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

John Diether
Automotive Editor - November 8, 2020
  • 2021 Blazer supplies building; 2020s almost gone
  • $4,000 factory rebate on 2020s; $2,750 on 2021s
  • Lease a 2021 from $259 for 36 months
  • 0.9% APR for 72 months + up to $2,000 bonus

What to expect at the dealer:

The carryover 2021 Blazer continues arriving at dealers nationwide and carries a bigger factory rebate this month.

The 2020 Blazer is now downright scarce. We expect it sell out this month.

Current offers from Chevy expire November 30, 2020 unless otherwise noted and can vary by region. Chevy often enhances incentives ahead of Black Friday weekend.

Up to $4,000 off:

Chevy now offers a $3,500 rebate on the 2020 Blazer to all buyers. The rate on the 2021 Blazer has just increased to $2,250.

New this month a $500 Cyber Cash coupon available on the Chevrolet website. You can request a coupon code to be redeemed at the time of purchase. The coupon is good on both model years, and you can combine it with the regular rebate and APR offers.

Leasing looks great:

Current lessees of any brand can now lease a 2021 Blazer 1LT from $259 for 36 months (10,000 miles a year) with $1,349 due at signing.

The effective monthly cost of this lease is $296, an exceptional value for this price class. If you're not currently in a lease, your total cost may be higher, but you can still expect very good value.

The current offer on the same 2020 Blazer model is actually a few dollars more, so by all means go with a 2021 model if you decide to lease.

APR and cash combos:

Instead of the full rebate, Chevy now offers 0.9% financing for 72 months on both the 2020 and 2021 Blazer.

The low rate comes with $2,000 bonus cash on 2020s, and $750 on 2021s. That's in addition to the $500 Cyber Cash coupon.

2021 Chevrolet Blazer Overview

John Diether
Automotive Editor

What's New

The 2021 Chevrolet Blazer enters its third year on the market in its current form with minimal changes. The midsize crossover gained an available four-cylinder turbocharged engine last year to broaden its appeal. The Blazer ranks between the compact Chevrolet Equinox and three-row Chevrolet Traverse in the brand's lineup.

Choosing Your Chevrolet Blazer

The Blazer is available in six trims: L, 1LT, 2LT, 3LT, RS, and Premier. Pricing once again starts at $29,995 including destination and tops out at $44,195 for the Premier.

Engine Choices

The Blazer L and 1LT carry a normally-aspirated four-cylinder engine. The 2LT and 3LT come standard with a turbocharged four-cylinder, and a V6 engine is available for $1,150. The RS and Premier get the V6 as standard.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (Combined)
2.5L 4-Cylinder193 hp188 lb-ft23 mpg
2.0L Turbo 4-Cylinder230 hp258 lb-ft25 mpg
3.6L V6308 hp270 lb-ft22 mpg

All three engines use a nine-speed automatic transmission. Every Blazer starts out with front-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is available with the turbo-four ($2,000) and the V6 ($2,800). AWD reduces fuel economy ratings by one mpg.

Four-cylinder models are rated to tow 1,500 pounds. The V6 gooses capacity to 4,500 pounds.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Blazer is a two-row crossover with generous room for five passengers. There's 30.5 cubic feet of cargo behind the rear seat, and 64.2 cubic feet with it folded. That's slightly more than smaller Equinox and far less than the Traverse.

Safety Features

The entry-level L offers no driver assistance safety features aside from the government-mandated review camera. Buyers have to move up to the 2LT to get standard automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, and automatic high beams.

On the 1LT and 2LT, you can order the $1,845 Convenience and Driver Confidence Package, which counts blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane change alert, and rear parking sensors among its many features. These features become standard on the 3LT and higher.

The 3LT's available Sound and Technology Package ($1,400) includes a surround-view camera system and a rearview camera mirror. On the RS and Premier, the Driver Confidence II Package ($1,650) brings adaptive cruise control, an enhanced automatic emergency braking system, and the surround-view camera and rearview camera mirror.

The Blazer earns a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA.


The Blazer starts out with an 8-inch infotainment touchscreen, six audio speakers, wi-fi capability, two front and two rear USB ports, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Satellite radio is standard on the 1LT and above, while the RS and Premier get navigation.

The 3LT's Sound and Technology Package provides navigation, an eight-speaker Bose sound system, and a 120-volt outlet, among other features. The RS picks up all of that except the Bose system, which remains optional as part of the $1,660 Enhanced Convenience Package.

Wireless device charging is limited to the Driver Confidence II Package available on the RS and Premier.

L - From $29,995

The L carries cloth upholstery, a six-way manual driver and four-way manual passenger seat, a 4.2-inch driver information display, dual-zone automatic climate control, keyless entry, push button start, heated side mirrors, and 18-inch alloy wheels.

Consistent with its bargain mission, the only interior color is black, and the outside is limited to white, black or silver. There are no factory options for the L.

1LT - From $33,495

The 1LT gets an eight-way power driver seat, deep tinted privacy glass, a spare tire, a roadside emergency kit, and an expanded color pallet.

In addition to features already mentioned, the Convenience and Driver Confidence Package ($1,845) adds heated fronts seat, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a power liftgate, remote start, roof rails, and a universal home remote.

2LT - From $34,295

The 2LT gains the turbocharged four-cylinder engine, and the V6 is available as an upgrade. This is the trim that gets automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assist, automatic high beams, and more standard.

The available Redline Edition ($1,895) wears 20-inch black wheels with red accents and exterior trim in the same scheme.

3LT - From $38,495

The Blazer 3LT features a leather interior, a six-way power passenger seat, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, remote start, a power liftgate, black roof rails, and auto-dimming side mirrors with turn signal indicators.

RS - From $41,995

Stepping up to the RS brings standard V6 power, sportier exterior styling, 20-inch wheels, a hands-free power liftgate, a heated steering wheel, ambient interior lighting, and an 8-inch driver information display.

Besides the Bose audio system, the Enhanced Convenience Package ($1,660) furnishes a power-adjustable steering wheel, ventilated front seats, heated rear outboard seats, and memory settings for the driver's seat, side mirrors, and steering wheel.

A panoramic sunroof becomes available for $1,595.

Premier - From $44,195

The Premier distinguishes itself chrome exterior accents, silver roof rails, and machine-finished aluminum wheels. It also gets the heated outboard rear seats, ventilated front seats, power steering column, memory settings, and eight-speaker Bose audio system.

CarsDirect Tip

The L and 1LT come off as rather basic for this class of vehicle. The upper three 2021 Chevy Blazer trims provide a solid dose of luxury, though it comes at a price. This leaves the 2LT with the right mix of standard and optional equipment in our view.
