2001 Chevrolet Blazer.jpg

Chevrolet Blazer/Opel Blazer. 1995–2011 (prod. n/a). 3- and 5-door SUV. F/R, F/A, 2198, 2405 cm³ petrol, 2507, 2796 cm³ diesel (I4 OHC), 2198 cm³ (I4 DOHC), 4300 cm³ (V6 OHV). Handsome second-generation Blazer, with powerful V6 in the US, but let down by a cheap interior. Initially quite competitive but rivals caught up—soon Blazer appeared unrefined with questionable quality, and it never had the best crash-test scores. Started with a smoother front end, the Family II 2·2 OHC and rear-wheel drive in Brazil, which proved underpowered, though it still managed to gain a following. Original 2·5 diesel also underpowered. Imported V6 eventually fitted, and four-wheel drive and a larger diesel came in 1998. New grille there in 1999. Diesel in Brazil from 2000; more substantial rebody with large grille and creased wings in 2001, when 2·4 replaced 2·2. Final facelift for Brazil in 2008. Donned Opel badges in Indonesia, outwardly similar to the American model. To 2005 model year in the US, but continued in Brazil to the end of 2011. Spawned the Chevrolet Trailblazer (1999–2001) as an upmarket line.
