With its durable body-on-frame construction, off-road capabilities, a powerful V6 engine, high-level utility, a roomy and well-equipped interior, and a plethora of advanced multimedia and safety technologies, the 2020 Toyota 4Runner is ready for any of your adventures. One of the SUV competitors of the Toyota 4Runner is the Chevrolet Blazer. See how the two models stack up in this 2020 Toyota 4Runner vs 2020 Chevrolet Blazer comparison.
The 2020 Toyota 4Runner delivers excellent performance with its 4.0-liter DOHC V6 engine, which generates an output of 270 horsepower. This is a greater horsepower output than all of the engines that are offered for the 2020 Chevrolet Blazer, including the standard 2.5-liter 4-cylinder (188-hp), the available 2.0-liter turbo 4-cylinder (230-hp), and the available 3.6-liter DOHC V6 (270-hp). Also, with a shorter turning circle (37.4’ vs 38.7’), the 4Runner is more maneuverable than the Blazer.
While both vehicles offer an available traction-enhancing four-wheel drive system, the 4Runner is more suitable for off-road use. It has a higher ground clearance (9.6” vs 7.4”) than the Blazer, which makes it easier to navigate uneven terrain when heading off the beaten path. Also, unlike the Blazer, the 4Runner comes equipped with gas-charged stocks, while offering an available Active Sway Bar System.
Thousands of people die each year from drowsy-related automotive accidents, and to help alleviate this danger, the 4Runner has a Driver Alert Monitor feature, which sounds an alert if it detects inattentive driving. The Blazer doesn’t offer a similar feature.
One of the best ways to ensure that your vehicle runs smoothly is to follow its proper maintenance schedule. For the 4Runner, this is a financially feasible proposition, for it comes standard with 2-years/24,000-miles of complimentary scheduled maintenance. The Blazer only offers complimentary scheduled maintenance for the first maintenance visit.
The 4Runner is the roomier choice, with a 7-passenger seating capacity and a maximum cargo capacity of 89.7 cu-ft. The Blazer only has a 5-passenger seating capacity and a maximum cargo capacity of 64.2 cu-ft.
