The all-new, 2019 Chevrolet Blazer will offer three different exhaust outlet treatments from the factory, giving buyers a few different options when it comes to that one all-important aesthetic feature. Each of the three different designs is tied to different trim levels, however, meaning there’s no chance to step up to a nicer exhaust tip treatment without spending more on extra features and equipment.
Even at the base end of the 2019 Blazer trim hierarchy, the midsize CUV gets a dual-outlet exhaust with polished round tips poking out underneath the rear bumper, standard on the Blazer L and LT (1LT, 2LT, 3LT) trims. Moving up to the hotter-looking 2019 Blazer RS brings a dual-outlet exhaust with polished rectangular tips, again hanging beneath the bumper. At the top end, the 2019 Blazer Premier also boasts polished dual rectangular tips, but unlike on the less-expensive models, these tips are integrated into the rear bumper for a cleaner, more upscale appearance.
Needless to say, we don’t imagine that any of these different 2019 Blazer exhaust treatments will yield stronger performance. Peak power and torque output will be solely dependent upon engine choice, with a base 2.5-liter I4 Ecotec LCV engine providing up to 193 hp/188 lb-ft, and GM’s 3.6-liter V6 LGX engine – available on the RS and Premier models – furnishing as much as 305 hp/269 lb-ft.
Both engines are mated to GM’s new nine-speed automatic transmission, and front-wheel drive will come standard, with AWD available as an option.
The all-new, 2019 Chevrolet Blazer will go on sale in the U.S. early next year, with a starting price of $29,995, including destination. For all the latest Chevrolet Blazer news, stay tuned to GMAuthority.com.
