Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Blazer than in the Nissan Pathfinder. The Nissan Pathfinder 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
The Chevrolet Blazer requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Nissan Pathfinder, 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).

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 Nissan Pathfinder have similar Destination Charges.
