2017 Chevrolet Blazer K5 Might Come Back to Production


The Chevrolet Blazer has been one of the top selling SUV’s for five years concurrently, in such a competitive market, that’s no mean feat.

The Blazer name has been around since the late 60’s, although what was the Blazer went on to become the Tahoe some years back.

The new versions of the Chevy Blazer are just that; all new.

2017 Chevrolet Blazer Release date

Very little information has been released by Chevrolet, but industry sources say that we should expect to see the 2017 Chevrolet Blazer on the dealers forecourts at the end of 2016 or possibly very early 2017.

2017 Chevy Blazer Price

It’s the same with the pricing; Chevy haven’t released the official pricing structure, but it’s doubtful that they will increase the base price too much, so we think the Chevy Blazer will start in the region of $40,000.

2017 Chevy Blazer Redesign and changes

As usual, expect to see a redesigned face for the Blazer, this means updated LED lighting, revised front grille and maybe a small change in the hood.
The overall styling looks aggressive and purposeful, it’s a 2-door full size SUV, capable of seating six passengers with plenty of room.

2017 Chevrolet Blazer Specs

Under the hood, it is thought that Chevy will offer two different choices for powertrain, a 3.7 liter V6 coupled to a 6-speed manual transmission, this should produce in the region of 322 BHP and a 4.0 liter V8 mated to an all new 7-speed auto. It’s thought that the V8 should be pushing out close to 400 BHP. All transmissions will drive all wheels, there isn’t a two-wheel drive version.
Suspension has been upgraded, the intention being that the Blazer will make a more accomplished off-roader, but still remaining quiet and comfortable on the road, which is of course where it will spend most of its time.

2017 Chevrolet Blazer Interior

The cabin has been designed to seat six adults, in comfort with good legroom, something that seems to be getting rarer in today’s fuel economy driven market. It will be well appointed with leather upholstery and modern styling. Expect fitted tech to include Bluetooth, Chevrolet MyLink, LCD touchscreen with navigation, satellite radio, USB ports and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Of course, we’ll see the usual safety equipment fitted as standard, this should include lane assist, adaptive cruise control, parking guidance, rear view camera, auto start / stop and auto pre-collision braking (although the auto braking feature may only be on higher trim levels).
