2019 Chevy Blazer Packs Excellent Standard Features For $29,995

The all-new 2019 Chevrolet Blazer will be offered in L, Blazer, RS and Premier trim levels, where the base spec ‘L’ version will have a starting MSRP of $29,995.

Chevrolet will begin selling their latest crossover in early January, offering customers a vehicle that boasts a wide stance, tight proportions and a dynamically sculpted profile, not to mention a very diverse trim range.

“The Blazer’s design offers customers a crossover that can exceed their needs, matching their unique personality,” said Chevrolet marketing boss, Steve Majoros. “Blazer sets a new design language for Chevy’s crossover family and extends our momentum into one of the industry’s fastest-growing segments.”

For example, the RS version comes with a sporty, street-inspired look, says the automaker, whereas the Premier delivers a more upscale appearance.

What’s most impressive though is the list of standard features you get even on the entry-level ‘L’ version. Amenities include: an 8-inch color touchscreen, 4G LTE with Wi-Fi Hotspot, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, electronic locking glove box, Keyless Open and Start, Teen Driver, Rear Seat Reminder, HD Rear Vision Camera, dual-zone automatic climate control with rear vents, heated and power-adjustable mirrors, Traction Mode Select, adjustable sliding rear seat, a six-way manual driver seat and 18-inch wheels.

As for additional available features, there is the Panoramic dual-pane power sunroof, advanced twin-clutch AWD system, Hitch View for trailering, automatic heated steering wheel, heated/ventilated front seats, heated outboard rear seats, Rear Camera Mirror, Wireless charging, up to six USB ports, hands-free power liftgate and a suite of active safety systems such Adaptive Cruise Control.

Powering the 2019 Blazer will be a standard 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine with 193 HP (195 PS), although customers can also opt for the 3.6-liter V6 power unit, producing 305 HP (309 PS). Both engines work alongside a nine-speed automatic transmission and feature intelligent Stop/Start functionality.

    It just looks like they copied the CX-5.

    • StrangerGP

      and gave it an ugly front

    • Rocket

      I see more RDX than CX-5.

      • ksegg

        I heard SUV’s now are like Rorschach test’s now. They’re really all the exact same, but we just see what we want to see. Fact.

          I think you meant to type “Opinion” at the end of your comment.

  • MarkoS

    This probably should have been the Equinox to begin with and the heritage in the Blazer name saved for a Colorado based SUV. GM seems to be having a relapse to its pre-bailout corporate culture.

  • MayTheBestCarWin05

    This thing is gonna be a hit. Plus. It’s the first GM interior that I think genuinely looks good.

    • Nordschleife

      I actually think GM interior get a bad rap. I personally think Ford interiors are less desirable (looks wise) than GM interiors.

  • no25

    I agree with what’s been said above: this should have been the Equinox and the Blazer name should have been saved for a new SUV. I also do not understand the need for this car to have the same interior as the Camaro; it really does not work in my opinion.

  • LJ

    This thing has a better Camaro front end than the Camaro.

    • SkyBill40

      No doubt.

      • Bash

        Absolutely.

    • Bash

      Best comment for the day.

  • SkyBill40

    Not bad, Chevy. Not bad at all. The interior is a huge step in the right direction.

  • wonderdallas
    • Ryan50

      Every crossover looks just like another. The c pillar could be from that stupid tiny toyota.

      • LJ

        It’s always been that way though. Styling trends come and go and everyone jumps on board with what is popular with consumers. 70’s/80’s cars all looked the same.

        • Cool guy

          True, but the latest styling trend is ugly, guess everyone loves the toyota/nissan mutated look?

          • LJ

            Styling is subjective.

    • agreed

    • dumblikeyou2

      LOL, no one copies Hyundai.

  • Rocket

    The interior looks nicer than Chevy’s recent offerings. But then I thought the same of the Denali and Avenir trims of the Acadia and Enclave, too, until I experienced them in person. I’ve learned not to trust marketing photos.

    I am glad Chevy will leave the NA V6 on the menu. I’d prefer to see the 2.0T as the base engine, but I suspect the performance would be too similar to the V6 to justify it.

    Now about that name …

  • charlotteharry57

    So, where are all the safety nannies that are standard on all of the major competition? Hidden in the Premier’s available options, no doubt. I wouldn’t call that excellent features for the money. And then you have to look at it, daily. The Pontiac Aztec is laughing in its grave.

  • Ryan50

    When I hear “blazer” and “excellent standard features” I think:
    – 4×4
    – v8
    – locking diffs
    – skid plates
    – body on frame
    – very few electronics

    • SkyBill40

      What we get instead is something that won’t compete with Ford’s soon to be reimagined Bronco, which will likely have many of those very features.

      • Ryan50

        I’m reallly hoping Ford doesn’t screw that up like chevy. I’m actually expecting to do just a crossover. If they actually make something that can go off road I’ll be surprised.

        • LJ

          Why would you be surprised? They make the Raptor.

          • Ryan50

            It seems like companies just care about money now. They also have to deal with emissions stuff. The raptor is their flagship that gets them attention.

          • LJ

            Companies have only ever cared about money. That’s the point of business. The one’s that sell the best products make the most money.

          • Ryan50

            Yeah but they seem to care more about it now. Afraid of losing. In the past, cars- in a design sense- were very different. Different design language. I could name the brand that every old car belongs too without a problem. Now, they all look extremely similar, like the same person designed them all. They play it safe.

          • LJ

            Every 70’s/80’s car looked identical. Just out of curiousity, how old are you?

          • Ryan50

            15. To me they look pretty different. Not sure why.

    • LJ

      So you think of 80’s/90’s technology.

      • Ryan50

        Yeah but that technology can be made really good. And that stuff still outperforms other stuff in offroad.

        • LJ

          It does?

          • Ryan50

            Yup. Typically more reliable and/or easier to repair. Independent suspension is more comfortable and better cornering, but I’m talking about rock crawling or general off-roading. Locking diff is a must. Body on frame usually has more strength where you’d need it for the flexing of off road.

          • LJ

            This is based on what? Your opinion?

          • Ryan50

            Facts.

          • LJ

            Cool. Which facts?

  • Mike anonymous

    I do like it, and I think it’s quite a nice design, but to be completely honest I’d rather pay an extra $4k and upgrade to a Lincoln MKC (which is a much nicer SUV than some may believe,.. also (fun-fact) it does not share a platform with ford, instead it shares a platform with the LandRover RangeRover Evoque).

    Although this is nice, I would personally spend my money on something else (with a bit more luxury, better features, and that may likely last longer). BUT again, This Blazer is a good vehicle from what I’ve seen so far.

    • designer_dick

      The Evoque’s LR-MS platform is a heavily revised version of Ford’s EUCD.

      • Mike anonymous

        I know. Ford and Land Rover (since they used to be owned by Ford) shared a lot of things. I just wanted to mention it, I felt like people might try to say the MKC was “just a better Ford Escape” (meaning they just re-used the body). Your right, but I Just thought it was a cool fun fact to put in there.

    • Joe E

      Isn’t Blazer more MKX-sized since it’s going up against the Edge?

      • Mike anonymous

        Yeah, but the MKX costs a bit more, and I personally am not a fan of it’s styling, especially after they gave it a (in my opinion, lazy) facelift and changed the name to “Nautilus”. The MKC is only a few more $k’s above the Blazer, hence why I’d rather get it. But you do make a fair point.

      • Stephen G

        It doesn’t matter what size it is…it’s about what it cost. Why would anyone buy a Blazer (I4) when they could get a Traverse (V6) for the same price?

    • dumblikeyou2

      That’s not saying much for Ford’s “luxury” brand.

      • Mike anonymous

        why do you say that?

  • botornot387

    looks good only in the RS trim. The other trim looks ungainly. Interior does really look good, i am assuming also an RS trim. The V6 is antiquated though. Should have had a turbo 4. GM has some decent ones in their stable.

  • Dennis Scipio

    I think Chevy should make a 3 door version of the Tahoe or the Silverado and call it the K5 Blazer. Though I’m liking this design too.

  • JBsC6

    Really good looking in bright red with RS trim. Ill definitely test drive one as it becomes available to decide if i want to own one. Good looking in RS trim! Well done

  • Marty

    Why make a Chevrolet look like an Opel if they wanted to get rid of Opel?

    • Stephen G

      Because Saturns were so popular

  • Stephen G

    I’m not sure how this fits into the lineup. Is this replacing the Traverse? Base price is about the same.

    • SpongeBob99Swell

      Between the compact Equinox, and the Traverse is a full-sizer.

      If only this wasn’t called the Blazer, I’d appreciate it so much more than you expect….

  • SpongeBob99Swell

    I would’ve liked this if only it wasn’t called the Blazer!…

  • Darren Bratton

    Why didn’t they make it a 2020??

    • Mike anonymous

      Maybe they have a face-life/update in the works for 2020 already.

      (I hate to say this, but the fact that it (a face-life/update about a year after the vehicle release) could actually be a possibility is absurd in todays automotive market,.. in my opinion at least).

  • Perry F. Bruns

    I know how useful traction control is, but why can’t we have a friction control option?

    • Ryan50

      It’ll be so underpowered it won’t need TC

  • TheBelltower

    Looks good!

  • diesel_vdub

    It looks nice and I’d be tempted to consider it, until the base models show up in droves in the rental fleet making the entire lineup look cheaper and destroying resale value.

  • ErnieB

    Japan wants their design back!

  • erly5

    I think this looks great. Just a pity it won’t be coming to the UK.
