The folks over at GM Authority have gotten their hands on some early details on the different trim levels that will be available on the 2019 Blazer. According to the site, the Blazer will be offered in four different versions including: the L base model, the second level trim called the Blazer, the sporty RS and the top end Premier.

The L will be powered by a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine and be available only with front-wheel drive.

The second-tier Blazer can be had with that same engine, which delivers 193 hp, or with a 3.6L V6 generating 305 hp. Buyers can also choose between the front-wheel drive and an all-wheel drive system.

As for the sportier, more dynamic RS trim, it is offered only with the V6, while offering the same choice of FWD or AWD drivetrain. For this version leather seats will be included standard.

Lastly, the top-end Premier variant will be powered by the V6 engine, and offer the same FWD/AWD choice to buyers. Leather seats will also be standard on this trim.

Take note that Chevrolet says the Blazer will have a maximum towing capacity of 2,040 kg, when equipped with the V6 engine.

300hp should be more than adequate to get the Blazer moving. I do wonder what the difference in fuel economy will be like between the 2.5 and 3.6. I feel like the 4 cylinder is going to have a tough time powering something this large/heavy.
If they were going to settle on a 2.5l engine for the base model, they should have at least made it turbocharged. 193hp doesn't seem like nearly enough for a vehicle of this size.
Considering the significant issues and problems that are currently plaguing the new JL, I think it would be quite easy for consumers to be swayed to alternative options. Namely the upcoming Bronco, which Ford has already indicated will focus on off road capability.
