When Chevrolet resurrected the Blazer name, some of us at (OK, mainly me) were disappointed that it was being used for a more modern style of SUV instead of competition for the Jeep Wrangler or the soon-to-be-real-we-swear Ford Bronco.

$22,777 $133 price drop reviewer Aaron Bragman has spent the most time of any of us behind the wheel of the new Blazer and came away impressed with what Chevrolet has attempted to do.

“There’s no denying the Blazer makes a statement,” wrote Bragman. “There’s a presence to its styling that sets it apart in a field of boring two-box designs. The Chevrolet Camaro influences are obvious, from the swoopy front end to the prominent fenders, then reaching back to the sleek, angular taillights. An RS trim in bright red is without a doubt the sportiest looking crossover SUV in the class. While other competitors go for the rugged off-roader look, the Blazer makes no apologies about being an on-road warrior. And this makes sense: Crossovers are replacing sedans as the family vehicle of choice in America, so what should you get if you typically enjoy a sports sedan? Asks Chevy: How about a sports crossover?”

A link to Bragman’s full review can be found below, where it is currently in second place behind longtime reigning champ the 2019 Toyota RAV4.
