The Chevrolet Blazer has remained a mainstay of the midsize SUV market by providing durability, utility and, especially last year with the newly introduced Trailblazer, a touch of luxury appointments.

ABS brakes automatically sense when a tire has stopped rotating under extreme braking, and will modulate the brake pressure to allow the tire to rotate. This increases the vehicles ability to turn while braking.
Front-impact airbags for the driver and passenger have been designed to protect the head during a frontal crash.
The vehicle is equipped with an ignition disable device that will prevent the engine from starting if the correct original manufacturer key is not used.
