  2019 Chevy Corvette ZR1 hits 60 mph in just 2.85 seconds The 2019 Chevy Corvette ZR1 is a car of superlatives. It's faster and moreFor reference, the current Corvette Z06 hits 60 mph in 2.85 seconds and does the quarter-mile in 10.95 seconds. The ZR1 might only be incrementally quicker, but Chevy is taking one of the world's quickest cars even quicker. Grip and corner speed is where the car will really shine. On a set of Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, the Z06 pulls 1.2g on the skidpad and stops from 60 mph in 99.6 feet. Expect something even more ridiculous with the ZR1.

Instead, it rides on the same C1 architecture as other car-based crossovers including the Cadillac XT5 and GMC Acadia. One difference: a wider track to give it more girth and character.

The five-passenger crossover comes in three trim levels including the sportier and blacked-out RS and the more upscale Premier, both with optional 21-inch wheels instead of the standard 18s. Chevy tried to give each trim a distinct look with changes to the grilles and trim pieces.

Unfortunately, that's all we know for the moment.It's safe to assume the new Silverado HD will use a few different powertrains, with gasoline and diesel V8 engines likely in the mix. Single- and dual-rear wheel options will likely be available, and we fully expect the heavy-duty pickup to include all of the new features found on the half-ton 2019 Silverado, including that trick power tailgate.Chevy says the 2020 HD will mark the reveal of "three all-new Silveraos in 18 months.

The Blazer name, which dates back to 1969, has not been used since 2005, but the auto industry is going through a retro phase with other discarded names coming back, including the Ford Bronco, Lincoln Continental, and Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. Automakers save a ton on marketing when known names are repurposed, and they have shown they have no qualms about putting past names on vehicles vastly different from their original namesakes.

"I don't think there will be push back on the name," said Alan Batey, president of GM North America and head of Global Chevrolet. In 2003 almost 70 percent of the mid-size SUV segment was body on frame but today more than 90 percent are unibody because that is what customers want. Chevy did not want to get stuck on heritage and the Colorado pickup is there for those wanting body on frame, he said.

The 2019 Blazer has little in common with its predecessor two-door truck-based SUV, but "the Blazer has attitude," said John Cafaro, executive director of Global Chevrolet Design. The crossover has a high beltline, bolder front, dual exhaust outlets, and an integrated tailgate spoiler. The lines are busy especially the rear quarter panel with black trim sweeping up to the spoiler to create the appearance of a floating roof.

Design chief Mike Simcoe said no Blazer cues went into the design. The goal was to create the character of a Blazer with a mix of boldness and sport.

Of the 17 competitors in the segment, most offer a third row. The Blazer will not, joining the Ford Edge, Nissan Murano, Jeep Grand Cherokee and the body-on-frame Toyota 4Runner.

The base engine is GM's 193-hp, 188-lb-ft 2.5-liter inline-four, and buyers can opt for the 3.6-liter V-6 that generates 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque. Both are mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission and have stop-start technology. There are no plans to add a hybrid.

Also optional is all-wheel drive including a twin-clutch all-wheel-drive system on the RS and Premier trims. The Blazer can tow up to 4,500 pounds with the V-6. Opt for the Hitch View to accurately back the hitch up to the trailer.
