Coming Soon: The 2019 Chevrolet Blazer

2019 Chevrolet Blazer

If you’ve decided that 2019 is the year where you’ll finally upgrade to a new crossover, you couldn’t have picked a better time. This year marks the debut of the 2019 Chevrolet Blazer, which brings back one of the bowtie brand’s most venerable nameplates with a ton of style and capabilities.

The first thing you’ll notice with the 2019 Chevy Blazer is its bold styling: It’s sleek, muscular, and poised, which tells you everything you need to know about the way it performs. On the inside, it’s spacious and well-appointed across two rows, making a great environment for your next big road trip.

Under the hood, you’ll find a standard Ecotec® 2.5-liter engine that will return an EPA-estimated 27 mpg on the highway. With the higher-end Blazer RS and Blazer Premier, a 305-horsepower 3.6-liter engine delivers up to 4,500 pounds of max towing, making the Blazer a great choice for a weekend getaway. The Blazer RS and Blazer Premier also feature Advanced All-Wheel Drive, which includes Driver Mode Control to let you alter your experience case-by-case.

The exciting and stylish 2019 Chevrolet Blazer will be available at Urka Auto Center in early 2019. Stay tuned and get ready!

*EPA-estimated 22 city/27 highway for 2.5L engine and FWD.

**Requires AWD model. Before you buy a vehicle or use it for trailering, carefully review the Trailering section of the Owner’s Manual. The weight of passengers, cargo and options or accessories may reduce the amount you can tow.

2019 Silverado 1500 vs Silverado LD: What’s the Difference?

2019 Silverado LDFor the 2019 model year, Chevrolet has introduced two distinct Silverado 1500 options for pickup drivers: The 2019 Silverado 1500 and the Silverado LD. The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado is an all-new Silverado 1500 pickup, featuring upgraded powertrain options and new exterior styling. The Silverado LD, on the other hand, is a repackaged 2018 Silverado 1500. Both pickups offer different things, so comparing the two isn’t a matter of “which is better,” but “which is right for me.”


The biggest difference between the all-new 2019 Silverado 1500 and the Silverado LD is their respective price tags. The 2019 Silverado 1500 starts with an MSRP of $32,200. The Silverado LD, on the other hand, starts at $28,300. And while some of the features of the Silverado LD are one year behind the all-new 2019 Silverado 1500, the extra savings make it an incredible option for a ton of drivers.


Another key difference between the 2019 Silverado 1500 and the Silverado LD is exterior styling. While the Silverado LD features the familiar style of last-generation Silverado pickups, the 2019 Silverado 1500 features a new styling that is bolder and more contoured. This will be a matter of personal taste for most drivers.


Finally, the 2019 Silverado 1500 is available with more power than the Silverado LD. The Silverado LD maxes out at an impressive 355 horsepower while the 2019 Silverado 1500 is capable of up to 420 horsepower. So, if power is your absolute highest priority, the new 2019 Silverado 1500 might be the way to go.

If you’re still on the fence, the best way to make that final call might be to come into Urka Auto Center and take a test drive both in the all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado and in the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado LD.
