The ChevroletÂ BlazerÂ is a mid-size crossover utility vehicle (CUV). It is currently Chevrolet's second-biggest CUV, slotting between the compact Chevrolet Equinox and full-sizeÂ Chevrolet Traverse. The current model was introduced for theÂ 2019 model year and represents theÂ fifth generation of theÂ Blazer nameplate, which dates back to 1969. The model rides on the regular-wheelbaseÂ variant of theÂ GM C1 platformÂ shared most directly with the second-gen GMC Acadia and first-gen Cadillac XT5. The long-wheelbase variant of the same platformÂ is shared with the Chevrolet Traverse, BuickÂ Enclave, and Cadillac XT6. The 2019 Blazer flaunts attention-grabbing exterior design, seamlessly integrated customer-focused technologies and superb functionality.Â Many of the exterior and interior design elements are borrowed from the sixth-generation Camaro. The 2019 Blazer range consists ofÂ four trim levels,Â including the base L, threeÂ mid-tier Blazer trim levels (consisting of three LT trims), the sporty Blazer RS and the range-topping Blazer Premier trim.Â New technology offered on the 2019 Blazer includesÂ capless fuel fill,Â HID headlights, LED daytime running lights, and a Cargo Management System.Â Under the hood are two engine options: the base 2.5L I4 LCV and the optional 3.6L V6 LGX. Both motors are mated to the GM 9-speed automatic transmission. Pricing starts at the $29,995. The ChevroletÂ Blazer is built at the GM Ramos Plant by GM Mexico.

Ha, ha! GMA STILL had to put in another picture of the highest trim level and most expensive red Blazer model. lol
Still not buying it because it is Made in Mexico. Time to support American jobs, communities and tax base. We sent out way too much of our manufacturing know-how, tech and jobs, and it came back to bite us in the butt. No more.
We “had to?” We didn’t have to do anything.
The fact is that availability of images and photography of the Blazer is currently extremely limited, since the car hasn’t even launched yet – so we have only a few images to choose from when writing about it. Heck, even the images you see here were taken by our spy team… they’re not official images by any means.
So your feeble attempt at uncovering a conspiracy theory that exists only in your head has failed, once again.
Yup ; stay away from that thing –
Made in mehico !!!-
Buying American not to support America not Mexico ???-
This is what everyone is complaining about !!!-
Yet ; still going on !!!-
That front overhang. Woof.
It’s a little pricey. They should be more in line with the Sorento or Santa Fe considering how weak the base engine is.
And I still won’t even consider it since it doesn’t have a defeat switch for the auto stop/start.
i believe there are a couple of ways to defeat the latest GM auto stop/start function. For example, I believe putting the gear selector in L will keep the engine running. In my Chevy manual, it discusses when the auto/stop-start will not function and one of the parameters is that if the gear selector is in any position other than ‘D’. I have not tried this with my 2017 Malibu because it has the 2.0L engine.
is this the same platform that a new Buick CUV will be introduced? thanks.
There will be a midsize Buick off this platform. Smaller than Enclave, similar to the Acadia:
any idea when it will be unveiled? have an Envision which has been a good vehicle but would like a bit larger but not Enclave size. any Buicks in Detroit? thanks.
No, no idea on unveiling yet. Detroit is a possibility, but haven’t seen anything that would suggest that.
We do know that it will go into production in China in June of 2019, so I expect that will be when it is unveiled for that market.
That doesn’t mean that it won’t be produced in North America… but we don’t have details of local production just yet.
Alex, will the Buick version of Blazer would be called “Rendezvous” once more?. Also since Blazer, Acadia, “Rendezvous” is fwd IMO nex-gen Traverse, Enclave, XT6 should be rwd to combat Explorer, imports, etc….
As of right now, there’s is no indication that Rendezvous will be the name of the upcoming Buick crossover on the C1 short platform.
If anything, the name will follow Buick’s crossover nomenclature, which starts with “En” – like Enclave, Encore, Envision, Enspire…
It is based on the XT5 platform. Shorter version of the Acadia platform.
The Acadia is the same exact platform as the XT5 and Blazer… but with more rear overhang than either of those models.
it is a poor excuse for a blazer it is very ugly all it is its a yuppie magnet because yuppies have no taste or class. GM should have built it on a truck platform with a V8 and 4 wheel drive
I was told that my slip , for my new blazer, has been pulled, so they will start building it this week. Very excited!
One wonders why General Motors has been so secretive with the specifications of the 2019 Chevrolet Blazer as it was a given that the new Blazer was larger than the Equinox which has dimensions of (183″ L x 73″ W x 65″ H) and smaller than the Traverse (204″ L x 79″ W x 71″ H); although one wonders how much smaller will a 3-row Blazer be than a Traverse.
The three-row Blazer “concept” shown in China last month (linked below) measured 194 inches long, so still noticeably smaller than Traverse.
Link to 3-row Blazer concept:
Also, it wasn’t so much that GM was secretive in revealing the specs… but they sure as heck took their time in doing so.
GM Authority readers seem to be avid fans of GM. They give their enthusiastic feedback about GM vehicles. Do you know if the feedback actually considered by GM?
All of us that are not trolls that is Wes!
This is not a 3-row vehicle. It’s strictly two rows with the V6 that was available in the last generation Equinox.
Blazer is most likely going to sell really well.
Sad to see the coupe and sedan segments disappearing.
Gino – sedans and coupe segments are not disappearing. They’re only disappearing for GM due to lack of patience, incorrect and short-sighted decision making.
Where was the lack of patience, incorrect and short-sighted decision making.
Ford’s are already gone, so Ford to was had a lack of patience, incorrect and short-sighted decision making?
Yes, Ford is also marred by the same problem, though for different reasons.
Coincidentally, GM and Ford seem to be the only two iconic automakers who can’t figure out how to turn a profit on cars. Much-smaller Kia, Hyundai, Subaru and Volvo can, but GM and Ford can’t. See something very wrong with that picture?
Coincidentally, GM and Ford are also the only automakers struggling to make it in the automotive luxury segments, despite having stories brands that other automakers will kill for. That’s specifically because of strategic and implementational issues across the organization.
Where was the lack of patience and incorrect decision-making for GM? In no particular order:
1. Removal of Chevrolet from Europe so as not to compete with Opel, only to see Opel two years later. This was a short-sighted, haphazard strategy on all levels of upper and C-level management that killed scale and ultimately resulted in the death of the Cruze, much like it will (likely) result in the death of the Spark, Sonic, and Malibu in due time.
2. Withdrawal of Chevrolet from the mainstream segments in Russia and CIS regions, limiting scale even further. Coincidentally, the Cruze was a top 10 best-seller in Russia.
3. Poor product planning on the front-end for second-gen Cruze: whereas everyone else was moving towards hot, fresh designs that stood out, GM planners decided to make the blandest compact car in the segment, thereby hamstringing the model in terms of the attention and its attractiveness. Toyota can afford to have a boring car here thanks to its reputation. Chevy can’t afford to have a boring car in this segment, and therefore must exaggerate to attract new buyers. But instead of competing, GM decided to pack up and go home because the Cruze – though generally profitable – was not filling the black hole of EV and AV development fast enough. There is also the question of patience: Toyota made a loss on the Corolla for six years when it first launched in the U.S. But it stuck through it, improved the product, its reputation, built a loyal following, and now has the best-selling car in the segment (trading places occasionally with the Civic).
4. Poor product planning in general: the first-gen was hamstrung by not having a hatchback variant in the States. The second-gen got the hatch, but lacked a differentiating model with AWD or a sporty variant. There was zero reason for someone to buy the second-gen Cruze over a Civic or an Elantra.
5. Poor product planning on the back end: the bean counters failed on this one in terms of supplier agreements (back-end contracts that scale prices linearly when demand decreases or falls below certain thresholds). Sources have told me that GM, in its never-ending quest to improve its traditionally horrific relationship with suppliers, set up the D2 Cruze program in a way that offers to pay some suppliers an insurance fee if component orders fell below a certain volume. Well, they fell below that volume, severely cutting into that margins and PPUs. That deal pretty much set up the program for razor-thin margins at certain volumes. Note, that no other automakers seems to have done this.
6. Strategy to invest into AV at breakneck paces: $1 billion sunk to acquire Cruise Automation. Another $500 million sunk into acquisitions for AV-related start-ups. $1 billion A YEAR in direct investment into Cruise AV for who knows how long, with the division being a pure cost center. Meanwhile, the chances of breaking even with the autonomous robo taxi service that Cruise is working on currently seem extremely small.
7. Investing in EV at breakneck paces in a race to become a leader in a very small market, one that will likely get even smaller as U.S. government readies to remove EV tax credits. Meanwhile, scale economies are nowhere close to where they should be to turn a profit.
8. All sorts of mistakes in terms of product planning and marketing, specifically in terms of vehicle positioning. The new Blazer, while a necessary addition to the portfolio, is priced about $4,000 too high for its segment. It has great styling, but so do the new Hyundai Santa Fe and Kia Sorento, among others. Will the Blazer’s styling be enough to make people pay $5,000 more for it over a very comparable, competent and attractive Hyundai Santa Fe? Some will… but many will not. Why even open the door to a rival brand?
9. Not taking advantage of obvious opportunities, such as putting the Buick Envision into Lordstown. The Envision is a crossover (meaning high sales potential at healthy margins/PPU) while Lordstown builds the Cruze (based on a similar D2 platform). There are obvious opportunities to stick the Envision into Lordstown and sell it in North America in serious quantities, compared to the measly 4-5K a quarter that are being sold currently.
10. Need I go on?
Yes, go on.
Exactly. I am glad you called it as it is, Alex.
GM. The Great Betrayal.
If General Motors is moving away from cars like Ford then GM needs to think out of the box with their CUV and begin equipping them like sedans which means a high performance edition of the 2019 Chevrolet Blazer and dropping the 455 hp 6.2L V8 or possibly even the LT4 650 hp supercharged 6.2L V8 because the competition has already begun doing this.
The competition has been doing no such thing. GM will not either as no one wants to pay for that
He may be referring to the Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk or the Dodge Durango SRT…
7.4″ of ground clearance?
You have to be kidding, right????
Another me-too crossover vehicle with no off road capabilities. How many crossovers based on cars does GM need? For me, I would buy a Jeep Grand Cherokee over this vehicle.
I cannot get to the Jeep dealer quick enough
Alex looks like the numbers on the headroom are reversed. I’ve never seen any vehicle that had more head room when the sunroof was added.
Probably correct. Depending on how wide the sunroof is it may be glass over the seats like the Nissan Murano.
I don’t understand why doesn’t GM import all their sedans and keep SUV/Pickup assembly here in the US. Since the sedans are still popular in Latin America, Euro ans Asian markets, just import a few thousand a month so availability can still be maintained rather then giving away the segment to Korean/Japanese manufacturers. We probably only export pickups and the Acadia to Australia. World wide a few Vettes and Cadillacs get exported (mostly to Arab oil nations) as specialty items.
The more I see photos of the new Blazer, the more I like the overall styling, in and out. This vehicle will sell well. I’d just like to see another engine option of around 350-400hp, to better compete with higher end import crossovers.
Ya’ll are smoking doobies about this made in Mexico thing. Lots of great GM cars and trucks have been/are made in Mexico. The thing about Mexico is that just as many, or more GM cars and trucks that are built in the USA are also “exported” freely to Mexico.
So folks are griping about “made in Mexico” and then talk about buying Hyundai or Kia – or even Toyota – cars that are, in some cases assembled in the USA, but owned by companies that are home-based in the countries that won’t allow, or make it difficult for USA built products to be imported there.
I’ve enjoyed numerous GM Suburbans and Saturn VUEs that were made at Silao or Ramos Arispe – and LOVED THEM. And I know that GM – a GREAT USA Company profits from them. Sorry if I sound biased.. I guess I am. Toward GM and toward USA Car Companies that have been major drivers to the US economy and strength for a 100 years.
I plan to order a Blazer in July.
Thant’s nice to know ; my moms hhr is Mexico assembled been good : and my 2017 Silverado is also Mexico assembled hope is good .
I can’t explain why they never have that “new” car smell when from Mexico ???-
Chairman Barra: let’s build a trendy crossover, call it Blazer and make sure it has no headroom so it is more compromised than even a Cruze or Mailibu.
GM Roundtable: Sounds great, but we can only eat out 15K per unit if we build in Mexico.
Chairman Barra: I’m sure Americans will line up to buy the next cool thing in crossover! Why don’t we announce multiple factory closures in America/Canada just before launch to endear us to the people.
GM Roundtable: Can we increase your bonus this year? Genius!
Correct and just what we need, another bland looking crossover in an already crowded market.
In the meantime, Jeep can get $45,000 + for a two door loaded Wrangler Rubicon, it’s what people want, it’s simple, made in Ohio, and I bet they make tons of money on each one.
You guys take a look at all the car facilities in Mexico. Essentially, most of these facilities were previously in Canada and the US. I could also give you a list for China.
