsumerGuide reports that the interior "suffers [from] generic fabrics and unappealing hard, molded plastics that don't match the look or feel of most competitors' decor." Edmunds continues on the "aging design" theme: "another major drawback is the [2008 Chevrolet] TrailBlazer's cabin design...it looked out of date soon after this midsize SUV's debut." The interior “places it at the bottom of the class,” Car and Driver believes.

Conclusion

There may be reasons to buy a 2008 Chevrolet TrailBlazer, but looks aren't among them.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
