In the overcrowded market of crossover SUVs, there are only a few models that can stop your eyes on them. The 2020 Chevrolet Blazer is surely one among them. When we got the first opportunity to see the new edition of this model at the showroom of Greenacres Chevrolet dealer, we couldn’t resist our urge to test drive the models that looked so deadly smart and yet determined.
Defying the norms of its segment, the 2020 Chevrolet Blazer wears a beautifully slick design at its exterior that appears to be more street-oriented than a wild off-road chaser. It is a crossover that is bristling with cool design touches of urban smartness. It comes in two-rows, and hence falls in the category of mid-size crossovers but surprisingly it offers more space than many of its closest rivals.
The 2020 Chevrolet Blazer can be easily called to be a model that sides more with the stylish end of its own segment that is otherwise known for its ruggedness. But for Blaze it worked in favor of its sales record that could add more digits because of its distinguished approach towards styling. People liked it more because of its distinctive appearance that has left the sides of boredom which other crossovers are cursed with. From every angle we found the 2020 Chevrolet Blazer worthy of a second look.
Lineup Range for the2020 Year
For the year 2020 Chevrolet queues up the Blazer in L, LT, 2LT, 3LT, RS, and Premier trim levels. Among them the two lower trims L and LT move with the power of a 2.5-liter engine, configured as front-wheel-drive only while the higher trims 2LT and 3LT get a new turbo four enginewith the option to be driven with all-four-wheels. If you choose the range topping trims RS and Premier, you get a V6 engine under the hood with all-wheel drive as a standard setting.
Drive and Ride Comforts
Choose any 2020 Blazer, and you will be guaranteed with a steady and composed ride all through the way. The one who sits behind its wheels can’t but appreciate its accurate steering. For us, the 2020 Blazer models can be easily called upon as one of the best-driving crossovers released ever in the market thatwears the Chevrolet bow tie on their front grills.
As we drove through the twisting roads, the steering made us feel confident with its almost intuitive responses. The models with 18-inch wheels were naturally able to deliver a smoother and still quieter ride than the large 21-inchers, as the latter was meant to be driven over extremely bumpy roads.
All the models of the 2020 Chevrolet blaze that we explored remained equally serene and hushed up on all the surfaces while being driven at highway speeds. The brake pedal feltfirm below our feet and was responding to our inputs immediately making the vehicle coming to a stop from as high as 70 mph speed in an impressive distance of 165 feet.
Our overall impression on the 2020 Chevrolet Blazer at the showroom of the Greenacres Chevrolet dealership say that it is a recommendable choice both as everyday crossovers while its range topping models can impress even the sports car drivers. `
