Crossovers and SUVs are vehicle types that have taken charge of the automotive market, downsizing many other body styles that so long had a prominent place there. If you randomly pick the 2020 edition of Chevrolet Blazer, it might appear as just another addition to this over saturated segment. But if you decide to explore the lineup, we are pretty sure that you’ll be smitten by many of its virtues in the very first few minutes. We are saying this from our test drive experience that we gathered at the Twin Falls Chevrolet dealer showroom.
The mid-size, two-row crossover 2020 Chevrolet Blazer, will catch your eyes at the first instance with its stylish demeanor, while its performance oriented driving dynamics will make the vehicle stand out in its segment. Then comes its roomy and comfortable cabin that feels useful outright there, when you are looking for a vehicle to haul your family and travel with them with an assurance of road safety. What more? Take a look below to make sure if the 2020 Blazer is merely another crossover from Chevrolet or has it got its unique place in its class.
Features Added for 2020
The year 2020 will be considered as significant if you are tracking the major changes done to the new model Blazer from Chevrolet. For this year Chevrolet pushed the lineup of Blazer to the next level by adding up a new 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine to fetch 230 of hp stacking it just above the base model that is using a non-turbo 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine making 193 of hp and the more powerful V-6 engine making 308 of hp.
This new engine now stretches the 2020 lineup with trims known as L, 2.5L, 3.6L cloth, 3.6L leather, RS, and Premier. The L and LT trims at the lower end got to ride with the 2.5-liter engine configured with front-wheel-drive, while the 2LT and 3LT trims are set with the new turbo four engine as standard with options to be driven with all-four-wheels as well as upgrading to the V-6 engine, that comes standard configuration for the RS and Premier trims.
Dynamics of Driving
Our test drive with the 2020 Chevrolet Blazer at the Twin Falls Chevrolet dealership made us experience how a car can move with such steadily maintained composure. Its accurate steering should be given equal credit for this achievement that makes the driver feel confident through all driving situations, especially while driving through the twisty roads. The brakes were highly responsive, that listened to the driving inputs enabling the 2020 Blazer to stop completely dead from a speed of 70 mph at an impressive distance of 165 feet.
The newly added 18-inch wheels gained the 2020 Blazer the correct ride height necessary for off-roading ventures. The upgraded suspensions soaked up all the road imperfections, while the active noise cancellation system didn’t allow any external noise enter the serene cabin, that has more than enough space allotted for every passenger, and all the necessary luxury appointments that completes the circle of a composed ride.
