Here’s How Much A Classic Chevrolet K5 Blazer Is Worth Today

We’re taking a deep dive into one of the most sought after classic SUVs that exist today

For a lot of reasons, trucks like the K5 Chevy Blazer can never, ever be built again. It’s all steel and iron construction, dual live rear axles, and sporting of only two doors are things that have fallen out of favor with what American manufacturers think the public wants to buy. In a way though, that only adds to the appeal of the K5, because you’re bound to never see some of its unique quirks ever again.

Happily, though, the fact these trucks were built so tough means there’s still plenty of them still out and about on American roads. Want one of these beauties from the mid to late 20th century for yourself? We think there are a few things you ought to know before you go ahead and buy one.

Here’s How the 2021 Ford Bronco’s Size Compares to Old Broncos

2021 ford bronco vs 1966 bronco

Marc UrbanoCar and Driver

  • The original Ford Bronco was tinier than a modern Ford EcoSport.
  • The new Bronco can be as wide as a 1978 full-size model.
  • The new four-door earns the overall title of Biggest Bronco Ever.

    The original 1966 Ford Bronco was a tiny thing by modern standards, riding on a 92.0-inch wheelbase, standing 68.8 inches wide, and weighing 2880 pounds in U13 roadster trim. In each of those dimensions, it’s dwarfed by the EcoSport, the smallest 4×4 in the modern Ford lineup. In terms of size, there aren’t many modern analogues to that first Bronco. At 152.1 inches long, it’s about a foot and a half shorter than a Toyota Yaris. So you know Ford wasn’t going to build the 2021 Bronco to that scale. But how much bigger is the 2021 version, and how does it compare to the later, F-series–based Broncos? Let’s take a

    Commercial vehicle travel ban ordered. Here’s what it means.

    Commercial vehicles will be barred from several New Jersey highways beginning at 12 p.m. Sunday as a major snowstorm looms, state officials announced.

    The restricted vehicles include tractor-trailers, motorcycles, recreational vehicles, passenger vehicles pulling trailers and “empty straight CDL-weighted trucks,” officials said. They are not allowed on parts of nine highways, although there are exceptions, according to an administrative order from Diane Gutierrez-Scaccetti, the state’s transportation commissioner.

    The restrictions don’t apply to the New Jersey Turnpike, the Garden State Parkway or the Atlantic City Expressway. The order does not have an expiration date. Officials asked all drivers to stay off the road Sunday night and Monday if possible.

    “The safest place to be is at home,” the department said in a statement.

    Restricted highways

    • I-76: From the Walt Whitman Bridge (Pennsylvania border) to NJ Route 42.

    Here’s How to Remove the 2021 Ford Bronco’s Doors and Roof

    • Like the Jeep Wrangler, the 2021 Ford Bronco has removable doors and roof, and here’s how to take them off.
    • The two-door Bronco is a hardtop only, while four-door models can have either a soft or hard top.
    • The front roof panels are removed by releasing a few latches, and the rear panel and doors use tools included in the factory tool kit.

      Ford is going straight for the heart of Jeep with the revival of the Bronco, so it’s no surprise that, like the popular Wrangler, it also has removable doors and roof. Here’s how you remove the doors and roof off the 2021 Ford Bronco:

      The two-door Bronco is a hardtop only and has three panels on the roof—two front sections and a rear section—although a painted top with an additional section over the cargo area is available. Those roof panels can be removed by one person, Ford
