Available in Early 2019

What might as well be one of the most controversial offerings of the year will be hitting showrooms early in 2019. I'm talking, of course, about the 2019 Chevrolet Blazer and it's ruffling the feathers of purists everywhere. That's if you can call a machine with two live axles and a trunk full of Busch Light, shotgun shells, and an old Garth Brooks cassette, pure – which we can. But like so many great things of the 90s, the Blazer has grown up, and it's erring on the side of the crossover. 

So what does that mean? Well, if you're looking for a serious off-roader, this most likely isn't the vehicle for you. However, it'll still get you to the trailhead, it'll get you through the snow, and you can still go trap shooting on the farm. Honestly, where it'll really shine is in the day-to-day, taking friends to the airport, picking up the kids, going on a date, or a long road trip.

 

By now you might be thinking, that's great but Chevy already offers three other crossovers, why should I wait for the Blazer? The answer is simple: design. One of the biggest problems with crossovers is how they look. With the exception of the Mazda CX-5/CX-7 and the Jaguar F-Pace, crossovers have little to no personality. Sure they won't let you down, but they're not going to lift you up -- the Chevy is different. It looks like a Camaro that's ready for family use and the interior actually seems like a nice place to be. 

All we have left to do is just see how it rides, and for that, we're going to Tyrell Chevrolet in Cheyenne.
