The history of the Chevrolet Blazer
The Chevrolet Blazer was revolutionary in that it was one of the very first SUV's to be manufactured. The idea behind its initial creation was that of bring aimed towards the outdoor and sporting enthusiasts market. The Chevrolet Blazer was first produced in 1963 as an innovative all terrain vehicle, and was the very first vehicle of its kind. The initial model of the S-10 Chevrolet Blazer, was built with the intention of having all of the power of a large pick-up truck, but that it could easily navigate the roughest of terrains. This was achieved as it was a much smaller, and more manageable sized truck. Over the decades, many improvements were made to the original Chevrolet Blazer, but its core values remained very much the same, that of being affordable for the large family, and efficient on all types of road environment.
Editions of the Chevrolet Blazer
Several editions of the Chevrolet Blazer were made between 1963 to 1995. The original Chevrolet Blazer, named the K5 Blazer, was built around the chassis design of the C/K pick-up truck. At that time, it was the smallest SUV that was made by General Motors. It was replaced in 1995 by the Chevrolet Tahoe. What was incredibly unique about the Chevrolet Blazer K5, was that it was a fully convertible pick-up truck, something that had never been done before with a vehicle of that size. This was available as a 2 door and 4 door model. In 1983, GM Motors then decided to make an even smaller pick-up truck. This was named the S-10 Chevrolet Blazer, and was incredibly compact, with the emphasis being very much on that of creating a more family friendly and economical truck. The first generation of this Chevrolet Blazer model was built at the same time as the Chevrolet Blazer K5.
