2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs Chevrolet Blazer

Shopping for a new SUV can seem like a bumpy road, but it doesn't have to be. Of course, you want to find the SUV that's right for you, which is why we've taken two of the best SUVs on today's market and put them side by side. These two remarkable vehicles are the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Chevy Blazer. The Grand Cherokee features four potent engine options, a commanding road presence, and a comfortable interior. Meanwhile, the Blazer, which returned to the Chevy lineup after a 15-year hiatus in 2019, has a new, slimmed-down appearance and three engine options. Please continue reading below to see which SUV we recommend!

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Power & Handling

The engine lineup for the 2021 Grand Cherokee is big at the baseline, with a 295 horsepower 3.6L V6 that provides 260 lb-ft of torque. This engine alone provides plenty of power for everyday drivers. But if you prefer something with a little more go, you'll find what you're looking for with the 5.7L V8 that kicks out 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. If it's excitement you crave, the 6.4L HEMI V8 exclusively found in the SRT trim cranks out 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. Jeep could have stopped there, but the brand didn't get the popularity they have today by quitting while they're ahead. That's why the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk comes with a supercharged 6.2L V8 Hellcat engine that rips out an exhilarating 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. This beast runs a 3.5-second 0-60 time and beat the mighty Lamborghini Urus in a quarter-mile race! All four engines come mated to a robust TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission and a rear-wheel drivetrain. Four-wheel drive is available to all trim levels but standard on the Trailhawk, SRT, and Trackhawk.

2021 Chevrolet Blazer Power & Handling

Competing with the Grand Cherokee's four engines, the Blazer offers three. Standard under the hood is a 2.5L I4 engine that puts out a measly 193 horsepower and 188 lb-ft of torque. The available 2.0L turbocharged I4 is more intriguing with 277 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. If you want the most power from a Blazer, you'll find it exclusively in the top two trim levels, RS and Premier. These trims come with a 3.6L V6 engine that cranks out 308 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. While the top-tier V6 engine competes well with the Grand Cherokee's base engine, it's no match for the Grand Cherokee's entire powertrain lineup. A 9-speed automatic transmission drives the Blazer's front wheels. All-wheel drive is available to the turbocharged variants while standard on the V6 trim levels.

The extensive trim level lineup of the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee begins with the Laredo trim. The Grand Cherokee Laredo features a backup camera, heated side mirrors, blindspot monitoring, lane keep assist, 18-inch alloy wheels, a power-adjustable driver's seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 7-inch infotainment touchscreen, and Apple and Android smartphone integration. The mid-level trims, Limited, Overland, High Altitude, and Summit build on this with things like 19 or 20-inch alloy wheels, remote start, a single or dual-pane sunroof, Nappa leather upholstery, heated front seats, heated second-row seats, heated/ventilated front seats, a 19-speaker Harman-Kardon sound system, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, and more. The Trailhawk trim goes beyond the main roads with full-time 4x4, Quadra-Lift air suspension, Selec-Terrain traction management, skid plates, all-terrain tires, an electronic locking rear differential, and more. The high-performance Trackhawk features standard sport seats, paddle shifters, launch control, adaptive air suspension, a supercharged engine, and standard four-wheel drive.

2021 Chevrolet Blazer Features & Design

The Blazer L kicks off the lineup with cloth upholstery, an 8-inch infotainment touchscreen, smartphone integration, dual-zone automatic climate control, and 18-inch alloy wheels. It's worth noting that the only driver assistance feature that's standard on the Blazer is a backup camera. Mid-level trims, LT, 2LT, and 3LT feature heated side mirrors, a power sunroof, a power-adjustable driver's seat, heated front seats, leather upholstery, and 2-inch alloy wheels. In addition to the V6 engine, the Blazer RS gets standard all-wheel drive, navigation, 20-inch alloy wheels, and an 8-inch digital driver information display. Topping off the 2021 Chevy Blazer lineup is the Premier trim. This trim features ambient interior lighting, driver's side memory settings, a heated steering wheel, heated/ventilated front seats, and an 8-speaker Bose audio system.
