Not much has changed with the 2004 Chevrolet Blazer. Starting this year, it now offers a deluxe overhead console and Chevrolet’s AutoTrac four-wheel-drive system as stand-alone options. Additionally, the Xtreme model features new wheels.
The 2004 Chevrolet Blazer comes in either a two-door or four-door body style. The four-door Blazer measures 183.3 inches long and rides on a 107-inch wheelbase. The two-door Blazer comes up 6.5 inches shorter in both dimensions. A choice of swing-up liftgate or a drop-down tailgate remain available on either model. The rear window is separate from the tailgate, so it opens and flips up on both body styles.
The 2004 Chevrolet Blazer Xtreme model has a sportier look and attitude with low-profile tires, five-spoke aluminum wheels, deep-tint windows, color-keyed body cladding, and special ?Xtreme? badging.
Depending on which 2004 Chevrolet Blazer model you choose, it can seat five or six people. The four-door Blazer has a split front and rear bench seat for up to six passengers. The two-door model, including the Xtreme, gets front bucket seating and a split-folding rear bench seat. The two door model seats up to five occupants. The two-door models also have a floor-mounted gearshift lever for the automatic transmission.
Four-door Blazers offer optional steering-wheel radio controls, which allow the driver to concentrate on the road. Four-door models also have a convenient overhead console with a universal garage door opener.
