Congratulations to the engineering team that designed the Chevrolet Trailblazer, North American Truck of the Year for 2002. According to the story, the Trailblazer just eeked out a victory over the Chevrolet Avalanche, that came in a close second. The Jeep Liberty was third in a pack of about 10 nominations.

Been a good year for General Motor Trucks. Avalanche with Motor Trend Truck of the Year 2002. GMC Envoy with Motor Trend SUV of the Year 2002 and now Trailblazer with the North American Truck of the Year.

This was a key win for the General because they were head to head against the completely redesigned 2002 Ford Explorer - the creator and sweetheart of this category. The Explorer was trounced in the competition.

Oh ya - here is the link to the story:
