1981 Chevrolet Fullsize K-Blazer vs Ford Bronco Manufacturer Dealer Training Video

Posted on 05. Apr, 2012 by in Chevrolet, Promos


Although it wouldn’t take much to talk us into purchasing either of these full-size SUVs, back in 1981 when they were new Chevrolet made this dealer promo video to illustrate the minute differences between their Blazer and the Ford Bronco.

They start with what is likely the most important factor to any potential full size SUV buyer—Economy. Not surprisingly both get terrible mileage, but the Blazer’s is slightly better. That was of course unless you ordered a new Bronco the right way—a fact Chevrolet does a nice job downplaying.

From there this amusing vintage dealer video outlines exactly how to explain the mostly insignificant differences between the two SUVS. To us it’s worth watching if only to see what a rust free example of both of these trucks actually looked like.

    Thing is, even if ‘real world’ hwy mileage was only 15mpg for the 305, that would have been a whopping 50% (!) improvement over the ‘real world’ 10mpg hwy you got with the ’76 400cid full time 4×4 Blazer.

    The usual hairsplitting, but surprising to hear that cargo/payload was over 1000lbs greater for the Blazer.
