1992-1999 Chevy Blazer Tops ‘Cool and Affordable’ SUV List
The Chevy Blazer (and later Tahoe) from the ’90s is dirt cheap. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t worth every penny!
As you likely already know, getting your hands on most vintage SUVs these days is going to cost you. Prices on more popular models have already skyrocketed, putting classics like square-body Blazers out of reach for most folks. Unless you’re willing to drop your hard-earned cash on one that needs a load of work, that is. But there are some model years that haven’t yet faced the wrath of that same hot market. SUVs like the 1992-1999 Chevy Blazer and Tahoe.
This fact was recently pointed out in a Popular Mechanics piece, which dubbed this run of the Chevy Blazer and Tahoe one of the “coolest and most affordable” vintage ‘utes on the market today. They also noted the fact that these newer models were a big step forward in refinement and driveability over the more popular (read: expensive), older models. But we also think that they’re every bit as cool to look at, personally.
Whether you opt for a 1992-1994 Blazer or 1995-1999 Tahoe (the name changed, but the vehicle remained the same), you can’t really go wrong. Heck, grab a GMC Yukon if you find a good deal, because they’re the same thing, too. What you’ll get is an old school, edgy, incredibly reliable vehicle with loads of potential for mods. You can even opt for a two-door and its short wheelbase, something that’s impossible to get these days.
And with an independent front suspension, they even ride much better than older models. Your bang for the buck here is pretty high, and you’ll be driving something that doesn’t look like every other cookie cutter crossover on the road today. And if you want to save even more cash, look for a bare bones Cheyenne model. Either way, you’ll have a cool ride that is pretty much guaranteed to rise in value, eventually!
