2020 Chevy Blazer Going Turbo With New Four-Cylinder Option

The 2020 GMC Acadia features a new turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and a report says the mill will also power the 2020 Chevrolet Blazer.

According to Car & Driver, the engine will come standard on 2LT and 3LT versions of the 2020 Blazer. It produces 230 hp (172 kW / 233 PS) and 258 lb-ft (350 Nm) of torque.

The new engine won’t replace the naturally aspirated 2.5-liter four-cylinder, which develops 193 hp (144 kW / 196 PS) and 188 lb-ft (255 Nm) of torque, as that mill will be the only option on the Blazer L and LT. However, the turbocharged 2.0-liter will be available with all-wheel drive. That’s notable as all-wheel drive wasn’t even offered as an option on models equipped with the naturally aspirated engine.


Buyers looking for something more powerful will be still able to get the 3.6-liter V6 which develops 308 hp (230 kW / 312 PS) and 270 lb-ft (366 Nm) of torque. However, they’ll have to pay for it as the publication says the V6 will only be available the range-topping RS and Premier variants. It’s a pricey proposition as 2019 Blazer RS starts at $41,795 while the Blazer Premier costs an additional $2,100.

The 2020 Chevrolet Blazer will arrive at dealerships in October and additional information will be announced closer to launch. While fuel economy figures remain unconfirmed for the new engine, GM has previously said the mill has tripower valvetrain technology and an active fuel management system which will deactivate two-cylinders at light engine loads to improve fuel efficiency. The engine will also be connected to a standard nine-speed automatic transmission.

      Smart, same here.
      I wonder if the GMC Arcadia, brother of the Blazer, is also made in Mexico.

    The Blazer, particularity the RS, has better ride, handling and driving characteristics than any other in its class. The RS was given a tighter steering ratio and heavier suspension components. With its AWD system and 3.6 it is a very good ride. Some of the Blazer critics are either unfamiliar with that, certainly haven’t driven it or just enjoy making stupid statements.
