6.2 Liter Diesel
A 1985 Chevrolet Blazer D10 M1009 CUCV is always a cool thought. After all, you get K5 Blazer style with military-grade prowess added in. And this one has been upgraded to be exactly how you want it. Because while it\'s still a robust diesel 4x4, it has been restored to be a cool custom with plenty of luxuries and an awesome full stereo system.
It\'s kinda hard not to get excited about an ex-military Blazer. After all, we love the look of the boxy K5s, and the CUCV (Commercial Utility Cargo Vehicle) seems to give it even more purpose. A full steel brush guard, power outlets, a lifted stance, and thick tow hooks front & rear make this look as unstoppable as the US Army. But there\'s a little bit more going on here. The military matte green paint has the kind of even application and quality that can show off the crisp and clean body lines. So despite the stars on the doors, this one looks far nicer than one that just came off of decades in the service.
The matte green returns inside on the steel components, but that\'s nearly your only reminder of this Blazer\'s extra-special nature. That\'s because where CUCV was pure function, this one is all about fresh investments in comfort and style. This has the classic K5 Blazer kind of features, like high-back bucket seats in front, a center console in-between, a comfortable rear bench, power locks, and power windows, including the rear one. The hardtop is still removable for an open-air experience, but the upgraded Dynamat insulation makes it much nicer to have in place, too. There are now nice driver upgrades like the wood-rimmed sports steering wheel, drilled pedals, and white-faced gauges - including the auxiliary ones below the dash. And if you have been looking at the pictures of the interior, then you have certainly seen pieces of the full stereo system upgrade. The Pioneer AM/FM/CD stereo is your gateway to a fourteen-speaker system including the ones in the custom door panels and around the rear wheel well. At the rear are two Hifonics amps, capacitor caps, and four Alpine 15-inch subwoofers. Oh yes, they\'ll hear you coming from blocks away.
Under the hood is the right kind of military force. This 6.2-liter diesel engine is a hardy powerhouse that even saw duty in the HMMWV/Hummer. In fact, it\'s a true military-grade setup with dual batteries and dual alternators. The full package looks clean from a solid investment, and that makes for a confident runner. And that\'s exactly what you want in a go-anywhere 4x4. The big torque of the diesel lets you climb mountains, and there\'s a new set of BF Goodrich All-Terrain tires to dig deep into the trail. Plus, with a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and front discs, it\'s easier than you may think to enjoy a true piece of rugged military hardware.
This Chevy is a true military machine, but it has been given big investment to make sure it has the right skills to also impress in its civilian life. It makes for an awesome and unique 4x4 package you need to get your hands on right now. Call today!!!
