2019 Chevrolet Blazer Starts From $30k, Tops Out At Almost $49,000

The all-new 2019 Chevrolet Blazer may start at $29,995, but those looking to purchase a high-end model will have to spend much more than that, according to a Cars Direct report.

The Blazer range starts with the ‘L’ trim level, which is indeed priced at a reasonable $29,995 but it’s probable that most buyers will want a little more than what the Blazer L offers.

Sitting above the L in the range is the 1LT, starting at $33,495 including all destination and delivery fees. Like the base model, the Blazer 1LT features a naturally-aspirated four-cylinder engine delivering 193 hp and 188 lb-ft (254 Nm) of torque.

Those looking for more grunt can opt for the Blazer 2LT, priced from $34,495 and utilizing a 3.6-liter V6 pumping out 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque. Buyers can option an all-wheel drive system for $2700.

Next in the range is the Blazer RS, a variant most similar to Ford’s $43,350 Edge ST. On paper, the RS sounds a bargain at $41,795, but that’s because it comes with front-wheel drive as standard rather than all-wheel drive like the Ford. The Blazer RS starting price rises to $44,695 the moment buyers tick the box for all-wheel drive. Another option for the RS is the $3575 Driver Confidence II Package.

The final Blazer offered is the Premier. This model starts at $43,895 and can be optioned with the Driver Confidence II Package also, now priced at $2165. When all-wheel drive is added, this brings the high-end Blazer Premier’s price up to $48,960.

All in all, these prices make the Blazer slightly more expensive than the Nissan Murano and Ford Edge, two of the models those in the market for a new SUV might shortlist alongside the Chevy.

    This looks like it’s aimed at the Ford Edge 193 HP NA 4 cyl hopefully will be a good engine in the long run

    Unless the RS has more power than the 2LT package (at least 40 more), the Ford Edge ST has it beat. It’s also significantly better looking in my personal opinion. While the front end of the Blazer in RS trim looks sharp and is clearly the Camaro of Chevy’s crossover SUVs, the back end is… less than desirable to look at and relatively uninspiring. It’s like they enlarged and mated a Camaro front end with a Mazda CX SUV’s rear end.

    Saw it in person and blah..

    i still think this should have been the Equinox’s new design and the Blazer name saved for an actual Colorado-based SUV.

    • Rob

      Agreed, The Equinox is hideous.

    Tired of America’s love for big overweight SUVs. But besides that I think it looks cool.

    • Dr Bjorn K. Von Strangefingger

      You mean like the Kardasians?

  • Blade t

    Too bad the styling looks like every other crossover and nothing like a Blazer.

    • brn

      That’s my thought. If you’re going to use the name, it needs to stand out (or be BOF).

  • eb110americana

    The Murano starts at $30,800, but without destination and delivery. That means it starts closer to $32K, which the Chevy undercuts by a couple thousand–albeit with a 4-cylinder.

  • Ryan50

    Aholes ruined the name

    • performante

      Who cares? It’ll sell like crazy, regardless.

  • ThatGuy

    i dont know how i feel about this SUV, will it be…..it will grow on me and one day i will say nice, or will i dislike it forever.

  • charlotteharry57

    Aside from the hideous looks (I’ll see it in person at the Auto Show here next month), it’s yet another case of GMs strategy of way overpricing and underequipping. All of the competition noted above has the safety nannies standard. But with the Blazer, it’s the Driver Confidence II package noted above, not even available below the RS. One of these days, brain-dead Americans will figure it out, but for now, anything that smacks of CUV is an instant hit.

  • WalthamDan

    $2700 for AWD? Is that the norm these days? I thought AWD only added $1000-1400 on a vehicle. What’s so special about the Blazer’s AWD package? Does it come with things like heated seats, steering wheel, etc.?

    • Rzrlf

      like that sh*t should be standard, its a “Blazer”

  • TheHake

    What engine does the RS have? It’s a real pity we wont see this in Europe. I really like the styling. Although if you look at what the Edge costs over here it will not be worth it.

  • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

    This thing is absolutely hideous.

    I see no reason to buy this over an Edge, Murano, or Santa Fe. This has nothing appealing, and that base four cylinder is pathetic.

  • SpongeBob99Swell


    Seriously though, it didn’t need the Blazer name at all, give it another cool name. That (not Blazer) seemed like a competitively great vehicle in its own right compared to other Mid-Size Crossovers, but Chevy is pretty much shooting themselves in the foot with the name. Save the Blazer name for what they had the opportunity in reviving to rival the Bronco and the Wrangler.

  • PhilMcGraw

    I just priced an Acura RDX A-Spec trim the other day and even the top of the line RDX is like $47k. So, I can’t imaging spending $2k more for something that isn’t as luxurious or feature laden.

    • no25

      lol but its an Acura..

  • Rocket

    Well somebody’s confident. And soon, that same somebody will be disappointed to learn large rebates are required to move this not-a-Blazer in any significant volume.

  • Yishay

    Absolutely ridiculous to price this vehicle so high.

    Horrible move that will result in an early discontinuation.

  • panda-R

    Is this the new Acura RDX rebadged? I thought badge engineering wasn’t a thing anymore.
