DETROIT -- Chevrolet is pricing the resurrected 2019 Blazer just under the Ford Edge and Nissan Murano, as the brand diversifies its crossover lineup.
The new two-row, midsize Blazer, slotted between Chevrolet's compact Equinox and large Traverse crossovers, is scheduled to go on sale in January and will start at $29,995, including shipping, Chevy said in a statement Tuesday.
That's slightly less than the Edge, which starts at $30,990 for the 2019 base model, including shipping, and the Murano, which starts at $31,775 for the 2018 base model, including shipping.
The revived nameplate will come in four trim levels: L, Blazer, RS and Premier. Pricing for higher trim levels was not released.
The RS trim level adds blacked-out features -- including a hexagon black mesh with an RS badge -- for a "street inspired" look, Chevy said, while the Premier trim adds a black grille with chrome accents for a more upscale appearance.
The vehicle offers a diverse trim range and a unique design cues intended to "distinguish each of the Blazer's identities," Chevy said in the statement.
A 2.5-liter, 193-hp engine with a nine-speed transmission is standard. A 3.6-liter V-6 engine that produces 305 hp is also available, and it is standard on the RS and Premier models.
"The Blazer's design offers customers a crossover that can exceed their needs, matching their unique personality," said Steve Majoros, Chevrolet marketing director for cars and crossovers, said in a statement. "Blazer sets a new design language for Chevy's crossover family and extends our momentum into one of the industry's fastest-growing segments.
