2021 Chevrolet Lineup | Garland, TX

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.

Eye-catching designs

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.

Powertrain lineups

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.

How To Clean Your Recently Purchased Used Chevy

How To Clean Your Vehicle | Garland, TX

After buying your ideal used Chevy vehicle from Jupiter Chevrolet or another dealership, you’ll want to be sure to give it a good cleaning before taking it out for its first drive. Try out these tips to get your pre-owned car clean and ready for you and your family.

Power wash the exterior

Giving your car a thorough power wash is one of the best ways to make your newly purchased car look fresh and ready to roll. Make sure to spray under the wheel wells, between the wheels, the underbody, and anywhere else you can reach. Make sure to use soap and water and then dry it with a clean cloth.

Buff and wax

Buff the exterior of your car using a car polisher and buffer pad to remove any light scratches you’ve noticed. Afterward, apply wax to protect the paint and make your vehicle shine like brand new.

Remove the covers

Take out the seat covers, floor mats, and any other covers that might still be in your car from the previous owner. Then, vacuum out the interior and give it a shampoo treatment as needed. If you feel the covers are still in good condition and would like to keep them, simply wash them and put them back inside.
