Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited than in the Chevrolet Blazer, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 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 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, 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 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Blazer carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Blazer is much wider than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Blazer takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Chevrolet Blazer and the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Chevrolet Blazer has a smaller turning radius than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is clearly the choice over the Chevrolet Blazer for pulling heavy loads. The Chevrolet Blazer has a little more horsepower than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Blazer and the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. The Chevrolet Blazer has less cargo space than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Blazer comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.
