The K5 Chevy Blazer is the new hot classic SUV


The Ford Bronco is the hottest classic SUV out there. That’s still true, only now it has company as the first-generation K5 Chevrolet Blazer (and equivalent GMC Jimmy) start to catch up with its popularity. At Barrett-Jackson’s 2019 Scottsdale auction, several breakout sales suggest the Blazer is–and forgive us this pun– blazing hot.

Ack! I did it again! I bought a '95 Ford Bronco about a year ago. I’ve seen those on Cars.com with asking prices of $25K for trucks with over 200K miles. I bought mine in pristine condition with 164K miles for $5K. It looks and drives like a brand new truck. Should have bought a Blazer I guess. BTW, you said the featured vehicle had an LS3 installed with a “claimed 430 horsepower”. That’s pretty much what Chevrolet “claims” for the stock LS3 in my 2009 Corvette. I’ve got no reason to doubt them.
