Find out the fuel economy figures for the updated 2020 Chevrolet Blazer.
The new Chevrolet Blazer was introduced for the 2019 model year, but Chevrolet has wasted no time updating the mid-size crossover. For the 2020 model year, Chevrolet has added a new 2.0-liter turbo-four engine option that slots between the entry-level 2.5-liter unit and the range-topping 3.6-liter V6, along with a button to switch off the engine stop-start system.
New exterior color options are also available including Iridescent Pearl Tricoat, Bright Blue Metallic, and Midnight Blue Metallic as well as a black grille option and a decal pack to give the Blazer a sportier look.
Now, the EPA has released estimated fuel economy figures for the 2020 Chevrolet Blazer, including the new 2.0-liter turbo-four engine option. According to the EPA, the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder Blazer, which produces 230 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque and available for 2LT and 3LT trims, is rated at 21/28/24 mpg city/highway/combined for the FWD version, making it the most efficient model in the 2020 Chevrolet Blazer lineup.
The AWD version, on the other hand, returns an estimated 21/27/23 mpg city/highway/combined. How does this compare to other 2020 Chevrolet Blazer models?
The base L trim is powered by a naturally-aspirated 2.5-liter four-cylinder producing 193 hp and 188 lb-ft of torque and is only available with front-wheel-drive. The EPA rates this model at 21/27/23 mpg city/highway/combined. Topping the range are the RS and Premium trims that pack a more powerful 3.6-liter V6 producing 308 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque.
With front-wheel-drive, this unit returns 19/26/21 city/highway/combined according to the EPA, while the all-wheel drive version is rated at 18/25/21 mpg city/highway/combined. This makes it the least economic model in the range, which is hardly surprising.
Pricing for the 2020 Chevrolet Blazer starts at $29,995 for the base L trim, while the 2LT trim with the new turbo-four engine starts at $33,995.
