The K5 Chevy Blazer is the new hot classic SUV


#1

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.
