The Chevy Blazer offers practical features that are perfect for everyday driving. It’s a versatile vehicle beloved by families and new drivers alike, as it’s easy for them to take on steep responsibilities, and experienced drivers appreciate its sporty design and performance. So, without any further adieu, let’s take a closer look at the 2024 Chevy Blazer.
Affordable Yet Powerful
With a starting MSRP of $35,400, this SUV is breaking the mold for your travels. With a sharp-looking exterior and luxurious interior design, there will be nothing to change your mind about owning this super convenient ride. It has four trim options—the 2LT, 3LT, RS, and Premier—which are passionate and adventure-ready, but let’s dive into what makes them unique from each other…
Of course, the higher you go on this list, the more and better features and furnishings you get, but this doesn’t mean the lesser trims are any less valuable. Starting with the base 2LT trim, we have the standard 2.0L Turbo I-4 engine for strong fuel economy and power. You’ll get 22 MPG in the city and 29 MPG on the highway in front-wheel drive; if you opt for all-wheel drive, only the latter figure shrinks—and only slightly—to 27 MPG on the highway. This turbocharged engine will get you a boosted 228 hp and a respectable 258 lb-ft of torque.
The next trim—the 3LT—starts with an MSRP of $39,300 and makes available this model’s alternative engine, the 3.6L V6. You’ll get even better performance, at 308 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque, with a trade-off for decreased fuel economy: you’d get 19 MPG in the city and 26 MPG on the highway in front-wheel drive, while all-wheel drive models will drop that former figure by one to 18 MPG in the city. That still leaves a rather exceptional fuel economy rating for AWD highway driving!
Both engines are mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission, which affords smooth gear shifting. The 3.6L V6 engine becomes standard on the RS trim, and the 3LT’s 4.2-inch color driver information center is then upgraded to an 8.0-inch screen. So, while the 2LT and 3LT are closer to one another than they are to the RS and Premier, they are value-packed practical choices for those looking for solid and dependable performance.
The RS and Premier offer slight alterations that make a big difference in performance and furnishings. For example, the RS and Premier have some cool interior features that are not available on the base model; in fact, they come with the eight-speaker Bose premium audio system, front USB ports, an audio input jack, an SD card reader, and Chevrolet Infotainment 3 (with Navigation) on a 10.2-inch touchscreen display. Regarding performance, the RS trim is best for more horsepower and torque, while the Premier is tailored more toward lavish accommodations. Both of these trims come out with the same MSRP of $42,800.
Setting the Example for Safety
The safety and driver assistance features in this car are nothing to snooze on. Chevy’s surplus of standard and advanced tools for keeping you protected on the road has led to a surplus of happy drivers.
Having so many standard features—like Lane Keep Assist and Automatic Emergency Braking—helps make this such a stunning model, but you also receive innovative tech like Teen Driver mode (which will allow you to moderate, monitor, and review your new driver’s driving habits) and an HD rear vision camera to inform you of rearward obstacles and help you navigate better while in reverse; there will no longer be a need to triple-check that nobody is backing up at the same time in a parking lot (because they obviously did not see you) or wondering where little Timmy and his dog came from all of a sudden.
We can’t forget to mention other fantastic features like IntelliBeam High Beam Assist, which automatically dims or illuminates depending on visibility levels and if there’s oncoming traffic, and the Following Distance Indicator, which will let you know if you’re too close to the vehicle ahead of you for a safe reaction time. Other standard driver assistance features include Forward Collision Alert, Front Pedestrian Braking, and Lane Departure Warning.
Configured With a Purpose
As with any SUV, rest assured that you’ll have ample storage space for all your belongings. The Blazer has an outstanding 64.2 cu.ft. of space for cargo, which is similar to the size of some full-size truck beds—and with 40/60-split rear folding seats, you can expand your cargo hold further. If you are limited to a smaller parking area, you already know the importance of making the most out of the space you have and how to organize efficiently; this makes the Blazer’s minimum 30.5 cu.ft. of cargo space an excellent outlook and can be just as spacious as the larger.
Plus, if you are looking to go on vacation or a family outing, the Blazer can tow up to 4,500 lbs; that’s enough to take along a small camper, a trailer for jet skis or ATVs, a boat, or even another car. The 2024 Blazer boasts a generous amount of trailering for such an athletic build—proof that it was built for your needs beyond the daily routine.
More Meaningful Convenience
What is more convenient than technology? With the Blazer, you’ll find its tech goes beyond base conveniences and downright lends you a hand—as is the case with its power-programmable liftgate. Imagine the kid’s science projects in one hand, your bag in another, and your coffee hanging on by your pinkie finger, and then instead of rudely sitting there, the trunk automatically lifts… and you can breathe a little easier.
There are so many other features to love, like remote start (which you can find on the myChevrolet mobile app), to let the car warm up or cool down before you step outside, and adaptive cruise control, which self-regulates your speed on the highway per the rate of travel of the car ahead of you. If you take a closer look on the inside, you will also find a wireless charging pad, so you don’t have to hassle with tangled wires. You also can get a Wi-Fi hotspot, in-vehicle apps, and Tap-and-Go technology, which—with voice commands—gives you a bit more control over your day.
Chevy’s 2024 Blazer
This is a car worth exploring, coming from the reputable bowtie brand—one of the originators of the SUV segment and one of its most consistent innovators. With four different trims to choose from, you can make this car anything you need it to be. There is very little competition for the Blazer, which keeps a superior appearance and is laden with more tech per inch than most other models outside of luxury cruisers. Plus, you’ll get capabilities similar to those of a truck and handling more like that of a sedan, all combined into a sporty-looking midsize SUV.
So, if you are looking for a family hauler that packs in more than the average model and can be used for all sorts of activities, then look no further. The 2024 Blazer is practical and versatile and will keep you comfortable and confident on the road regardless of where you’re going.
