Chevy Blazer or Chevy Traverse: Which is Right for You?
oth the 2019 Chevy Blazer and the 2019 Chevy Traverse offer a roomy ride for plenty of passengers, powerful performance even for less-than-ideal conditions, and handsome styling that you’ll be proud to show off no matter where you drive. Yet they come at vastly different price points, and they each have their own unique benefits to offer. So how do you know which is right for you?
Here’s a closer look at how the Chevy Blazer and the Chevy Traverse compare to help you make the best decision:
The 2019 Chevy Traverse is bigger than the 2019 Blazer, but not so much that you’ll feel like you can’t handle it on the road. The Traverse is 204.3 inches long, while the Blazer is 191.4 inches. It is also 78.6 inches wide and 70.07 inches tall, compared with the Blazer’s width of 76.7 inches and height of 67 inches. You’re most likely to notice the difference in the length, such as when you’re trying to fit into a smaller parking space and can’t because the back end is sticking out.
You get more cargo space when the seats are installed with the Blazer, but you get much more cargo space when the seats are removed in the Traverse.
Meanwhile, the Blazer offers passenger space for five, while the Traverse can seat seven. Legroom is almost identical in both vehicles, so you won’t have to worry about those rear passengers feeling cramped.

Some standards include an 8-inch touchscreen, an HD rearview camera, keyless entry and start, an electronic locking glove box, heated sideview mirrors, and a teen driver mode. It has an optional 4G wi-fi hotspot and is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The 2019 Chevy Traverse comes standard with features like tri-zone automatic climate control, an interior humidity sensor, leather-wrapped steering wheel, a teen driver mode, and more. The focus on the interior in the Traverse is more about practicality that style, but you’ll enjoy a comfortable ride in an attractive cabin.
