Chevy Blazer Running At An Alarmingly Low 28 Days Supply15
The Chevy Blazer crossover remains in very high demand in the third model year of the current generation. Landed, or on-the-ground, inventory at dealerships is currently running at 28 days, the same as it was in September of last year, GM Authority has learned.
By comparison, optimal supply for a vehicle in the U.S. auto industry is considered to be 60 days. Anything below that – and certainly a timescale of just 28 days – suggests high demand, low supply or a combination of the two.
Supply has certainly been a problem due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, which brought General Motors production to a standstill for two months. But production is now more or less back to normal, yet building enough examples of the Chevy Blazer to satisfy demand appears to be challenging.

Of all General Motors vehicles (other than the Cadillac XT6 crossover and Cadillac CT5 luxury sedan, which are outliers because they were introduced in mid and late 2019, respectively) the Chevy Blazer recorded by far the greatest growth in U.S. sales in the 2020 calendar year.
Blazer sales jumped 63 percent to 94,599 units in the 2020 calendar year, making the vehicle the seventh best-selling Chevrolet model during the timeframe. Without COVID-19, the increase would surely have been greater, as Blazer sales increased by no less than 183 percent during the first half of 2020. All of this suggests that the problem has been caused by high demand rather than low supply.
All examples of the 2021 Chevy Blazer built at the GM Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico which supplies the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Colombia and Middle East markets, have a two-row, five-passenger seating configuration. Another version, built at the GM-Cadillac Jinqiao plant in Shanghai, produces a slightly longer version for the Chinese market. This model is available in either a three-row, seven-seat configuration, or a recently-introduced two-row, five-seat setup.

STILL waiting for an SS version GM! How about realizing this vehicle has draw & interest for a more fun version?
I agree, the success in sales should bring about more performance oriented trim levels, that’s if they can catch up with what’s currently on the waiting list first, overall it’s good to see that this vehicle is doing well in sales.
Chevy Blazer sales is outpacing production, but it would be even better if the Chevrolet Blazer was assembled in the USA instead of Mexico;.
Why would country have anything to do with output?
It doesn’t at all…
President One with Lyric styling would befit our newly elected president who himself owns a stylish ’67 ‘Vette! I noticed the swooping roofline’s gentle slur in the rear quarter windows into the trunk.Looks so much nicer than the tank-like boxy lines of the present limo.
But in these uncertain economic times would the cost rectify a new limo right now?I doubt it would even cross our first executive would approve it.
Noticed some models that have aggressive styling seem to be the ones that are doing so well. The Corvette, the Blazer, to name a few. The Volt started out as just a great concept car, then they whittled it down. But it was still very cool. Now they made the newer model which is even more whittled down from the concept car. Just think if some of these concept cars that people goes nuts about actually came to market.
Folks just cant seem to get enough of foreign made vehicles.
Gm made right call on Mexico as a source for usa vehicles. Biden has already used executive powers to undo a bunch of the trump deregulation. U can hate Trump but the deregulation was good for economy.
Most regulations are there to protect peoples health and safety. Trump piled on debt in a time of peace and prosperity. Trump’s fanning the flames of racism lead to the George Floyd riots and the storming of the capital. During this pandemic he failed to show any leadership, and spoke out against Governors who tried to get the virus under control.
Trump should be stripped of all his wealth and left to wander the country in a burlap sack. Eating only out of garbage cans.
Piled on debt? Obama added more debt than him until this last year when Covid hit and you know, decimated the country/world. Nothing he could have done there, he tried to keep the economy open as although this virus is bad, it isn’t lock down the country for extended periods and close down everything bad. And you are bringing the riots in to this? The same ones that the Dems openly praised and said they needed to keep doing what they were doing as they were burning down their cities? Come on man, try being a little less one sided and reading everything with an open mind and not a one sided view. Dems aren’t good for this country, Trump may not have been the best vocal person and spoke well like Obama, and he did need to shut up and get off twitter, but he was trying to do better for this country. Look at his policies and what he was really trying to do in the country. Keep jobs here, pull us out of one sided deals and reduce our costs incurred in the country by closing the borders, all items that are significantly riving up our debt and costs. We don’t need to be spending money on other countries and wasted programs, keep it here and help our people (not with free crap and everyone gets schooling paid). You may not like him as a person and I didn’t, but that is not why we put him in office. Some of the top business people in the word are dics and unpleasant people, but they get the job done and are successful. Give me someone like that over a career politician that has accomplished literally jack in 5 decades…
Instead, these bigoted enablers continue to make excuses for his treasonous behavior and betrayal of the constitution. They refuse to hold The Fraud accountable. They continue to point the finger “Bu bu but, there were riots during BLM protest too.” “Bu but Obama made a mistake during his presidency too…” It’s hilarious to watch them scramble around the sores Trump inflicted and continue to point their fingers at literally EVERYBODY and EVERYTHING else. Trump was correct when he said he could shoot someone in the middle of 5th Ave and lose ZERO support. THAT’S the kind of people that support that clown. White supremacist monsters. They do not care about what’s morally right, they care about maintaining power, and losing power. It’s sad to watch but Americans aren’t surprised.
Just look at how delusional these enablers are. Commonsense’s comment says “…Dems aren’t good for this country” as he defends a former Republican leader that literally incited a insurrection and attempted coup to overturn our democracy which ended in several deaths including a police officer. But it’s the “dEmS” that “aReN’t gOoD fOr tHiS cOuNtRy” Smh. Absolutely ASTONISHING. Smh. These folks don’t WANT to live in truth, they are choosing to believe conspiracy theories and lies because they don’t like the reality that we live in. They opt for occupying alternative realities that better support their theories and ideologies. One thing is for sure, I don’t care to UNITE with these type of Americans. They can’t be trusted. What’s even worse than The Fraud himself? The supporters and enablers that provided him the opportunity in the first place. Wasn’t Democrats btw. I’m just saying.
You’re a straight up hypocrite. You wanna talk about trump being racist, white supremacy this and that. BUT YOU SUPPORT JOE BIDEN??? Joe Biden is ex KKK. Joe Biden’s mentor was a high ranking KKK leader named Robert Byrd. Joe Biden pushed for a crime bill in 1994 that put HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of minorities in prison for PETTY MARIJUANA CRIMES. Joe Biden is the most disgusting racist piece of sh1t to run for president. Joe Biden said he doesn’t want his children growing up in a jungle with poor black kids. SCREW JOE BIDEN. HE IS THE MOST RACIST PIECE IF SH1T TO EVER TOUCH THE WHITE HOUSE.
I HATE RACISM, AND I HATE JOE BIDEN MORE THAN I HATE RACISM. SCREW JOE KKK BIDEN AND HIS BEST FRIEND ROBERT KKK BYRD.
You wanna talk about racism?? Just go look up the 1994 crime bill Joe KKK Biden and Bill Clinton pushed. Joe Biden is fncking disgusting.
