Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

What you must know before buying the Chevrolet Blazer

Automotive Editor - December 10, 2019
  • 2019 Blazer supplies holding up; 2020s arriving
  • Employee Pricing + $1,000 rebate on 2019s; $1,500 on 2020s
  • Lease a 2019 from $289 for 36 months
  • See dealers for financing options

The Blazer is back:

The Chevrolet Blazer returns for 2019 after a 14-year absence. The latest iteration is a sharply styled, two-row crossover slotted between the compact Equinox and full-size Traverse. The Blazer got off to a late start this year, so supplies are still relatively good. Pricing has improved significantly since the model's introduction.

The carryover 2020 Blazer began arriving at dealers last month. The 2.0T model gains two trim levels, 2LT and 3LT. Both are available with a new Redline appearance package featuring a blacked-out exterior. Order guides show the V6 engine as a $500 standalone option this year.

Current offers from Chevy expire January 2, 2020 unless otherwise noted and can vary by region.

Save a bundle this month:

Everyone can now get GM Employee Pricing on a 2019 Blazer. That's in addition to this month's $1,000 cash rebate.

You're sure to make out very well with this promotion. The total savings on the RS model, for example, works out to $5,190.

As for the 2020 Blazer, there's a $1,500 rebate for all buyers.

Solid lease value:

Like last month, you can lease a 2019 Blazer 1LT (with 2.5-liter engine and cloth interior) from $289 for 36 months (10,000 miles a year) with $3,629 due at signing.

The effective monthly cost of this lease is $390, a good value for this price class.

The initial offer on the incoming 2020 Blazer 1LT is $319 a month with $3,639 at signing. With an effective monthly cost of $420, this isn't a good value in our book. Terms will certainly improve once the 2019s are gone.

If you finance:

There are no factory APR offers on the Blazer this month. We do expect Chevy to offer special rates on the 2020s early next year. For now, see your local dealer for a rate quote.

2020 Chevrolet Blazer Overview

Willis Kuelthau
Automotive Editor

What's New

Even though it’s only been around for a year, the 2020 Chevrolet Blazer sees a major addition: a new engine. Coming off its debut in 2019, the mid-size crossover adds a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that already powers the Cadillac XT4.

The turbo-four joins the Blazer’s two existing engines, slotting in between the two as an option on the two middle trims. The trims are organized a little differently for 2020, but the Blazer is otherwise largely unchanged from last year.

Choosing Your Chevrolet Blazer

The Chevy Blazer comes in six trims: L, 1LT, 2LT, 3LT, RS, and Premier. The starting price for a Blazer L checks in at $29,995 including destination, while it tops out at $43,895 for a Premier model.

Engine Choices

The new addition brings the Blazer’s engine lineup to three. The L and 1LT are only available with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder; the 2LT and 3LT get the new 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder as standard while a 3.6-liter V6 is optional for $500; and the RS and Premier are exclusively available with the V6.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (Combined)
2.5L 4-Cylinder193 hp188 lb-ft23 mpg
2.0L Turbo 4-Cylinder230 hp258 lb-ftNot Yet Rated
3.6L V6308 hp270 lb-ft21 mpg

All three engines come with a nine-speed automatic transmission. The base engine is only available with front-wheel drive, but the others can power all four wheels for a surcharge of $2,000 for the turbo or $2,650 for the V6.

The EPA hasn’t tested the Blazer with its new powertrain, but it'll likely be the most efficient of the bunch.

If you’re looking to tow a trailer, you’ll want the V6. Both of the four-cylinder engines are limited to a 1,500 pound payload, while the larger V6 can pull a more SUV-like 4,500 pounds.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

All Blazers can seat up to five passengers, with healthy interior space and a rear seat that can slide back and forth on a track.

The back can swallow 30.5 cubic feet of cargo, or 64.2 cubic feet with the rear seats folded. That’s only slightly more than the compact Chevrolet Equinox, and it’s low compared to rivals like the Ford Edge or Nissan Murano.

Safety Features

The Blazer may wear modern crossover looks, but it hasn’t quite caught up on safety tech. There are no standard active safety features on the base model – as more and more brands make these features standard, this is a regrettable omission for a family crossover.

The 3LT gets blind-spot monitoring, lane change alert, rear cross-traffic alert, and rear parking sensors. On 1LT and 2LT models, these four features are available through the Convenience and Driver Confidence Package ($1,845).

A surround-view camera becomes available starting on the 3LT, while buyers can bundle the surround-view camera, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, and forward collision warning on the RS through the Enhanced Convenience and Driver Confidence II Package ($3,575). The safety features cost $2,165 on the Premier through the Driver Confidence II Package.


All Blazers run Chevy’s Infotainment 3 system through an 8-inch touchscreen with USB ports, Bluetooth, wi-fi hot spot capability, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Navigation is standard on the RS and Premier, and available on the 3LT.

L - From $29,995

To manage a starting price under $30,000, the Blazer L keeps things simple. Cloth features, manual seat adjustment, and the most basic infotainment system are standard. Black, white, and silver are the only exterior options. It does get a few luxury touches like HID headlights, dual-zone climate control, keyless entry, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and 18-inch alloy wheels.

1LT - From $33,495

Stepping up to the 1LT trim adds an eight-way power driver’s seat, a satellite radio trial subscription, tinted windows, and a host of available options. This trim opens up more exterior color options, available 20-inch rims ($1,995), and a rear-seat infotainment system ($1,995).

The aforementioned safety features are bundled in the Convenience and Driver Confidence Package ($1,845), which also includes heated front seats, remote start, and a power liftgate. Buyers can have a roof rack and side assist steps in the Hit the Road Package ($1,050), but they’ll need the previous package selected first.

2LT - From $33,995

The 2LT trim is identical to the 1LT in terms of standard equipment except for its engine. It gets the turbocharged 2.0-liter engine, but can have the V6 for an extra $500.

The other change is the available Redline Edition ($1,895), which adds a variety of sporty red aesthetic cues. Once again, it requires the Convenience and Driver Confidence Package be selected.

3LT - From $38,195

The Blazer 3LT adds leather upholstery, heated front seats, remote start, the power liftgate, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, roof rails, blind-spot monitoring, lane change alert, and rear cross-traffic alert.

Navigation is found in the Sound and Technology Package ($1,400) alongside a Bose eight-speaker audio system, the surround-view camera, and a rear camera mirror.

RS - From $41,795

Pushing into luxury territory, the RS trim includes navigation, a heated steering wheel, a 120-volt outlet, a larger 8-inch driver information display, and ambient lighting. The exterior gets 20-inch rims, a hands-free liftgate, and a more aggressive look.

This trim is the first to see advanced safety features like adaptive cruise control, but getting them means adding the pricey Enhanced Convenience and Driver Confidence Package II Package ($3,575). This also includes the Bose audio system, wireless charging, heated rear seats, and more. A panoramic sunroof can be added for $1,595.

Premier - From $43,895

The range-topping Premier tosses in a few more standard features, like cooled front seats, heated rear seats, a power adjustable steering column, the Bose audio system, and memory functionality for the driver's seat, side mirrors, and steering wheel.

Here, the safety features are available on their own for $2,165 through the Driver Confidence II Package, while the sunroof remains a $1,595 standalone option.

CarsDirect Tip

We like the 2020 Chevrolet Blazer best once it has safety equipment and the V6. That means the RS or Premier trim, which start to compete against true luxury crossovers.
