At first glance, the 2020 Chevy Blazer simply looks like an off-road exclusive SUV, that caters to only a single type of driver. However, the 2020 Chevy Blazer isn’t some underpowered pavement-only-dweller either. The truth of this statement is clear enough in the wide range of configurations that Chevrolet has implemented into their flagship SUV. When you visit our showroom to check out the brand new Chevy Blazer, you’ll find the L, LT, 2LT, 3LT, RS, and Premier trim levels, all of which serve up plenty of value that makes it worth the sticker price.
Before we move into the interior amenities, or the safety package that the 2020 Chevy Blazer comes with, we’ll focus instead on the engine build. Powering every standard model of the new Blazer is a 193 horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that can provide up to 188 lb-ft of torque, so hardly underpowered by any means. This direct-injection engine comes standard with a 9-speed automatic transmission as well as a front-wheel drivetrain that allows the 2020 Chevy Blazer to haul up to 1,500 pounds.
The powertrain ceiling is high for the 2020 Chevy Blazer with some models sporting a 308 horsepower 3.6-liter V-6 engine that isn’t shy about the 270 lb-ft of torque that it puts out. This engine build is also saddled with a 9-speed automatic transmission and with the assistance of an AWD drivetrain, can tow about 4,500 pounds without breaking a sweat. Although, if you’re not looking for top-ranking power, you can instead alter course for the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which sends 230 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque to the wheels. Under the support of an AWD drivetrain and 9-speed automatic transmission, this turbocharged alternative is a great fit for any rugged adventurer.
So, as you can tell, the powertrain options for the 2020 Chevy Blazer are quite diverse. Built to satisfy both the environmentally conscious commuter with an affinity for utility, and the power-centric off-roader with a desire for sheer performance, the 2020 Chevy Blazer can be customized to fit almost any kind of drive style or lifestyle.
