In recent months, one of the most talked about pieces of news at our Peoria Chevy dealership has been the reintroduction of the Chevy Blazer to the brand's SUV lineup, and part of the reason so many around Washington, IL can't stop talking about it has to do with the Chevy Blazer's performance. While an SUV, the new Blazer stays true to its name with a powerful yet easy to control driving feel that can get the driver's pulse up and adapt to the different driving situations they often find themselves in. We've highlighted the performance of the new Chevy Blazer below, so read all about the sporty SUV!

What Performance Aspects of the New Chevy Blazer Make it a Joy to Drive?

The Chevy Blazer has two engines for car shoppers to choose from, but for those Pekin drivers wanting the most power, the V6 engine is a natural choice. The Blazer V6 has specs of 308 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque while still getting up to 26 mpg highway thanks to the 9-speed automatic transmission, which also makes sure your acceleration and gear shifts are smooth even if you're using the 4,500-pound max towing capacity of the Chevy Blazer.

Morton drivers will also be happy to know that the Chevy Blazer offers all-wheel drive, and it's switchable so that you can change to two-wheel drive when in ideal conditions and craving better efficiency. Plus, the drive mode select program is another way you can adjust your Chevy Blazer performance with the turn of a dial as it lets you choose from modes such as tow/haul/ sport, off-road, and snow.

There are many other features and technologies to enjoy in the new Chevy Blazer, and you can learn all about those at our Chevy dealership serving East Peoria and beyond!
