An old name for a new car, the Blazer badge returns to the Chevrolet range as a five-seat crossover SUV. The 2019 Chevrolet Blazer takes on the Ford Edge, Honda Passport, Toyota 4Runner, and many more family-friendly vehicles in this popular category. The Blazer stands out with its stylish lines. Its design takes elements of the Camaro's look and successfully applies them to an SUV. It's a head-turner that's also enjoyable to drive, thanks to a suspension that manages to blend comfort with handling agility.
What's slightly less appealing is the base model's 193-hp 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. It lacks the sort of get-up-and-go you'd want in a vehicle this size. That makes the 3.6-liter V6 a more appealing choice. It gives the Blazer strong performance as well as good towing capability. All models come with automatic transmissions and standard front-wheel drive, and all have all-wheel drive as an option. Trim levels start with the L, followed by Blazer (also called LT), RS, and Premier. Within that Blazer trim level are Cloth or Leather subtrims, which describe the differing upholstery as well as a few other equipment enhancements. The RS is more sporting in styling and equipment, while the Premier adds plush features such as heated and ventilated front seats, chrome accents, and Bose® audio.
