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.

Has there been an mention as to whether or not the V6 in the RS variant has been tuned? I don't think many people are going to go for it, if its just some sporty accents that are being added.
There are plenty of SUV's which utilize 4 cylinders effectively. Probably the best example of this is the X1, with its 2.0l turbocharged engine kicking out 228hp.
The Blazer is more of a rival of the Cherokee than it is the Wrangler. We already know that Chevy has gone with street performance over off road capability with the redesign.
