The 2019 Chevrolet Blazer is an all-new midsize crossover. If the Blazer name seems familiar, Chevy used the Blazer name before, most recently for a truck-based SUV that was retired in 1999. The new Blazer is a crossover SUV that shares a platform with the GMC Acadia. The Blazer takes its place between the smaller Chevrolet Equinox and the three-row Traverse at dealerships like the Smelterville Chevrolet dealer.
You can’t help but notice the new Blazer’s bold exterior styling. According to Smelterville Chevrolet, the Blazer’s a grille and styling are evocative of the Chevrolet Camaro. The body panels feature exciting sculptural elements with flowing lines, and the wheels have been pushed out to the corners.
