Chevrolet is joining in on the crossover utility vehicle (CUV) fun with the revamped 2019 Chevy Blazer. Traditionally designed as an off-road vehicle starting back in the 1960s, subsequently downsized in the 1990s as the S-10 model and effectively discontinued in 2005, it’s no small feat that the Blazer was overdue for a comeback. Diehards will decry its reincarnation as a crossover vehicle, departing from its off-roading roots, however, the new Chevy Blazer is a car made for this era. Inspired by the design lines of the also newly refreshed Camaro, the Blazer is a crossover that wants to hit the ground running against other vehicles of its class – exploiting its precise balance of power and modern looks.

Ditching its old body-on-frame construction platform, the new Blazer opts for a unibody construction platform – more suitable for its reincarnation as a road-friendly crossover. Slated to bridge the gap between Chevy’s current lineup of Equinox and Traverse vehicles, the 2019 Blazer will give the public an exciting option between performance and stylish looks.

The Blazer will be powered by a standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine clocking in with 193 horsepower, or in the case of the RS version, it will be powered by an optional 3.6-liter V6 engine able to generate 305 horsepower. Both engines will feature a standard nine-speed automatic transmission; front-wheel drive is offered as the standard drivetrain unless you’re interested in the ultra modern twin-clutch all-wheel-drive system, that is also available.

The wait is almost over – in only a few more months the new 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 will be out and ready to drive. The new pickup truck will have new and exemplary features, including a bigger and stronger bed and also a powerful, yet, fuel efficient engine. To add to those amazing improvements to the luxurious interior and entertainment system is definitely something to get excited about.

Each 2019 Chevy Silverado will have bigger and better truck beds. These beds are made of steel to make sure that each bed can hold as much weight as possible and be as durable. In fact, this new bed can hold one and a half times the amount of strength of its predecessor, making it that much more awesome. The bed is also strategically designed as two pieces.

The reason for this is because of the conservation of space – Having the bed made of two pieces saves weight and makes for a 23 percent increase of space for the bed. With that being said, there is an added amount of almost seven inches of floor width space. For convenience, there is a button on every key fob of the vehicle to open and close the tailgate, and another great and easy option is to press a button to do the same for opening the tailgate of the bed from within the cabin of the vehicle.

Just because Chevrolet has one of the largest model lineups on the market offering everything from trucks to sedans to sportscars, doesn’t mean Chevy doesn’t spend time to make sure each of their products is top-of-the-line. Every model Chevy produces is meant to be one of the best models in its class, and that’s always apparent with Chevy trucks.

Just recently, two Chevy trucks earned awards. The 2018 Chevy Colorado ZR2 was named Four Wheeler’s 2018 Pickup Truck of the Year, which is the first time the truck has earned the award. Additionally, Kelly Blue Book recognized four Chevy models for their excellent resale value. The 2018 Chevy Silverado and 2018 Chevy Tahoe were both given the title as Best Resale Value in their class and KBB.com ranked the 2018 Chevy Colorado and the 2018 Chevy Silverado in the Top 10 for Best Resale Value.

Chevy Trucks

Chevy is currently celebrating its 100th year in the truck industry. Chevy’s truck legacy began in 1918 with the 1918 One-Ton and 100 years later, the Chevy truck lineup includes the light-duty Chevy Silverado 1500, the heavy-duty Silverado 2500 and 3500 and the mid-size truck, the Chevy Colorado.

Chevy Colorado

While the Silverado trucks have been around for decades, the Colorado is the newest to join the lineup. The Chevy Colorado was introduced in 2002 and production was halted after the 2012 model year, and then the Colorado returned to production lines in 2014. Ever since the Colorado’s return it has been earning awards and experiencing great sales. The Colorado is a versatile truck that offers consumers a fuel efficient, five-passenger pickup truck option that has enough towing power to take care of a variety of hauling tasks.

The Chevy Colorado is currently available in four trims, the Colorado WT, Colorado LT, Colorado ZR2 and the Colorado Z71, and there are three engine options. The 2018 Colorado ZR2 (the trim named Four Wheeler’s 2018 Pickup Truck of the Year) is celebrating its first year of production. The Colorado ZR2 trim is designed to be an off-road truck and it has all of the equipment to handle any type of terrain.

The Colorado ZR2 is available with two different engines, a 3.6-liter V6 engine and a 2.8-liter turbo-diesel engine. To give the Colorado ZR2 better off-road capabilities of other mid-size pickup trucks on the market, the Colorado ZR2 has a ground clearance of 8.9 inches, which is two inches more than the ground clearance on other Chevy Colorado trucks. To protect important truck equipment from rocks, water and other types of debri that might damage the truck when off-roading, the Colorado ZR2 is equipped with front and rear locking differentials, as well as protective rock sliders and enhanced bumpers.

Chevy Silverado

The Chevy Silverado 1500 has consistently been one of the top three light-duty pickup trucks in its class. The Silverado 1500 is available in three cab options and in six different trims, the Silverado 1500 WT, Silverado 1500 LS, Silverado 1500 CS, Silverado 1500 Custom, Silverado 1500 LT, Silverado 1500 LTZ and the Silverado 1500 High Country. When the Silverado 1500 is equipped with the NHT max trailering package, it offers best in class max towing of 12,500 pounds.

One major reason consumers like the Silverado 1500 so much is because it is more than just a strong truck. The Silverado 1500 includes safety, tech, entertainment and convenience features that aren’t typically priorities by other truck manufacturers. The Silverado comes standard with a rearview camera, six airbags, the Teen Driver feature, and aero active shutters.
