1976 BLAZER: YOUR MONEY'S WORTH. MILE AFTER MILE.
BLAZER: 1975's "FOUR WHEELER OF THE YEAR" DELIVERS EVEN MORE VALUE IN 1976.
When Four Wheeler magazine presented its highest award to the K-model Blazer, the editors cited Blazer's available Special Suspension. This year that same soft riding front suspension is standard on the K-model Blazer. Chevy also gave Blazer a new steel half top for 1976. And made full-time 4-wheel drive standard on the K-model Blazer with automatic transmission. Now, more than ever before, Blazer can take you where you really want to go.
SPECIAL SUSPENSION HELPS SOFTEN BLAZER'S RIDE.
The new suspension for 4-wheeldrive Blazers is engineered to prvide a softer ride than the previous year's models, while retaining the same off-road capability. Spring rates have been lowered, front and rear springs recambered, shock absorbers revalved and caster has been added to the front suspension. It all adds up to more riding in comfort, on and off the road.
NEW STEEL FRONT HALF TOP HAS BUILT-IN ROLL BAR.
For 1976, all Blazers have a steel half top with built-in roll bar. An integral part of the roof construction, this sturdy roll bar has a flat shape which provides more interior space than conventional tubular roll bars. Full doors add strength and improve glass seals. A new removable fiberglass-reinforced plastic top encloses the rear seating and cargo area.
FULL-TIME 4WD WITH TURBO HYDRA-MATIC.
This K-model Blazer with Turbo Hydra-matic transmission has full-time 4-wheel drive. A special interaxle differential allows the system to remain in 4-wheel drive both on and off the road. This versatility gives you traction for off-road going, plus good stability and tracking under varying road conditions. All 4-wheel-drive controls are located inside the cab for your convenience.
INTERAXLE DIFFERENTIAL COMPENSATES FOR SPEED VARIATIONS BETWEEN FRONT AND READ AXLES.
The difference between conventional 4-wheel drive and Chevy's full-time systems is the interaxle differential built into the transfer case. This device compensates for variations in speed between the front and rear axles while constantly delivering power to both. For off-road or low traction operation, the interaxle differential can be bypassed to lock both axles rigidly together, simply by moving the transfer case shift lever to the high- or low-lock position. For normal operation, however, the transfer case can remain in "high" whether Blazer is on or off the road.
HERE ARE THE DRIVE CHOICES YOU HAVE.
H Loc - Interaxle differential is locked out, solidly connecting front and rear axles. Delivers equal torque to both axles in direct drive. Used only on extreme low-traction surfaces which allow wheel slippage.
H - Interaxle differential is operating, providing power to both axles in direct drive. Prevents torque windup which occurs when axles are solidly connected. Used for all normal driving on high- or low-traction surfaces.
N - Transfer case is disengaged from front and rear axles; vehicle is stationary. Used for power takeoff operation.
L - Interaxle differential is operating, providing power to both axles at 2.0:1 gear reduction. Prevents torque windup which occurs when the axles are solidly connected. Used for driving when maximum power is required.
L Loc - Interaxle differential is locked out, solidly connecting the front and rear axles. Delivers equal torque to both axles at 2.0:1 gear reduction. Used only on extreme low-traction surfaces which allow wheel slippage.
FRONT FREE-WHEELING HUBS STANDARD.
Conventional 4WD Blazers, with V8 engines, come with front free-wheeling hubs. This allows you to quickly switch the front hubs from free-wheeling for normal driving on high-traction surfaces to lock position when moving off-road or onto other low-tracion surfaces.
LOW ENTRY HEIGHT, HIGH GROUND CLEARANCE.
With the transfer case mounted directly to the transmission, Blazer's entry height is only 20.6 inches. Yet despite its low silhouette and low center of gravity, Blazer has 6.6 inches of ground clearance for off-road travel.
BLAZER. A SOLID VALUE FROM THE INSIDE OUT.
From the Special Suspension right up to its new steel half top, this year's Blazer offers more 4WD value than ever. Here are a number of Blazer's key features for 1976.
For increased torque and horsepower without increase in engine weight, a powerful 400 4-barrel V8 is included in this Blazer.
HIGH ENERGY IGNITION SYSTEM.
Standard with this V8, Chevy's High Energy Ignition delivers up to an 85% hotter spark than conventional systems. It improves cold-weather starting, provides all-weather protection from moisture, dirt and road splash. Solid-state design eliminates ignition points and condenser, extends the time between recommended tune-ups.
NEW RUSTPROOFING IN CRITICAL AREAS.
To reduce corrosion, the inside surfaces of front fender inner and outer panels are sprayed with zincrich primer before welding and final priming. Primer is baked on inner surfaces of front door outer panels before forming and final priming. Then the entire Blazer steel body, doors and tailgate are totally immersed in electrically charged primer - drawing paint into hidden seams, and crevices for added corrosion protection.
ENERGY-ABSORBING STEERING COLUMN.
It's designed to help absorb energy in the event of severe frontend impact. It telescopes to provide a cushioning effect. With the automatic transmission the locking steering wheel feature is included.
NEW STEEL HALF TOP.
A new steel half top covers the front of the cab, while a removable fiberglass-reinforced plastic top encloses the rear seating and cargo area. A sturdy roll bar is built into the steel half top.
QUICK TURN ANGLE.
A 34-degree turn angle on the front axles gives Blazer a turning diameter of only 37.6 ft., curb-to-curb, for easy maneuvering in any situation.
NEW GVW RATING.
For 1976, the GVW rating for 4-wheel-drive is a hefty 6,200 lbs. As a result Blazer engines are designed to operate on no-lead or regular gasoline.
This Blazer has the 3-speed Turbo Hydra-matic transmission.
TOUGH BLAZER FRAME.
Drop-center design allows for lower body height, makes getting in and out easy. Deep-section all steel channel side rails are strong and durable to withstand the demands of off-road driving.
RUGGED LEAF SPRINGS.
Wide multi-leaf front and rear springs and front stabilizer bar are standard on this 4-wheel-drive Blazer.
COUNTER-ANGLED REAR SHOCKS.
Rear shock absorbers are positioned with one slanting forward, the other slanting aft. This helps reduce brake and power hops.
COMPUTER-MATCHED BRAKE SYSTEMS.
Complete system is computer-matched to Blazer's GVW rating. Front disc brakes provide resistance to fade and recover quickly from water immersion. Lining wear sensor sounds audible signal when disc pads need replacement. Cast iron-steel rear brake drums are finned for cooling. Power assist is standard on this Blazer.
DOUBLE-WALLED BODY AND SHEET METAL.
Blazer's hood, front fenders and tailgate are fabricated from two single sheets of steel, welded together to form a rigid double wall. Double-wall construction is also used in Blazer's doors, windshield pillars, half roof, front cowl and rear side panels.
LEXAN REAR TAILLIGHT LENSES.
Substantially stronger than acrylic plastic, Blazer's Lexan taillights have added impact resistance.
BLAZER'S CHEYENNE INTERIOR.
This Blazer's newly styled front bucket seats and full-width rear bench seat include custom cloth upholstery in Saddle at no extra cost. The console between the seats, guage-type instrumentation with simulated wood-grain trim and added insulation are included with Cheyenne. This interior also comes with color-keyed carpeting and special front door and rear sidewall trim panels with bright accents and simulated wood-grain trim. Map pockets are included in door-trim panels.
SLIDING SIDE WINDOW GLASS.
For added ventilation, sliding side windows are included in the removable plastic top. Windows have adjustable outboard ventipane sections to control incoming air flow.
All Weather air conditioning heats, cools and dehumidifies air for inside comfort. Increased-capacity engine cooling and 61-amp Delcotron generator are included.
COMFORT STEERING WHEEL.
Adjusts to six different positions for almost everybody's driving comfort. Provides easy entry, easy exit.
FUEL TANK SHIELD PLATES.
Steel shielding helps protect fuel tank during operation over rough terrain or unusual road surfaces. Includes transfer case protection on this 4-wheel-drive Blazer.
BELOW EYELINE MIRROS.
Large reflective surface and extended mounting arms provide good rear visibility. Low mount position helps provide good side vision. Mirror head pivots inward for added clearance. Stainless finish.
WEIGHT-DISTRIBUTING HITCH PLATFORM.
Trailer weight-distributing hitch platform is required for trailers over 2,000 lbs. Distributes load evenly for less strain. Welding required.
SPARE TIRE COVER.
Made from heavy-duty black vinyl, the cover slips easily on and off the spare tire.
