OLD vs New: Chevy Blazer

OLD VS NEW: Chevrolet Blazer

When the Blazer was first launched in 1969, it was based on Chevy’s full-size pickup truck, and t was only offered in four-wheel drive. Customers had to pay for additional upgrades like air-conditioning, power-steering, and push-button radio. Customers could also equip these Blazers with a removable top to enjoy the true off-roading feel. The Blazer was later discontinued in 2005 as Chevrolet was getting ready to launch the Equinox.

Almost 15 years later, the appetite for SUVs keeps growing and thus Chevrolet decided it was time to resurrect the Blazer nameplate. Unlike the Blazers of the past, this SUV has a uni-body design and is shaped more like a crossover that can handle mild off-roading challenges. In Chevrolet’s current lineup it fills the gap between the two-row Equinox and the three-row Traverse. This Blazer ditches the boxy design of the past and is much more stylish to attract the buyers of the newer generation. It is only available in a 9-speed automatic transmission but customers can choose between front or all-wheel drive. It will compete with Honda Passport, Nissan Murano, and Ford Edge.
