The Chevy Blazer: Back to the Beginning

It’s been fifty years since the Chevrolet K5 Blazer made its debut with the 1969 year model as an answer to vehicles like the Ford Bronco, Jeep Cherokee, and International Scout. It was built on the same frame as the full-sized K5 Chevy trucks and easily out-sized the competition, giving the power and off-road capability of a Chevy Truck with enough room for up to 5 passengers.

Here at Jeff Gordon Chevrolet, we’ve been dreaming of the Blazer to make a comeback for a while and were starting to think it’d never happen; That is, until Chevrolet dropped this major teaser this morning of a man sporting a fashionable sport jacket… A blazer!

We’ll be honest; We were very perplexed at first and actually thought the post was a mistake. The people at Chevrolet assured that we were in for a surprise and once the light bulb went off, we haven’t been able to contain our excitement.

General Motors ceased production of the Blazer with the 2005 year model and although we love how far efficient crossovers like the Equinox and Traverse have come, we’ve been longing for a rugged off-roader to be added to Chevy’s SUV lineup. According to Chevrolet, the special event is happening tomorrow, June 21st, 2018 at 7PM EDT so we’ll definitely be following the news and posting updates here as soon as its available!

In the meantime, get nostalgic with us! Take a quick look at the first Chevy Blazer brochure courtesy of OldCarBrochures.com below and let us know in the comments what your favorite feature was or tell us about the fond memories of your family’s Blazer growing up!
