The new Chevrolet Blazer available at Dave Kirk Chevrolet in Crossville TN is a five-seat midsize SUV available in four trim levels: L, LT, RS and Premier. The L trim level is the base model, equipped with a good amount of standard equipment, including a few key tech items. The next-level Blazer trim comes in three subtrims: 1LT, 2LT and 3LT. They offer increasing amounts of safety equipment plus upgraded engines. The RS has a sporty look with some unique exterior details, while the Premier is the most luxurious of the Blazers.
The L and 1LT at Dave Kirk Chevrolet are both driven by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine (193 horsepower, 188 lb-ft of torque). Stepping up to the 2LT and 3LT adds a powerful turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder (230 hp, 258 lb-ft). Optional for the 2LT and 3LT, and standard on the RS and Premier, is a 3.6-liter V6 (308 hp, 270 lb-ft). A nine-speed automatic transmission is standard, as is front-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is available in conjunction with either of the upgraded engines.
Standard equipment on the L trim includes 18-inch wheels, xenon headlights, heated mirrors, keyless ignition and entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, rear air vents, an 8-inch touchscreen, two USB and two USB-C ports (one of each in the front and rear), Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, OnStar capability with a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker stereo.
The 1LT adds to the base L trim level with a power-adjustable driver's seat, tinted glass, satellite radio and a spare tire (instead of a repair kit). The 2LT simply includes the 2.0-liter engine, as well as the option to upgrade to all-wheel drive. The 3LT adds black roof rails, a power liftgate, remote engine start, auto-dimming driver-side and rearview mirrors, leather upholstery, heated front seats, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert, and rear parking sensors.
Near the top of the Blazer heap at Dave Kirk Chevrolet is the RS, which has a sporty look and further adds 20-inch wheels, a blacked-out front grille, dual exhaust tips, a hands-free liftgate, a heated steering wheel, a navigation system, ambient lighting, another set of USB and USB-C ports, an upgraded driver information display, a household-style power outlet and an adjustable cargo management system.
The Premier gets all of the RS version's equipment plus some chrome exterior accents, a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, driver-seat memory settings, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, faux suede cabin trim, and an eight-speaker Bose sound system.
Most of the upper-trim-level equipment at Dave Kirk Chevrolet is optional at lower trim levels in packages. Other notable options include a 360-degree parking camera, a wireless charging pad, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and mitigation, and forward collision alert with automatic braking and pedestrian detection. Also available is the Safety Alert Seat — a driver's seat that works in conjunction with other safety systems by buzzing to alert you to dangers.
