Vehicle News from Sri Lanka:
In terms of performance and handling, it is a sharp-looking SUV with Camaro-inspired design and more than appropriate technology that is somewhat weaker than its immediate competitors. But with the release of a fresh four-cylinder turbocharged engine for the 2020 Blazer, this could alter very quickly.
The engine in question is a 2.0-liter turbo with an estimated output of torque of 230 horsepower (172 kilowatts) and 258 pound-feet (350 Newton-metres). These figures placed it in the range-topping 3.6 V6 with 308 hp (230 kW) between the present entry-level powertrain, a 2.5-liter naturally-aspired four-banger. The new engine will be equipped with a nine-speed automatic gearbox and an engine start-stop function.
With either a normal front-wheel drive or an optional all-wheel drive, new Chevy Blazer offer will be accessible. The 2.0 turbo will come in 2LT and 3LT trim levels–the base L and LT will be restricted to the 2.5-liter base motor, while the RS and Premier range toppers will come with the V6 motor.
There are no fuel efficiency and price information yet, but it is likely a secure bet to say that the new powertrain will slot somewhere in the mid-$30,000 range, as reported by Car and Driver. Looking for something in the area of 23-24 miles per gallon coupled as far as fuel-economy figures are concerned, depending on what the other two motors return. Final figures should be published closer to the Blazer 2.0 turbo’s on-sale date, which is expected to reach dealerships this year in October.
