2001 Chevrolet Blazer Xtreme
This is the new Chevy Blazer Xtreme. With exhibitionist rocker
cladding and wheel flares, it elicits comments from younger Americans who like
to use adjectives like "phat" and "bad." - their first question is usually
"Has it got an 8?" Well, no, this Blazer has a 4.3-liter 190-horsepower V6.
The rowdy approach continues with
the interior styling, which includes limited rear seating and the spare tire
in the cargo hold.
As an urban sport utility vehicle, this is a car to test drive if your sports
feature cruisin', chillin' and hangin'...
