The Chevy Blazer of the 2020 model year has got a new turbocharged engine.
The new mill with inline configuration has 4 cylinders and a displacement of 2.0 liters. It produces 230 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque.
This unit will sit between a base naturally aspirated 2.5-liter 193-hp inline-four and an optional 3.6-liter 6-cylinder 308-hp V engine.
The 2020 Chevrolet Blazer vehicles with the new engine begin arriving in U.S. dealerships this month.
The new motor comes with the mid-range 2LT and 3LT models, both front- and all-wheel-drive. Its fuel comsumption, not still claimed, will be somewhere between the 2.5L Blazer’s 24 mpg and the 3.6L Blazer’s 22-21 mpg, combined cycle.
The entry-level Blazer L and LT still offer the single 2.5-liter inline-4 engine. The high-end Blazer RS and Premier trims come only with the 3.6-liter V6.
A 9-speed automatic transmission and a Stop-Start function are available with all the engines.
The 2LT cars use the new powertrain as standard. The price starts at $33,995.
The 3LT with the same engine costs $38,195. The 3.6-liter V6 is optional for this trim and costs $500 extra.
The all-wheel-drive choice will cost to customers additional $2,000.
