SEMA360 Preview: Chevrolet’s 1977 K5 Blazer-E With The Electric Connect And Cruise Crate Package

On top, nothing appears amiss…other than it’s the cleanest 1977 Chevrolet Blazer to occur on the world since about the time Brian was a toddler and dad had been benefiting from astonishing news from my mother. Looks like absolutely nothing apart from a beauty of a restored Blazer, right? Entirely down seriously to the hubcaps, perfect. Solid axles underneath, mint condition detachable limit, The definitely decked out inside because of the faked woodgrain…it’s ideal. Which’s the entire goal that Chevrolet had whenever putting the Blazer-E together. Nothing seems amiss and soon you turn the key and in the place of hearing an asthmatic 400ci V8, you hear absolutely nothing. Once you put your foot straight down, you don’t hear a Quadrajet moaning away like ghost of Jacob Marley. All you hear is tire on road and also the wind getting bashed in by square-body aerodynamics.

We’ve seen this before from Chevrolet. Last year it had been the E-10, the tricked-out 1962 C10 pickup. The season prior, it absolutely was the E-COPO Camaro. The target is for GM to lead the way in which in electric powertrain crate motor packages, solidifying a providing which range from the Bolt EV’s drive unit (that the Blazer-E has, offering 200 horsepower and 266 ft/lbs of torque) throughout whatever LSX riot-in-a-box your heart desires. Going back to the Blazer-E, outside of the electric power steering, the electric pump that is supplying vacuum cleaner for the brake system, plus the controller to operate a vehicle inputs towards the Blazer’s gauges…including the “fuel” measure that now demonstrates battery power, it is all 1977. Okay, there’s now a four-speed automatic, that arrived afterwards in the run. However know what we suggest.

GM is currently training up shops become Electrical Cruise and Connect installers and very first to pilot working out will likely to be Lingenfelter Performance Engineering out of Brighton, Michigan. Lingenfelter? Um…yeah. The individuals who understand how to make a GM item party. They’ll be driving the EV swing forward. We can’t wait for an electrified Monza going to the circuit.
