Model Preview

The Chevy Blazer nameplate returned in 2019, but its styling left it a distant relative to the legendary SUV that once roamed the streets. With this wild-looking crossover still fresh, we expect the 2021 Chevy Blazer to hit showrooms as a carryover model.

The new-generation Chevy Blazer hit showrooms in 2019 with a design that was nothing like its predecessors. Its Camaro-inspired design language includes a bold dual-port grille, thin LED headlights, eye-grabbing body lines and ridges, flashy wheel options, a forward-leaning liftgate, and more. We expect this design to remain unchanged when the 2021 Blazer hits showrooms.

Inside, things calm down a bit, but the Blazer still opt for the sportier take with its round air vents, sharp stitching, sporty dash insert, and “floating” infotainment screen. We expect this sharp design to roll into the 2021 Blazer unaltered.

We anticipate no changes underhood when the 2021 Blazer arrives. If this is the case, it’ll come standard with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 193 horsepower and 188 pound-feet of torque. Up one step will be a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 230 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. Topping the range will be a 3.6-liter V6 with 308 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. All three engines will pair with an eight-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive o optional all-wheel drive.

The IIHS is still working on its tests for the Blazer, but the NHTSA gives it a glowing five-star review. Its only hiccup is a four-star rating in the rollover test, which is actually decent for a crossover. Where the Blazer falls short is that Chevy buried advanced safety features like automatic emergency braking, forward-collision alert, following-distance indicator, pedestrian braking, lane-keep assist, and more in packages in the two highest trims, the RS and Premier.

Pricing & Release Date

There is no official release date for the 2021 Chevy Blazer, but based on previous release schedules, we expect it to arrive in the fall of 2020.

Pricing is also uncertain, but with no changes expected, we anticipate no big shifts from the current MSRP range of $29,995 to $46,795 (destination fees included).

This midsize crossover will compete with the Ford Edge, GMC Acadia, and Honda Passport.
