The Chevrolet Blazer is coming back for 2019

Last night I was able to attend the ultra exclusive reveal of the Chevrolet Blazer in Atlanta at The Fairmont.  The five-passenger crossover comes in three trim levels including the sportier and blacked-out RS and the more upscale Premier, both with optional 21-inch wheels instead of the standard 18s. Chevy tried to give each trim a distinct look with changes to the grilles and trim pieces.

The base engine is GM’s 193-hp, 188-lb-ft 2.5-liter inline-four, and buyers can opt for the 3.6-liter V-6 that generates 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque. Both are mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission and have stop-start technology. There are no plans to add a hybrid.
Also optional is all-wheel drive including a twin-clutch all-wheel-drive system on the RS and Premier trims. The Blazer can tow up to 4,500 pounds with the V-6. Opt for the Hitch View to accurately back the hitch up to the trailer.

I'm sure buyers will appreciate a padded knee area, round air vents, and an available panoramic dual-pane power sunroof. There is an automated heated steering wheel and automated heated/cooled front seats while the second row seats fold flat, slide 5.5 inches, and adjust. You can use the key fob to roll down the windows and let the heat out before getting in the vehicle. There is an electronic-locking glove box and a new cargo management system, standard on RS and Premier, with rails and cargo fences to keep gear in place. The liftgate is hands-free.

For connectivity there is an 8-inch touchscreen and 4G LTE Wi-Fi. It’s Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible. Outlets are well positioned above the rubberized wireless charging mat. Inside there is nice contrast stitching and accents on the vents and shifter. The center console has a glittery black glossy finish in the Premium.

The 2019 Blazer goes on sale in early 2019
