The Blazer named disappeared from the Chevy lineup in 1994 when the Tahoe took its place. Now, the automaker is introducing a new crossover with the Blazer nameplate. Similarities between the K5 Blazer and the 2019 Blazer end at sharing the same name. The new Blazer rides on GM’s Chi platform that underpins the GMC Acadia and Cadillac XT5. Gone is the rugged, off-road aesthetic that fans of the original Blazer fanz came to love.
