Specs at a Glance

The 2019 models of the Blazer and the Tahoe are both capable SUVS that handle well on the road. The Blazer has two rows of seating with room for up to five, whereas the Tahoe has three rows of seating and has a maximum seating capacity of nine passengers.

Performance

The lower trims of the Chevy Blazer come standard with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, but an enhanced V6 engine with a displacement of 3.6 liters is also available. At the higher trims, the V6 becomes a standard component. That 3.6L engine has 308 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque, with the 2.5L engine achieving 193 horsepower and 188 pound-feet of torque. There are slight differences in the fuel economy, with the larger engine getting 20/26 mpg and the smaller one getting 22/27 mpg. If you plan on heading out in slippery conditions, the 3.6L can come with all-wheel drive.

In the Tahoe, the engine is definitely more powerful. This vehicle can either run on a 5.3-liter V8 or a 6.2-liter V8. The 5.3L model has 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque; the other comes with 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. For fuel economy, the 5.3L gets an estimated 15/21 mpg and the other gets an estimated 14/23 mpg. 2WD and 4WD are available on both models.

Appearance

As a mid-size sedan, the Blazer is much more compact that the Tahoe. It's been redesigned with bold angles and sophisticated stylings. In the front, the iconic Chevy symbol is a highlight on the grille, between sleek, ultra-thin LED daytime running lamps. Overall, the SUV measures 191.4 inches from front to back, and it stands 67 inches tall.

There's no doubt that the Tahoe is a large SUV, and it feels and acts like it's one of the kings on the road. It's noticeably longer than the Blazer, at 204 inches in length and 74 inches in height. The vehicle has strong lines and a wide stance, and with a bold front fascia, it attracts a lot of positive attention.

Features

While the Blazer might not offer as much room as the Tahoe, there are still many storage options in the 64.2 cubic feet of cargo space. The 60/40 split bench can be folded completely down, or just part of it can be lowered to accommodate larger objects. Plus, the Cargo Management System is an available option that can keep everything secure in the back.

In comparison, the Tahoe has much more cargo space, at 94.7 cubic feet. If you need to carry even more equipment with you, you can outfit your Tahoe with a trailering package and take advantage of the maximum towing capacity of 8,600 pounds. The Tahoe is one of the go-to options if you're in need of strength. At the same time, the ride is smooth, and all the passengers can benefit from the audio system and smartphone connectivity. A Rear-Seat Entertainment System with Blu-Ray is an optional add-on.
