The 2021 Chevrolet lineup is packed to the gills with high-quality vehicles designed for families just like yours in Portland, ME. Two of the most popular options are the Equinox and the Blazer. To help you decide which model is the right fit for your family, here are some of the most important differences between these stellar SUVs.
While neither the 2021 Equinox nor Blazer is quite as enormous as something like the Tahoe or Suburban, they’re not short on comfort. Both models offer comfortable seating for up to five, but the Blazer boasts more overall passenger volume thanks to its larger body. In terms of cargo volume, there’s virtually no difference between the two, as the Blazer offers up to 64.2 cubic feet and the Equinox provides 63.9.
This is one area where the dynamic duo show their unique personalities. The 2021 Blazer is a stone-cold stunner, with a low, athletic stance, an imposing grille, and a body defined by delicate curves and aggressive angles. On the other hand, the Equinox is more understated. Its body is smoother, its accents are a bit more subtle, and its presence is less intimidating overall. Both look great, just in different ways.
If you want something that packs a serious punch under the hood, the Blazer is your best bet. It offers three engine options, including a 3.6-liter V6 that belts out 308 horsepower. All of them outperform the Equinox’s single powertrain, a 1.5-liter turbo that tops out at 170 horsepower. The trade pays off big-time at the gas pump, as the Equinox can achieve up to 31 mpg on the highway.*
The good news is that there’s no way to go wrong when choosing between the 2021 Chevrolet Equinox and Blazer. To see which one is your perfect match, swing by Quirk Chevrolet of Portland for a few test drives.
