There was a time when the Toyota 4Runner and Chevy Blazer were among the top names in the SUV class of the automotive industry. The Blazer was canceled and brought back by its automaker as crossover SUV, whereas the 4Runner has remained in production and also remains a true, rugged body-on-frame off-road-ready SUV platform. A comparison of the 2020 Toyota 4Runner vs. 2020 Chevy Blazer will help customers very clearly see the different capabilities these two vehicles bring to the marketplace. While all trim grades of the 2020 4Runner can offer a competent off-road capability, it still succeeds in making daily commuting activities as easy as possible. The new generation of the Chevy Blazer is definitely geared more for the latter of those capabilities. Customers can schedule an appointment today by calling 203-403-6890.
Customers who are looking for a vehicle to take them out into the woods for a weekend of camping will definitely want to choose the 2020 Toyota 4Runner over the 2020 Chevy Blazer. Four-wheel-drive can be equipped on every single trim of the 2020 4Runner which will be able to take the vehicle deeper into the wilderness than the available all-wheel-drive system that can be equipped on the 2020 Chevy Blazer. Another area of disparity between the two vehicles is interior space. The 2020 Blazer offers up two rows of seats as will the 2020 4Runner, with both vehicles having a passenger capacity of five. However, the Toyota SUV can also make a third-row of seats available that will push the seating room to seven passengers. The 4Runner also offers more maximum cargo volume than the 2020 Blazer.
Toyota continues to equip the 2020 Toyota 4Runner with the same powertrain that has placed it in such a strong position in its class. Owners of the Toyota 4Runner will have a 4.0-liter, V-6 engine attached to a five-speed automatic transmission. It will make 270 horsepower, 278 pound-feet and have a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds. Chevrolet has made two engine options available with the 2020 Blazer. The standard powertrain is a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine attached to a six-speed automatic transmission. This setup will produce 193 horsepower and 188 pound-feet of torque. Potential Blazer buyers can also choose to have a V-6 engine equipped that makes a little more horsepower, but it will not be able to tow as much as the 2020 4Runner.
