Comparing Chevrolet's Blazer & Traverse Mid-Size SUVs

Chevy offers a capable SUV for every driver and family, including these two versatile mid-size models. The latest Blazer SUV is a recent addition to the Chevrolet lineup. After a long hiatus, the Blazer name returns to the Chevy SUV family with a striking new design, robust performance and all-terrain capabilities.

The new Blazer fills the classic 5-passenger mid-size SUV slot in Chevrolet's line of capable vehicles. Its two-row seating configuration boasts a split-folding second row that provides up to 64.2 cubic feet of maximum cargo capacity. Standard cargo volume with all seats in the upright position measures at 30.5 cubic feet.

Comparing the 2020 Blazer and the Traverse models, one of the most noticeable differences is the seating capacity. The 2020 Traverse is a three-row SUV that offers seating for up to eight occupants, compared to the Blazer's five seats.

When it comes to cargo room, one thing to keep in mind is that the smaller Blazer boasts greater standard cargo space, while the three-row Traverse provides greater maximum cargo volume. Remember that when all five seats in the Blazer are utilized or upright, there are 30.5 cubic feet of space behind the back seats. The longer Traverse model fits three rows of seating, with 23 cubic feet left for cargo behind the last row. However, when you fold all of the seats behind the first row in both of these SUVs, the Traverse tops the Blazer, with an impressive 98.2 cubic feet of maximum cargo capacity!

These well-equipped mid-size SUVs are offered with much of the same technologies that Chevrolet is known for, including the high-powered Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System and game-changing built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi® Hotspot. Plus, you'll find advanced driver-assist and safety systems on board, including Automatic Emergency Braking and Adaptive Cruise Control.

The 2020 Blazer comes with a choice of three engines, the standard 193-hp 2.5-liter 4-cylinder, a 230-hp 2.0-liter turbo-four or a 308-hp 3.6-liter V6. Every 2020 Traverse three-row SUV comes fitted with a version of Chevy's 3.6-liter V6, which makes 310 hp in this application. Both models can be had with power sent to two wheels or all four, thanks to available AWD systems.

As you can see, there are plenty of differences as well as similarities between Chevy's mid-size SUVs. To determine which model is right for you and your family, head over to our Austin, TX, dealership near Round Rock and get behind the wheel of both of these SUVs for a full tour and test drive.
