    It can be tough to find the right SUV these days. There are so many options, opinions, and advertisements floating around the internet that you may find yourself in analysis paralysis. The task becomes much easier, though, when stacking your options up and comparing each model’s selling points to determine which is your best option. For example, it could be useful to consider the 2020 Chevy Blazer vs 2020 Nissan Murano, two popular models, and compare their strengths to determine which one is right for you.

    As you investigate these two models, you would be wise to evaluate the big picture for each model rather than pick apart the smaller details. For instance, you will notice that the 2020 Nissan Murano has more horsepower in comparison to the Blazer's standard option, but it does not translate well into performance. Additionally, the Blazer offers two upgraded engines, which bring performance well above the Murano. Plus, this all goes without mentioning that the Blazer starts at a lower price; let’s not forget about that.

    This doesn’t mean that the 2020 Nissan Murano is a bad car, though. It is a popular vehicle with many selling points, but, when stacked against the 2020 Chevy Blazer, it falls short in several key areas. At the end of the day, both are good cars, but the Murano is edged out by the Blazer in more ways than one, which will become evident with a more in-depth comparison.

  • Performance

    Blazing Engines

    If you want a car that can handle itself well while entering freeways or picking up speed at a green light, you should be excited to know more about the engine doing the work in the 2020 Chevy Blazer. There are three different engines to choose from. One option is the 2.5L, 4-cylinder engine that produces 193 hp and 188 lb-ft of torque. This is the standard option on the LT and 1LT trims, but for many drivers, it is worth upgrading as the other engines are much stronger by comparison.

    Alternatively, there is the 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder engine, which boasts 230 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. This is where the Blazer really starts becoming powerful. However, there is a bit more that this SUV offers. The final engine is a 3.6 V6 engine that produces up to 308 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque, which provides quite a zippy experience for you and your equipment that you may be lugging around town or to campsites. And this power is unmatched by the Murano.

    Comparing the Murano

    Switching gears to the 2020 Nissan Murano, there is only one engine option. The engine that comes in all trims of the 2020 Murano is a 3.5 liter DOHC V6 Engine, with 260 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque. As you can see, the Murano may have more horsepower in the standard engine, but when stacked against the Blazer’s alternative trims and engines, it can’t compete.

    Who Takes the Cake?

    While the 2020 Nissan Murano's starting engine has more horsepower and torque, the 2020 Chevy Blazer has a more powerful engine overall when considering the upgraded options. In general, horsepower and torque are important to consider, as the two categories point directly to performance when performing basic activities such as entering freeways or towing equipment. In fact, with the engines that have superior horsepower and torque, the Blazer can tow up to 4,500 lbs in comparison to the Murano's maximum 1,500 lbs. With all of that in mind, the Blazer is the better performing vehicle.

  • Safety

    For many SUV drivers, safety is of the utmost importance. While both vehicles offer great safety features overall, the 2020 Chevy Blazer proves to be the victor in multiple key factors that simply can’t be ignored. Particularly, Chevy’s rearview camera and Teen Driver system push the Blazer ahead of its competitor in this category.

    Staying Safe in the Blazer

    Included in the standard version of the 2020 Chevy Blazer are an HD rear vision camera, LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) system, lane change alert with side blind zone alert, and tire fill alert. The LATCH system is a great feature for drivers with children. Additionally, the Blazer’s lane change and side blind zone alerts are excellent features to ensure that you will be safe while navigating rush hour or while driving through traffic.

    One of the best features offered in the Blazer, though, is the Teen Driver system that Chevy offers. This is a really great feature to have as parents with new drivers. With this Chevy-exclusive feature, parents can control certain settings in the vehicle to ensure their teens are safe. The stereo volume can have a set maximum, as can the driving speed. Plus, this system allows parents to prevent the safety features from being shut off. With the Chevy Blazer, parents can rest easy knowing their teenagers are driving safe.

    The Murano's Safety Features

    The 2020 Nissan Murano has admirable safety features as well, many of which are similar to the Blazer, such as a LATCH system. However, the vehicle overall lacks many features that make the 2020 Chevy Blazer appealing. Most notably, however, is the lack of the special Teen Driver system. This is standard in all Blazers and is not available at any level of the Murano. Therefore, the Chevy Blazer comes out on top of the safety comparison.

  • Features

    When it comes to SUVs, comfortability and special features are highly sought after, as keeping road trips stress-free and enjoyable are of the utmost importance with multiple passengers. With these attributes in mind, the 2020 Chevy Blazer is clearly the victor. The vehicle is easier to use, relax in, and drive. Let's take a look at what makes this true.

    Features of the Blazer

    Standard interior features on the 2020 Chevy Blazer include a host of various small amenities that equate to an elevated experience such as USB data and charging ports, keyless open and start, remote start, and rear air vents. The ability to unlock the car while holding a bundle of groceries or equipment is invaluable at times. And this provides a feeling of luxury as you can start the car without digging through your pockets. And this feeling of luxury is something that the 2020 Nissan Murano simply does not have.

    One great advantage of the 2020 Chevy Blazer’s exterior is that its features consist of deep-tinted glass on the rear side windows and a rear liftgate window, which provides added privacy to your passengers. Plus, the Blazer is completely customizable from the outside with nine colors to pick from, allowing every driver to find one that suits their personality. With these features and color options in mind, the exterior of the Blazer rounds out to be just as great as the interior.

    The Murano's Features

    The 2020 Nissan Murano is not as impressive when it comes to interior features. It truly does not support the variety of features available in the Blazer. It does offer dual illuminated visor vanity mirrors with sun visor extenders, which can be a nice feature if the sun is shining into your car at just the wrong spot. Other than that, it does not offer much more, which puts it far behind the Blazer.

    On the exterior of the 2020 Murano, you will notice the main attraction are the power outside mirrors with LED turn signal indicators. These are meant to be an added safety feature to give others a better indicator of where you plan to direct your vehicle. This is a good feature; however, like the interior, there are not nearly as many exterior features being offered for the Murano as there are with the Blazer. Additionally, the Murano has fewer paint color options, with eight to pick from. In all, the exterior of the Murano is less customizable and does not have as many features as the Blazer, pushing it even further behind in the competition.
