Less than 24 hours ago, Chevrolet unveiled the all-new 2019 Blazer crossover at a private media event in Atlanta. GM Authority was in attendance to bring you live coverage of the event to experience the new midsize CUV first hand, and now we’re bringing you a video recap of the live reveal.
The live reveal video features Alan Batey, who has the dual role of being in charge of GM North America as well as of the Chevrolet brand globally, as well as Mike Pevovar, who is in charge of the exterior design for the all-new 2019 Blazer. Perhaps the most exciting part of the unveiling, though, is when the sheet is pulled off the Blazer – perfectly synchronized to the beat drop of the dramatic music (at the 1:10 mark).

About 2019 Chevrolet Blazer
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 crossover delivers bold styling, with a strong grille and muscular proportions. All models feature distinctive looks and exterior design personas, with the model range including the sporty Blazer RS and Blazer Premier trims.
The cabin features a driver-centric layout, while providing seating for five passengers. The rear seat slides back and forth, increasing rear seat legroom or cargo space, as needed. A maximum of 64.2 cubic feet (1,818 liters) of cargo is available with the second-row seats folded flat. A Chevy-first cargo management system with a rail system and cargo fence helps organize cargo and keep them in place. A panoramic dual-pane power sunroof is available. A suite of advanced GM active safety features is available.
Customers have the choice of two gasoline engines – a 2.5L I-4 LCV and a 3.6L V-6 LGX. Both motors are mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel-drive is standard, and an advanced twin-clutch all-wheel-drive system is available.
The 2019 Blazer features a maximum towing rating of 4,500 pounds (2,041 kg) with the available 3.6L V-6 engine. An available Hitch View feature helps the driver align the hitch with the trailer.
The 2019 Blazer will arrive at U.S. dealerships in early 2019. Additional details and pricing will be announced closer to the start of production.
