Chevy Equinox or Chevy Blazer: Which is Right for You?
The Chevy Equinox and the Chevy Blazer are both attractive and affordable SUVs that have plenty to offer for everyone from young professionals to growing families. Right now, the latest 2019 model is available for both SUVs, making it an exciting time to shop. Both have updated styling, have improved powertrain, and are loaded with advanced technology.
Take a look at how the 2019 Chevy Equinox and the 2019 Chevy Blazer compare to decide which is right for you:
Both SUVs offer plenty of room for passengers and cargo, but the Chevy Blazer is a bit bigger. Front and rear passengers have about the same amount of head space and leg room, but where you’ll really notice the difference is with cargo. The Equinox has 29.9 cubic feet of cargo space when the seats are in place, or 63.5 cubic feet when they aren’t. In contrast, the Blazer has 30.5 cubic feet of space with the seats in place, or 64.2 cubic feet when they aren’t.
Both are comparably sized on the exterior, as well. The Equinox is 183.1 inches long, 72.6 inches wide, and 65.5 inches tall. In contrast, the Blazer is 191.4 inches long, 76.7 inches wide, and 67 inches high. These aren’t likely to be differences you’ll notice when you are driving or trying to maneuver parking spaces or traffic.
As you’d expect from Chevy, numerous features are included with both SUVs. The 2019 Chevy Equinox comes with an infotainment system run through a 7-inch touchscreen, keyless entry, and a teen driver mode, among other features.
If you upgrade to the Blazer, you get a lot more. The rearview camera becomes HD, the touchscreen is an inch larger, keyless entry is paired with keyless start, an electronic locking glove box, and much more.
Both SUVs have a number of options packages that allow you to upgrade as you like. Yet you will enjoy the comfort and convenience that both offer in their base models.
The new Equinox has a 1.6-liter turbocharged Inline 4 engine that puts out 137 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque. You’ll have enough power under the hood to enjoy driving, but you won’t have to worry about a huge gas bill.
The new Blazer offers a bit more power. It comes with a 2.5-liter Inline 4 engine that puts out 193 horsepower. You also have the option to upgrade to a 3.6-liter V6 that puts out 305 horsepower. If you want more get-up-and-go, the Blazer has what you need.
