Miami Lakes Automall 2019 Chevrolet Blazer

Update: The Chevrolet Blazer – Don’t Call it a Comeback

Miami Lakes Automall 2019 Chevrolet Blazer

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.

Basics of EVs, PHEVs and Hybrid Vehicles + Green Chevy Models

hybrid-evs-miami-lakes-chevy

Last week we discussed the 2017 Chevy hybrids, PHEVs and EVs, but all of that can seem like a lot of “talk” if you don’t really know the differences between each of those systems or the benefits to owning a “greener” vehicle. In addition to just saving you money in annual fuel costs, vehicles powered by alternative fuels also have fewer emissions and a new way of measuring fuel economy.

First, it is important to understand the difference between hybrids, PHEVs and electric vehicles.

A hybrid is a vehicle that can run on battery, gas, or a combination of both. They are usually equipped with a gas engine, electric motor, and battery.

Chevy’s available hybrid is the Chevy Malibu Hybrid. You can search out Chevy Malibu inventory here.

A plug-in electric hybrid, or PHEV, is equipped with a gas engine, electric motor, and battery. Like a hybrid, a PHEV can also run on only electric, only gas or a combination of both, but the battery in PHEVs is larger so it can power the vehicle on electricity much longer than hybrids, but the larger battery needs to be plugged-in to be recharged.

Chevy’s available PHEV is the 2016/2017 Chevy Volt. You can search our Chevy Volt inventory here.

An electric vehicle, or EV, runs purely on an electricity that is supplied by a battery. It needs to be plugged-in to be recharged. Read the rest of this entry >>
