Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Blazer offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Chevrolet Traverse, with comparable head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Traverse will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Blazer.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Blazer as you will with the Chevrolet Traverse, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Blazer will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Chevrolet Traverse. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Chevrolet Blazer and the Chevrolet Traverse have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Blazer is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Traverse, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Chevrolet Blazer, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chevrolet Traverse.

Handling
The Chevrolet Blazer has the same turning radius as the Chevrolet Traverse, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Blazer has a lot less horsepower than the Chevrolet Traverse.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Chevrolet Blazer does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Chevrolet Traverse.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Chevrolet Blazer seats a lot fewer people than the Chevrolet Traverse. The Chevrolet Blazer has significantly less cargo capacity than the Chevrolet Traverse.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Blazer comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Chevrolet Traverse.
