2001 Chevrolet Blazer news, pictures, and information
CHEVY BLAZER: 2001 SECURITY IN A INSECURE WORLDBe prepared. That's good advice if you're a Boy Scout or you're just trying to make it to work, in a snowstorm. That's because Chevy Blazer is all about dependability and confidence, on or off-road. For 2001, Blazer adds the new two-door, two-wheel drive Blazer Xtreme which blends an aggressive exterior appearance wîth a special Low-Riding Sport Suspension to bring a new level of attitude to the Chevy Blazer family.
'Blazer is a Chevy Truck wîth nearly two decades of history,' said Blazer Brand Manager Russ Clark. 'It has everything a sport utility buyer is lòòking for: It offers the hard-working capabilities of a truck without sacrificing comfort or security, all in a package that still turns heads.'
The 2001 lineup adds the new Blazer Xtreme model, combining an aggressive exterior appearance wîth a road-hugging, Low Riding Sport Suspension. The two-door, two-wheel-drive Blazer Xtreme includes:
• Z87 Low Riding Sport Suspension
• Aggressive P235/60R16 Eagle LS low profile tires
• Xtreme deep-dish 5-spoke aluminum wheels
• Lower body front fascia wîth fog lamps
• Lower body-side cladding and aggressive wheel flares
• Body-colored grille, bumpers, lower cladding and flares
• Special 'Xtreme' badging
• Deep tint windows
• Leather wrapped §teering wheel
• Heavy-duty weight distributing platform hitch — 5,000 lbs. Max towing capacity wîth automatic transmission; 4,000 lbs. Max. wîth manual transmission)
• Available sunroof
• Full range of audio systems available, including Bose Sound System and 6-disc CD changer.
Two- and four-door Blazers provide elbowroom for as many as six people. Two-door Blazers come in the LS trim, while four-door versions offer a choice of the LS, up-level LT and unique TrailBlazer trim levels. Blazer's sporty exterior styling has long been a favorite of younger buyers. TrailBlazer's exterior receives gold or silver painted body and wheel accents for added flair. Inside any Blazer, the roomy interior boasts an abundance of comfort and convenience features. TrailBlazer offers specific Two-Tone Custom Leather seating surfaces wîth a specific leather-wrapped §teering wheel and a floor-mounted automatic transmission shift knob.
Blazer LS models offer a convenience group wîth cruise control, tilt §teering, power door locks and windows wîth electric remote heated exterior mirrors. Air conditioning and a PASSlock theft-deterrent system are standard. Blazer LT offers an eight-way power driver seat adjuster, optional Custom Leather seating surfaces (with and without heat) and electronic climate control.
For added peace-of-mind, the OnStar system is standard on Blazer LT. OnStar utilizes a satellite-based Global Positioning System, combined wîth attentive personal service, to provide Blazer LT owners wîth enhanced safety, security and convenience. At the touch of a button, an OnStar Advisor is available to contact emergency services providers or roadside assistance. In the event of an accident in which Blazer's airbags are deployed, Blazer's OnStar system will contact the OnStar Center. There, trained Advisors will immediately contact emergency assistance if needed and provide them wîth the vehicle's exact location. In the event of theft, OnStar can track Blazer and help guide authorities to its location. Should the keys become locked inside the vehicle, an OnStar Advisor will send a signal to unlock Blazer's doors, even from thousands of miles away.
Únder the hood, Blazer's highly capable performance comes from its standard Vortec 4300 V6 engine that generates 190 horsepower @ 4400 rpm and 250 lb. ft. torque @ 2800 rpm. Two-door Blazers are equipped wîth a standard 5-speed manual transmission or an optional four-speed electronic automatic. When situations call for a little extra traction, the available Autotrac four-wheel-drive system automatically shifts power to all four wheels, as conditions require. (Standard on LT 4x4 and optional on LS 4x4 models.) For improved efficiency, Blazer's fuel management system includes a new fuel filler assembly; a multi-layer plastic fuel tank, revised fuel lines and vapor purge lines. Onboard Refueling Vapor Recovery (ORVR) compliance components are new for 2001 to help reduce unwanted emissions. To meet specific states low-emission requirements, a National Low Emission Vehicle (NLEV) system is also available on Blazer for 2001.
Blazer's reputation for safety and security continues in 2001. In addition to its standard anti-lock brake system and front-passenger air bags, Blazer features an optional new programmable auto door lock/unlock feature that allows customers the ability to set the locking and unlocking functions to their preference. On- or off-road, the Chevy Blazer is a confident performer, thanks to its standard Z85 sporty/firm suspension that accommodates a variety of driving needs. Available on Two-Door Blazer LS 4x4s, the rugged ZR2 Wide-Stance Sport Performance package is designed to meet the demands of serious off-road enthusiasts.
On the highway or off the beaten path, Blazer offers a dependable, well-equipped mid-size sport utility that's big on driving security in an insecure world.Source - Chevrolet
