What Chevy Unveiled at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show


As the largest car show in America, the Chicago Auto Show proudly hosted Chevrolet’s two all-new models this February: the 2019 Chevy Blazer and 2020 Silverado HD. The new Blazer is already available for sale and lease at our Lee’s Summit Chevy dealership, while the 2020 Silverado ¾-ton pickup is set to be released this summer. Here’s all you need to know about both of these stunning new Chevrolet vehicles.


2019 Chevy Blazer Overview

Making a comeback, the 2019 Chevrolet Blazer is a 5-passenger, 4-door crossover SUV with tons of sporty, rugged qualities, including front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive.
