If you know what trim to go for, the latest rendition of the Chevrolet Blazer becomes one of the best value-for-money crossovers on the market. And here at Karl Chevrolet in New Canaan Connecticut, considering we’ve been selling Chevrolet SUVs for decades now, we know precisely which of the Blazer’s trims offers the most for your buck.
For those that still remember the Blazer of the 80s, 90s, and early 2000s, it’s worth mentioning that the 2021 Chevrolet Blazer bears to resemblance to the model bearing the same nameplate from the past. Once a boxy truck, today the Blazer is a dashing mid-sized, five-seat crossover that sports an extra sleek and modern look.
Sharp lines, squinting headlights, and powerful colors make the 2021 Blazer a real head-turner and give it a far pricier look than its tantalizingly low starting price of under $29,000.
All the Blazer’s five trims, the best pick, though, is the 2LT. It starts at around $34,000 and if you read this 3-minute article through, you'll see why we believe the extra $5,000 is definitely worth it.
First of all, the base Blazer is by no means a bad choice. Dubbed the Blazer L, it comes with plenty of standard features such as Chevrolet's latest Infotainment System with a superb 8.0-inch color touch plus both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, Bluetooth audio streaming, power features, keyless start, and 18-inch wheels with all-season tires. It also comes with a tried-and-true 2.5-liter inline-4 engine that, paired with a 9-speed automatic, will churn out 193 horsepower.
With the 2LT you get everything under the L trim but the standard engine is elevated to a 2.0-liter turbo-4 that comes with the same 9-speed automatic to deliver almost 40 horsepower extra for a total of 230. The Blazer also comes with a third, even more, powerful engine option, the 3.6-liter V-6 that will belt out a whopping 308 horsepower, enough to give the Blazer a towing capacity of upwards of 4,500 pounds.
Another great feature that comes with the 2LT trim is the Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection. It’s probably the most sought-after active safety feature on modern cars and comes in handy while driving inside the city.
