The introduction of the all-new 2019 Chevrolet Blazer has further strengthened Chevrolet’s comprehensive lineup of crossovers and SUVs available on the market today. Sitting between the Equinox and Traverse, the 2019 Blazer will offer unique design elements on each model, appealing to customers seeking distinctive styling and fine utility.
With its wide stance, tight proportions, a high beltline and striking sculpting, the 2019 Blazer is the most progressive expression of the Chevrolet crossover design theme. Each model in the lineup offers a unique look with distinct styling to suit different customers’ tastes, including unique grille appearances, additional bright chrome on the Premier trim or a blacked-out appearance for the Blazer RS.
A powerful front end featuring a strong grille, athletic hood lines and low-placed HID headlamps distinguishes all models. The design also features a distinctive lighting execution that separates the headlamps and LED daytime running lamps.
Long, lean and sculpted body sides lead to a rear end highlighted by LED-illuminated Chevy-signature dual-element taillamps, dual exhaust outlets and an integrated tailgate spoiler. The Blazer also offers a range of stylish wheels, starting with standard 18-inch aluminum rims and expanding to available 21-inch wheels on the RS and Premier.
Inside, the Blazer’s cabin echoes the bold exterior theme with sporty good looks. The crossover is designed to offer occupants seamless connectivity, intuitive controls and a host of convenience features that help make the drive more comfortable.
The new Blazer also offers a Chevrolet-first Cargo Management System, standard on RS and Premier models. It features a rail system and cargo fence to help secure smaller items by dividing the cargo area.
Powering the new Blazer is a standard 2.5L I-4 engine rated at 193 hp 255 Nm. A 3.6L V-6 is also available, offering 305 hp and 365 Nm. Both direct-injected engines feature intelligent stop/start technology that seamlessly shuts off the engine when power is not needed, based on a variety of driving factors, and both are paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission.
Traction Select is standard on all models and allows the driver to make real-time adjustments to the vehicle’s driving mode to account for varying road conditions. On AWD models, it also allows the system to be completely disconnected from the rear axle, meaning drivers can opt to have their vehicle operate in FWD when AWD capability is not necessary. RS and Premier models offer a more sophisticated twin-clutch AWD technology that helps optimize traction for every condition.
The Chevrolet Blazer will arrive at U.S. dealerships in early 2019. Additional details and pricing will be announced closer to the start of production.
