And similar to the Acadia, the engine lineup consists of two options: naturally aspirated 2.5-liter four-cylinder and 3.6-liter V6. Although the Blazer will likely be a capable vehicle and a profitable addition to Chevy's crossover lineup, it is a far cry from the Blazers of old that made the name famous.

The Bow Tie brand choose to launch the Blazer in Atlanta because it is one of the biggest markets for Chevrolet in the USA we are told.

"Chevrolet has been at the forefront of each of the major automotive industry trends by anticipating consumer demand and delivering innovative products like Bolt EV, Colorado, and Trax", said Alan Batey, president of GM North America and head of Global Chevrolet.

Five-passenger seating with up to 64.2 cubic feet (1,818 L) of max cargo space with second-row seats folded flat. Regardless of engine choice, power is sent to the drive wheels via 9-speed automatic transmission. The new Blazer also has a sportier character than Chevrolet's other SUVs. The 1980s brought downsizing to both models, but with its S-10 pickup roots, it was still fully capable off-road until it was discontinued in 2005. A hitch view on the rearview camera will give drivers guidance on connecting their vehicle. Chevy will offer upgraded wheels, up to 21-inchers.

Comfort-open windows - Activated by the key fob, this feature allows all windows to roll down to help heat escape before occupants enter the vehicle. An 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system is standard, as is Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capability. Available features are set to include heated and cooled front seats, a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, an electronically lockable glovebox, a cargo management system, wireless smartphone charging, 6 USB ports, a hands-free power liftgate, and a panoramic twin-pane sunroof.

At its peak in 1996, Chevrolet sold just over 246,000 Blazers. All-wheel drive is also optional and RS and Premier models get a more sophisticated twin-clutch AWD system. It provides excellent performance in wet, snowy and icy conditions, while also providing enhanced stability in dry weather.

Style-wise, the Blazer looks like a cross between an angry 2019 Acura RDX and a 2019 Chevy Camaro. No EPA fuel economy figures or prices have been announced.
