General Motors is reviving the Chevrolet Blazer nameplate that dates to 1969. The 2019 version, with a two-row, five seat layout, will slot between the compact Equinox and the large Traverse in Chevrolet's crossover lineup. The Blazer is expected to go on sale in early 2019. Here's a look at how journalists and analysts are sizing up the newest Blazer.
"Okay, the Blazer is what it is: a mainstream crossover. Here's what to know about it. It is good-looking, with the nose capped by a grille that seems as if it migrated over from the Camaro ZL1, the wheels pushed out to the corners so there are barely any overhangs, and every body panel featuring some interesting sculptural element. Of the now six Chevrolet crossovers and SUVs, this one is the most daring, if such a word can even be uttered in reference to an SUV.
"Of all the other crossovers out there, perhaps the one the new 'Blazer' resembles most is the Lamborghini Urus. You decide which of the two is flattered by that comparison."
