DETROIT — General Motors is bringing back the Chevrolet Blazer, which last sold in the United States 14 years ago, but the automaker's decision to build the SUV in Mexico is not sitting well with the United Auto Workers Union.

Minutes after GM announced that the Blazer would be making a comeback in the 2019 model year, the labor union issued a statement blasting the plan to build the new Blazer at the Ramos Arizpe factory in Mexico.

Lol, when I saw the headline, I thought General Motors had branched out into promotional men's clothing! :D


A single-breasted, reefer-style, navy blue blazer, dressed with brass buttons. I bought a blazer identical to that for formal occasions.

Why would Chevrolet name a truck after a gentleman's jacket?

GMC's Blazer truck is probably named after 'blazing a trail'.

*practice of marking a forest trail by making blazes, that is, marking trees with notches or chips in the bark.
