The 2020 Chevrolet Blazer is a midsize SUV that features design cues taken from the Chevy Camaro. Whether driving the kids to school or heading out for a weekend trip, Blazer owners don’t have to settle for another boring crossover. The Blazer is a joy to drive, with a sporty ride that’s delighting buyers at dealers like Greenacres Chevrolet. The Blazer’s base engine provides some of the highest fuel economy numbers in the segment, and buyers can choose a more powerful V6.
The Blazer seats five passengers in two rows. According to the Greenacres Chevrolet dealer, the 2020 Blazer is offered in four trim levels: L, LT, RS, and Premier. The LT comes in three subtrims: 1LT, 2LT and 3LT. We’ll go over the different trim levels and see what each one offers to buyers.
The base L trim is powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 193 horsepower and 188 lb-ft of torque, mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission that’s standard on all models. This engine is also standard on the 1LT subtrim. The L comes with 18-inch wheels, heated mirrors, xenon headlights, keyless ignition and entry, rear air vents, two-zone automatic climate control, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, an 8-inch touchscreen, a six-speaker stereo, two USB-C ports, two USB ports and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.
The Blazer 1LT starts with the features of the L trim and adds tinted glass, a power-adjustable driver's seat, a spare tire and satellite radio. The 2LT and 3LT are equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that generates 230 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. The 2LT can get optional all-wheel drive. The 3LT gets a power liftgate, auto-dimming driver-side and rearview mirrors, black roof rails, remote engine start, heated front seats, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, leather upholstery, rear parking sensors and a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert.
The RS and Premier trims get a 3.6-liter V6 that puts out an impressive 308 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. The 2LT and 3LT can get this engine as an option. The RS features sporty styling and comes with 20-inch wheels, dual exhaust tips, a blacked-out front grille, a hands-free liftgate, ambient lighting, a heated steering wheel, a navigation system, an upgraded driver information display, an extra set of USB-C and USB ports, an adjustable cargo management system and a household-style power outlet.
Step up to the top-of-the-line Premier and you’ll get all the features of the RS plus chrome exterior accents, ventilated front seats, driver-seat memory settings, heated rear seats, a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, simulated suede cabin trim and a Bose audio system with eight speakers.
Most of the features of the upper trims are available on the lower trims as part of packages. Other options include a wireless charging pad, a 360-degree parking camera, lane departure warning and mitigation, adaptive cruise control, and forward collision alert with pedestrian detection and automatic braking. An available Safety Alert Seat works in concert with the other safety equipment to alert the driver to dangers by vibrating on the side of the seat that corresponds to the side of the vehicle where the danger is detected.
