What's the advantage of having a v8 in a trailblazer ext over a inline 6 in the same trailblazer ext ?
Ghost said:Than why did GM stick a straight six in a ext when they could have stuck with the v8 ? Is the straight six cheaper ?... i see some members have the ext v8.
Learn something new everyday thanks Roadiethe roadie said:The I6 still had the most power in its SUV class. The V8 wasn't ready at launch time in 2002, but the EXT was. So the first year had only I6. Then in 2003, the V8 became available, but why would GM reduce the number of options they had already designed in? EXT/XL production ended in 2006.
the roadie said:Given your response in the tire pressure thread, you should have gotten an SS and not a "huge family plus the dogs" EXT. I don't get it.
Ghost said:I know there's torque with an I6, just feel like I'm missing out on v8 power.
TbSS's in general are not all that expensive. Depending on mileage u can pick one up for $12k give or take. Just sayin........
