1985 Chevrolet Blazer

The 1985 Chevrolet Blazer continued to offer rugged off-road performance in the still-new SUV market segment.  

A small number of rear-wheel-drive, four-cylinder models were produced; the standard engine for the four-wheel-drive version, though, was a six-cylinder, 155-horsepower plant. Not surprisingly, buyers of the big, tough '85 Blazer often upgraded to a more powerful V8 mill; a range of these were available, including two V8 diesel options.

Many 1985 Chevy Blazer owners love its versatility and handling, especially its ability to go off-road and transport people and cargo inside rather than in a truck bed.

However, some '85 Chevy Blazer owners report problems with the four-wheel drive, transmission, and other mechanical problems and said replacement parts were expensive.
