sts-v or trailblazer ss

Hello,*

Im fixing to sell my f250 and have been lookin to buy a sts-v or trailblazer ss. What are ya'lls opinions? I used to pull alot of trailers but now i have a new job where that is not required, and i need something to just drive back and forth. Girlfriend lives 4 hours away and family lives 4 hours in the other direction. I want something fun that can semi haul people around if need be.*Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.

*Thanks,*Dalton

P.s. what fuel mileage would those get if anyone has any experience?

Can't go wrong with either. Get both! Four hours one way and "fun" to drive rarely equates to "good" mileage. Caddy prob does better with its extra gears. Is AWD a need? My experience tells me folks that are ACTUALLY in the market for these rides don't consider mpg's. Its 0-60, 0-100, 60-100, and 60-0mph and BHP and FTlbs they are after.

I had an '07 TB SS (awd)...it's a great truck (just traded it in for a new acadia). Mpg averaged around 13.5...that's probably 60-70% around town driving, and i didnt really beat on it (too much). Only mods were a tune, k&n drop in filter and a cat-back exhaust. If you add e-fans, you'll pick another 1mpg or so.

If you'd consider buying new, check out the durango r/t....recently test drove an 2013 and liked it a lot.

That's really a tough choice to be honest. I love my TBSS, it's such a convenient vehicle. It handles like a car but has the room of an SUV which is great - especially for me - I have two dogs to haul around! LOTS of potential in a TBSS also.

The STS is a nice cruiser though, that's for sure. A FAST one!

I really like my '09 TBSS on the highway for three reasons: 1) I can haul a lot of stuff in it if I am taking it on a road trip. 2) It will blow the doors off most of the idiots who don't know how to use the slow lane and 3) I set the cruise at 67 on the interstate and achieved 18.7 mpg. That's without any modifications whatsoever and 91 octane. Pretty impressive IMO - hope that helps you out
