2020 Chevrolet Blazer Performance Review

Scorecard

Performance: 7.3

The 2020 Chevrolet Blazer's agile handling and solid engine options contribute to its fairly sporty performance. However, the transmission can hesitate to downshift at times.

  • "The Blazer RS we tested hustled from zero to 60 mph in 6.3 seconds and bridged the gap between 50 and 70 mph in 4.6 seconds, which is speedy for this class. Quick as that may be, the automatic transmission was slow to downshift." -- Car and Driver
  • "A Camaro-inspired center stack livens up the interior design, but – surprise, surprise – the Blazer doesn't drive like a sports car. Even so, the 3,800-to-4,300-pound crossover moves confidently, whether you're in a four-cylinder front-driver or a loaded RS AWD V-6." -- Motor Trend (2019)
  • "Out on the road, the Blazer feels solid and nimble. Its reactions aren't quite as immediate as those of Mazda's SUVs, for example, but it bends into curves with surprising sharpness and does a good job damping the usual pitch and roll of a car with a high center of gravity. The steering feels firm but slightly artificial; there's not a lot of road feel or a clear sense of what the tires are doing. Even so, the Blazer still tracks straight and true at highway speeds." -- Edmunds (2019)

Acceleration and Power

Models with the base 193-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine get the best fuel economy in the lineup. They deliver 21 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. Models with this engine have solid power for your daily travels, but the two upgraded variants help this SUV get up to speed quicker.

There's a new-for-2020 turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 230 horsepower. This is a great choice for those who prioritize both power and efficiency. Models with this engine deliver nearly identical fuel economy estimates as the base power plant. The top-of-the-line 308-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 is potent and also earns comparable fuel economy to the other two engines.

All engines come with a nine-speed automatic transmission that generally works well but can struggle to downshift at times.

  • "The turbocharged 2.0-liter engine is a welcome addition, providing more muscle than the base unit. The base engine has a tendency to surge when applying light throttle, making it finicky to drive smoothly at parking-lot speeds. The 9-speed automatic transmission is a fine complement to any of the Blazer’s power sources, optimizing acceleration and fuel economy." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "Strong acceleration and a crisp handling character are two of the Blazer's hallmarks. The V6-powered Blazer makes the 0-60 mph run in 6.6 seconds, which is good for this type of vehicle – and quicker than the Honda Passport and the turbocharged 2.0-liter-equipped Ford Edge." -- Edmunds
  • "The 193-hp 2.5-liter naturally aspirated I-4 actually feels plenty powerful in town. It's only when you enter a freeway onramp or attempt a pass that you'll miss the pricier V-6. A responsive nine-speed automatic is standard and, except for a rev-hang issue experienced on a four-cylinder tester, the transmission works well with both engines." -- Motor Trend (2019)

Handling and Braking

The Blazer is a fairly sporty vehicle in the midsize SUV class. It has agile handling and good composure around corners, and it manages to smooth out most bumps in the road. Some drivers may find the ride too harsh in models with larger wheels, particularly the RS trim.

Front-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is available in select trims. Also, there are three standard drive modes that can be tuned for Tour, Sport, and Snow/Ice. Two other modes are available in all-wheel-drive models: Tow/Haul and Off-Road.

  • "There’s a pleasant balancing act of absorbing bumps while keeping body roll in check and bringing some life to the steering. Selectable driving modes include Sport, Tow and Off-road (probably the one that will be used the least). They change the responses of the steering, throttle and transmission." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "For the most part, the Blazer delivers the on-road comfort you expect from a modern crossover. The ride is stable and controlled without being overly harsh." -- Edmunds
  • "Opting for the available 21-inch wheels as fitted on our primary test car takes things even further in terms of both body roll and grip. However, having such big wheels and a suspension tuned for road holding does result in a compromised ride. Even the Blazer on 18s had a firmer ride than we've come to expect from GM's crossovers, but damping is quite good, and it's perfectly acceptable for a vehicle with sporting intentions. On the other hand, the 21-inch-equipped RS grew tiresome when driving between 25 and 50 mph on anything but perfect pavement. We couldn't see the bumps, but we could sure feel them." -- Autoblog (2018)
