Over a year ago, Chevrolet made heads turn when it revived the Blazer SUV without its typical body-on-frame chassis. The model, instead, rode the same platform as the GMC Acadia and Cadillac XT5 crossovers and breathed new life to a different Blazer.
In its first year on sale, the returning Blazer performed well on the market, selling a total of 58,115 units in the United States. It’s a relatively a far cry from the sales numbers of the Chevrolet Equinox at 346,048 and the Chevy Traverse at 147,122, but the company seems optimistic it could still improve this year.
However, Chevrolet is looking to move more 2019 Blazer units currently on dealership lots throughout the country, particularly the sporty RS trim.
In an effort to sell models in dealerships, Chevrolet is offering a generous price reduction by as much as $5,290.
More precisely, Chevrolet is reducing the price of the RS trim Blazer by $2,290 below MSRP plus $,000 customer cash. Meanwhile, GM cardmembers are also entitled to $1,000 as long as they’ve been members as of January 2 this year.
While a Chevrolet Blazer RS trim with full specifications can reach $50,000, the starting price of the model is only at $40,500. This means a 2019 Blazer RS trim can now be purchased for around $35,210.
Not bad for an SUV equipped with a naturally aspirated 3.6-liter V-6 that makes 308 horsepower and 3270 lb-ft of torque. Moreover, its engine is paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission and is available with either a front- or a four-wheel-drive.
The model also includes 20-inch wheels, a blacked-out front grille, dual exhaust tips, and sportier steering and suspension.
