Chevrolet Blazer

Chevrolet Blazer

Model Years Produced: 2019 to Current

Summary

Perhaps a triumph of style over substance, the reborn Blazer is a sharp-looking thing which Motor Trend even designated the “Camaro of SUVs.” It certainly looks the part, and it drives remarkably well for being caught between a compact and midsize SUV…though being equipped with an optional 308 hp V6 doesn’t hurt things either. The style carries over into the interior too, though unfortunately quality doesn’t – it’s disappointingly cheap for a vehicle whose base price is in the mid-30s. Even so, the Blazer is a fresh take on the boring crossover formula.
