I have a 2008 Toyota Fortuner and love it. I hate trikes and refuse to ride Jeepneys.

I'm just sick of taxis and now to get a grab is impossible so I bit the bullet and forked out, only 3 years old with 20000km on it

Those chevy 2.8l v6s do run a long time. Had one in an old Isuzu Trooper.

The Trailblazer 2.8 is an inline 4 cylinder turbo-diesel.  Great power and torque here in Asia:  200 hp 500 nm of torque.

Chevy Colorado is available in the U.S. with the same engine but tuned and tweeked for U.S. emissions standards.  Only 187 hp and I think 380 nm.

The big question is how much did you pay for the trailblazer?

That is very low km so you might have paid a premium.

I suspect my 2014 Trailblazer LTZ 4X4 with 56,000 km on it is worth around 900,000 now.  They seem to have depreciated fairly quickly so a good used one can be a solid buy and should hold value better.  I'm contemplating selling mine because our family would really do better in a mini-van.  I might just get a mini-van and keep the Trailblazer because it has been a good car for the past 3 years.

It's a 2015 and paid 930,000 which seems fair with only 20.000k on it

I paid 680,000p for my 2008 Toyota Fortuner (Gas) with just below 80,000k. It was in good condition and had new tires.
