1988 Chevrolet Blazer

1988 Chevrolet Blazer

The second generation of the full-size K5 Blazer was produced from 1973 through 1991. For 1988, four new colors became available including forest green metallic, light mesa brown metallic, dark mesa brown metallic, and bright blue metallic. The 1988 Blazer also received a fixed mast antenna which replaced the prior windshield antenna. It also received a trip odometer as part of the gauge package cluster, new door handle seal, and an improved pulse windshield wiper control.

GM temporarily changed the usual 'C/K' designation to 'R' and 'V' for the 1987 through 1991 model years. This had been done to avoid confusion with the GMT400-based Chevrolet C/K pickup trucks, which were introduced in 1988, during the overlap period.

Throttle-body injection had been introduced in 1987 in the truck engines, and the 350 was made the standard power plant.
