The 2019 Chevrolet Blazer has arrived, and it’s already proving to be quite the hit at David Chevrolet Buick. If you’re among those who love the look and feel of the Blazer but wish it had a third-row option, you might be in luck. A report from GM Authority suggests that a three-row Chevrolet Blazer XL is in the works for China, which means it may eventually make its way to the United States.
Sources tell GM Authority that the Chevrolet Blazer XL will be based on the Chevrolet FNR-Carry All Concept, meaning it will be 5.5 inches longer than the 2019 Chevrolet Blazer and 7.4 inches shorter than the Chevrolet Traverse. GM Authority speculates that the Blazer XL would get two engine options in China: a 3.6-liter V6 and an exclusive 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder with an output of 240 horsepower.
It’s noted that the Chevrolet Blazer XL would be most ideal for markets where the Traverse is not available, including China, South Korea, and South America. Because the Traverse is a popular vehicle in the United States, it is less likely that we’ll be seeing the Blazer XL stateside anytime soon. However, with the all-new 2019 Blazer already proving to be popular with drivers, we’re not ruling anything out just yet.
In the meantime, if you’re in the market for an exceptional SUV, stop into David Chevrolet Buick to check out the Chevrolet Traverse and all-new Chevrolet Blazer.
