It’s safe to say that the 2010s will go down in automotive history as the “Decade of the SUVs”. These high-riding, family-friendly vehicles have slowly – but surely – taken over our city streets, freeways, and parking lots.
And this SUV trend is showing no signs of slowing down. According to LMC Automotive’s forecasts, SUV sales will continue to surge in the foreseeable future, and are expected to account for 40% of all global car sales by 2025.
Considering this global SUV boom, Chevrolet has seemingly played a master stroke by pulling out and reviving one of the most iconic names from its archives: the Blazer. Yes, you read that right. The Chevy Blazer is back, and it’s better than ever.
Sporting the design cues that made the original Blazer such a legend, plus all the high the high-tech goodies you’d expect to find on a modern mid-range mini SUV, the 2020 Chevy Blazer has all the ingredients to become an instant success.
If you’re in the market for a mini-SUV, here are some of the reasons why you should definitely consider the all-new Chevy Blazer.
There’s no other way of saying it: The Chevy Blazer is easily one of the most distinctive offerings in the mini-SUV segmented. With an exterior styling that’s inspired by the wildly popular Camaro muscle car, the 2020 Blazer has a road presence that very few – if any – of its rivals can match. Its muscle car aesthetics are like a breath of fresh air in a segment that’s inundated with boxy, utilitarian designs.
The Blazer has an aggressive, sporty stance. We particularly love the front fascia with that large blacked-out grill, the sporty front-splitter and those sleek daylight-running headlamps. If you want a sporty-looking SUV, you can’t do much better than the Chevrolet Blazer at the moment.
Does this new SUV have the oomph to go with its sporty exterior? You bet it does. The new Chevy Blazer blazes in (pun intended) with a robust 3.6-liter (223 cubic-inch) V6 that’s mated to a 9-speed smooth-shifted automatic transmission with paddle-shifters for manual operation. The result? Well, you get around 310 hp and 270 lbs-ft. of torque.
So, what happens when you mesh the gas pedal into the carpet on an open road? Well, let us provide you with some performance figures:
Although the Chevy Blazer doesn’t offer sports car levels of performance, it’s easily one of the most brisk vehicles in the mini-SUV segment.
Mini-SUVs – or crossovers as they’re referred to – rarely offer an exciting driving experience, which really isn’t surprising. A hefty curb weight coupled with a high center of gravity really takes the ‘sports’ out of the sports utility vehicle.
However, this isn’t the case with the new Chevy Blazer. It feels planted, agile and, surprisingly responsive on the road. Moreover, the sound deadening and drive quality are superb as well, which make the Chevy Blazer a superb long-distance family cruiser.
Last but not the least, the all-new Blazer is also offered with a clever 4-wheel drive system, which means you can take this beast off-road.
If you think that the exterior of the 2020 Chevy Blazer looks sporty and exotic, wait ‘till you open those finely-chiseled doors. The interior of the new Blazer is even more heavily inspired by the Camaro than the exterior – which isn’t a bad thing it all.
It’s a cacophony of sporty angular design elements. You get a beautiful two-tone interior and most of the dash and buttons are made from high-quality soft-touch plastic. Depending on the trim level you opt for, high-end leather trimmings aren’t lacking as well.
Moving on to the features department, you get an intuitive climate-control system, a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment with Chevrolet’s own proprietary UI, and a whole host of advanced safety and electronic driving assist features based on the trim level and package you opt for.
All in all, the interior of the all-new Chevy Blazer is truly a wonderful place to be.
If you’ve booked yourself a 2020 Chevy Blazer, we congratulate you! You’ve got yourself one of the most beautiful SUVs on the market. However, you’d want to do everything you can to ensure you’re Chevy Blazer remains beautiful for years.
While many people spend a lot of money on wax polishes and car detailing materials to ensure their car looks great on the outside, not many car owners pay attention to interior maintenance. Auto interior upholstery, carpeting, mats, and trims are subjected to constant wear and tear, including beverage and food spills, dirt and mud, pets, and cigarette smoke.
If you want to maintain the value of your Chevrolet Blazer, it’s vital to keep its interior in the best shape possible. Therefore, you should consider investing in high-quality commercial grade auto interior detailing products to protect your carpets, trim, and seats.
Two areas of the interior that are particularly prone to attracting gunk and dirt are the consoles and the cup holders. And since these areas are so hard to reach, it’s nearly impossible to clean them.

These liners essentially act as floor mats for your console and cup holders, protecting them from spills, dirt and grime.
