(At its inception in the the sports/utility field consisted of that were little than full-sized, short-bed trucks with back Big, rough and uncivilized.

all changed in 1983 with the Chevrolet Blazer. It was smaller, and more personal. Bob and Matt try out the latest version of this compact SUV and find it a pleasant of evolution.)

BOB – This Chevy Blazer LT is really Matt. If a family leads an outdoor life that boating, fishing or, maybe of winter activities, one of the many of small SUVs is an obvious It has room for five, is as smooth as sedans on the highway and has the capability to go anywhere.

Under the hood is a 4.3 liter V6 puts out 190 horsepower, and although the design is pretty low-tech and it’s been refined the years to be quite smooth.

– But we all know that SUVs never go off the pavement, so the real family advantage to of a Blazer 4X4 is that it’s stable in foul weather. If the goes skiing and the road icy or covered with snow, the can electrically flip into drive and continue on without to lash on a set of chains.

Our test rig carried an optional rear differential and although its at nearly $300, it would be advantageous on dirt or gravel where 4WD may not be necessary. The tires come on the standard Blazer are more for touring than rough duty, so the Blazer LT we was fitted up with larger weather tires.

BOB – It had an underbody scuff-shield, too, in case it was going to be put over the and through the bramble-bushes. And since I you love those beefy Matt, Chevrolet now makes a rough-duty version of the Blazer, the ZR2, and it’s for buyers who to spend a lot of time off-road. available only in the two-door and has lots of other specialty borrowed from the ZR2 pickup came out a few years ago.

Projecting an adventurous image has a lot to do buying an SUV, but it’s got to lots of luxury and comfort Our Blazer LT was loaded with like an AM/FM cassette power six-way adjustable seats, a sun roof, tinted and all the trimmings that differentiate genre of off-roader from its ancestors. The LT version is only with a four-speed automatic which is what most prefer, but a five-speed can be had on the base LS Blazer.

MATT – As a family man I can the attraction of an SUV with four Having to fit the baby in a car seat is enough without having to over front seats to do it. doors also adds a more square feet of space and there are times that extra room comes in handy.

Making the door swing upward is an and being able to raise the glass separately makes packages makes it even The Blazer was redesigned a few years with a new profile that’s aerodynamic and that cuts on wind noise and boosts the mileage a bit.

BOB – Unfortunately, the Blazer’s is not great at 16 city and 21 highway, so little bit helps. And I would preferred to see it have more capacity, like the two-door Even though it’s not that extra gallon have given our Blazer a more range.

MATT I thought that it was interesting our Blazer came equipped a pair of gloves and a mat so that the won’t get too dirty in the event of a tire. Since the spare has taken off the back door and under the body, the gloves and the mat are useful items.

BOB – Matt, at my age, found that the most items to have in the event of a tire are patience, a cellular and towing insurance.
