After a 14-year-long hiatus since the last generation, the 2019 Chevrolet Blazer is definitely causing a buzz. The all-new crossover SUV was scheduled to start production in December and arrive at dealers beginning in either late December or early January. The former circumstance took place, as the Chevy’s new midsize crossover SUV went on sale in late December – managing to close the year with a few deliveries under its belt.
According to the latest GM sales report for the fourth quarter of 2018, Chevrolet Blazer sales totaled 27 units in the United States during the October – November – December timeframe. Since production of the midsize CUV started in December, we can safely conclude that all 27 units were delivered to customers in December.
The fact that consumers are already getting their hands on the two-row midsize crossover shows that GM managed to launch the 2019 Chevrolet Blazer relatively quickly and with notable swiftness – something the automaker has failed to do with previous vehicle launches, such as the last-generation, K2 Silverado and Sierra – both of which were riddled with availability issues for roughly 18 months after their launch.
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.
