Since the Chevrolet Blazer’s reintroduction in 2019, it has taken the small SUV market by storm. The 2021 Chevy Blazer’s unique styling, rugged performance, comfort and convenience, and safety features come together to create an exciting compact SUV. You will surely be impressed with what the 2021 Blazer has to offer, so let’s check out some of the best features.
The 2021 Blazer comes in the L, 1LT, 2LT, 3LT, RS, and Premier trim levels. Each trim level is loaded with many available features, so there is a Blazer for everyone. The exterior styling of the 2021 Blazer sets it apart with sleek lines, sweeping curves, a large front grille. It also has custom Chevy wheels, exquisite lighting, and an overall modern aesthetic. The 2021 Blazer will have heads turning as you cruise down the street.
There are three available engines for the 2021 Chevy Blazer. The Blazer’s base engine is a 2.5-liter inline-4 with 193 horsepower and 188 pound-feet of torque. A 2.0-liter turbo-4 engine is the next step up with 227 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. At the top of the line is the 3.6-liter V-6 with 308 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque.
A nine-speed automatic transmission efficiently transfers the power from all three engines to either a front-wheel or an available all-wheel-drive system. Every setup has more than enough power to navigate crowded city streets, cruise down the highway, or take you off the beaten path.
The 2021 Blazer gives you sharper steering and a sporty ride. Curvy back roads and tight city streets are no match for the superior handling of the Blazer. All-wheel drive is available in the 2LT, 3LT, RS, and Premier trim levels. There are two different all-wheel-drive systems depending on the powertrain.
Blazers with 4-cylinder engines have a simple all-wheel-drive setup that remains disconnected from the rear wheels unless the front wheels lose traction. When the front wheels spin, this system engages and sends 50% of the power to the rear wheels to maintain traction and control. Blazers with the V-6 engine introduce a more sophisticated all-wheel-drive system with a twin-clutch differential. This setup moves power across the rear axle, dramatically improving the handling and traction of the 2021 Blazer.
Whether you’re looking to save fuel, tow a trailer, tap into performance, negotiate inclement weather conditions, or get off-road, the Blazer’s driver mode selector gives you control over your driving experience. These modes include Tour, Tow/Haul, Sport, Available All-Wheel Drive, and Off-Road. If you need more room for cargo, the Blazer can tow up to 4,500 pounds when properly equipped. The Blazer’s performance embodies every aspect of what an SUV is and more.
