SAN DIEGO -- The 2019 Chevrolet Blazer isn't for those looking to relive adventures in their K5 Blazer or wanting an alternative to the Jeep Wrangler.
It's for anyone looking to move from a car into a crossover without sacrificing driving characteristics or for empty nesters seeking to downsize from a three-row crossover or SUV with a V-6 or V-8 engine.
The vehicle is more Camaro than SUV, despite the Blazer name. And it's definitely much less Equinox than expected.
The resurrected SUV-turned-crossover handles well -- particularly the RS model with twin-clutch, all-wheel drive and a steering system similar to that of the Camaro -- and is extremely sporty compared with most competitors in the segment.
