The 2020 Chevrolet Blazer - one of the few great things about the year 2020
This year’s been tough.
Quite tough, and we’re only halfway through it.
But there are still great things about it. Albeit not many.
One of those things is the brand-new 2021 Chevrolet Blazer. Built under the tagline “bigger, better, bolder”, the eight-person full-sized SUV delivers on every one of those promises.
For the 2020 model year, the Blazer expands in size to offer third-row passengers more legroom and expand the vehicle’s cargo space to a 25.5 cubic feet behind the third row and 122.9 cubic feet with the second and third rows folded.
But before you get to take in all the interior improvements, the first thing you’ll notice is the Blazer’s new appearance. Unapologetic about its size, the 2020 Blazer sports a commanding presence and a very aggressive look – you shouldn’t be too surprised if cars seem to get out of your way as you drive the Blazer down the street.
It's also intelligently designed so that the LED strips on each side of the grille cut into it giving the front a slender, nimble feel. The 2020 Blazer looks both able to take on an army and ready for a race at the same time.
Two V-8s and a turbodiesel
There are three engines to choose from.
The base powertrain is the 5.3-liter V-8 that can produce 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, enough to tow up to 8,400 pounds.
The stronger available V-8 is reserved for the High Country top trim and it comes in the form of a 6.2-liter engine that can belt out 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque.
Both V-8s tap the same responsive 10-speed automatic.
Later this year the lineup will be completed with a 3.0-liter inline-6 turbodiesel that will deliver 277 horsepower and an impressive 460 pound-feet of torque that will come in handy while towing.
Standard features? Yes, please, and keep them coming!
From safety to entertainment, connectivity to comfort, the 2021 Blazer seems to have everything covered.
Safety-wise, all future owners can depend on systems such as Automated Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Automatic Headlights, Rear-seat Reminder, and Parking Alerts.
The list of standard features also includes perks such as a huge 10.2-inch color touch, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, and Bluetooth audio streaming. The full list for the base model is yet to be released but we know what the middle trim, the LT, will look like.
It comes with a set of ten-way power-adjustable and heated front seats, keyless access and ignition, wireless smartphone charging, a nine-speaker Bose audio system, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, leather trim for the front seats, plus six USB ports, two for every row of seats.
