2019 Chevrolet Blazer 009(1)

The Chevy Blazer is Back!

Last week in Atlanta, GA, Chevrolet introduced the rebirth of an iconic nameplate - the all-new 2019 Chevrolet Blazer. The U.S. hasn’t seen a new Blazer since 2005, and despite its familiar name, it’s an entirely different vehicle. No longer a boxy, body-on-frame truck-based SUV, the new 2019 Blazer is a sleek and sporty 5-seat crossover.

Chevy didn’t take the retro styling route with the Blazer – the new version has a modern, yet very familiar, silhouette. With a high beltline and “floating” roof, it shares many design cues seen across the segment. The Blazer features a bold and sporty design and isn’t unattractive, but there’s not one ounce of nostalgia associated with the Blazer’s new look.

Available in three trims (Blazer, sporty RS, and luxury Premier), the new 5-seat crossover fits into Chevy’s crossover lineup right in between the Equinox and Traverse. The RS model, with blacked out wheels and badging and a sinister Corvette-inspired black grille, especially wowed us. We loved that things were just as clean and sporty inside the cabin, with red accents in the dash around the air vents and shifter.

The new Blazer has a lot to offer, even if nostalgia is off the menu. All the modern day luxuries can be had: panoramic sunroof, heated steering wheel, heated/ventilated front seats, hands-free power liftgate and wireless charging. And for those looking for a vehicle that can accommodate their toys, upgraded Blazers can be equipped with both Hitch Guidance (helps align the hitch to a trailer by showing the center line on the rear-vision camera) and Hitch View (displays a top-down view of the trailer that makes it easier to hitch without a second person to assist). Families will even be more at ease in the Blazer with adjustable sliding rear seats and a new cargo management system that keeps the storage space organized with a rail system and cargo fence.

We weren’t able to drive the new Blazer just yet, but for those who are most curious about what’s under the hood, the Blazer comes equipped with a standard 2.5L I-4 engine paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission. There is also an available 3.6L V-6 engine that can also be had with all-wheel drive.

Pricing and more specific information about the Blazer will be available closer to its launch date in early 2019.

About the Chevrolet Blazer

The Blazer is Chevrolet's answer for the competitive mid-sized SUV segment, but with a lower-than-average starting price. SUVs are by definition expected to be versatile and offer owners with a myriad of uses: hauling stuff, getting to work every day and driving through the woods on a weekend excursion. The Blazer has put an emphasis on this versatility with a clever interior that can be reconfigured, along with a ton of technology aimed at both making occupants more comfortable and at helping owners use the various utility features of the vehicle.
