2019 Chevrolet Blazer: sporty, Camaro-esque look for the new CUV/SUV
Plus a long list of cabin amenities
The Chevrolet Blazer is back in a modern reinterpretation meant to stand a chance in one of - if not the most lucrative auto market segments.
We won't insist too much on design as the photo gallery should do all the talking, but we will mention that the new Chevrolet Blazer features HID headlamps plus LED DRLs and LED taillights. Wheels-wise, the choices range from standard 18-inch aluminum pieces to 21-inch rims.
The entry-level Chevrolet Blazer relies on a 2.5-liter L4 Ecotec engine pushing out 193 hp and 188 lb-ft (255 Nm) of twist. As an option, customers can get a beefier 3.6-liter V6 good for 305 hp and 269 lb-ft (365 Nm). Optionally, customers can get a twin-clutch all-wheel-drive setup.
Both engines adopt stop/start tech and are married to a nine-speed automatic transmission. Chevy also says that the Blazer V6 can pull around 4,500 lb (2,041 kg).
While Chevrolet isn't disclosing a lot of details here, we're told that the Chevy Blazer lineup will include a sporty RS model and an upscale Premier version.
Cabin-wise, Chevy mentions a plethora of features including an electronically locking glove box, heated steering wheel, heated and ventilated front seats, key fob-operated power windows, wireless smartphone charging and six USB ports.
On the infotainment front, the new 2019 Blazer offers an eight-inch screen running Chevy's Infotainment 3 software that's compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
The new 2019 Chevrolet Blazer goes on sale in early 2019, with extra info and prices expected to surface around that time.
