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 healthy. Pricing has improved significantly since the model's introduction.
The carryover 2020 Blazer has started arriving at dealers. 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 December 2, 2019 unless otherwise noted and can vary by region. It's possible Chevy will add incentives for Black Friday weekend.
Steady cash off:
Once again, every 2019 Blazer comes with a $2,750 rebate for all buyers.
The initial rebate on the incoming 2020 Blazer is $1,500 — more than we expected at this early stage.
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.
Low APR + cash:
Instead of the MSRP discount on a 2019 Blazer, Chevy is offering 1.9% financing for 60 months, or 2.9% for 72 months. The deal comes with $750 bonus cash.
We expect APR promos on the 2020 Blazer to start this winter.
