Alongside the Bronco, the 1969 Chevy Blazer is perhaps the most iconic SUV to grace American roads during the Reagan Era.
Nonetheless, for decades, we have not seen an upgrade of the iconic car until 2019. The 2019 Chevrolet Blazer is a crossover that is meant to fill the slot between the compact Equinox and the Traverse three row.
The Blazer, therefore, is meant to fulfill the needs of consumers looking to get something fancier and larger than the Equinox, but not quite as massive as the Traverse.
The 2019 Chevy generates decent power from its 3.6-liter V6 allowing it put out more than 300HP in addition to being capable of towing up to 4,500lbs. Stylistically, it is quite the looker owing to its Camaro-like design.
The 2019 Chevrolet Blazer is here, but how does it stack up? This article will detail everything you need to know.
2019 Chevrolet Blazer Configurations
This is a five-seat SUV that comes in four trim levels: Premier, RS, LT, and L.
• The L Trim
The L trim is the base model, but it has a lot to offer. This trim gets its power from a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 193HP and 188 pound-feet of torque.
The engine is paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission in addition to a front-wheel drive.
The other perks that come with it include 18-inch wheels, keyless ignition and entry, xenon headlights, dual-zone automatic climate control, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and cruise control.
You will also be treated to four USB ports, Bluetooth, satellite radio, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto, OnStar with a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker stereo.
• The Blazer Trim
This trim comes in three different sub-trims: 2.5L Cloth, 3.6L Cloth, and 3.6L Leather.
The 2.5L Cloth is an enhancement of the base L trim level with features such as rear privacy glass, an adjustable driver’s seat, and a spare tire (rather than just a repair kit).
The 3.6L Cloth derives its name from its 3.6-liter V6 engine which produces 305 HP and 369 pound-feet of torque. Additionally, it allows you to upgrade to all-wheel drive if you want to.
The 3.6L Leather trim comes with additional features such as a power liftgate, black roof rails, leather upholstery, remote start, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, heated power-adjustable mirrors, an auto-dimming rearview mirror.
You will also have the privilege of lane keeping assist, rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, and rear parking sensors.
• The RS Trim
This trim level has all the 3.6L leather configurations.
What it adds to is a sporty look, 20-inch wheels, driver-seat memory settings, a blacked-out front grille, a heated steering wheel, dual exhaust tips, a 120-volt power outlet, an upgraded driver information display.
It also comes with an adjustable cargo management system.
• The Premier Trim
As the name suggests, this is the top-tier trim of the 2019 Chevy Blazer.
Thus, in addition to everything the RS has, it comes a power tilt and telescoping steering wheel, chrome exterior accents, heated rear seats, ventilated and heated front seats.
This trim takes entertainment seriously because you will be treated to an eight-speaker Bose sound system.
Driving and Handling
Two of the features that make Chevrolet trucks among the most beloved vehicles are their strong acceleration and crisp handling. The 2019 Chevy Blazer is no different.
The Blazer does 0-60 mph in 6 seconds, which is a decent pace for a car of that size. Moreover, once it gets going, it delivers good speeds that allow for efficient highway driving.
The Blazer has heavy steering, nonetheless, is to be expected of a car its size. As such, you might find yourself constantly needing to make small corrections in order to keep this SUV on a straight path.
The Blazer takes about 120 feet to stop from 60 mph, which is impressive for a car its size. While it brakes fairly well during normal occasions, the braking sensitivity and overall stability improves dramatically during panic-style braking.
The 2019 Blazer offers one of the most fun and secure handling experiences among its class of SUVs. The agility of this heavy vehicle will allow you to make quick turns without a lot of hassle.
If you are looking for a family SUV, then the Blazer might be what you are looking for. This car sports state of the art seats and a good suspension system that soaks up all the ruts and bumps. This makes for a smooth and gentle ride.
2019 Chevy Blazer Interior
Getting in and out of this SUV is quite easy. However, taller people might have a problem staying at the back due to the sloping roofline.
Most of the car’s controls can be reached easily thus enhancing your experience in the car. Additionally, the car is pretty roomy thus giving a lot of legroom even for taller passengers.
The 2019 Blazer comes with the latest GM’s infotainment center that features a well-placed touch screen, cloud connectivity, and app functions. It also allows for Android and Apple functionality as well as onboard Wi-Fi connectivity.
The driver also gets some aids such as rear cross-traffic and standard blind-spot warning, as well as rear parking and change alert sensors.
Additionally, the rear view camera generates composite images of your car with different views. This especially comes in handy during parking.
Even though the Blazer does not offer a lot in terms of cargo capacity due to its shape, you can maximize that space by folding the rear seats and creating 64 cubic feet of cargo space.
Additionally, you can make use of its good towing capacity (4,500 pounds) to pull your luggage behind you.
Final Thoughts of the 2019 Chevrolet Blazer
While the base L trim level is well-equipped with functional features, you will be doing yourself a disservice if you settled for it. Consider going for the 2019 Chevy Blazer 3.6L Leather.
This trim not only has the standard features such as cruise control xenon headlights, and Apple/Android compatibility, it also has leather upholstery, V6 engine, and heated front seats.
