If you’re looking to purchase a new Chevrolet SUV this year, it’s likely you’re considering either the Equinox or the Blazer. While each of these models is a solid, family-friendly option, the right fit for you really depends on what you’re looking for. Here’s a look at the major 2019 Chevrolet Equinox and 2019 Chevrolet Blazer differences.
As you might expect because of its larger size, the Blazer provides more room for passengers and cargo. It can haul a maximum of 64.2 cubic feet of cargo and offers 108 cubic feet of passenger volume. The Equinox, on the other hand, offers 63.9 cubic feet and 100 cubic feet, respectively.
Power & Efficiency
Depending on whether you want extra power or better fuel efficiency, either of these models can suffice. The Equinox has better gas mileage because of its lighter frame, offering up to 39 mpg on the highway when equipped with its 1.6-liter turbo-diesel engine.* The Blazer’s best efficiency rating is 27 mpg on the highway.**
When it comes to capability, the Blazer is better off than the Equinox. That’s because of its more powerful engine. The Blazer can tow up to 4,500 pounds when properly equipped, while the Equinox can go up to 3,500 pounds.
