After its bizarre teaser issued earlier today, Chevrolet has taken the covers off the 2019 Blazer. The iconic nameplate is returning on the side of a new midsize crossover SUV that’s based on the GMC Acadia.
“Chevrolet has been at the forefront of each of the major automotive industry trends by anticipating consumer demand and delivering innovative products like Bolt EV, Colorado and Trax,” said Alan Batey, president of GM North America and head of Global Chevrolet. “The introduction of the all-new Blazer builds on that momentum and further strengthens the most comprehensive lineup of crossovers and SUVs on the market today.”
Blazer will be filling the void between the Equinox and Traverse, creating a true three-crossover strategy for the Chevrolet showroom. From a size perspective, the Blazer is nearly identical to the GMC Acadia.
Much like the upcoming 2019 Silverado, the new Blazer is wearing what Chevrolet calls a “bold” design theme that varies greatly based on the trim level. Various trim levels will be available with fairly distinct looks as depicted from the photos.
Feature highlights include:
- Bold styling that features a strong grille and muscular proportions.
- Driver-centric interior and distinctive looks on all models.
- Model range includes sporty RS and up-level Premier models.
- Five-passenger seating with up to 64.2 cubic feet (1,818 L) of max cargo space with second-row seats folded flat.
- Adjustable sliding rear seat.
- Available Chevy-first cargo management system with a rail system and cargo fence.
- Available panoramic dual-pane power sunroof.
- Suite of available active safety features.
- Standard 2.5L I-4 and available 3.6L V-6 engines, each backed by a nine-speed automatic transmission.
- Advanced twin-clutch AWD system available.
- 4,500 pounds (2,041 kg) estimated max trailering with the available 3.6L V-61.
- Available Hitch View feature that helps the driver align the hitch with the trailer.
