1995 Chevrolet T10 Review

A breakthrough SUV in the top segment.

Reviewed by Automotive on


The 1995 Chevrolet T10, also known as the four-wheel-drive Blazer, has been a workhorse sport utility vehicle for over a decade. As part of a major change, Chevrolet has completely remodeled it and eliminated the full-size K-5 Blazer, which moves it up to the midsize model. The biggest change is clear from the outside; the size increased, and the body is streamlined for a less-rugged appearance.

The Range

Body Styles: SUV
Engines: 4.3-liter V-6
Transmissions: four-speed automatic, five-speed manual
Models: Chevrolet T10, Chevrolet T10 LS, Chevrolet T10 LT

What's New

The 1995 Chevrolet T10 has an entirely new body, taking notes from the revised S-10 pickup. Driver airbags and air-conditioning are now standard equipment on all models. All-wheel drive is optional, and there are five different suspension packages available.


The 1995 Chevrolet T10 is less rugged and more appealing to the general car buying public. The automaker softens the lines and put shallow curves where hard angles used to be. The front grille is smaller than in the past, and the wheel arches are smaller and rounded. The nose is less blocky with a gently sloping hood.


The 1995 Chevrolet T10 are not drastic but are much needed. The old model was years out of date; the current T10 has more head and shoulder room, although legroom in the back seat is limited, especially when the front seats are pushed back. The dashboard is laid out very well, and the switches and buttons are all simple, easy to read, and are lit during night driving.

Performance & Handling

The 1995 Chevrolet T10 receives a 195-horsepower V-6 that puts it at the top of the class for compact sport utility vehicles. The engine provides very good acceleration and also allows for good hauling and towing capabilities as well as highway cruising and passing. Shifts are smooth, and handling is decent on all models, but the four-door version with a longer wheelbase handles better than the two-door. The suspension is well balanced between comfort and performance. It's slightly top-heavy, but the center of gravity seems to be lower than in the previous generation and its competition. Braking is a little off since the anti-lock brakes engage very quickly and actually increase stopping distance.


The 1995 Chevrolet T10 provides a driver’s front airbag as standard equipment without an option for a passenger’s front airbag. Four-wheel anti-lock brakes are standard across all models. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave it a ?poor? rating for overall passenger protection, but a ?good? for chest protection and another ?poor? for head, neck, structure, and restraints.

EPA Fuel Economy

Chevrolet T10: 15/19 mpg city/highway
