Performance and Drivetrain

The 2020 Chevy Blazer RS has exceptional performance, making it one of the most fun to drive SUVs in its class. It features a standard 3.6-liter V6 engine that is both strong and efficient. It can produce up to 308 horsepower at and 270 lb-ft of torque, making it capable of towing up to 4,500 pounds. This engine is paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission, giving you maximum control over your Blazer RS.

The front-wheel driver Blazer RS can provide an estimated 19 MPG in the city and up to 26 MPG on the highway. This excellent fuel efficiency is achieved in part by the use of variable valve timing, spark ignition direct injection, and the stop/start technology. This allows the engine to automatically stop when the brake pedal is pressed at a red light and then restart as soon as you release the brake. Not only will this reduce fuel consumption, but it will also reduce your Blazer’s emissions.

The 20-inch dark android machined-face aluminum wheels of the Blazer RS are paired with all-season tires, providing you with a strong and smooth ride. The Blazer has a 112.7-inch wheelbase, giving you handling and cornering you need to get you out of any tight spot. The 2020 Blazer RS is also available with advanced twin-clutch all-wheel drive for an additional $3,000. A small price to pay if you live in a temperate area susceptible to snow, sleet, and ice.

Luxurious and Roomy Interior

One of the first things you will notice about the Blazer RS is its interior. Black perforated leather-appointed seating surfaces with red accents dominate and will immediately catch your attention. This is complemented by a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The front seats are also heated, giving you and the other front-row passengers extra comfort on cold winter mornings.

Once you step back from the door, you will see just how roomy the Blazer RS is. There is fully 107.8 cu.ft. of passenger volume in the Blazer’s interior, so you and your passengers will never feel cramped. Front row passengers will enjoy 39.8 inches of headroom, 41 inches of legroom, 59.1 inches of shoulder room, and 55.6 inches of hip room, while rear-seat passengers will have plenty space with 38.6 inches of headroom, 39.6 inches of legroom, 58.6 inches of shoulder room, and 54.2 inches of hip room.

This spaciousness carries over to the trunk, which provides up to 30.5 cubic feet of cargo space. If you need more, the rear seats can easily fold down to provide an amazing 64.2 cubic feet of cargo space, plenty of room for anything you need to get around.

Once you step outside your 2020 Blazer RS, you will see how the designers at Chevrolet carried the interior design touches out to the exterior of the vehicle. There is a custom black mesh grille with a black Chevy bowtie emblem that is only available on the Blazer RS. This theme continues throughout the vehicle, with numerous black exterior appearances. This gives the Blazer RS a unique sporty appearance unlike any of the other Blazer trims.

One of the fun features of the Blazer RS is the hands-free gesture liftgate on the trunk. You have probably seen those advertisements where the people appear to be kicking under the liftgate, and then it automatically opens? Well, this is the feature you have seen. You can open or close the liftgate by having the key fob on your person and then placing your foot under the rear bumper. It is as simple as that. This is especially helpful if you have your hands full and need access to the trunk. In addition to the foot motion, you can also open the trunk by using the button on the key fob, pressing the liftgate button inside the Blazer RS, or pressing the touchpad on the exterior liftgate handle. Whichever way you choose to do it, you will be hard pressed to find an easier and more convenient way of opening the liftgate.
