    All my research showed 92 as well. But not in a blazer though.
    It was only offered in a blazer in 1994 and it was Turbo.
    Well I will double check maybe it was offered in NA in 92-93 but definitely only in 94 in Turbo mode.
    In 95 they changed to Tahoe.

    well first there was the 1963-1966 "Toro-Flow Diesel" and the 1973-1976 4.8L "In-Line Diesel", the 1978-1981 5.7L "350ci", and the 1982-1991 6.2L "379ci", and the 1992-current 6.5L diesel.
    Note: the first three diesel's I hear are crap, and are no longer in exsistance.
