Added a '19 Blazer RS to My Stable of Automobiles

Just picked up a 2019 Blazer RS in cajun red tin coat. The Blazer is replacing a 2014 GMC Acadia.

Options include the Enhanced Convenience and Confidence II Package and the Sun and Wheels package.

With the addition of the Blazer, my stable of automobiles is now fully in the Chevrolet family. My other Chevys are a 2015 Silverado work truck and a 2017 Camaro ZL1.

I'm a car show enthusiast and participate in 60-80 car shows and cruise-ins per season with my ZL1. I have a website devoted to discussing car shows in Central Ohio (http://carshowtalk.com). The Blazer RS is such a good looking SUV that I may take it to few shows this year.

I'm looking forward to being a member of Chevy Blazer.org. I hope to contribute a lot of useful info regarding the Blazer now that I own one. And I also hope to get a lot of good info from other members on this board as well.

My Blazer is scheduled for full front-end paint protection film in February. I'll be sure to let everyone know how that goes.

Congratulations on the new Blazer and welcome to the forum. Im betting that we will see a lot of current Camaro owners with interest in GM's latest crossover. How are you finding the 3.6 V6 so far?

Can't say the performance of 3.6 in the Blazer is all that much different from the 3.6 in the Acadia. The biggest difference is 9 spd transmission vs the 6 spd in the Acadia. Obviously, the engine in the Blazer doesn't wind out to the extent is does in the Acadia due to the extra gears. The shifts are very smooth and quick in the Blazer.

Great choice of color although I bet it will be very common given how often its being used in all marketing material.

Thanks. My wife wanted a red vehicle. The cajun red reminds me a lot of crystal red tint coat from the 5th gen Camaro.

Took a few photos of it in the outside light.

Looks really sharp, congratulations! Curious to hear how you find the AWD and factory tire setup in the snow.

I originally wanted a lighter color but realize most affordable Chevrolet products look better in darker colors.

Hi, im also new to the community, looking to sell my gas guzzling and heavy 15' Suburban for this more agile crossover. Which PPF brand are you going with? Xpel or 3M?

Apparently 3M is easier to maintain and takes more common to find waxes. Factor that into your purchase.

Beautiful! Congratulations!
Cajun red tint coat is a beautiful color!
Just ordered a Blazer in that color last Friday!
