GM Building Chevy Blazer in Mexico Risks Provoking Trump's Ire


Washington DC June 22, 2018; The NADA newsletter reported that just as U.S. President Donald Trump is threatening tariffs on imported autos, General Motors Co. plans to resurrect the Chevrolet Blazer, this time as a sleeker sport utility vehicle -- made in Mexico.

The new mid-size model -- bigger than the Equinox, smaller than the Traverse -- will go on sale early next year, as GM’s revives a nameplate that went away in 2005 when the boxy, truck-like SUV was renamed the Tahoe.

The largest U.S. automaker will assemble the car-based utility at its plant in Ramos Arizpe, Mexico.
