In the world of SUVs, there's no shortage of new models that seem to arrive every year. This makes the process of separating the wheat from the chaff somewhat difficult for consumers. With so many different makes, models, and styles to choose from, the ideal vehicle that perfectly meets their individual needs might seem hard to find. Instead of wading through the droves of imitators, why not go with what's been tried and true for decades? The Chevy Blazer is a vehicle that upholds consistency in being reliable and effective in providing consumers exactly what they need in an SUV. Finding one and having it become a part of your daily life is easier than you might think. Richard Lucas Chevrolet is the best location for discovering the various options that the bowtie brand has to offer. We're the New Jersey Chevy Blazer dealer that more people here in the Garden State trust to deliver the best service and vehicles that are held to the highest standards of quality.



Finding a vehicle that you can completely place your trust in might seem impossible. And while the SUV boom continues its meteoric rise all around us, many offerings are still relatively new in their respective runs. Even many "veterans" of the class only began their production runs in the mid to late 1990s. The Blazer precedes these pretenders by a considerable amount. First launched in 1969, the Blazer holds a unique position in the history of the SUV as one of the earliest incarnations of the class.

This first version of the vehicle possessed a longevity that was tested thoroughly by events completely beyond its control. Through the energy crisis of the 1970s and the growing need for smaller, compact vehicles, through the flashy 1980s where style replaced substance. The Blazer's first run would wrap up in 1994, around the same time that other manufacturers were just getting their SUVs off the production lines and on the road. The second incarnation of the Blazer was a more compact model and offered a variety of options and advantages to a multitude of drivers who found several uses for the vehicle. The smaller Blazer, along with its sibling, the GMC Jimmy, was somewhat sportier than its previous incarnations and even offered off-road packages such as the ZR2.

Powertrain-wise, the vehicle was somewhat ahead of its time in terms of equipping itself with smaller engines and not the monstrous V8s that were synonymous with many of the offerings from competitors such as Ford. Making use of a variety of four-cylinder and V6 options is standard practice now, but the move spoke to Chevy thinking ahead of the curve and not strictly adhering to trends and convention. Sadly, all things must come to an end, and the Chevy Blazer would be discontinued in 2005. Greatness can't stay dormant for too long, and the vehicle would make a comeback in 2019, this time as a mid-size crossover that was more in line with the needs of the modern consumer. And today, a whole new generation of drivers are blazing new trails in Chevy's iconic SUV. 2023 Chevy Blazer For the 2023 model year, the Chevy Blazer is once again asserting its dominance to maintain its place at the top of the mountain. Competitive priced among rivals such as the Ford Edge and Jeep Grand Cherokee, the Blazer has a new focus on style and performance that far outshines the competition in every sense of the word. With its sensuous curves, jet black grill, and an interior that's modeled after the racing cockpit of the Chevy Camaro and is now anchored by a standard 10.2-inch infotainment center, the 2023 Blazer demands attention and commands


respect. Never before has a family vehicle been more exciting and appealing to the senses. If the exterior design and the interior comfort are not already appealing, just wait until you take a look at what's underneath the hood. Similar to the Chevy Blazer powertrains of old, the 2023 edition comes equipped with two distinct engine types. The standard offering consists of a 2.0L four-cylinder engine with 228 hp. This turbocharged option is still fairly conservative on fuel consumption, as it is rated for up to 22 MPG city and 29 MPG highway. All-wheel drive is also available, helping you tackle slippery New Jersey winters with confidence.For those who crave more performance, the Blazer also comes equipped with an optional V6 engine that possesses a beefy 308 hp. Aside from being quicker on the road, this engine, along with the Blazer's nine-speed automatic transmission, has the ability to tow a maximum of 4,500 lbs. Whether you're in the market for economy or performance, there's a Blazer just for you.
