2019 Chevrolet Blazer

2019 Blazer Photos
In segment mostly filled with anonymous kid haulers, the 2019 Chevrolet Blazer stands apart with eye-catching styling inspired by the Camaro. Its driving experience also evokes Chevy's modern muscle car, demonstrating a degree of handling precision not expected for this segment. Certainly, if you're looking for something zestier and more memorable than the segment norm, the Blazer is definitely worth a look. However, its sub-par interior quality and unremarkable space make for questionable value. Some could argue that it also doesn't go far enough to achieve the Camaro-inspired, performance-oriented SUV its styling promises and that Chevy is most definitely capable of. Basically, we think it should be even zestier or just nicer given its price tag. What's new for 2019? The Chevy Blazer is an all-new model for 2019, although it obviously carries the storied name of long-ago Chevy SUVs. Unlike those truck-based ancestors, this one is a crossover based on the same platform as a Cadillac XT5 and GMC Acadia. What's the Blazer's interior and in-car technology like? On the one hand, the Blazer interior impresses with its Camaro-inspired design elements — note the rotary air vents/climate controls in particular — that make it look as special inside as it does on the outside. Unfortunately, the quality of materials used is disappointing given the Blazer's price point. That's especially the case with the Premier and RS trims that can top $50,000 (shown above), but even lower trim levels are no nicer than compact SUVs (Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-5) that cost much less when similarly equipped. Quite simply, the Blazer either needs a lower price or a ritzier interior. At least the Blazer's infotainment offerings are better and more abundant than most. Every version gets an 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, 4G LTE in-car WiFi, OnStar and four USB ports, including a new USB-C port (the small one). That standard touchscreen is GM's latest, which is pretty easy to use with big, clear icons and a sensible menu structure. How big is the Blazer? The Blazer is a midsize crossover, with exterior dimensions that put it in the camp of such vehicles as the Ford Edge and Jeep Grand Cherokee. It's also quite wide, resulting in more shoulder room in the back seat relative the Edge and all compact models. You're more likely to fit three across or fit people on either side of a child seat. However, rear seat legroom at 39.6 inches is only similar to larger compact SUVs like the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4, and it has less headroom. That sleek, low roof will likely result in your hair grazing the headliner, and with the panoramic sunroof, you might even need to slouch or utilize the seatback's ample recline. The back seat does slide generously, making it easy to bring kids closer to those in front or free up extra cargo space. That's a good thing, since its on-paper cargo figures are unremarkable. There's 30.3 cubic feet with the seats raised and 64.2 when they …
