Features of the 2021 Chevy Blazer
Below are some of the features the 2021 Blazer has to offer.
The interior design of the 2021 Blazer looks pretty much like that of the 2021 Camaro, not very original. For example, the way you adjust the climate control is precisely the same (twisting the climate vent left or right).
The buttons above the climate vents, the controls for changing the fan’s speed, the small hexagon screen, the low dashboard; the designs are all from the Camaro. The seats in the Blazer are made of leather upholstery.
Front seat passengers have access to heated and ventilated seats, while the backseat passengers have access to the former. The backseat is spacious enough for passengers to have a comfortable ride with the space of 31 cubic feet (seats unfolded) and 64 cubic feet (seats folded).
This is small when compared to other mid-size SUVs. There are spaces in the vehicle to store small items that cannot be put in the cargo area, such as the ledges on the front doors. This is perfect for keeping your phone.
An 8-inch user-friendly touchscreen above the center console allows Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. USB ports can also be found in both the front seats and backseats to charge phones and other devices. A 120-volt outlet can be located depending on the model.
Other interior designs are the keyless entry, starting of the vehicle with a button, a dual-zone automatic climate control, satellite radio, rearview camera, a panoramic sunroof, etc.
The exterior design also mimics that of the Camaro. From the erect A-pillar by the windshield to the tip line, which curves to the back, the grill shape at the vehicle’s front to the narrow headlights, all from the Camaro.
The Blazer has tiny back windows, also borrowed from the Camaro. It seems like the whole exterior and interior design was taken from the Camaro.
It features a bold and aggressive exterior design; high-intensity discharge headlights that automatically go on and off, aluminum wheels, LED running lights (daytime), taillight, and a tinted rear window.
The cargo area has a sliding fence and a floor-mounted rail that helps to keep your items safe. There is access to a hands-free lift-gate. If you have a load more enormous than the average size of your cargo area, release the levers situated in the cargo area, which creates a flat load floor.
The Chevy Blazer is the perfect car for a small family or for running errands as its space accommodates just that, a five-seat mid-size SUV. It offers safety features such as front pedestrian detection, forward-collision warning, automated emergency braking, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, etc.
