The Chevrolet Blazer hasn’t even been on the market very long, but Chevy is already adding an engine option. Buyers of the 2020 Blazer will now be able to opt for a turbocharged engine.
According to GM’s 2020 order guide, the 2020 Blazer will be offered with GM’s familiar turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four. The engine is being or has already been added to most of the Blazer’s platform mates, so it comes as little surprise it’s finding its way under the Blazer’s hood as well.
Chevrolet says the 2020 Blazer 2.0-liter will generate 230 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. That torque will flow through a nine-speed automatic transmission. As with all other instances of this engine in GM products, it will be equipped with a start/stop system.
The addition of the 2.0-liter brings the total Blazer engine count to three. The 2.5-liter four-cylinder remains the base engine on the Blazer L and 1LT trim levels, while the new 2.0-liter will be standard on the 2LT and 3LT trim levels. Buyers of the top-end RS and Premier models will continue to see the 308 horsepower 3.6-liter V-6. It is worth mentioning 2LT and 3LT buyers will still be able to opt for the V-6 as an option.
Aside from the new engine, changes to the 2020 Blazer remain minimal. Chevy has added a hitch guidance system to the option list and modified some of the packaging.
Expect to hear pricing and fuel economy details of the 2020 Blazer 2.0-liter once the 2020 model begins arriving in dealerships in the coming months.
