Everyone here on staff at Jim Butler of St Louis loves to explore new vehicles for ourselves, and let all of our customers know the reasons why we think they would be a good fit for their needs. The tech-savvy and knowledgeable crew at the NOQ Report blog was righteously excited about the new Chevy Blazer over the past week, which they claimed is the “most visually stunning SUV Chevy has released in years.” You can see the video from Chevy here, which does a great job of detailing the various trims and features.
One of the best elements of the Premium trim is the leather and sueded microfiber that adds a very luxurious feel, and it has been amazing and exciting to see the progression of upgrades in general. Just two decades ago, it seemed that the Italian brands that existed among other luxury icons that were financially out of reach for the everyday buyer were the only way to get truly lavish features in the interior. Taking the design aesthetics to a new level was one of the reasons customers really started to be excited about the new Blazer, and the appearance that seems a bit more from the car camp will be appreciated by many.
Many with any type of stake in the auto industry knew that it was only a matter of time before features such as the in-vehicle report card would be put to use: gone are the days where your teen could “sneak away” untracked. Owners even get an alert when the music Is playing too loud, just in case a severe uptick in the decibel factor is on the “not approved” list. Some of the customers that come here to talk to us let us know that they feel Chevy already has plenty of SUV options, and we can understand that sentiment. The Blazer is one of those vehicles that everyone from the avid camper to busy rock drummer favored after its creation: when you look at early models circa 1979, you can just feel the freedom from the concrete jungle oozing from every square inch.
The NOQ Report staff agreed that “naysayers can complain all they want about the crowded segment, but Chevy has knocked it out of the park with the 2019 Blazer.” We are large fans here of the original GMC S-15 Jimmy 2-door: it did not feature removable hardtops, but was truly part of the iconic build style that evoked the fun and go-anywhere spirit that is the Blazer's essence. It was one of the first vehicles to exist that had a somewhat tight and car-like driving sensation, but offered room in the back that was a hauler and transporter's dream.
We always love heartily the possibilities that open themselves up to anyone with a wayfarer's dream and a roadmap, after quickly throwing in a tent and sleeping bag or two. The spirit of wanderlust is still stoking Blazer owners nationwide, and don't think for a minute that this is just an urban explorer: just as the sure coming of spring, the Missouri wild will be beckoning to you in no time.
