Back in November, General Motors pulled the sheet on the new three-row Chevrolet Blazer, dropping cover during the Chevrolet Gala Night in China. Offered as an exclusive product for the Chinese market, the three-row Blazer comes with more seats inside the cabin for accommodating up to seven passengers. Now, we’re taking another look at the midsize crossover with the following GM Authority Photo Gallery.
Anyone familiar with the U.S.-spec Chevrolet Blazer should also recognize this three-row model for the Chinese market. The two vehicles are essentially identical, although the three-row variant utilizes a different rear end and roofline, and is physically longer in order to accommodate the extra third-row seating.
Outside, we see the three-row Chevrolet Blazer draped in the same styling cues as the two-row Blazer. The front end uses thin upper lighting elements and angular lower lamps, while the grille is broad and tall, divided into an upper and lower section by a connecting trim piece that stretches between the upper lighting elements.
The profile is muscular, with styling creases that emphasize the ride height and wheel arches. The window line rises towards the back, emphasizing the rear haunches even more, while up top, we find a set of roof rails.
In back, we see a set of horizontally oriented tail lamps, which come with “dual spear” inner graphics.
As we covered previously, pre-orders for the three-row Chevrolet Blazer are already underway, with the official launch scheduled for Q2 of 2020. Early buyers will receive a special pre-order gift with their reservation. Three trim levels are on offer, including the base Standard, the mid-range Redline, and the top-of-the-line RS.
Output is sourced exclusively from the turbocharged 2.0L LSY four-cylinder gas engine, which is tuned to deliver 230 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. GM’s nine-speed automatic is on hand for shifting duties.
