EPA Ratings for 2020 Chevrolet Blazer Turbo Now Out

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Chevrolet just introduced the all-new Blazer in 2019, but the automaker is wasting no time in improving the mid-size crossover.

For the 2020 model year, Chevrolet is adding a new 2.0-liter turbo-four engine option that will sit between the 2.5-liter unit and the 3.6-liter V6 engine.

On top of the additional engine options, the crossover will be offered with more color choices, including Iridescent Pearl Tricoat, Bright Blue Metallic, and Midnight Blue Metallic, as well as a black grille option and a decal pack for a sportier look.

But what could be the main draw of the 2020 Blazer for customers is the estimated fuel economy figures, including those of the 2.0-liter turbo-four engine.

According to EPA, the 230-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder in front-wheel-drive setup is rated at 21/28/24 mpg city/highway/combined. This makes the crossover the most fuel-efficient model in the entire 2020 Blazer lineup.

The all-wheel-drive, meanwhile, has an estimated 21/27/23 mpg city/highway/combined. The same EPA ratings are given by the EPA to the entry-level L trim of the Blazer, which runs on a naturally-aspirated 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 193 horsepower and 188 lb-ft of torque but is only offered with front-wheel-drive.

The RS and Premium trim, on the other hand, top the range thanks to the more powerful 3.6-liter V6 that makes 308 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. However, the higher trim levels of the Blazer yield the least amount of fuel returns with EPA rating it at 19/26/27 city/highway/combined with FWD and 18/25/21 city/highway/combined with AWD.

The 2020 Chevrolet Blazer will be available for $29,995 for the base L trim, while the 2LT trim that carries the new turbo-four engine begins at $33,995.
