This Blazer has been great I think I will keep it till the end of time I put a 6 inch lift on it and 22 custom wheels custom head lights and tail lights and every where I go people just love it it rides well and has lots of room inside but gas wise not so good but I don't care about that.
My Blazer is very reliable and fun to drive. It looks great and has a powerful stance, I wish Chevy still made the full size 2 door. The interior dash board is awesome (1989- 94) everything is in easy reach of the driver, and is very modern with push button controls for the a/c and radio. Gas mileage isn't great for today's standards, but for a 1992 it's good with 15 mpg.
The dashboard, a/c controls, rear folding seat, large cargo area, 4x4, the engine, exterior & interior styling. Dual armrests on the captain chairs.
Bigger gas engines for trailering, such as a 454 or 400. I also like the 6.5 diesel (which was an option).
I bought this car in April 2007 owned it until it was totalled on October 28th 2007. This SUV saved my daughter's life. She was cut off on the freeway and She veered to the left to avoid a collision. Consequently when she turned to avoid the collision. The Blazer went in an extreme arc to hit the center divider with most of the force of impact on the right front end of the truck. That impact then sent the car careening end over end, slightly kiddy corner completing at least a total of three revolutions then bouncing into the weeds on the exact opposite of the freeway with the truck coming to rest on its wheels, and still running, , facing oncoming traffic. She only sustained a concussion.
This vehicle was rock solid, and ran like a charm. You could feel its bulk when turning. We loved the fact that it was made of metal instead of today's plastic. We never did get to go 4 wheeling in it, however it proved it's handling and durability in the accident. The frame held up incredibly well.
The spare tire was always in the rearview mirror- annnoying--that of course has been addressed in newer models. It had 189,117 miles when it was totalled. Wish all cars ran this long and well.
I have previously owned a 1991 Caprice Classic, but it wouldn't handle snow, so I bought this beauty! It is reliable, comfortable, smooth and versatile! I have had a custom exhaust installed, repainted after original factory paint flaked off, chipped it with the JET brand chip, installed Denali wheels/ tires and upgrade spark plugs to the Platinum series. It is a Cheyenne with vinyl everything inside! Only power features are the steering and the ABS brakes. It looks sharp, rides smooth and sits high! If I were to do it again, I would try to find a 96 or newer with the Vortec engine, or a 95 or newer diesel. My 5.7 is only 210 HP stock.
I love the layout of the dash, seating position, high glass to body ratio and stance. Sits high, looks like a fridge on wheels. Predictable handling - reminds of family Suburban!
Well, armrests would be nice. Also a tach, rear roof vents or rear pop open moonroof would be nice - there is little ventilation with only 2 windows. Bring back the power tailgate window like the Blazers/ Suburbans of past. Also a half-split door for rear passengers. 210 HP!
I've always liked this truck so when I was looking at used vehicles with a BMW 3 in mind and came across my truck at a price I couldn't resist, I was all over it, plus I can do repairs on it, not so on the bimmer. This is a very fun truck to drive. It just turned 200k miles and still runs very strong, still looks great and up to date because Chevy used the body style until 99, I've moved a full size couches in it and towed full size trailers as well the power and size are both amazing I love this truck if chevy made a full size 2 door suv I'd buy it but since they don't I'll be very happy to keep mine until they do, they don't lie when they say like a rock
