What do you Think...Magnum SXT AWD vs Trailblazer?

Ok, here is the deal I had a lil argument with my Uncle and Cousin about how they think my other Cousin's '02 Trailblazer would kick my '06 Magnum SXT's ass. I said it maybe close, but I think I would come out with the win due to lower stance. What do you think?

What kinda race is this? Is this a street race with turns and stuff or just a straight-line drag?

Your magnum would kick the blazer's ass. Here's why.
1: Magnum V8 vs. the Blazer's 6.
2: Lower stance=better handling. Higher stance=poor handling.
3: The Magnum is a pseudo-muscle car. The Blazer is a middle-of-the-road soccer mom-mobile.
4: Dodge vs. Chevy. 'nuff said.

I voted Magnum.....Great looking car and the V8 should be sufficient with the weight of it, too!

im also too lazy to google it

0-60 for the base v8 magnum is 6.5 secs
so for the v6 im guessing around 7.5-8 or maybe less

and the trailblazer has a 200something horse I6 with 300 lb-ft of torque
0-60 in around 8 seconds, its heavier than the magnum by at least 4 or 500 lbs too

Oh yeah....I overlooked that bit, lol. I just assumed it was a V8, like the 300C etc!

Not all 300c's come with a V-8...All LX models (Charger, Magnum, and 300c) come in 6 or 8 cyl.
