NowCar 2019 Chevrolet Blazer LA Auto Show

Chevrolet Blazer at 2018 LA Auto Show

Written By, Jordan R.

The 2019 Chevrolet Blazer sure is an enticing vehicle. What was once an off-road truck, the new Chevrolet Blazer is joining the SUV and crossover craze. Back when we first learned about the new Chevy Blazer crossover in the summer of 2018, there was plenty of information shared. Through it all, there were five pieces of information about the Chevrolet Blazer that stood out, information readers would want to know about the new Blazer prior to its official debut. Now that we’re getting closer, the Chevy Blazer was at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show, and we learned five more bits of info that consumers may want to know.

Quick Review

Let's have a quick review of what we learned about the new 2019 Chevrolet Blazer. For one thing, because this is a 2019 model year vehicle, the Start of Regular Production was set to start by the end of 2018. So far, this is already well underway - check!

We also found out that there were four trims set for the lineup, with one of them being a variable. The trims were known as L, Cloth/Leather, RS, and Premier. The Cloth/Leather trim is the variable, with both trims being the same aside from the upholstery elected for by the consumer. For the powertrain, the Blazer L and Blazer Cloth were powered by an ECOTEC 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine, whereas the Blazer Leather, RS, and Premier will be powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine.

We also learned about competitors and where the Blazer finds a home in the Chevrolet lineup. For consumer comparison, the Chevrolet Blazer is stacked up against the 2018 Ford Edge, 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee, and 2018 Nissan Murano, each with a 4x4 drivetrain. In terms of the already large Chevrolet lineup, the Blazer will find its place between the Equinox and Traverse for a blend of style and versatility.

Five New Bits of Information

During the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show, Chevrolet put the Blazer on display to prepare for its launch. With a starting price currently set at $29,995 (plus destination fee), the Blazer is already much more affordable than its competitors. Now, we know a little bit more about the crossover.

Kia Motors isn’t the only auto brand using styling cues from its successful sports car (Kia Stinger). Chevrolet looked at their Chevy Camaro for inspiration and placed a wide grille, large lower intakes, and narrow headlights on their new Chevy Blazer. Crossovers and large models by Chevy will be introduced to a new style trend going forward.

Crossovers and SUVs are known for their versatility, and the Blazer is no slouch. The twin-clutch all-wheel drive system from the Chevrolet Traverse has found its way onto the Blazer as a drivetrain option for the Blazer RS and Premier trims. This system helps with driving on rough terrain, but is also a part-time all-wheel drive system - that means the Blazer usually rides on a front-wheel drive system unless necessary.

As with most all-wheel drive systems, the Blazer also offers the consumer various driving modes. From behind the wheel, the driver can choose from 2WD, 4WD, Sport, Off-Road, and Towing modes. These modes will affect the vehicle’s throttle mapping, steering, shift patterns, and traction control. Also, side note, the 2019 Blazer has a maximum towing capacity of 4,500 pounds.

Packing It In

The 2019 Chevrolet Blazer also comes with plenty of storage room and a new cargo-management system from Chevrolet. With rails installed in the floor of its standard cargo space, buyers can opt in for a sliding metal bar to manage and organize gear. Or, slide the second row of seating and fold them down to open up 64.2 cubic-feet of cargo space. Plus, for those who like to have a little security, the 2019 Chevy Blazer has a lockable glove box, lockable and unlockable via a code set in the infotainment system.

The 2019 Chevy Blazer is shaping up to be a great crossover. Follow us on NowCar social media for updates on when the new Chevrolet Blazer becomes available for when buying a car online with NowCar.
