We have known for a while that the 2019 Blazer will start from $29,995 in base L trim. With the online configurator now live, we can dig a little deeper into the full pricing bracket and how it compares to rivals and other models in GM’s lineup.

While the entry-level model starts at a reasonable sub $30k, there is a huge jump in MSRP as you step up to the RS and Premier trim levels. The RS AWD starts from $44,695 and the Premier AWD has been set at a staggering $46,795. Loaded up with additional options we could see a purchase price that encroaches $53-54k.

When comparing the Equinox Premier to the Blazer Premier, there is nearly an $11k disparity between the two. It’s only a few thousand less than a BMW X3 and several grand more than the Acura RDX A-Spec.

Perhaps a better indication of price would be leasing rates, and those can vary from month to month. A higher MSRP doesn’t always equate to a more expensive lease. We also expect that GM will be offering all kinds of discounts and incentives to help maintain sales, as the novelty of the Blazer begins to wear off.

I'm a bit skeptical about how others will perceive it value especially as they move up trims. Chevrolet still isn't known as a "Performance Brand"

Sure the pricing is aggressive on the high end, but no more so than what we are seeing with other new crossovers. I just worry about how closely its been slotted to the Traverse. Only real reason for going with the Blazer is if you prefer the new styling.

Not everyone wants/needs three rows of seats. Most of the active safety features on the Traverse are also restricted to the higher trim levels.

You're not giving it enough credit. Aside from anything with a V8, the Blazer is the first time we're seeing yet another sporty SUV/Crossover from GM.

I doubt that anyone would be cross shopping BMW's and Acura's with the Blazer, even if they are similar in price in top spec. I agree that most people will probably just lease, as cars are being swapped out every few years now.

At best from Chevrolet i've seen cross shopping happening with the Tahoe but its a classic formula you can't find anywhere else (unlike the Blazer)

A lot of new owners will probably be coming from other bowties like the Equinox or Traverse. This is imo a better looking crossover from Chevy and I'm sure in top spec its much more engaging to drive.

Nothing wrong with staying within a brand that has served you well in the past. Chevy would be wise to offer some kind of incentives to newcomers to make the transition less daunting.

I just don't think its the right move to make when so many new models are coming out.
Ford has the edge overall in a more developed performance division but GM is showing they're willing to put up a fight (Bison)
