The Chevy Blazer is back and better than ever. Once a small pickup favored by teens, the reimagined Blazer is now a technologically advanced SUV with enough room for a small family and all its gear. And with prices that start at less than $30,000, the new Blazer is still affordable. Plus, it has a whole host of optional equipment that allows buyers to customize it to meet their needs. Chevrolet has made excellent upgrades that are helping to give the redesigned Blazer a reputation for having style, attractiveness, great performance and all the power you need to go anywhere and do anything with ease.
More Than You Expect
The new Chevrolet Blazer delivers a lot more than people who knew the old Blazer might expect. The 2019 version of the Blazer has a unibody structure, transverse mounted engine, comfortable two-row seating and the latest in infotainment technology. It’s available in 6 trim levels. The base model L trim, the 1LT, 2LT, 3LT, the sporty RS and the top of the line Premier. Each succeeding trim level offers more and better available options that help to make the new Blazer competitive with the top tier of midsize crossover SUVs in its class, while maintaining the rebellious soul of the original Blazer.
An Upgraded Powertrain
One look at the powertrain and you will quickly realize this is not your father’s Blazer. The new and improved Blazer is powered by two new engines and a much better transmission. The standard powerplant on the 2019 Chevrolet Blazer is a direct injected 2.5-liter, 193 horsepower, inline-four engine. The higher trims benefit from a 3.6-liter, 305 horsepower, direct injected V-6 engine. Both engines work in tandem with a smooth shifting nine-speed automatic transmission. Plus, models with the V-6 engine have the option to add all-wheel-drive to make their driving experience even better. The V-6 Blazer also has a 4,500 pound tow rating. That’s enough strength to take whatever you want, wherever you want.
A Great Looking Exterior
The stylish, aggressive look of the exterior of the 2019 Blazer will make you forget how the ‘old school’ Blazer used to look. The changes start with the attractive new grille capping the Blazer’s nose. It continues with the well-shaped LED headlights and taillights, uniquely sculpted body panels and 18-inch rims on the lower trims and 21-inch rims on the higher trims set far out on the corners. Together they create a daring new look that’s sleek, interesting, aerodynamic, sporty and impressive. This great-looking Blazer is sure to turn heads with its unique blend of upscale ostentation and visual dignity.
A Wonderful Interior
Open the doors of the new five-passenger Blazer and be prepared to be impressed by its spacious, elegant interior. Its available 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, panoramic twin-pane glass roof, two rows of comfortable, well-shaped, heated and cooled front seats, heated rear seats and upscale upholstery on higher trims beckons you to climb in and enjoy the ride. Available smartphone integration, wireless charging pad, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and in-car wireless data make it more fun while its flexible rear bench helps create cargo space that exceeds 64 cubic feet.
Drivers will love the new Chevy Blazer’s heated steering wheel, six-way manually-adjustable driver’s seat, drive modes that let them adjust the vehicle’s stability and traction systems based on the driving conditions, standard rearview camera, adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warnings, lane-keeping equipment, full-speed automatic emergency braking and trailer-hookup guidance system. The vehicle’s six USB ports, electronic locking glove box and hands-free power liftgate are also popular convenience features. The Blazer no longer comes with monster mudder tires. Instead, there’s a sophisticated AWD system on the RS and Premier models which features a twin-clutch rear differential that can move torque between the rear wheels to provide better traction and handling.
The Chevy Blazer’s 50th Birthday
The Chevy Blazer will turn 50 in 2019. And like every other 50 year old, it has endured a lot of changes. Long gone is the truck-based body-on-frame SUV that rode over the roughest terrain and took teens to their favorite rivers, lake and mud holes. In its place is a more sophisticated Blazer that’s a car-based 5-passenger crossover built to ferry families. Gone is the metal dashboard. The new Blazer has HID headlamps, dual-zone climate control, 4G LTE and heated mirrors. But people are still as passionate about the new Blazer as they were about the original version decades ago.
