For those familiar with the Blazer nameplate of the past, the 2021 rendition will seem alien at first. And that is because the 2021 Chevrolet Blazer has shed its truck-like roots and transformed into a premium crossover that fits in Chevrolet’s lineup between the smaller Equinox and the larger Traverse.
The mid-sized, five-seat crossover comes in five trims, the L, LT, 2LT, RS, and Premier, that range from budget-friendly to down-right luxurious. On top of the five trims, there are also three engine options to choose from, making the Blazer one of the most customizable crossovers on the market.
The first thing you notice on the brand-new 2021 Chevrolet Blazer, though, is its exterior aesthetic as the crossover sports a dashing, extra sleek look with squinting headlights and sharp, modern lines. A very different look from its boxy demeanor of yesterday.
Under the hood, the 2021 Chevrolet Blazer can be equipped with one in three powertrains. The standard engine is a tried-and-true 2.5-liter inline-4 that paired with a 9-speed automatic will deliver 193 horsepower.
A step up and you get the 2.0-liter turbo-4 that comes with the same transmission but offers future owners access to 230 horsepower.
The top of the range is a 3.6-liter V6 that churns out 308 horsepower, enough to give the Blazer a 4,500 pounds towing capacity which is more than the majority of entry-level trucks can muster.
Standard features and trims
The Blazer L comes at under $29,000, a tantalizingly low price for a brand-new mid-sized crossover. And for that price, you get a long list of standard features that include keyless start, 18-inch wheels with all-season tires, an 8.0-inch color touch, Chevrolet’s latest Infotainment System, both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, power features, and Bluetooth audio streaming.
The base Blazer offers great value for money and looks far more expensive than its price tag. A head-turner for the price of a mid-class sedan that will make all its future owners proud to be seen behind the wheel of one.
For just $5,000 more, though, prospective buyers can secure a 2LT Blazer that comes standard with the turbo-4 engine plus Automatic Emergency Braking.
On top of everything else, the 2021 Chevrolet Blazer scored highly on both NHTSA’s and IIHS’s safety tests, a huge plus for a crossover that has families as its main target market.
Between its three engine choices, the five available trims, and the multitude of optional packages, the Blazer can be customized to fit any need perfectly.
