There are a particular set of characteristics that make up the SUV or sports utility vehicle. There are distinct factors, like size, engine power, and space. Then there are the extras, that are slowly becoming a standard, features like off-road capability, smart safety features, and fuel efficiency. Today, we expect our SUVs to be adventure-ready vehicles that can tackle anything the world has to throw at them. Of the plethora of SUVs on the market, the 2019 Chevy Blazer is an obvious standout.
One glance, and it's easy to see why the latest Chevy Blazer is a popular pick amongst SUV lovers. The exterior is designed to appeal to both those who appreciate the rugged and the sleek. Sizeable, with a robust engine, and fully capable both on and off the pavement, the 2019 Chevy Blazer is a showstopping car that joins a new generation of SUVs.

Today, they are innovative, fuel conscious, and charmingly modern vehicles that offer a wide appeal to all kinds of drivers.

When it comes to engine power, there are certain things you can expect from an SUV, even one that is reasonably compact. SUVs are expected to pack quite a punch when it comes to horsepower and torque, all with the expectation of being able to haul both cargo and passengers with ease. Surprisingly enough the 2019 Chevy Blazer lives up to this expectation and blows it out of the water, all with a highly efficient four-cylinder engine.
This new Blazer comes standard with a 2.5-liter I-4 engine beneath the hood, which offers up 193 horsepower and 188 lb-ft worth of torque. Considering its size, these specs are quite impressive, especially when they can be improved in higher trim levels. Those looking to purchase the brand new Blazer can choose from one of four trim options the L, LT, RS, and Premier. Models installed with the standard I4 engine can expect to earn an EPA-rated 22 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. That said, the mechanics in the 2019 Chevy Blazer can be upgraded to a robust 3.6-liter six-cylinder engine which bumps things up to 308 horsepower and 270 lb-ft worth of torque. While this may decrease gas mileage to 20 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway, it does provide an extra bit of oomph and is bound to satisfy drivers who want their SUVs to have a bit more power beneath the hood.
The 2019 Chevy Blazer also provides drivers the option of all-wheel-drive, with this you can enjoy greater traction as well as versatility should you decide to take your Blazer off the pavement.
As a crossover, the 2019 Chevy Blazer seats five comfortably, and still leaves plenty of room for cargo. While it may be disappointing for drivers looking for something with a little more robust cargo and passenger space, Chevy certainly offers larger options such as the Chevy Traverse and Suburban. That said, the 2019 Chevy Blazer continues to be a sizeable option when compared to competitor crossovers offering 64.2 cubic feet of wiggle room in the rear seats and 30.5 cubic feet of cargo space.
In base models of the Chevy Blazer front seat passengers will find a 4-way manual adjustable seating complete with premium cloth upholstery. Higher trim options take things a step further offering 8-way adjustable seats and the option of seating temperature control.
In terms of cabin noise, the Blazer is relatively silent thanks to Chevy’s active noise cancellation. As a result, both drivers and passengers can enjoy a remarkably peaceful ride from start to finish.
As with many modern SUVs, the 2019 Chevy Blazer comes packed with innovative infotainment and comfort tech. At base models, drivers can take advantage of a dual-zone climate control system, offering more adjustment options for both the driver and passengers. Base model drivers can also expect to find a reasonably sized 8.0-inch touchscreen, 4 USB ports, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto compatibility, a thumping 6-speaker audio system, keyless ignition, and Bluetooth audio streaming. The base model of the 2019 Chevy Blazer takes things a step further by offering in-car wireless internet hardware, giving you the option to create a stable WiFi hotspot straight from your vehicle.
As can be expected, higher trim options expand on the level of technology found in this new Chevy Blazer. For instance, the LT model offers satellite radio, a Bose audio system, heated front seats, and a power liftgate. The Blazer LT trim option can also be equipped with a powerful navigation system, guaranteeing that you’ll never get lost while behind the wheel of this Chevy.
The RS model takes things up another notch offering a heated steering wheel, a power front passenger and driver seat, 20-inch wheels, heated rear seats, an expansive sunroof, and a rearview camera. The 2019 Chevy Blazer RS also provides drivers the option of a 120-volt outlet, giving you the option to power anything from smartphones to laptops while out on the open road.
The trim option that will give you the most bang for your buck is the Blazer Premier. The Premier trim lets drivers take advantage of an 8-speaker Bose audio system, cooled and heated front and rear seats, and power tilt/telescope steering. Chevy expands the options of customizability by offering drivers the chance to add memory seats, a surround view camera system, and wireless smartphone charging. While Chevy has put an increased focus on technology that makes driving easier and more comfortable, they have also installed plenty of smart safety features that utilize cutting-edge automotive technology.
What drivers have come to expect from their car’s safety tech has changed dramatically over the years. In the past, simple things like seatbelts, airbags, and maybe a rear view camera would have been satisfactory. Today, safety technology is expected to do more than just protect you in the event of a crash; it is intended to help prevent a collision altogether. The safety technology found in the Chevy Blazer lives up to this expectation, and in higher trim models dares even to take things a step further.
Base models of the 2019 Chevy Blazer will receive features that may be premium in other vehicles. Hill-start assists and rear seatbelt warnings come standard with the new Blazer models, providing an extra step beyond the basics.
The LT model of the 2019 Chevy Blazer ups the safety game by fitting the crossover with a rearview camera, as well as blind-spot monitors. Blind-spot monitors alert drivers when an object or car is passing through their blind spot in order to avoid a dangerous collision. Rear parking sensors can also be found on the Blazer LT trim option, which can make even the trickiest of parking problems a breeze.
Beyond the LT and L models, Chevy delivers a comprehensive safety package. RS and Premier models can be fitted with features like active lane control, which utilizes a suite of cameras and sensors to avoid the dangerous problem of lane-drift. Forward-collision warnings can also be added to higher trims. Forward-collision warnings alert drivers when they are at risk of colliding with a car or object in front of them. Automatic emergency braking ups the game even further by taking control of your brakes and activating them before a dangerous collision occurs.
No matter what trim option you opt for, the 2019 Chevy Blazer pulls out all of the stops when it comes to safety behind the wheel. When in the driver’s seat, you can expect plenty of visibility, in both the front and rear, giving you significant awareness on the road.
