Just a little over a year since General Motors revived the Chevrolet Blazer nameplate in the form of a new mid-size crossover, the automaker is already making a few changes in the vehicle. The changes are not big, but they are important.
For one, the new Blazer will get a 2.0-liter turbo-four right in between the naturally aspirated 2.5-liter unit and the 3.6-liter V6.
The company is also adding a new feature that will address common customer complaints involving the Blazer’s stop-start system.
The stop-start system is one of the model’s fuel-saving features, but it has received quite a number of downvotes from buyers. In an effort to solve the problem, GM is adding a defeat switch, allowing drivers to shut the system off as they wish.
On top of the new engine and the stop-start switch, new color choices for the exterior of the 2020 Chevrolet Blazer will be available, as well as a black grille and a decal pack.
Also boosting the performance of the crossover is the new Hitch Guidance feature that includes a Hitch View function on the vehicle’s infotainment display.
Moreover, Chevrolet is introducing a Redline Edition package, which includes 20-inch alloys and a gloss black exterior trim with red accents. Customers will also get the option to have their front headrests embroidered with the Blazer insignia.
Other than these updates, the 2020 Chevrolet Blazer will pretty much be the same. It will sit above the Chevy Trailblazer and in between the Chevy Equinox and Chevy Traverse. In 2019, GM sold 58,115 Blazer units in the United States.
