If you are seeking for midsize-crossover SUV that provides great styling and good gadgetry, the new 2021 Chevy Blazer is the right choice. The all-new model is looking to compete with rides like the Ford Edge, Honda Passport, and Nissan Murano.
According to Chevy, the new model will be available later this year and it will be offered in few trim levels. Each of trims will come with a very rich amount of standard equipment. Besides the regular model, the manufacturer will also introduce a sporty RS version to compete with the Ford Edge ST.
2021 Chevy Blazer Design
The forthcoming 2021 Chevy Blazer model will get a couple of refreshments. This new model is available only with four doors, while older versions had two. Its nose looks attractive and the Blazer features thin, sharply “headlights” and LED running lights. Like before, headlights sit midway down the fascia.
A few trim levels will be available. Moving up to the Premier trim the buyers will get more chrome accents and stylish 20-inch wheels. However, going for Blazer RS, you’ll get a more sporty appearance. This trim comes exclusively with sporty 20-inch wheels, dark exterior accents, and chrome exhaust outlets.
The cabin of the new 2021 Chevy Blazer is housing plenty of upscale materials and techs. This five-seater SUV is also offering a very spacious interior that hosts five occupants. Moreover, seats provide maximum comfort on a long ride. Also, as we mentioned, techs are tremendous and Blazer comes with the infotainment system of 8-inch that underlines the new modernity. Interestingly, you’ll find plenty of Camaro cues inside like centre vents allow temperature adjustment and sporty wheel.
Comfort is excellent and rear-seat passengers will enjoy ample space. Unlike the Ford Edge, which provides great cargo space, the new model behind rear seats offers 30.5 cubic feet, which is enough for most needs.
