Globally, the manufacturers of SUVs have been struggling for years to distinguish themselves from one another, looking for the top edge; an ideal size, specs, and features that will push their competitors to the rear. In this constant quest for the most polyvalent advantage, Chevrolet made a home-run by bringing a mythical name back in the game: the 2019 Chevy Blazer, which is expected to put some competitors in this ultra-competitive segment in an awkward position.
Naturally, this version of the 2019 Blazer has nothing to do with the model of the 70s built on a truck chassis with rigid axles in the front and rear and a V8 that pumped gasoline to an impressive rhythm.
This new Blazer is built on a monocoque platform, identical to that of the GMC Acadia and the Cadillac XT5. Chevrolet already has five crossover vehicles and SUVs ranging from small Trax to Equinox through the Traverse and Tahoe to the vast Suburban. In terms of format, the 2019 Chevy Blazer slips between the Equinox and the Traverse. It’s a reasonably small 5-seater niche between the compact and mid-size and Chevrolet targets models like the Edge at Ford and the Murano at Nissan.
Aesthetically, the 2019 Chevy Blazer is successful. The front is adorned with a grille that seems to have been inspired by the Camaro, the wheels being pushed to the outside corners, there is implicitly no projection, and each body panel is equipped with an interesting sculptural component.
Chevrolet points out that the 2019 Chevy Blazer offers the width of a Traverse and the length of an Equinox, which gives it a lot of visible presence. Among the versions accessible, the RS model is the most audacious and the one that offers the most sporty look with its unique grille and two-tone colors. The offer includes a basic version with or without an all-wheel drive as well as the True North and Premier; both delivered as the RS Series 4 RM.
A Utility Vehicle With Style
The 2019 Chevy Blazer is brand new, and with its two rows of versatile seats, its size fits just about every need. Carved and elegant, its usefulness is seen inside and outside. Featuring a standard 3.6L V6 engine and TI for the RS and Premier models, the Blazer is the sporty mid-size SUV perfect for all your activities. Since 2015, Chevrolet has offered the fullest and most modern range of crossovers and SUVs; in early 2019, the all-new Blazer will be added.
One of the security features of the Blazer is an electronically locked glove box activated by the car’s valet mode. According to Chevrolet, this is a first for the brand, and it offers enough space to store a small handbag.
Available options comprise a heated steering wheel and heated/ventilated front seats that automatically operate according to weather conditions, power windows that can be folded down with the key to let warm cabin heat escape and seats heated rear.
In terms of connectivity, the 8 “color touch screen is standard, as is the 4G LTE Wi-Fi technology (with a 1-month trial or 3GB of data) and compatible with CarPlay. Apple and Android Auto.
The RS and Premier models can be equipped with adaptive cruise control and a rear view mirror with a camera, while a hands-free power liftgate is standard on the RS and Premier models. Induction charging is also available. Optional technical and comfort/convenience groups include a trailer hitch guide system that uses the rearview camera to indicate to the driver the alignment of the hitch and trailer. This guarantees a maximum towing capacity of 2,041 kg with the V6 engine.
In the sportier RS version, the interior has touches of color in the trim and along the dashboard that is both surprising and stylish. The less flashy Premier version is closer to the finish of an Equinox.
