Chevrolet Trailblazer LT what is the towing capacity for the

Resolved Question:

what is the towing capacity for the 2007 chevy trailblazer (5.3 - V8 engine)? Is it different for the LS & LT versions?

Expert:  David H replied 3 years ago.
The towing capacity is 11,000 pounds for 3.42 rear axle ratio.
Capacity is 11,500 pounds for 3.73 rear axle ratio.The LS or LT makes no difference.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
With all due respect that sounds way too high. My understanding is that it is somewhere between 6500-6800 lbs. Are you sure the TB 5.3 -V-8 can tow/trailer 11,000 ilbs? I'm not sure even the Tahoe can handle 11,000lbs ?
Expert:  David H replied 3 years ago.
Sorry you are correct the 11000-11500 is the gross combination weight for the vehicle.Here are the tow capacities from the manual.
