An SUV should get you to the place. Just as easily as an SUV gets you to the workplace, it should be able to get you to your happy place. An SUV should also give you your space.

At the intersection of reliability and recreation, there’s the 2020 Chevrolet Blazer.
With quality specs, a five-star NHTSA safety rating, and a spacious interior, the 2020 Chevrolet Blazer is a dependable SUV that makes room for adventure. With this post, we’ll examine the performance, design, and features of the Chevy Blazer to help you decide if it’s the right ride for you.
Here’s an overview of who’ll likely enjoy the Chevy Blazer:

Power and Mileage
With the 2020 Blazer, Chevrolet has delivered an SUV with some quality specs. Every variation of the Blazer has a 9-speed automatic transmission with overdrive and auto-manual. Depending on the trim and drive, the Blazer gets between 21 and 24 mpg when looking at city and highway driving in combination.
Horsepower varies a bit more between trims than mileage does: The L and LT/w1LT versions have 193 horsepower engines. The LT/w2LT and LT/w3LT up the horsepower to 230 (and have slightly improved mileage). And RS and Premium models bump the horsepower all the way up to 308—but lose some fuel efficiency as a result.
The LT/w2LT and LT/w3LT also operate on premium gas (all other versions of the Blazer take regular unleaded), so drivers should take the fueling cost difference into account when making their decision.
Safety and Tech
The 2020 Chevrolet Blazer has received a safety rating of five stars from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (the highest rating possible). The Blazer’s standard safety features include daytime running lights, a post-collision safety system, and 4-wheel ABS.
If a driver wants more than the Blazer’s baseline safety features, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, and crash imminent braking options are available as upgrades. Lane departure warning alerts drivers when they shift lanes unintentionally. Forward collision warning helps drivers avoid potential collisions by detecting obstacles in the vehicle’s path. And crash imminent braking automatically applies the brakes in the event that a driver is unable to slow their vehicle manually.
Interior and Style
Chevrolet’s 2020 Blazer is ideal for road trips with friends and family. The SUV has a cargo capacity of 30.5 cubic feet with all five seats in place and a max capacity of 64.2 cu ft. Additional interior features include universal tablet holders, front/rear cupholders, and an integrated sound system. With six total speakers, the Blazer’s sound system includes both AM/FM stereo and satellite radio.
As for exterior features, the Blazer is available in eleven colors. Whatever color option a driver selects, the Blazer’s standard 20” gloss black aluminum wheels, black roof rack cross rails, and molded assist steps make it clear that the 2020 Chevy Blazer is an SUV that’s ready for road tripping.
