Owner Reviews of the 2019 Chevrolet Blazer

If some of you are wondering where are all the initial 2019 Chevrolet Blazer reviews from auto publications... its because there aren't any
That's because Chevrolet didn't give af about letting the usual round of journalists have a first hack at it, instead it was us, the people who commit 2-4 years or more to owning a product (and bringing perspective with us from similar products). So, as you can guess the typical round of publication that just read off the press release they're provided and call it a "review" with no real ownership perspective, are up in arms about it, but I couldn't be happier. Aside from bringing back the Blazer, this is another solid move from Chevy! With that being said leave your take on the Blazer.

Consumer reviews are usually far more indicative of the high and low points of a new vehicle, so I think this will play to our advantage. Its styling is certainly a focal point and I think its a breath of fresh air in the sea of mundane crossovers.

I'm more interested in what guys like Matt from the smoking tire would say which of all the journo's i've seen, resonates with owners like us the best.

They should have considered some kind of off road oriented trim, that was more of a homage to the original K5. It's always something they can introduce later, but I think that would have been a good way to gain interest from fans of the previous gen models.

here's some feedback i've been finding, hopefully some of you can relate and comment on where it applies to you:


4/5 Stars
Quote:
"This SUV had a very smooth drive with all the capabilities you would want. I wish that you could get it with more horse power but the 305 dose just fine. its good for towing, trips, or just driving around. Also with a all around mean look you get a lot of compliments."
5/5 Stars
Quote:
The new Blazer is amazing! The look, comfort, speed, and much more is what you look for in an SUV! Very impressive coming from Chevy!
3/5 Stars
Quote:
Lack of power, sluggish off the grip. Design was what really hurt it. I loved the old Blazers but the new design is so ordinary and I exciting. Was really hoping for more out of Chevy. Oh well, Iíll wait and see what new ford bronco has in store when it hits the road.

Interesting that none of those mention pricing, because I feel like that's one of the main areas of controversy. You can get a fully nicely spec'd RDX for less, though I think it is slightly smaller. And what about depreciation?

After reading up as much as possible I had the opportunity to test drive the new 2019 Blazer RS. As a Gen6 Camaro owner I really loved the aggressive styling as well as the interior cues from the Camaro. I will be in the market to replace my Ford Escape in the next year and am anxiously waiting to see what rebates/discounts will be offered.

Depreciation is something that affects every car and its not going to be any more substantial here. How did you find the performance of the RS in comparison to your Escape @Bigd1276 ?

I only got the chance to drive through town. I could notice a lot more low end power and definitely had a better sound than my Escape.

I bet sometime down the road either the Trax will get sportier or a new compact crossover will come along.
The Blazer is great but I have seen performance concerns that come back to its weight.
