The 2020 Blazer as a crossover from Chevrolet surely adds some value to the segment it belongs to, but is it a standalone in its class? Well, opinions might differ, but when we first got to see and explore the 2020 Blazer model at the showroom of a famous Chevrolet dealer serving Pocatello, we were deeply impressed with what it stood for.
Overall Visual Impression
The 2020 Chevrolet Blazer is framed in a slick body, that is essentially street-oriented. It is a crossover that is bristling with energy at outside, while its interior cabin maintains a sublime cool.
The two-rowChevrolet Blazer of the 2020 edition comes in the category of mid-size crossover, that sides more with the stylish end making some significant rivals feel the discomfort when it comes to their sales record. The credit must go to the looks that distinguishes itself from the monotonous frames of the over saturated crossovers that we get to see every now and then. But that wouldn’t have sone the job well, unless the sporty driving dynamics was there to round up the circle in a perfect shape.
So, if you are in a look out for a vehicle that will stand out in the parking slot while serving all the utility purposes with ease, then the 2020 Chevrolet Blazer is of course a model that deserves to be listed on the top.
Lineup Offered for the Year 2020
After the 2019 refreshment, the year 2020 could bring only few major changes to the lineup of Chevrolet Blazer. Among them, the most notable is the new 230-hp making 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine that sits between the base modelrunning on 2.5-liter four-cylinder making 193-hp and the available V-6 engine cranking out 308-hp.
This new engine reshuffles the trim levels of the 2020 year series, counting them as L, LT, 2LT, 3LT, RS, and Premier. In the row, the lower two trims L and LT are given the 2.5-liter engine, while the higher ones like the 2LT and 3LT and the V-6 as well as the RS and Premier models run on the higher capacitive engines mentioned above.
All the engines pair with a nine-speed automatic transmission, but among them only the V-6 models can be configured with all-wheel drive.
Superior Performance and Handling
Our test drive with the 2020 Chevrolet Blazer at the showroom of Pocatello Chevrolet dealer confirmed out belief that the model is a standalone in its class not only from the angle of its overall appearance, but also in its nimble handling and superior performance. It drove through all the road conditions with a steady composure, and that could be achieved because of the accurate steering, highly responsive brakes and excellent tuning of the suspension.
The interior atmosphere remained peaceful and completely hushed up even when we were driving through uneven surfaces and at real highway speed. The test vehicle was of RS model that came to a complete stop from a speed of 70 mph within 165 feet.
There are much more appreciable factors stacked up in the 2020 lineup of Chevrolet Blazer that undoubtedly can claim to be called as a standalone in its class.
