    Chevy Blazer gets $2000 Discount for Conquest buyers



    This confirms what was said all along.. that GM priced this vehicle high just so it could discount it as production up-ticked. 3023 Blazers were sold in the first quarter (Jan 1 to Mar 31,2019) which is consistent with launch timing, production limitations, and lack of promotion. The Blazer production started in late Dec. 2018 and started selling in the last days of that month. Sales vs its immediate competitor, the Honda Passport are down by 1791, with both essentially launching in similar times, but the Blazer not in full production until after the quarter close.

    Must take delivery by April 30, 2019.
    Some customers may not qualify for this offer.
    Offer not available with special finance, lease, and some other offers.

    So basically an RS (pictured above) would start off now at $39K.

    Yeah, that seems to be their modus operandi any more. Over price things and snag the certain so and so's in the beginning then bring in the discounts. It's still not enough off IMO though. I'm finally getting to the point of not minding this design so much other than that front end, egads.

    Never had an issue with the looks.. think its the best looking in its class hands down.. the price though.,. never had an issue with that either because from the first models I saw.. there were discounts already attached. Sales 101.. always make the customer think its getting a deal. See. Look.. some of these are priced "right" already. Hell one is $5K off, one of the is AWD.. and the one at KOONS is AWD with $3K off.. and I know for a fact that I could talk them down at least another $1500

    $2,000 is okay, but it needs to be paired with about another $5,000 to really entice people.

    I suspect the discounts will continue to grow over the next few months...

    I sat in it at the NY Auto Show - I liked it. Were I in the market for a CUV it would be on top of my list.

    For the price tag should have been built on the Alpha platform, and 2k is not enough, needs to be around 5k to 7k lower for a medium size CUV.
    IF IT AINT RWD; AND A CHEVY I DONT RIDE IT!!!!!

    ALL CHEVY'S NEED TO BE RWD!!!!!

    But then it would be way cheaper than the Honda Passport and Edge... Why do people constantly think that Chevy should put out better products than the competition, but offer it at a way cheaper price than the competition.. and then still be able top offer better products than the competition?

    I tell U what.. everyone get on Honda and Ford and Nissan and tell them to lower their prices constantly.. and see if they jump right to their attention and do it

    Perhaps some people want Chevy to increase its U.S. market share? Anyway, Chevy doesn't do either of those things, nor does it need to. Remember GM is focused on profitability. Keep design, engineering, and materials costs as low as possible and charge customers as high a price as possible.

    To that point, Chevys are not any better than comparably equipped competitors, and they actually cost more unless GM decides to hold a "fire sale" on occasion.

    They hold a FIRE SALE on all occasions. I have yet to see one car this year that GM didn't have at least 7% on the hood of the starting price. The Blazer in this mode has almost exactly 7% on the hood. Even if it didn't.. any person worth their weight should be able to get $2000 off a $34K V6 Blazer. That in turn puts it right in line with the V6 Passport at $32K.

    Re: Chevy Blazer gets $2000 Discount for Conquest buyers

    The problem with the Blazer, as is with GM on the whole, is the option packages. To get the remote start it's a $1845 package. Yea, it comes with a ton of other stuff but why not just offer that and heated seats for like $450? I know that more people would spring for that rather than spending almost 2k to get two things they want.


    $2,000 off is solid and it's a good start. A buddy has one and his wife LOVES it but he said it's an awful family vehicle for them and their two boys. There just isn't enough room to take a trip in it. They went to Florida for 5 days and he said never again but then again, he's used to having his Tahoe so I just think he might be used to a larger vehicle as well.

    You hit the nail on the head. I was pricing one up on the build and price thing and I want AWD but that requires the bigger engine. Then if I want a certain thing I gotta go to that option pkg. and the damned price went up from like $36,900 to $39,000 +.

    You'd be surprised at how many people HATE to negotiate these days. Why do you think all the car buying companies exist? They do the work for them, they go in and sign. That's all they gotta do.

    Or else like me, use the available rebates or discounts when they get high enough and that's a pretty good deal or place to start.
