will an infant car seat fit in a Chevy blazer?

Hey do any of you ladies own or have you owned a newer Blazer and would an infant car seat with the base fit? I'm most likely going to purchase a newer blazer here in the next week or so but I have not bought a seat yet.

Re: will an infant car seat fit in a Chevy blazer?

  • I had a 2000 Chevy Blazer with DD and it fit just fine.  HTH!

  • The carseat will fit in almost every make and model of cars made in the last 30 years.

    kind of true. We had a Corolla. Could we fit an infant seat in the back? Yes. But it made it almost impossible to have a passenger in the front seat because you had to push the seat so far forward. OP - you can go to Babies R Us and try putting carseats in your car. It was really helpful! Just ask at the service desk.

  • There are different models. The extended model with the optional third row has a little more room in  the back seat I beleive. I own the standard model and the handle on the infant seat I had with DD had to stay up in order from both seats front seat to be all the way back.

  • Thanks ladies, I just wanted to make sure. But the Babies-R-us thing is a good idea, I never thought of that. But it should be fine, I hope. Fingers crossed. I just haven't found out the sex yet so I haven't wanted to buy a car seat, but maybe i just should anyway, if it's a girl than I can get one of those super cute car seat covers lol

  • Like prev posters have said, it's more of matter of which one will fit (rather than will any car seat fit). Its strange how some fit completely different than others.

    Several sites and books I've seen recommend either trying them out before buying (if the store allows- one of the PP above said BRU does this, I haven't tried this), or to keep tags/receipts so you can return if it doesnt fit.

  • You  mean a Trailblazer right?  Blazer are no longer made past the 90's I believe.  We have a 2008 Trailblazer SS (Which is a tad smaller than a regular one), and my son was RFing in a convertible for months and it was just fine.  We also had a graco snug ride that fit just fine.  I think our trailblazer is plenty spacious. I would recommend if your DH is tall to put the baby on the passenger side because the seat will have to come forward.

  • I've seen an infant car seat in a prius, that being said, I'm sure it will fit. I've seen 2 forward facing car seats and an infant car seat in a equinox, and those are about the same size.

    No, 3 carseats will not fit in the back seat of a Trailblazer.  But 2 will fit just fine, we've tired it in ours.

    Depends on the seat... Sunshine radian seats would probably fit like this - they are some of the most narrow seats - you can fit 3 across in a sedan. 

  • I do not have a picture of the equinox, but I remember my friend having a Dodge intrepid and fit 3 seats across the back. The other day we tried my Graco infant seat (which is part of a travel system) with her two evenflo forward facing seats, really tight fit, but it did. Here is a picture of a 2002 Chevy Trail Blazer. image
