Whether you like the reincarnated Chevy Blazer may depend on whether you expect it to be like the original Chevy Blazer -- which was a rugged (and spartan) 4-by-4 with a removable top and a roll bar. Just the ticket for crabbing up backwoods fire roads and rooster-tailing sand at the beach.

The new Blazer is nothing like that.

It's actually a lot like the current Camaro -- with more doors and better seats.

The Blazer name returns -- affixed to a mid-sized crossover SUV with a roof and four doors (instead of two doors, like the original) that seats five. The floorboards aren't metal, and you cool off by turning up the AC instead of rolling down the windows.

 

It fills the gap in Chevy's lineup between the compact-sized Equinox and the full-sized Traverse.

Prices start at $28,800 for the base L trim, which is the only trim not available with all-wheel-drive or the option to swap out the standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine for a much stronger 3.6 liter V6.

Next up is an LT trim, which comes with either the standard 2.5-liter engine or the optional 3.6-liter V6.

AWD is also available -- but only if you buy the V6, too.
