Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Telluride than in the Chevrolet Blazer, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Chevrolet Blazer and the Kia Telluride.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Blazer requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Kia Telluride, making it more convenient to drive.

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). Whether you pick the Chevrolet Blazer or the Kia Telluride, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Kia Telluride have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Blazer is much slimmer than the Kia Telluride, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Chevrolet Blazer is slightly shorter than the Kia Telluride, which may make it easier to park.

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

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

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

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

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Blazer is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Telluride.
