The Chevrolet Blazer Is Back As A Crossover




After a silly teaser showing a dude in a blazer, the Chevy Blazer is making a comeback next year as a stylish crossover that lacks the body-on-frame four-wheel drive credentials of its predecessor.

The new Blazer will slot between the Equinox and Traverse crossovers in Chevy’s lineup. It’ll be a unibody structure with front-wheel or all-wheel drive options, but no serious off-roading chops.

Engines are either a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 193 horsepower and 188 lb-ft of torque or a 3.6-liter V6 with 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque, with only a nine-speed automatic transmission available.

Base Blazers start with 18-inch wheels, with the RS and Premier trims getting 20-inch wheels with the option to upgrade to 21-inches. The RS is the one with the blackened accents on the exterior, as well as red touches inside, and the Premier gets chrome trim and dual-tone seating.

The new two-row mid-size crossover seats five, with an eight-inch infotainment touchscreen with available Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Wi-Fi hotspot with 4G LTE, six USB ports, and optional wireless phone charging, hands-free tailgate, panoramic sunroof and a towing capability of 4,500 pounds with the appropriate package.

RS and Premier models will get a rear-view mirror camera and automatic cruise control with more safety features to be announced later, and it will go on sale early next year.
I think it looks pretty good. It looks better as a Camaro-inspired crossover than the new Camaro does as just a Camaro.

The front looks okay but everything else is very underwhelming

MORE Pictures Of The 2019 Chevrolet Blazer — WHICH Sibling Does It Take After?








I remember it like it was yesterday.

I was at one of the major auto shows and Agent 001 and I were walking the floor together. Snapping last minute shots and both taking the time to really observe the latest and greatest products.

We were walking past the Audi stand when he pointed to the A8 and said "Why can't they make this [the A8] look like that [the R8]?"

2019 Chevrolet Blazer

At first I laughed and said that's simply not possible. Look at them! And then he explained, no kidding, he means just give it some influence and panache.

Well, it seems like the designers finally have started listening. That's because sport-utility vehicles and sedans are starting to pop more than ever. The latest example is the 2019 Chevrolet Blazer. Looking more akin to a Camaro that's been jacked up and stretched all over, the 2019 Blazer's heavily inspired, inside and out.

Check out MORE shots of the all-new Blazer, below.

No unique powertrain options, unibody, other than looking decent... not sure why to care?

2019 Chevy Blazer: The return of a legendary SUV
New Blazer adds some needed style to the Chevrolet crossover SUV lineup.
Rumors of a new Blazer being in the works have been confirmed with the debut of the 2019 Chevy Blazer today in Atlanta. However, unlike the old body-on-frame Blazer that last graced Chevrolet showrooms during the 2005 model year, the new model is built on a unibody structure shared with the GMC Acadia.
News of the unibody will likely disappoint some fans of the previous Blazer models, but the migration to the more compliant foundation from a full frame is hardly new among SUVs. The Ford Explorer and Nissan Pathfinder have previously made the switch.

A high beltline and larger rear haunches add some sporty appeal to the new Blazer.
Nick Miotke/Roadshow Instead of offering rugged off-road capabilities like the Jeep Wrangler, the new Blazer will instead cater to customers looking for a stylish and versatile five-passenger crossover SUV, which slots between the relatively bland-looking Equinox and three-row Traverse in the Chevrolet lineup. To make more of a visual statement, Blazer designers looked to the Camaro for a little inspiration giving the SUV a wide stance, tall hood, big grille and skinny headlights up front. A high beltline runs along the sides that lead back to the strong rear haunches.
For base-level Blazers, 18-inch wheels will be standard with 20-inchers available. The sporty RS and range-topping Premier will ride on 20-inch wheels or optional 21-inchers. Sleeker and meaner looks on the RS come courtesy of blacked-out exterior accents, while the Premier wears a tasteful amount of chrome for a more premium appearance.

2019 Chevy Blazer looks to the Camaro for design inspiration

The Camaro design cues continue in the cabin with a center stack that borrows heavily from the sports car with familiar climate controls for the dual-zone system and round air vents. Depending on trim level, different accent bits and colors will dress the interior with the RS getting red touches and the Premier offering a two-tone design theme withgalvanized chrome trim.
Other cabin features include a leather-wrapped steering wheel, sliding rear seat, optional panoramic roof and hands-free power liftgate. When it comes to carrying stuff, the offers 64.2 cubic-feet of cargo space with the backseats folded down.
For tech, the latest Chevy MyLink system handles infotainment with an 8-inch touchscreen, Bose audio, 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot and both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities. There's no shortage of smart device charge options, either, with entry-level Blazers featuring four USB outlets, while RS and Premier get six USB ports and come standard with a wireless charging pad. Available safety technologies include adaptive cruise control and rear camera mirror.

Two engines will be offered with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder producing 193 horsepower and 188 pound-feet of torque serving as the base engine. Those looking for additional grunt can spring for a 3.6-liter V6 with 305 horses and 269 pound-feet that offers an estimated tow capacity of 4,500 pounds. Both engines work with a 9-speed automatic transmission in front- or all-wheel drive configurations.
The new 2019 Chevrolet Blazer will go on sale in early 2019 to battle it out with the likes of the Ford Edge, Jeep Grand Cherokee and Nissan Murano. No official pricing details are available yet, but a base price tag in the low $30,000-range similar to its competitors seems like a good bet.

Looks just like most other SUV's out there. They all seem to copy each other.

2019 Chevy Blazer spied strutting on the streets

Our first look at it in natural light




Though Chevrolet has shown us the 2019 Chevy Blazer midsize crossover SUV in carefully retouched photos and under stage lights, we haven't seen it in natural light until now. One of our spy photographers caught a few examples of the new crossover on public roads. They include the top-end Premier model and the more entry-level LT version.

Overall, we in the office agree that the Blazer looks better in its natural environment. The myriad creases are softened ever so slightly, making it look less busy. Also nice to see is that the Premier (seen in white) doesn't look overly bulky with its body color cladding. The LT also doesn't look too downmarket. In fact, it looks pretty much like the RS, but with chrome and smaller wheels.

The 2019 Blazer will go on sale early in 2019. The LT, RS and Premier trims are the ones we know of right now. There's a possibility of another low-end trim like LT also being available. The standard engine is a naturally aspirated four-cylinder making 193 horsepower and 188 pound-feet of torque with an optional V6 making 305 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque. Front-wheel drive is also standard with two all-wheel drive systems available.

2019 Chevy Blazer Packs Excellent Standard Features For $29,995








The all-new 2019 Chevrolet Blazer will be offered in L, Blazer, RS and Premier trim levels, where the base spec ‘L’ version will have a starting MSRP of $29,995.

Chevrolet will begin selling their latest crossover in early January, offering customers a vehicle that boasts a wide stance, tight proportions and a dynamically sculpted profile, not to mention a very diverse trim range.
“The Blazer’s design offers customers a crossover that can exceed their needs, matching their unique personality,” said Chevrolet marketing boss, Steve Majoros. “Blazer sets a new design language for Chevy’s crossover family and extends our momentum into one of the industry’s fastest-growing segments.”
For example, the RS version comes with a sporty, street-inspired look, says the automaker, whereas the Premier delivers a more upscale appearance.
What’s most impressive though is the list of standard features you get even on the entry-level ‘L’ version. Amenities include: an 8-inch color touchscreen, 4G LTE with Wi-Fi Hotspot, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, electronic locking glove box, Keyless Open and Start, Teen Driver, Rear Seat Reminder, HD Rear Vision Camera, dual-zone automatic climate control with rear vents, heated and power-adjustable mirrors, Traction Mode Select, adjustable sliding rear seat, a six-way manual driver seat and 18-inch wheels.

As for additional available features, there is the Panoramic dual-pane power sunroof, advanced twin-clutch AWD system, Hitch View for trailering, automatic heated steering wheel, heated/ventilated front seats, heated outboard rear seats, Rear Camera Mirror, Wireless charging, up to six USB ports, hands-free power liftgate and a suite of active safety systems such Adaptive Cruise Control.
Powering the 2019 Blazer will be a standard 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine with 193 HP (195 PS), although customers can also opt for the 3.6-liter V6 power unit, producing 305 HP (309 PS). Both engines work alongside a nine-speed automatic transmission and feature intelligent Stop/Start functionality.

I think it looks neat, but I don't think it's a Blazer.

Even the S10 based Blazer was okay to me, because it at least maintained the RWD platform. This just seems off.

Agree, front end looks very dodge, everything else looks Mazda.

I think they should have taken more design cues from the 1969 K5s

2019 Chevrolet Blazer Starts From $30k, Tops Out At Almost $49,000









The all-new 2019 Chevrolet Blazer may start at $29,995, but those looking to purchase a high-end model will have to spend much more than that, according to a Cars Direct report.

The Blazer range starts with the ‘L’ trim level, which is indeed priced at a reasonable $29,995 but it’s probable that most buyers will want a little more than what the Blazer L offers.
Sitting above the L in the range is the 1LT, starting at $33,495 including all destination and delivery fees. Like the base model, the Blazer 1LT features a naturally-aspirated four-cylinder engine delivering 193 hp and 188 lb-ft (254 Nm) of torque.
Those looking for more grunt can opt for the Blazer 2LT, priced from $34,495 and utilizing a 3.6-liter V6 pumping out 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque. Buyers can option an all-wheel drive system for $2700.

Next in the range is the Blazer RS, a variant most similar to Ford’s $43,350 Edge ST. On paper, the RS sounds a bargain at $41,795, but that’s because it comes with front-wheel drive as standard rather than all-wheel drive like the Ford. The Blazer RS starting price rises to $44,695 the moment buyers tick the box for all-wheel drive. Another option for the RS is the $3575 Driver Confidence II Package.
The final Blazer offered is the Premier. This model starts at $43,895 and can be optioned with the Driver Confidence II Package also, now priced at $2165. When all-wheel drive is added, this brings the high-end Blazer Premier’s price up to $48,960.
All in all, these prices make the Blazer slightly more expensive than the Nissan Murano and Ford Edge, two of the models those in the market for a new SUV might shortlist alongside the Chevy.
