The market for these K5s are heating up.
So not only is the price attractive on this 1990 Chevrolet Blazer K5 4×4, but as you dig deeper, you’ll also see a loaded A/C interior, fuel-injected V8 power, and a recently rebuilt overdrive transmission. It makes for a great classic full-size SUV that’s both affordable and versatile.
This is the final few years for this generation K5 Blazer. That’s important to many, because they got a unique front end that instantly identifies them as one of the youngest of the breed. But even while it’s younger, it’s still absolutely a classic. It shares the same well-creased lines that made this generation so imposing. And while this has the proper look of a go-anywhere 4×4, there’s also a good sense of style with the bright chrome bumpers and a more recent application of Mesa Brown paint. The reason why this generation of K5 still gets plenty of attention is because we all love the removable rear hardtop that gives this 4×4 a convertible-like feeling. But this one ever looks great with the roof in place because it’s color-matched to the rest of the body. In fact, it really has a nice level of color coordination where the black lower section goes with the black wheels and wide side mirrors, too.
The tan interior has a harmonized look with the exterior, and it’s done for comfort with a nice velour upholstery. You get high-back bucket seats up front with a center console in-between, and the rear has adult-sized room across the big bench. This is loaded with the best features, including cold-blowing air conditioning, power windows, power locks, cruise control, a tilt steering column, and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth. Another reason why you want one of the latest of this generation are the little features that weren’t offered before. This includes power side mirrors, an updated steering wheel, and shoulder belts for the rear. But one thing that never changes is the electric rear window that drops down so you have a big tailgate to sit on everywhere from the ballgame to the campsite. And the proper trailer hitch means you get to bring even more of the fun with you on adventures.
Under the hood is the numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch motor. This is from the era of fuel injection to let it fire up nicely, and the header-fed dual exhaust makes a nice V8 tune. Plus, you’ll spot all the right supporting components, like an aluminum radiator, serpentine belt system, and a new Optima red top battery. These later K5s also got a four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, and this one was professionally rebuilt less than 1k miles ago. The two-speed 4×4 transfer case works with the tall ground clearance and Warn locking hubs to really give you a go-anywhere kind of vehicle. And the power steering, power brakes, and front discs mean it’s great for in-town, too.
