2019 Chevy Blazer – Chevrolet is developing a new passenger SUV to bridge the gap between the Equinox compact and the medium-sized Traverse. The SUV is expected in 2018, as a model of 2019, and according to Automotive News (the required subscription) Chevy plans to relaunch the Blazer Vehicle Name.
The new spy shots confirm what we already knew: Chevrolet attaches the Blazer nameplate to a front-wheel drive architecture. The next medium-sized cross has been detected with a Nissan Murano, one of the many CUVs the Blazer will face when it reaches the market.
The spy shots also seem to show two levels of blazer cut: one with relatively pedestrian bits and one with more blinged pieces. The more mundane prototype had smaller wheels and circular exhaust tips, while the other had more sharp wheels and angular exhaust tips.
The 2019 Chevy Blazer will occupy a place between the recently reduced Chevrolet Equinox 2018 and the Chevrolet Traverse 2018 elevated. The strategy was intentional to make way for this medium-sized blazer, which will more effectively address the trio Ford Escape, Edge, Explorer.
Powertrains should include the same 194-horsepower 194-horsepower 1.5-liter V-6 and 310 horsepower V-6 options offered in GMC Acadia.
The automotive news released a similar report last year, according to which the Blazer would go on sale in 2018, but this time it predicts it will be presented as a model of 2019.
