When your family wants a new SUV to keep up with your packed schedule, two prominent choices are the 2021 Chevy Equinox and Blazer. To make an informed decision about which vehicle is better suited for your day-to-day, check out the main differences between the SUVs.
The 2021 Equinox has the traditional look of an SUV, defined by its rounded curves and classic silhouette. The 2021 Blazer draws inspiration from the iconic Camaro sports car and has a more aggressive, dynamic appearance.
The Equinox offers one engine, a 1.5-liter turbo that generates 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque. It pairs with a six-speed automatic transmission and achieves an EPA-estimated 31 mpg on the highway.*
The Blazer, meanwhile, offers a 193-horsepower 2.5-liter engine, a 227-horsepower 2.0-liter Turbo, and a 308-horsepower 3.6-liter V6. They all pair with a nine-speed automatic transmission, but they offer a bit less fuel economy than the Equinox engine.
Exterior and interior space
As a midsize SUV, the Blazer has larger exterior dimensions than the small Equinox. Nevertheless, they both have seating for up to five and similar amounts of headroom and legroom. Cargo volume is also nearly identical with the Blazer having 64.2 cubic feet, while the Equinox has 63.9 cubic feet.
