The Blazer offers different looks depending on the model, headlined by the Camaro-like aesthetic offered in sporty RS trim.
Available features include a sliding rear seat, a Hitch Guidance system for those who tow, heated steering wheel and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, adaptive cruise control, a rear-view camera mirror, automatic tailgate, wireless phone charging, and up to six USB ports.
All models offer selectable driving modes, and there are two flavors of all-wheel drive available. The RS and Premier trim levels get a more sophisticated, higher-performance twin-clutch AWD system. The Blazer can two up to 4,500 pounds with the V-6 and offers a hitch-view camera feature that helps in aligning the hitch with the trailer.
The Blazer's base engine is a 193-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder that puts out 188 pounds-feet of torque. Optional is a 305-hp, 3.6-liter V-6 that puts out 269 pounds-feet of torque. Both pair with a nine-speed automatic transmission and have stop-start systems at idle.
