Default The Chevrolet Blazer Is Back As A Crossover





Quote:
After a silly teaser showing a dude in a blazer, the Chevy Blazer is making a comeback next year as a stylish crossover that lacks the body-on-frame four-wheel drive credentials of its predecessor.

The new Blazer will slot between the Equinox and Traverse crossovers in Chevyís lineup. Itíll be a unibody structure with front-wheel or all-wheel drive options, but no serious off-roading chops.

Engines are either a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 193 horsepower and 188 lb-ft of torque or a 3.6-liter V6 with 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque, with only a nine-speed automatic transmission available.

Base Blazers start with 18-inch wheels, with the RS and Premier trims getting 20-inch wheels with the option to upgrade to 21-inches. The RS is the one with the blackened accents on the exterior, as well as red touches inside, and the Premier gets chrome trim and dual-tone seating.

The new two-row mid-size crossover seats five, with an eight-inch infotainment touchscreen with available Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Wi-Fi hotspot with 4G LTE, six USB ports, and optional wireless phone charging, hands-free tailgate, panoramic sunroof and a towing capability of 4,500 pounds with the appropriate package.

RS and Premier models will get a rear-view mirror camera and automatic cruise control with more safety features to be announced later, and it will go on sale early next year.

I think it looks pretty good. It looks better as a Camaro-inspired crossover than the new Camaro does as just a Camaro.

First the Cherokee and now the Blazer name being tarnished.

Next, FCA is going to bring back the Wagoneer as a minivan.

Ford did it with the Exploder first, being based off a Volvo sedan.

Like I said in the anything goes thread, did GM hire Lexus designers?

But yea, I don't care how many they sell, they are trashing that name...

I was one of the first back in the day to jump on the SUV bandwagon before they became a trend. I had full size and then many S-platform variants over the years, then back to Tahoe's and Suburban's. Now I want another sedan and they're going to all be gone because of this craze.

The difference is the new Cherokee can still hold it's own offroad.

Looks like another bullshit uninspiring crossover that's going to be driven be soccer moms sitting in the left lane on Randall and 59. Regardless of the name.

Had both of those above, several of the S-10 variety. Had zero issues taking it off-road.
