Chevy Trailblazer vs. Blazer: Performance

These two Chevy SUVs each offer something different for Macomb Township drivers, and the right choice is going to depend most on your preferences, lifestyle, and budget. Looking for a compact SUV that’s easy to park and maneuver through traffic in downtown Saint Clair Shores? The Trailblazer is right up your alley. For a more powerful performance and capability, choose the Blazer. Take a look at the specs here:

  • 137 hp / 162 lb-ft of torque

2021 Chevy Blazer Base Engine

  • 193 hp / 188 lb-ft of torque

Chevy Trailblazer vs. Blazer: Dimensions

Both Chevy SUVs offer comfortable seating for up to five adult passengers, with comparable head- and legroom in both rows. Need extra cargo space to accommodate your home improvement projects, camping gear, and more? The Blazer provides about 10 more cubic feet of cargo space than the Trailblazer:

  • Front/Rear Headroom: 40/38.4 inches
  • Front/Rear Legroom: 40.9/39.4 inches
  • Cargo Volume to 1st Row: 54.4 cubic feet

2021 Chevy Blazer Dimensions

  • Front/Rear Legroom: 41/39.6 inches
  • Cargo Volume to 1st Row: 64.2 cubic feet

Chevy Trailblazer vs. Blazer: Standard Features

Like the rest of the Chevy SUV lineup, the Blazer and the Trailblazer offer a generous array of standard features for a very reasonable price. The following technology comes standard on both SUVs:

  • Chevy Teen Driver Technology
  • Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System
  • Diagonal color touchscreen display
  • Apple CarPlay®/Android Auto™ integration
  • Bluetooth® wireless connectivity
  • 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot capability

As you can see from the chart above, the Blazer starting price is about $10,000 higher than the Trailblazer. Aside from its larger size and more powerful engine, the Blazer adds high-end standard features that can only be accessed with a trim upgrade on the Trailblazer, including Active Noise Cancellation and charging-only USB ports.

Chevy Trailblazer vs. Blazer: Safety

All models in the Chevy SUV lineup are now available with Chevy Safety Assist. This suite of active assistive systems acts as an extra set of eyes on the road in New Baltimore, monitoring traction and traffic and assisting when necessary to avoid or mitigate collisions. Standard Chevy Safety Assist features include:

  • Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning
  • Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Following Distance Indicator
  • Front Pedestrian Braking
  • IntelliBeam Headlamps
  • Forward Collision Alert

While Chevy Safety Assist comes standard on the base-level Trailblazer, it’s only available on the Blazer when you upgrade to the 2LT trim level.
