Fans have eagerly been looking forward to the introduction of the 2016 Chevy Blazer K-5. This much-awaited off-roader should not disappoint them when it finally does become available. The original Chevy Blazer K-5 debuted in 1969 and it has since then undergone quite a few incarnations. Over time, the K-5 has accumulated quite a large fan following. Though the Chevrolet Tahoe replaced it in 1995, the K-5 has again been given a new lease of life in 2015 because the demand for this kind of vehicle is high and also because the condition of the economy is good. The new 2016 Chevy Blazer K-5 will be a fourth generation complete two-door vehicle that makes use of the soon-to-be-discontinued Tahoe platform. There is a possibility that Chevrolet may choose to return the K-5 as a two and four-door S-10 that makes use of an identical platform used on the Chevy Colorado.

GM may also plan to use Nismo skid plates. The company will also probably use 17×9” wheels.
