We’re spending the week using the 2020 Chevy Blazer , Chevrolet’s latest two-row midsize crossover that’s positioned between Equinox and the Traverse . The Blazer trips on the GENERAL MOTORS C1 platform distributed to the GENERAL MOTORS CO Acadia and Cadillac XT5 , but thanks to a unique implementation of the structures , it has a front monitor that’s 158 mm wider compared to that of those models. Proportionally, it is about the same height as an Equinox yet is as roughly as wide as being a Traverse , with the length fitting squarely in between those two models.
3 gasoline engines are offered: the naturally-aspirated 2 . 5L LCV I4 ranked at 193 horsepower and 188 pound-feet of torque, the turbo-charged 2 . 0L LSY I4 good for 230 horsepower and 258 pound-feet torque capacity, or the naturally-aspirated 3. 6L LGX V6 which cranks out 308 horsepower and 270 pound-feet torque capacity. All engines are mated towards the GM nine-speed automatic transmission, generating either the front or all four tires.
The Blazer sold in The united states has two rows of seats for a maximum of five occupants. In contrast, the Chinese market blazer has got the three-row Blazer variant .
Our own test unit is the high-end Blazer RS. It has the V6 LGX engine and a twin-clutch all-wheel-drive program. Our model is painted within the optional Iridescent Pearl Tricoat ($995) color with Jet Black permeated leather interior, which comes regular on the RS model. Other illustrates include:

- Bose Premium Audio system
- Lane Change Alert along with Side Window blind Zone Alert , Rear Cross Traffic Notify , Back Park Assist
Our Blazer is also installed with the optional panoramic power sun-roof ($1, 565) for a final MSRP of $43, 935. Starting cost for a front-wheel-drive Blazer L (the base model), powered by the second . 5L LCV four-cylinder engine, will be $29, 995.
Due to its unibody construction and transverse engine settings, this new Blazer is definitely less capable off-road as its predecessors. However, it aims to fill a significant niche for Chevrolet . The two-row middle size SUV segment is growing, with versions like the Kia Edge , Honda Passport, Hyundai Santa Fe, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Nissan Murano, Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport , plus the Of Sorento and the new Toyota Venza , competing to win the sale.
The Blazer aims at taking all of them on by offering a more intense appearance and a sportier driving encounter. From some angles, one may say that it resembles a Chevrolet Camaro while still offering the particular practicality expected of an
