2021 GMC Terrain vs. 2021 Chevy Blazer: Performance & Efficiency

While towing capacity and engine output are important considerations, fuel efficiency is often a key factor for many Sherwood Park drivers like you. Although the Chevy Blazer comes with a more powerful base engine, it can’t compete when it comes to the fuel economy offered by the Terrain. Take a look at the Blazer vs. Terrain performance specs below:


Chevy Blazer

  • Base Engine: 2.0L Turbo 4-cylinder engine
  • Horsepower: 227 hp
  • Standard Drivetrain: AWD
  • City Fuel Economy: 10.6L/100 km
  • Highway Fuel Economy: 8.7 L/100 km

GMC Terrain

  • Base Engine: 1.5L turbo four-cylinder engine
  • Horsepower: 170 hp
  • Standard Drivetrain: FWD
  • City Fuel Economy: 9.2 L/100 km
  • Highway Fuel Economy: 7.8 L/100 km

We should note that the Blazer comes standard with all-wheel drive, while the Terrain gives you a choice between front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. The AWD Terrain with its fuel economy rating of 9.6 L/100 km on city streets and 8.3 L/100 km on the highway, is still more fuel efficient than the AWD Blazer.
