2019 Chevrolet Blazer

The 2019 Chevrolet Blazer Has Arrived

The moment has finally come — the 2019 Chevrolet Blazer is officially here. During the Chicago Auto Show earlier this year, the iconic Blazer nameplate made its comeback, and it’s better than ever. The 2019 Blazer is a crossover vehicle that is the perfect combination of sporty and practical. It will come with two engine options. The first is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder that puts out 193 horsepower and 188 lb-ft of torque. For the second engine option, you will find more power from the 3.6-liter V6, which produces 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque.

So Many Features

Beyond the Blazer’s powerful performance, though, lays a slew of features. This boldly designed crossover offers the most up-to-date technologies, including Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, a built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, and SiriusXM® satellite radio. It also has a range of driver-assistance technologies, including Lane Departure Warning, a rearview mirror, Blind Spot Monitoring, Forward Collision Warning, Pedestrian Detection, and a 360-degree camera.

Power To Haul & Tow

When it comes to cargo hauling, the Blazer also stands out from the competition. It can haul a maximum of 64.2 cubic feet of storage — and you can do so in a number of configurations. The Blazer’s interior can be configured to suit your cargo needs, whether you need to simply slide the rear seats forward — or backward, for more passenger legroom. You can also utilize the available Flexible Cargo Partition to help keep things organized.

You can even use the available floor-mounted rail system or Horizontal Cargo Net to keep everything from groceries to gear secure as you’re on the go. Stop by Dale Earnhardt Chevrolet near Hickory, NC to test-drive the 2019 Blazer for yourself.

And we made a host of changes to make tasks easier.”

Even More Towing

Not only can the Silverado HD tow more, but it is also wider, longer, and taller. It has five trim levels to choose from – Work Truck, Custom, LT, LTZ, and High Country — and also has 22 available cab, bed, chassis, and driveline configurations. With these options, you can easily get the pickup truck that’s just right for your needs. You will also have two engine options to choose from. A 6.6-liter V8 engine is standard, putting out 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque.
