GM Authority has uncovered the trim levels that Chevy will offer its all-new 2019 Blazer when it launches in the beginning of 2019.
In all, there will be a total of four general trim levels and seven specific ones, as follows:
- L (1L0): includes 2.5L I4 LCV engine with FWD only and cloth seats (retail order types only)
- Blazer, comprised of three LT-level trims:
- RS (1RS): includes 3.6L V6 LGX engine with FWD or AWD and leather seats
- Premier (0HD): includes 3.6L V6 LGX engine with FWD or AWD and leather seats
Though the L trim level continues to represent the base model and the RS and Premier represent the two range-topping trims, the mid-level “Blazer” trim differs from other new Chevy product we’ve seen over the years.
The move is rather interesting, since the practice of obscuring a trim level with the name of the vehicle is typically reserved for base models. For instance, the base trim level for the Buick LaCrosse is simply referred to as “LaCrosse”. The same holds true for the Buick Regal Sportback, TourX, Encore, Envision, and Cascada; notably, the Enclave is an exception to this, with the base model carrying the “Preferred” designation.
In any event, Chevrolet’s decision to not make the LT trim forward-facing explains the lack of the LT badge on the hatch doors of final validation vehicles, such as the one pictured below.
It’s also worth noting that if one wants all-wheel-drive in their 2019 Blazer, then they will need to opt for the V6 six-pot, since the base 2.5L four-banger will only be offered in conjunction with FWD.

About 2019 Blazer
Chevrolet re-introduced the Blazer name for the 2019 model year as an all-new crossover utility vehicle (CUV). Based on the regular wheelbase version of the GM C1 platform shared with the GMC Acadia and Cadillac XT5, the 2019 Blazer is a midsize crossover that slots between the compact Chevy Equinox and full-size Chevy Traverse.
The 2019 Blazer flaunts attention-grabbing design, seamlessly integrated customer-focused technologies and superb functionality, with the model range including the sporty Blazer RS and Blazer Premier trims. The new technology offered on the 2019 Blazer includes capless fuel fill, HID headlights, LED daytime running lights, a Cargo Management system, and much more.
The midsize crossover will be made at the GM Ramos Arizpe plant and goes on sale in the spring of 2019, slotting between the compact Equinox and full-size Traverse.
