2005 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4WD 2dr SUV (4.3L 6cyl 5M)
I bought my Blazer last fall. I needed an inexpensive 4X4 that could actually go off road. I have a 25KM drive into my cabin down a road which eats up Escapes and Toyota SUVs. Chevy Canada was blowing them out at $18,998 CDN (About $14,500 US at the time). I've had no problems at all with it. Is it small, outdated and gets lousy fuel mileage? Yup. Will It plow through 2ft high snow drifts, pull a 3500lb trailer, actually go offroad without getting stuck ? Sure does. Considering anything else on the market that would do what I needed was $12,000 to $20,000 more, It was a no brainer. If you're a soccer mom looking to cart the kids around town, look elsewhere.
Cheap. Very good at what it was designed for back in the dark ages. Cheap, torquey engine. Full frame construction
Last year for it so I'll have to make this one last
