The Chevy family of SUVs includes many favorite vehicles for Hartselle drivers. The 2020 Chevy Equinox continues to have a strong following, but how does it compare to the new 2021 Chevy Blazer? Both SUVs have the power to Chevrolet engineering under the hood, and they both fall into the class of compact SUVs.Take a closer look at what differentiates the Equinox vs. Blazer with Mitch Smith Chevrolet, Inc..

Equinox vs. Blazer — Price and Power

The 2021 Chevy Blazer costs a bit more than the 2020 Chevy Equinox, which is understandable since the Blazer has moved into the next model year. Here’s how the MSRPs stack up for the base and top trim levels in Equinox vs. Blazer:

  • 2020 Chevy Equinox L: $23,800 MSRP
  • 2020 Chevy Equinox Premier: $31,400 MSRP
  • 2021 Chevy Blazer L: $28,800 MSRP
  • 2021 Chevy Blazer Premier: $43,000 MSRP

Equinox vs. Blazer — Performance

Even though the 2021 Chevy Blazer is slightly more expensive, the cost is proportionate to the higher engine power Hanceville drivers will enjoy when they choose the Blazer.

  • The base engine in the Chevy Blazer is a hefty 2.5L, while the Chevy Equinox is powered by a 1.5L engine. We’ll see the difference that makes when we look at towing capacity.
  • One perk of the smaller engine in the Equinox is that it gets better fuel economy than the Blazer: 26 mpg city compared to 19 mpg city for the Blazer. If you don’t need higher towing capacity and you’re mainly using your SUV for commutes, the Chevy Equinox is a more economical choice for you.

Equinox vs. Blazer — Towing and Cargo Capacity

What the Chevy Blazer engine size provides is a higher towing capacity. While both Equinox vs. Blazer have the towing capacity to handle a small RV, fishing boat, or trailer, the Blazer has 1,000 pounds more towing capacity at 4,500 pounds (vs. 3,500 pounds on the Equinox). The Equinox vs. Blazer cargo capacity is almost the same, averaging 64 cubic feet. Both SUVs have two rows and seating for five passengers.
