Performance

Take a peek under the new 2022 Chevrolet Blazer’s hood and you’ll find one of two thrilling engines. The standard 2.0-liter turbocharged engine kicks out a zippy 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque and helps the Blazer achieve 27 mpg highway. The Blazer’s available 3.6-liter V-6 engine brings the thrills with 308 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. 

The new Chevy Blazer is available with all-wheel drive and features a Drive Mode Selector that allows you to adjust vehicle handling as necessary. Choose from up to five drive modes: tour for improved fuel efficiency, all-wheel drive for enhanced traction, tow/haul for extra force while towing, off-road for optimized throttle on rough terrain, and sport for added excitement. With the proper equipment, the new Chevy Blazer also has a 4,500-pound towing capacity. 

On the Nissan side of things, you’ll find only one engine under the new Murano’s hood. The 3.5-liter V-6 engine doesn’t offer nearly the same power as the Blazer’s V-6, delivering only 260 horsepower and 240 pound-feet of torque. Like the Blazer, the new Murano is available with all-wheel drive but it lacks the driver modes that the Chevy has. The new Nissan Murano also only has a 1,500-pound towing capacity, 3,000 pounds less than the Blazer. 

Advantage of the 2022 Chevrolet Blazer

  • Two engine options to choose from 
  • Offers five drive modes, including all-wheel drive
