2021 Chevrolet Blazer
The 2021 Chevrolet Blazer SUV is sharp in its design from the inside-out, as it received several minor but significant revisions to its mid-sized crossover. Now standard on the 2LT, 3LT, RS, and Premier models is the Safety Assist Package. High-level V6 and FWD Blazers also get a Trailering Package, which gives the car an added strength of 4500 pounds as opposed to the standard 1500.
Avail. Engine Type
There are three engine choices available for the 2021 Chevrolet Blazer. The first being the 2.5-liter inline-4 engine for the entry-level L and 1LT trims, these FWD models drive on a respectable 193 horsepower with 188 lb-ft of torque. The second engine is the 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4, which gives out 227 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. Many drivers may want to opt for 2LT and 3LT trims, as their engine has a more satisfying kick and gives buyers the option to select AWD. The RS and Premier trims use a 3.6-liter V6 that pushes out 308 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque, this engine also optional on the 2LT and 3LT.
All Blazer’s are paired with a 9-speed transmission and fuel-saving start/stop function. Active grille shutters are also standard, this is useful for good aerodynamics and thermal adeptness.
Driving and Handling
For those who want the most competent drive might want to opt for the 3.6-liter V6 with AWD, as it provides the best torque, driving, and hauling power. This engine is also the most confident, owning to the 9-speed automatic as it’s driving partner. Another feature that enhances ride quality on the RS and Premier trims is the brand’s Driver Confidence II Package, which adds adaptive cruise control, Chevrolet’s Safety Seat, HD surround-view camera, and upgraded emergency braking.
The updated Blazer has come a long way from a 2-door truck to a 4-door God. We love the intense gaze the car gives us with its thin, sharp LED running lights, while the “real” headlights stay hidden underneath. The body lines add to the car’s sleekness while also highlighting the broad build.
The Premier models rock chrome accents and 20-inch wheels, while the RS trim owns its dark exterior accents and revamped exhaust outlets. The 2021 Blazer also adds Pewter, Iron Gray, Cayenne Orange, and Cherry Red to its exterior paint palette.
Inwards, 2-rows can lodge 5 passengers. The cabin is visually appealing with its sporty two-tone color scheme, then ups the ante with comforts (on certain trims) like ambient interior lighting, heated and ventilated front seats, and heated rear seats.
Cargo room reaches up to 30.5 cubic-feet and 64.2 with the rear seats down. Interior color choices include Dark Galvanized/Light Galvanized, Jet Black, and Jet Black/Maple Sugar.
Conveniences that both drives and passengers can enjoy include dual-zone climate control, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, 4G LTE with Wi-Fi, keyless open and start. 1LT adds on Sirius XM radio, then the Premier takes it home with its 8-speaker Bose audio system and heated seats for the front and rear.
Safety Features and Warranty
The 2021 Chevrolet Blazer already wins some brownie points with its 5-Star Crash Test Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Drivers will be even more protected with The Safety Assist package that includes automated emergency braking, automatic high-beams, front pedestrian detection, and lane-keeping assist.
