Chevrolet is raising the bar on crossover design with the introduction of the 2019 Blazer. The all-new midsize SUV is the boldest, most progressive expression of the Chevrolet crossover design theme. A wide stance, tight proportions, a high beltline and dramatic sculpting give it a toned, athletic appearance from all angles.
The Blazer’s cabin echoes the bold exterior theme with sporty looks. The design emphasises space and customer personalisation, with a wide range of interior styling choices for the different models, achieved through several color and trim choices. Sporty details include a padded knee area, round air vents and grab handles on the doors.
When it comes to connectivity, an 8-inch colour touchscreen running Chevrolet Infotainment 3 is standard, along with 4G LTE Wi-Fi and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
The new Blazer is powered by a standard 2.5-litre engine rated at 193 hp (143 kW) and 188 lb-ft of torque (255 Nm). A 3.6L V-6 is also available, offering 305 hp (227 kW) and 269 lb-ft of torque (365 Nm).
Both direct-injected engines feature idle stop/start technology and are paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission.
GM’s Traction Select is standard on all models and allows the driver to make real-time adjustments to the vehicle’s driving mode to account for varying road conditions. On AWD models, it also allows the system to be completely disconnected from the rear axle, meaning drivers can opt to have their vehicle operate in FWD when AWD capability is not necessary.
RS and Premier models offer a more sophisticated twin-clutch AWD technology that helps optimise traction for wet, snowy and icy conditions, while also providing enhanced stability in dry weather.
According to GM Holden, there are currently no plans to bring the Chevrolet Blazer to Australia.
