    Trying to decide between the all-new 2019 Chevy Blazer vs 2019 Jeep Cherokee? It’s certainly a tough battle between these two fierce contenders. Both options are versatile, advanced, and offer an upscale interior. However, only one vehicle can be the right choice for you.

    The 2019 Chevy Blazer offers two engines, including a powerful V6 engine with class-leading horsepower and torque ratings. The Blazer is also incredibly capable with a maximum towing capacity of up to 4,500 LBS when properly equipped. On the inside, the Blazer is bold and advanced, offering a unique design and plenty of standard technology. Drivers of the Blazer can enjoy a standard 8-inch touchscreen display featuring both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Meanwhile, the Blazer is also exceptionally luxurious onboard its higher trim levels offering heated front seats, leather upholstery, and power-adjustable front seating.

    The 2019 Jeep Cherokee is another vehicle known for its versatile qualities and premium interior. However, the athletically marketed Cherokee falls short of what the Blazer has to offer in terms of power, despite offering three engines. The Cherokee also comes standard with a smaller touchscreen display and lacks a system geared towards teenage or secondary drivers. However, the Cherokee is the more fuel-efficient vehicle due to its low power output.

    Overall, both the 2019 Chevy Blazer and 2019 Jeep Cherokee are popular options for drivers looking for a new SUV. In order to help you determine which vehicle is the right choice for you, it’s important to take a closer look at what these two SUVs have to offer in terms of performance, interior features, and safety.

  • Performance

    Both the 2019 Chevy Blazer and 2019 Jeep Cherokee bring an athletic performance to the midsize SUV class. However, the all-new Blazer emerges as the more powerful contender. Drivers of the Blazer will also enjoy a more powerful standard engine than what is offered as standard on the Cherokee; however, this means the Cherokee’s standard engine is slightly more efficient.

    2019 Chevy Blazer

    The 2019 Chevy Blazer offers two engine options, including a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine as standard and an available 3.6L V6 engine. The standard engine produces up to 193 hp and 188 lb-ft torque with fuel economy ratings of up to 22 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. Meanwhile, the 3.6L V6 engine is capable of producing up to 308 hp and 270 lb-ft. Despite its substantial increase in power, the available V6 engine still offers high fuel economy ratings at up to 20 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway in FWD and up to 18 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway in AWD. Drivers can only opt for AWD with the 3.6L V6 engine, which offers more responsive handling and superior maneuverability. On the other hand, in its standard configuration, the Blazer still receives positive reviews for its handling and ride quality.

    When properly equipped, the 2019 Chevy Blazer is capable of towing up to 4,500 LBS with ease. Selectable drive modes are also available and include options like Sport, Tow, and Off-Road. The all-new Blazer features strong brakes and excellent suspension, and its 9-speed automatic transmission offers smooth downshifts and remains quiet at high speeds. Overall, the 2019 Chevy Blazer is powerful, capable, and efficient, making it an ideal option for daily drivers, adventurists, and families.

    2019 Jeep Cherokee

    The 2019 Jeep Cherokee offers three engine options, including a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine as standard offering up to 180 hp and 171 lb-ft torque. Compared to the Blazer’s standard engine, the Cherokee’s engine comes in with less horsepower and torque. However, this does allow for slightly improved fuel economy ratings at up to 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.

    A 3.2L V6 engine and a turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder engine are also available, but neither option can match the Blazer’s V6 engine in terms of power. At most, the Jeep Cherokee can produce up to 271 hp when equipped with its 3.2L V6 engine, but the turbocharged engine offers the most torque at up to 295 lb-ft.

    The Cherokee’s available options also come at quite a high price, forcing drivers to spend thousands more than the starting MSRP of the base model. Like the Blazer, the Cherokee is capable of towing up to 4,500 LBS. No matter which engine you choose, it will be paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission.

    While the performance of the 2019 Jeep Cherokee is competitive for the midsize SUV class, it simply can’t beat what the 2019 Chevy Blazer has to offer. Drivers looking for a versatile vehicle with affordable performance upgrades will want to opt for the 2019 Chevy Blazer.

  • Interior

On the base model of the Blazer, drivers will find an 8-inch touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

    Optional entertainment features are also available an include navigation, an 8-speaker Bose premium sound system, and the choice of up to six USB ports. Outside of entertainment technology, interior features on the Blazer include standard options like push-button start and dual-zone climate control, while available features include leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, and a power-adjustable driver’s seat. Drivers can also opt for a panoramic moonroof and tinted windows.

    2019 Jeep Cherokee

    Meanwhile, the 2019 Jeep Cherokee is also an upscale SUV, featuring high-quality materials and comfortable seating, but the Cherokee offers only a 7-inch touchscreen display as standard for use with the Uconnect 4 system. This infotainment system has been well-received by drivers and critics but has been criticized for going without Apple CarPlay and Android Auto in previous models.

    Other standard features include Bluetooth, three USB ports, and a black and white digital instrument display. Available features help to further enhance the interior of the new Cherokee, including a larger touchscreen display, leather seating, and power-adjustable driver and front passenger seats. When it comes to interior features, the Cherokee is one of the more upscale vehicles in its class, but the Blazer has the overall edge with a more generous list of features and a more original interior design.

  • Safety

    Drivers prioritizing safety in their next vehicle will appreciate what both the 2019 Chevy Blazer and 2019 Jeep Cherokee have to offer. Both SUVs offer a generous amount of standard and available safety technology, but the Blazer is a top choice for drivers with young parents with its standard Teen Driver technology.

    2019 Chevy Blazer

    The 2019 Chevy Blazer offers a rearview camera and Teen Driver technology as standard features on its base model. For drivers who are parents of young drivers, Teen Driver technology is a must-have feature. This advanced system allows parents to set their own volume and speed restrictions for their teenage driver, while also allowing them to view detailed reports about each trip driven. In recent years this technology has become so popular that Chevrolet has begun including it as a standard feature across nearly all of its new models.

    The Blazer also offers a rear-seat reminder, which alerts drivers and passengers prior to exiting the vehicle about any precious cargo that may be in the back seat. A long list of active safety features is also available on the Blazer, including lane keep assist, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, blind spot monitoring, and adaptive cruise control.

    2019 Jeep Cherokee

    The 2019 Jeep Cherokee comes standard with features like a rearview camera and rear cross path detection. Meanwhile, optional safety features include a long list of available driver assist technologies. However, the Cherokee lacks Teen Driver technology or a suitable replacement, making it difficult to monitor teenage or secondary drivers. Overall, the 2019 Jeep Cherokee offers a nice selection of safety features and is both safe and reliable, but the Blazer simply has more to offer.
