Whether you were a fan of the original Blazer (or the old GMC Jimmy) or you've been looking around for a new crossover SUV and have come across this new release from Chevy, you'll discover there are all kinds of features and trim options to choose from. The vehicle has come a long way since its origin as a trim on the Chevrolet K5, and you'll love what GM has done with the new model and the features it offers.
The origins of the Chevy Blazer date back to the full-size Chevrolet K5. This SUV was built using the same chassis as the Chevrolet C/K pickup; only it came with a covered rear. The Chevrolet K5 Blazer started off in 1969 and came with several unique features at the time. It even had a special trim known as the Trailblazer, which eventually went on to become its own model line due to popularity, though, Chevy replaced the Blazer with the Chevy Tahoe and stopped production of the Blazer with the 1994 model year.
Chevy did produce an S-10 Blazer between 1983 and 2005, which was based on the smaller S-10 pickup line. This particular Blazer variation did exist along the K5 Blazer for several years, offering a smaller rendition of the SUV for interested buyers. However, that version hasn't been in production since 2005. However, after nearly 15 years off of the market, Chevy decided to bring the Blazer back this year with the 2019 Chevy Blazer.
The 2020 Chevy Blazer is the second model year release of the all-new crossover SUV. There are a number of trims, packages, and drivetrains available, which make it possible to find the exact crossover that works for you and your budget.
