When Chevy launches its all-new 2019 Blazer, the midsize crossover will only be offered with a single suspension.
The only suspension system on the 2019 Blazer is one that is assigned RPO Code FE2 and is described as Suspension, Ride and Handling.
The midsize crossover will not offer any other suspension setup regardless of trim, package or option… at least at launch.
Following A Patten
Though we’re sure that most 2019 Blazer customers will be perfectly happy with a regular suspension system, it’s worth noting that Chevy’s newest crossover is not offered with at least one up-level, advanced suspension option.
By comparison, other GM vehicles that utilize the same GM C1 platform – including the second-generation GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave. Both of those vehicles offer Continuous Damping Control (CDC), a “light” version of GM’s Magnetic Ride Control (MRC). In the case of the Acadia, CDC is offered as a performance option on the range-topping Acadia Denali and on the Enclave Avenir; both are generally very well-liked by owners of vehicles equipped with the feature.
That said, not offering a performance suspension on a Chevrolet crossover is nothing new for GM. For instance, the current, second-generation Chevrolet Traverse does not offer a performance suspension option. In that regard, the 2019 Blazer simply follows that pattern.
Potential Hope For The Future
Despite not offering a performance suspension option for the 2019 Blazer at launch, it’s possible that Chevrolet could add such an option in the future. The question is, will Chevy actually do it?
The 2019 Blazer will launch in early 2019. Stay tuned to GM Authority the latest 2019 Chevrolet Blazer news.
About Chevrolet Blazer
The Chevrolet Blazer is a mid-size crossover utility vehicle (CUV). It is currently Chevrolet's second-biggest CUV, slotting between the compact Chevrolet Equinox and full-size Chevrolet Traverse. The current model was introduced for the 2019 model year and represents the fifth generation of the Blazer nameplate, which dates back to 1969. The model rides on the regular-wheelbase variant of the GM C1 platform shared most directly with the second-gen GMC Acadia and first-gen Cadillac XT5. The long-wheelbase variant of the same platform is shared with the Chevrolet Traverse, Buick Enclave, and Cadillac XT6.
The 2019 Blazer flaunts attention-grabbing exterior design, seamlessly integrated customer-focused technologies and superb functionality. Many of the exterior and interior design elements are borrowed from the sixth-generation Camaro.
The 2019 Blazer range consists of four trim levels, including the base L, three mid-tier Blazer trim levels (consisting of three LT trims), the sporty Blazer RS and the range-topping Blazer Premier trim. New technology offered on the 2019 Blazer includes capless fuel fill, HID headlights, LED daytime running lights, and a Cargo Management System.
The Chevrolet Blazer is built at the GM Ramos Plant by GM Mexico.
