Description for Chevrolet Blazer 1971

The Blazer was designed and marketed to compete with International Harvester Scout and the Ford Bronco. Both of these were originally aimed at the short Jeep CJ series which were much smaller than other trucks. The great innovation of the Blazer was to simply offer a shortened pickup truck which both increased interior space and lowered the cost of production with a shared platform. The Blazer quickly became popular. For the first time it married the off-road capabilities of the Scout with the ..."luxury" features like air conditioning and automatic transmissions routinely available on pickup trucks. By 1970 the Blazer was already outselling both of its older rivals. Ford Dodge and even Jeep would counter with similar shortened pickups with the Dodge Ramcharger and Jeep Cherokee.
