This 1988 Chevrolet Blazer K5 4×4 is a loaded Silverado-level SUV that comes from the era of fuel injection and overdrive

And good investments over the years mean this remains the ideal mix of vintage fun and an everyday useful vehicle.

This SUV gives an impression of a machine that has been treated with respect throughout its whole life. The body panels remain straight, the fit is excellent, and the glass is clean/clear. And since this is an upper-level Silverado you get the desirable piece, like the chrome bumpers, hood ornament, and full-length trim. It’s part of a premium style that fits well with the white paint. It was an upgrade that happened around 2007, and it continues to have a quality gloss today. The color-matched hardtop is a nice detail to go with the premium presentation. There are more useful upgrades, like the side steps, a tall stance from newer off-road tires, and there’s a proper trailer hitch on the rear. All of this reminds you that a Blazer like this is perfect for everything from the boat ramp to sitting on the tailgate at ballgames.

The gray and dark interior has a tasteful look, and the condition reminds you how much this has been a well-respected classic. It’s loaded with all the best features, including power windows, power locks, cruise control, a Kenwood AM/FM/CD stereo, and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. This is built to be long-haul comfortable for the driver, and so you have a high-back bucket seat, center console, a tilt steering column, and a wraparound gauge panel. The rear seats have adult-sized legroom, and there’s plenty of room for cargo behind the rear seat.

Under the hood is Chevy’s 5.7-liter V8. It has a high stock and well-preserved presentation. That’s a good thing because this later generation also comes with fuel injection. The motor was given a tune-up about 8k miles ago to keep it running strong. The transmission was rebuilt around the same time. It’s a four-speed automatic unit that shifts smoothly all the way into the highway overdrive. There’s also power steering, power brakes, and front discs. And the two-speed 4×4 transfer case and Back Country All-Terrain tires (newer with only 1300 miles) mean this one knows how to keep going when the pavement ends.
