The Blazer is back:
The Chevrolet Blazer returns for 2019 after a 14-year absence. The latest iteration is a sharply styled, two-row crossover slotted between the compact Equinox and full-size Traverse. The Blazer got off to a late start this year, so supplies are still relatively good. Pricing has improved significantly since the model's introduction.
The carryover 2020 Blazer began arriving at dealers last month. The 2.0T model gains two trim levels, 2LT and 3LT. Both are available with a new Redline appearance package featuring a blacked-out exterior. Order guides show the V6 engine as a $500 standalone option this year.
Current offers from Chevy expire January 2, 2020 unless otherwise noted and can vary by region.
Save a bundle this month:
Everyone can now get GM Employee Pricing on a 2019 Blazer. That's in addition to this month's $1,000 cash rebate.
You're sure to make out very well with this promotion. The total savings on the RS model, for example, works out to $5,190.
As for the 2020 Blazer, there's a $1,500 rebate for all buyers.
Solid lease value:
Like last month, you can lease a 2019 Blazer 1LT (with 2.5-liter engine and cloth interior) from $289 for 36 months (10,000 miles a year) with $3,629 due at signing.
The effective monthly cost of this lease is $390, a good value for this price class.
The initial offer on the incoming 2020 Blazer 1LT is $319 a month with $3,639 at signing. With an effective monthly cost of $420, this isn't a good value in our book. Terms will certainly improve once the 2019s are gone.
If you finance:
There are no factory APR offers on the Blazer this month. We do expect Chevy to offer special rates on the 2020s early next year. For now, see your local dealer for a rate quote.
