The Chevrolet Blazer was one of Chevrolet’s most popular models when it was first introduced, helping to usher in America’s love of SUVs. Now, it is making a comeback for the 2019 model year. The following is a preview of the 2019 Blazer so you know what you can expect.
For starters, the Blazer has a completely new, sophisticated look in place of the old boxy design. The Blazer will sit in the lineup between the Equinox and the Traverse.
“The Blazer has attitude,” said John Cafaro, executive director of Global Chevrolet Design. “It looks commanding on the road, while fulfilling the promise of versatility at the heart of every Chevy crossover and SUV.”
Just like other Chevy SUVs, the Blazer will be available in multiple trim levels. However, each trim will come with unique styling elements to set them apart from each other. For example, the range-topping Premier trim will have chrome details, while the sporty RS model will come with blacked-out features.
Standard under the hood of the Blazer will be a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, which supplies 193 horsepower. For more power, there will be an available 3.6-liter V6 with 305 horsepower. With this engine, the Blazer will be able to tow up to 4,500 pounds.

Drivers who live in cold climates already know what freezing, thawing, and refreezing can do to roads. New potholes pop up once the snow finally melts away. Potholes can cause significant damage to your vehicle over time, so it’s in your best interest to avoid them whenever possible. Here are some tips for surviving pothole season from us here at LaSorsa Chevrolet Buick!
The easiest way to survive pothole season is to simply be alert while driving. Keep your eyes looking at the road and slow down or go around potholes. There’s nothing worse than a bump and loud clunk that signifies you hit a pothole hard. Hitting a pothole at low speeds will significantly reduce the impact it has on your vehicle.
Maintaining proper tire pressure can protect your car from damage when going over potholes. Underinflated tires may rupture or burst when the vehicle hits a pothole. In the same way, overinflated tires can take damage from potholes as well. Maintain the manufacturer-suggested tire pressure for best results.
Do Your Part
Help reduce potholes in your area by reporting them to the proper authorities. After all, a pothole can’t get fixed if those in charge of repairs don’t even know it’s there!
