The all-new mid-size SUV reaches the Mexican market to complete Chevy’s utilities lineup. In fact, with the arrival of the 2019 Blazer, Chevrolet now offers the widest and most varied lineup of utilities in the industry, starting with the subcompact Trax to the full-size Suburban.

“The arrival of the all-new 2019 Blazer in Mexico is a reflection of Chevrolet’s spirit of innovation,” said Francisco Garza, Vice President of Sales, Service and Marketing of General Motors de Mexico, in a statement translated from Spanish by GM Authority. “The 2019 Chevrolet Blazer anticipates the demand of our consumers by offering a medium SUV with style and versatility.”
The 2019 Blazer arrives in Mexico in a configuration different from that offered in the U.S. The first major difference is the name of the equipment levels. In Mexico, the new Blazer will be sold in three versions – Tela, Piel, and RS. For some reason, the local marketing team elected to replace the L and Premier monikers with Tela (Spanish for cloth) and Piel (Spanish for leather), respectively.
Another big difference is that the 2019 Blazer will be offered exclusively with the 3.6L V6 LGX engine in Mexico, leaving out the 2.5L I4 LCV four-cylinder that serves as the base motor in North America. The 3.6L V6 engine features an engine auto Stop-Start system that can not be disabled and is mated to the new GM 9-speed automatic transmission. The duo generates a maximum 308 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque.
The three versions of the 2019 Blazer in Mexico will exhibit their disruptive and innovative design with 20-inch wheels, which in the RS model have an exclusive design combined with black bowties. Ten exterior colors will be available.
Meanwhile, the new Blazer’s equipment stands out thanks to impressive levels of technology and connectivity. Among the most striking features are six USB ports, a wireless smartphone charger, rear camera mirror, an 8-inch touch screen running the Chevrolet infotainment system, a digital instrument panel with an 8-inch color configurable display, panoramic roof and Base audio system with eight speakers.
The 2019 Blazer will be available at all Chevrolet Mexico dealers starting February 15th with the following base prices:
- Tela: $639,900 pesos ($32,900 USD)
- Piel: $693,900 pesos ($35,700 USD)
- RS: $759,900 pesos ($39,150 USD)
