As a five-passenger midsize crossover, the Chevrolet Blazer occupies the space between the wildly popular compact SUVs and the three-row midsize SUVs favored by families. It takes its name from truck-based sport-utilities from the 1970s and 1980s and the modern Blazer has roots in the 21st century. Its engines balance performance and efficiency. Consumers have a choice between front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. Off-roading is not on the menu, as ride and handling capability on pavement takes priority. This is also true of many of the Blazer’s rivals — but the Chevy travels in high style by borrowing design elements from the Camaro and bringing a welcome dose of personality to the segment.
