The current-generation Chevy Blazer SUV is named after the iconic Chevy K5 Blazer SUV of the ‘70s, ‘80s, and ‘90s, but it is nothing like it. The K5 Blazer was a high-riding, truck-based, full-size SUV that was more at home on rugged off-road terrain while the Chevy Blazer is an aggressively styled and highly refined midsize crossover SUV that is pleasing to drive on pavement. It is often said that large SUV buyers mainly focus on practicality, utility, and capability, but this is not always so in today’s car market. The 2-row Chevy Blazer is designed to appeal to people who are looking to buy a large SUV for more emotional reasons, e.g. engaging driving dynamics, aggressive styling, and powerful performance. The Blazer hits the nail on the head in each of the above aspects and adds great utility, excellent ride quality, advanced technology, moderate off-road capability, and a wide range of safety features.
The Chevy Blazer was first unveiled by Chevrolet in June 2018 in Atlanta, Georgia and went on sale in January 2019. In Chevrolet’s SUV hierarchy, it has been slotted in between the 2-row Equinox compact SUV and the 3-row Traverse full-size SUV. The Blazer is a front-engine, front-wheel-drive SUV that can also be had with all-wheel-drive, and it rides on the same C1 platform that the GMC Acadia and the Cadillac XT5 ride on.
This Blazer SUV is available in four trim levels, namely the L, LT (offered in 1LT, 2LT, & 3LT sub trims), RS, and Premier. The base L trim level is well equipped, so it offers great value for your money. It offers features and accessories like 18-inch alloy wheels, High-Intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps, heated outside mirrors, a keyless entry system with push-button start, a dual-zone automatic climate control system with rear air vents, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, a 6-speaker audio system, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, and much more. Moving up to the Premier will get you additional premium features and accessories like an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with power lumbar support and memory settings, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, and much more.
