The K10 Blazer is a utility vehicle built by the US automaker Chevrolet, between 1969 to 1999. Based on Chevy’s naming conventions at the time, a K10 was a half ton, 4-wheel drive vehicle.
The Blazer was similar to a Suburban, but with one less passenger row. This configuration was quite popular and utilitarian and remained in Chevy’s lineup for many years. Engine choices ranged from 250 cu in (4.1 L) I6 up to a 350 cu in (5.7 L) V8. It came with transmission choices of 3-speed TH-350 automatic, 3-speed manual or a 4-speed manual.
The 1985 Chevrolet Blazer K10, for example, was a hardtop with a 5.0L V8 W/Esc 4-speed. It was a 3-door wagon body type. It used 4×4 part-time, with rear permanent, front engaged manually in off-road conditions. It used a manual 4-speed transmission. It had a gas engine with 305.2 cid, that advertised power of 119 kW / 160 hp / 162 PS, and torque of 319 Nm / 235 lb-ft. It was built on a full-size truck frame with a long 185.5 in wheelbase. Top speed was 144 km/h (89 mph.) 0-60 mph was 12.8 seconds and the 0-100 km/h time was 13.7 seconds. 1/4 mile drag time (402 m) was 18.7 seconds. Gas milage was not incredible, but respectable for a large vehicle, getting 14/17 mpg.
One of the most desirable types of Blazers for collectors are the convertibles. These half cabs are convertible starting just behind the driver and passenger doors all the way back to the tailgate.
