2021 Chevy Trailblazer vs. 2021 Chevy Blazer

Which vehicle from the Chevy SUV lineup is best suited to you and your Sarasota family? There are lots of well-equipped, spacious models available, but those looking for a sportier SUV will want to consider the new Trailblazer and the new Blazer. At first glance, the Trailblazer may appear to just be a smaller version of the Blazer, but there’s a lot more to think about in your final decision! Compare the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer vs. Blazer with Cox Chevrolet to make a well-informed choice.

Chevy Trailblazer vs. Blazer: Performance

The Chevy Trailblazer is an efficient compact SUV that’s perfect for zipping around Tampa, but if you’re looking for the option that packs a bigger punch in its performance output, you may be more impressed by the Blazer. Here’s a look at their base engines:
