The SUV market is about to heat up with Chevy’s new entrant, the 2019 Blazer. Chevy fans will recognize the revived nameplate, which will now be used for the SUV slotting between the Chevy Equinox and Chevy Traverse.
The 2019 Chevrolet Blazer will be powered by a standard 2.5-liter inline-four engine that cranks out 193 horsepower and 188 lb-ft of torque, but drivers will also be able to opt for the available 3.6-liter V6 engine, which generates 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque and enables the Blazer to two up to a whopping 4,500 pounds. Each engine will be paired with a nine-speed automatic gearbox.
“The Blazer has attitude,” remarked John Cafaro, executive director of Global Chevrolet Design. “It looks commanding on the road, while fulfilling the promise of versatility at the heart of every Chevy crossover and SUV.”
That attitude includes athletic sculpting, a wide stance, a bold grille, and unique exterior lighting, which is consistent across all trim levels. However, each trim level has its own unique design stamp. The range-topping Premier trim gets plenty of chrome while the sport RS trim boasts blacked-out elements.
The new 2019 Blazer will comfortably seat five, but it’s also great for moving a lot of cargo. With the rear seats folded, the Blazer offers up to 64.2 cubic feet of cargo space.
