The 2019 Blazer is making waves with its bold styling, powerful performance, and great looks. But, today’s stylish, two-row crossover is very different from the early generations of the Chevrolet Blazer. When looking back at the Blazer over the years, it’s clear that the model received many great updates throughout the years that led to the current model’s rugged styling and great off-roading features.
In 1989, the Chevrolet K5 Blazer was truck-based and got its power from the rugged 5.7-liter V8 engine. Paired with a GM four-speed automatic unit, the engine delivered 210 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque. Today’s model has a smaller base with the 2.5-liter LCV I4 engine and pairs its engine with a smooth GM nine-speed automatic gearbox.
The Blazer K5 name was later discontinued, and the vehicle became a smaller SUV that was accordingly renamed to Chevrolet Tahoe. Now, the latest model is a crossover called the Blazer. Today’s crossover meets the current demands for a sporty, modern ride.
