If you have just seen a slick-looking crossover crossing you with a bristling cool attitude, wearing a Chevrolet logo on its body, it could be the latest 2020 Chevrolet Blazer. We have seen the Blazer last year that already had the necessary things in place. but now that Chevrolet has released the 2020 lineup of this crossover, we wanted to see, what got better with this version.
The comments we overheard at the Twin Falls Chevy dealer showroom, regarding the 2020 year lineup of Chevrolet Blazer made us understand one thing in particular, that this time Chevrolet has decidedly made the Blazer more street-oriented with a couple of styling touches borrowed from its sibling Camaro.
To describe in brief, the 2020 Chevrolet Blazer as a two-row, mid-size crossover beams with style aura while its sporty driving dynamics make it a pet for the driving enthusiasts. On the other hand, its roomy interior ready for hauling your family makes a useful family choice as well.
What has Improved for 2020?
The year 2020 brought some major changes in the lineup of Chevrolet Blazer that are worth the mention. Now you see a new 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine added to the lineup, making 230-hp. It has made it’s a way between the entry-level 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine making 193-hp and the available 308-hp rated V-6 one.
So the 2020 year lineup of Chevrolet Blazer finally counts the trim levels as L, LT, 2LT, 3LT, RS, and Premier.
The 2020 Chevrolet Blazer either runs on its standard 193-hp making 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine or on the optional 308-hp throwing 3.6-litre V-6 one. Both the engine options pair with a nine-speed automatic transmission, while the V-6 alone can be configured with all-wheel drive facility. The Blazer RS trim has shown its acceleration capacity by catching up the speed of 60 mph from a dead 0 in 6.3 seconds and made up the gap between 50 and 70 mph in merely 4.6 seconds. That was an impressive number in its class. The front-wheel-drive models of the 2020 Chevrolet Blazer could tow up to 1500 pounds of maximum weight, while the all-wheel-drive versions could push the digits up to 4500 pounds.
Our test drive with the 2020 Chevrolet Blazer at the Twin Falls Chevy showroom proved the fact, that it has improved a lot in its road handling capability since its last edition. This year we found the Chevrolet Blazer as better composed while the steering felt even more responsive and accurate. Overall all the driving dynamics were more than satisfactory in their spirit and response, even when driven at a low speed. The brake pedal felt firm under the feet and immediately responded even to the lightest inputs, while to a stop from a speed of 70 mph it gave us a gap of 165 feet. With all these improved qualities, the 2020 Chevrolet Blazer can be easily considered as one of the best-driving crossovers in the market that wears the prestigious Chevrolet bow tie.
