Does anyone know if the TrailBlazer SS is included in this? It's an entirely different vehicle, compared to the LT/LS TrailBlazer; it's definitely not just an "upgrade."

Trailblazers all together are no longer being made. Their production ended recently.. the only 09's that are left are the ones already produced.

Thanks for the info. I wasn't aware of that.

My wife won't be pleased (she loves her SS and was looking forward to newer one soon).

No prob. Ya being a Trailblazer owner myself it is sad to see them go. They are one of the best selling vehicles GM has had (Trailblazers/Envoys etc.. ) and they are on the roads EVERYWHERE, however GM had different plans for it with the new crossovers etc.. so the whole trailblazer platform is now gone :(

Oh well, when the time comes in a few years I will have to just get a low mileage 09

BTW, not sure if you are a member or not, but check out trailvoy.com it is a great site!

Outstanding to hear a confirmation, even though I wasn't extremly worried in the short run. Does this mean that the SS will be around for about four of five years at least then?

I took it as meaning that as long as sales are good they will always make future models.

Hopefull still. But I understnad that GM has much bigger problems...
Eh - I can only ask this for the faint glimmer of hope I had about Z28 coming back, but how in the Heck was the ZR1 not included in that?! I'm not complaining, don't get me wrong. Also, I'm very glad to learn this isn't affecting SS ; at least it looks like I'll be able to afford THAT car, LOL! That'll make the wifey happier. I'll just have to add a TVS, KB, or Whipple on her I guess

I don't see why they wouldn't want a car that's making money and not costing them (per se).

With the economy in the tank, I wonder if this is the beginning of the Mad Max era.
I’m be driving my SS Camaro a couple years from now saying
…The last of the V8 Interceptors….
(less black leather, gun, and Aussie accent)

If you have a TB SS you don't need a new one just need to care for it. Actually means the value +++ on your existing TB SS cause rare factor from the discontinue.

As far as modding... this is good news for aftermarket perpformance shops.

Funny how economy works one thing dies and another is born.

The reason the z06 and the zr1 aren't included in that is because the corvette team is not affiliated with the performance group at gm. they're their own separate entity.
