The 2024 Chevy Blazer: The SUV for All Ohio Drivers

Driving in Ohio means driving in three types of landscape—urban, suburban, and rural—but that’s only part of the story because you also have to account for the rain we get, especially in the summer and autumn. As an Ohio driver, you’ll want a trustworthy vehicle—a vehicle that doesn’t mind diverse topography and has a safety suite you know will be a good co-pilot; you want a nimble, responsive vehicle so you feel in complete control, no matter the locale or climate.

What you want is a 2024 Chevy Blazer, and we have the Chevy Blazer for sale here at McCluskey Chevrolet because we know that drivers in the Cincinnati area will find a lot of success with this midsize SUV. It’s in the “Goldilocks Zone” in terms of size—not too big, nor too small. It’s a great family vehicle thanks to its spacious seating and safety tech. If you buy or lease a Blazer, you’re assuring yourself of success on the streets and freeways of Ohio.

What Makes the Blazer Right for Ohio Roads?

Cincinnati is close by, and Columbus and Indianapolis aren’t all too far away either; those are three nearby cities with tight, urban streets. If you’re someone with kids and you want to show them some sights and sounds, you’re likely taking a day trip to these nearby metropolises. So, you’re looking for a responsive SUV, right? You won’t want a sense that your vehicle is lagging or not turning at the precise angle you want; heading into the city should be a joy, not a stress.

The Blazer is the perfect SUV for this. Its size means you have abundant cargo space (at 64.2 cu.ft. with the rear row down), but it’s not as bulky as other vehicles in its class, which means a quick, tight turn down a one-way street in Cincinnati won’t be trouble.

On the flip side, if you’re on a wet or muddy rural road, your Blazer can serve you well, too. Its responsive touch is once more a blessing, but if you see yourself as someone who’ll be traversing Ohio’s rougher roads, then you should opt for the Blazer’s all-wheel drive (AWD), which will give you an advantage. This drivetrain’s better traction means that a slippery road is less likely to result in an accident.

Of course, you want to try to avoid traveling in foul weather to begin with, but we know surprises happen, and the climate in Ohio can change in the blink of an eye. So, what is it about the Blazer’s AWD that makes it so successful in bad weather? Since all four wheels are working, there’s less of a loss of control if one wheel slips or skids, thus lowering the risk of hydroplaning. While there is nothing better than an experienced and aware driver, AWD helps a heck of a lot if you find yourself in less-than-ideal road conditions.

Your Blazer can also come with multiple drive modes, too, so its engine and steering can adapt to changing terrain. Front-wheel drive (FWD) models come with Tour, Snow/Ice, Sport, and available Tow/Haul modes, while AWD models come with Tour, All-Wheel Drive, Off-Road, and Tow/Haul modes. The two engines the Blazer offers help with this effective command and control; the first is the standard 2.0L turbocharged engine, while the other is the available V6 engine that produces 308 hp. More horsepower allows for more speed, yes, but it also improves the control you’re looking for on our roads.

What Makes the Blazer Right for Ohio Families?

The Blazer’s spacious seating means getting around our state won’t be a hassle. Heck, in some circumstances, your passengers might not even want to get out when you reach your destination. We know that SUVs are often attractive purchases for families, so the Blazer makes certain to offer the comfort you want your loved ones to be able to enjoy.

This isn’t one of those SUVs where the back row of seats is too tight for adults; your tallest friend will be just fine. Your kids will be happy instead of feeling cramped and repeatedly asking the dreaded “Are we there yet?” Plus, with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, you’ll be able to keep everyone occupied with some great tunes that will sound crystal clear from the sound system.

The Wi-Fi hotspot will also come in handy if you’re traveling with kids. They’ll be able to stay entertained with their devices without having to use endless data. It also means that, when you connect your device to the touchscreen for navigation or other apps, you’ll be saving data—and if anyone’s device runs out of power, you’ll be happy to know your Blazer has an available wireless charging pad.

Why Do Cautious Drivers Love the Blazer?

The Blazer is great if you’re someone who wants a feeling of security when you’re zipping around Ohio. This is thanks to Chevy Safety Assist, which has a whole suite of intelligent programs that will act as your co-pilot when you’re on the road. This program makes sure to use the Blazer’s sensors to detect possible collisions or if you’re veering outside of your lane. It makes sure you stay focused on the road even if you’ve been driving for a long time.

Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning is an ideal example. It can gently steer you back into your lane as it also warns you about your trajectory. This is, of course, important on a highway as you don’t want to tap another vehicle on the road, but it’s also important to stay in your lane when you’re driving on a single lane as the sides of the road often have dirt or mud that could result in your vehicle sliding.

When you’re in a city like Cincinnati (where pedestrians may suddenly dart across the street), your Blazer’s Front Pedestrian Braking will offer you an extra set of eyes in order to avoid any catastrophes. It’ll alert you if it senses someone lurching and it’ll start the braking process.

Obviously, the Chevy Safety Assist suite will be useful for any driver, but for those who find themselves more apprehensive than usual on the road, this will be a real help and make driving around our great state more enjoyable instead. With the intelligence of your Blazer, you’re going to be able to travel with more peace of mind.

What Makes the Blazer Specifically Great for Teen Drivers?

If you’re someone who has a teenager who is either just now learning to drive or will soon be learning to drive, then you’re going to love the Teen Driver tech that comes standard on your Blazer. Why? Because it gives you control over the Blazer even when you’re not currently in it. You can limit the sound level and the top speed and receive report cards on how well your driver performed. If any of the Chevy’s safety systems had to kick in while your teenager was driving, it will let you know.

Ohio has a lot of long, winding highways that are sometimes quite quiet. Your young driver might feel the urge to get the speed cranking, but; you’ll be able to prevent that by putting a cap on speed, and you’ll know if they were driving irresponsibly.
