1992Edit

The full-size Blazer's standard engine was a 5.7-liter ohv V8. Gas engines were mated to a standard 5-speed manual transmission (upgraded for easier shifting and quieter operation) or an optional 4-speed automatic; the diesel engine was available only with the automatic. All Blazers came with 4-wheel-drive. The 1992 Blazer was unveiled at the 1992 North American International Auto Show on January 9, 1992.

1994Edit

New for 1994 was an optional bigger engine -- a 6.5-liter turbocharged V8 diesel. 

1995Edit

The Tahoe was introduced in 1994 as a 1995 model, replacing the previous model year's V8 Blazer. It retained the distinctive look of its predecessor, but offered such new features as a driver-side airbag, brake-transmission shift interlock, an all-new instrument panel and contoured seats. Also included were an optional center console (standard with uplevel bucket seats) converted to a mobile work station with a pivoting writing surface, map pocket, removable coin holder and a latched rear storage drawer. Later in the model year, a 4-door Tahoe made its debut.

The 2-door Tahoe came in three trim levels -- Standard, LS and LT, while the 4-door Tahoe was offered with a choice of 2wd or 4wd. A 2-speed transfer case with a floor-mounted shifter provided shift-on-the-fly operation.
