Since 2019, the Chevy Blazer has been taking the roads of Alabama by storm. This model has proven time and again to be a popular choice here at Guntersville Chevrolet. Both single drivers looking for a commuter vehicle and drivers who plan to ferry around their family have been thrilled with what the Blazer offers them. As a capable yet affordable crossover SUV, it is a smart investment for the modern driver. The Blazer can handle all sorts of terrain, and it’ll be able to do so while looking sporty. This crossover is designed to impress onlookers whether you’re driving through Birmingham or through one of the state’s gorgeous parks. It’s a crossover for all seasons and all customers.
The 2024 Chevy Blazer ranks as the best version of this SUV yet. We were very excited when it rolled onto our dealership lot because we knew our valued customers would now have a stellar new option when they visited. We want to walk you through the specifics of the 2024 Chevy Blazer so that you have a handle on all this model has to offer and why it’s become such a hot seller in the crowded crossover market. We’re positive you’ll be eager to buy one for yourself.
In keeping with its sporty look, the 2024 Chevy Blazer has a lot of power to it and can get you roaring down the highway, going from zero to 60 mph in under seven seconds; no more worrying about merging onto I-59. With its sleek, narrow headlights and distinctive front grille, the Blazer has a powerful look and an engine to match. Its impressive exterior sets a high standard for capability, and the Blazer’s performance exceeds that standard. You and your passengers will be more than impressed with the speed, acceleration, and responsive steering, the latter of which makes for a stress-free ride.
The 2024 Blazer has two engine options, both more than capable of getting the job done. No matter where you are in Alabama, the Blazer will have your back. The standard engine option is one that’s already pretty aggressive: a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 228 hp. By starting with this much horsepower, you’re promised great acceleration and a smooth, steady ride even at high speeds.
However, if you want some more power under the hood, you’ll be very happy with the Blazer’s upgraded engine option: a 3.6-liter V6 with 308 hp. With this engine, you’ll be able to take off fast from a standstill and have the most reliable ride on the road. No one wants to be in a vehicle that seems to be struggling to stay at pace with everyone else on the road; even with the Blazer’s standard engine, you’re likely to be the one setting the pace, not trying to keep up.
Both engines give the Blazer solid towing capability. The 2.0-liter engine provides a limit of 3,250 lbs, while the 3.6-liter engine will grant you a limit of 4,500 lbs. You’ll be able to bring along extra gear if you’re on a long trip, thanks to being able to hitch a trailer to your Blazer. Your vacation destinations will expand now that you know you can tow what you want. Alabama has some lovely camping destinations; now, you can enjoy them while still bringing along the comforts of home.
The Blazer offers a variety of different drive modes. All-wheel drive models, for instance, feature five modes: Tour, All-Wheel Drive, Sport, Off-Road, and Tow/Haul. This means you can have your crossover in the best mode for your current situation, improving both safety and efficiency. The former will keep you enjoying your trips, while the latter will please your wallet.
A key element of an SUV, no matter its size, is its ability to handle a lot of cargo and passengers. Since the Blazer’s exterior has that sporty, classy look, it might be easy to assume that some interior space had to be sacrificed to make that look a reality. Luckily, that assumption would be dead wrong.
Let’s talk about cargo space first. The 2024 Blazer comes with 64.2 cu.ft. of cargo space when its rear seats are down. This will give the average driver more than enough room even when they have a lot to transport. You’ll be very happy with the design of the cargo area, too; it’s crafted so that you can take advantage of every square inch and get the most out of your purchase.
The back row of seats avoids a problem that too many crossovers have: too little space for passengers to feel welcomed. With the Blazer, your passengers will have all the room they need to stretch out. Standard dual-zone climate control will also let you and your front-seat passenger enjoy different temperatures; this is great when you’re with someone who has other ideas of comfort.
In terms of looks, it’s hard to imagine a more stylish interior. The crossover’s mix of jet black and medium gray coloring, along with the touchscreen prominently placed in the center, has your Blazer’s cockpit looking futuristic and sure to impress.
There are many small, neat elements to the interior, too. For instance, the electronic locking glove box is great if you’re worried about someone trying to steal valuables. When activated, you can only unlock the glove box by entering a code on the touchscreen. Another neat detail? On certain trims, you can opt for ventilated front seats. Alabama drivers love these as they keep seat cushions and seatbacks cool during those brutally hot summer days.
Your Blazer is going to be quite the intelligent vehicle. As technology rapidly develops, Chevy makes certain that its cars stay up to date with the latest programs and gadgets. You’ll be shocked at what your vehicle can do, ranging from infotainment to safety. Some of the tech comes into play before you even step into your SUV. Remote start comes standard on the 2024 Blazer, and it will let you get your vehicle going before you walk outside your house. As soon as you take your seat, you can start charging your phone; there’s even optional wireless charging.
The fun really kicks into gear with the 10.2-inch diagonal HD color touchscreen. From this, you can access all your favorite apps thanks to the standard wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. From playlists to podcasts to navigation, your touchscreen’s connection to your phone will make sure you always have access to the apps you want. You can opt for a Wi-Fi hotspot, too, in case you don’t want to use roaming data when you’re in your Blazer; this helps prevent your phone bill from suddenly skyrocketing.
However, enjoyable as all that is, the place where technology is most important is safety. The Chevy Safety Assist suite comes with six advanced driver-assist tools that will keep you and your passengers secure on the road and when parking. Front Pedestrian Braking alerts you if someone walks in front of your vehicle and can even initiate the braking for you. Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning will give you a gentle reminder if you are veering out of your lane; if you fully activate the feature, it can gently steer you back into your lane, too. You can probably guess from the names alone what Forward Collision Alert and Automatic Braking do. These tools immediately display a message if they sense a collision is imminent and can start braking, giving you an extra second or two of braking time as your foot goes from the gas pedal to the brake pedal.
