Spy shots might have caught something that could be 2019 Chevy Blazer. The legendary SUV could make a comeback after 24 years. Back in 1995, Chevy Tahoe replaced it in full-size class, and ever since we haven’t heard anything about this model. However, now it is time for Blazer to appear again.
According to rumors, the crossover will take a position between Equinox and Traverse. Equinox is a compact SUV since the last generation that started with the 2018 year model. It left the empty spot in the mid-size class. Chevrolet will fill it with a new 2019 Blazer. During its history, we could see many different variations, like K5, S-10, and TrailBlazer. Next season it should be only Blazer.
2019 Chevy Blazer Styling
Design of the old Blazer was the highlight of the vehicle. But nowadays, this styling language is not so popular, and companies turn to more aggressive and aesthetic lines. Also, the crossover class is not what it used to be during 1990’s. So, designers will have a tough task. They need to make an SUV that should be modern, but at the same time remind us of the old-school vehicle.
Interior and Accessories
As well as the exterior, interiors of crossovers are not the same anymore. Now, this segment is more comfortable, packed with modern features and gadgets. We believe it is not going to be the problem for people in Chevrolet to create a unique interior. From what we could see on other models, the company manages to keep pace with the latest updates of info, entertaining, and safety systems. Nothing less expects 2019 Chevy Blazer.
2019 Chevy Blazer Specs
This is the tough one. Engineers will have as complicating task as designers. It is still questionable what to install under the hood of the 2019 Chevy Blazer. Equinox is using 1.5-liter and 1.6-liter 4-cylinder units. Turbo-four 2.0-l drivetrain is common one for this SUV and Traverse. Bigger sibling also adds 3.6-liter V-6 mill.
Nevertheless, the previous generation of Equinox had a 2.4-liter I-4, which experts consider as the favorite for the new Chevy Blazer. With it, the crossover is going to be able to deliver 185 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque. Also, the fuel economy of this engine is excellent. It returns over 26 mpg combined, with 33 mpg rating on the highway.

This warm up further gossips about the crossover. Whatsoever, Chevrolet needs a vehicle in mid-size SUV segment. The return of Blazer is what fans of this vehicle are waiting for 24 years.
Being positioned between Traverse and Equinox will give us a hint about the price. So, the 2019 Chevy Blazer will be more expensive than the smaller sibling, which costs $25,000. On the other hand, the bigger one will have more options and larger engine under the bonnet. The price is higher as well. So, we could expect the new Chevrolet Blazer to arrive with $26,000 price tag for entry-level trims.
