By now, you’ve probably heard about the all-new 2019 Chevy Blazer. Its name is synonymous with a certain legacy and it sports a body style that begs a second look. From the new daytime running lights to the overall curvature of this crossover utility vehicle, two words come to mind when describing the all-new Chevy Blazer: muscular and sleek.
But, looks aren’t everything.
Whichever version of the Blazer you fancy, comfort will be at the forefront of your ride. Active noise cancellation will make for a quieter ride wherever your latest adventure takes you. You’ll also have the GM-exclusive StabiliTrak traction control system, which automatically engages when a loss of traction is detected. There’s nothing like some added peace of mind when you’re taking the road less traveled.
If it’s traction and power you’re looking for, you can opt for the 3.6L V6 engine with all-wheel drive and take advantage of the traction mode selection feature. This lets you set your Blazer’s performance for the appropriate road ahead. This means the Blazer is more than capable of taking you to the beautiful vistas of northern Michigan or the sunny beaches of Florida. Plus, with 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque, it’s capable of hauling your kayaks, trailer or whatever you want to bring to your getaway.
Whichever engine you opt for your Blazer, a nine-speed automatic gearbox will provide seamless shifting of gears as you accelerate and slow down. This ensures a smooth ride whether you’re heading across the country or across town.
New to the Chevy family of vehicles and standard on the RS and Premier models is something that will revolutionize how you organize your cargo. Known as the Cargo Management System, it is composed of a sliding rail system will help you keep cargo from moving around during transit. It is also equipped with cargo tie-downs and a retractable cover/shade to protect precious cargo from UV light exposure. Now, there’s no need to worry about a favorite souvenir from your latest excursion getting damaged in transit!
If you want to utilize the full breadth of cargo space available in the Chevy Blazer, sliding rear seats come standard on all models, letting you expand your cargo space so you can bring all of life’s most important items everywhere you go. And, if you opt for the hands-free power liftgate, loading and unloading that precious cargo will be as simple as a wave of your foot under the rear bumper. Thanks to motion-sensing technology, placing your foot under the rear bumper will activate the hands-free liftgate and automatically open for you — perfect for loading up the Blazer for your next adventure.
We all have things we’ve said we will “get to someday,” so why not drive a vehicle that can make “someday” today? Whatever your ambitions are, the all-new Blazer was designed for those of us that won’t let good enough be good enough. That don’t start sentences with “Wouldn’t it be nice if…” That look forward and say, “What’s next?”
There’s even more to the Blazer than what you see here. The 2019 Chevy Blazer is sleek, equipped and available now. Find a local dealer in Metro Detroit to check it out for yourself!
