Cutting to the chase, MT approves of the Blazer for reasons that real owners might. Its a short review but still a good read.

Review: https://www.motortrend.com/cars/chevrolet/blazer/2019/2019-chevrolet-blazer-premier-review/

After a week in the Blazer, I was seduced by the sporty exhaust note from the 3.6-liter V-6 in our all-wheel-drive Premier tester. The crossover had lots of power at the ready, with its 308 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. The base Blazer has a 193-hp, 188-lb-ft 2.5-liter inline-four-cylinder engine and is front-wheel drive only. Both are mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission.
The 2019 Blazer's interior smacks of Camaro as well. I like the large, in-your-face and intuitive air vents: you turn them to adjust the temperature. The cabin looks more practical than luxurious, with lots of plastic and standard-looking trim and materials even though the Premier, which starts at $43,895, is supposed to be the luxury counterpart to the sporty RS trim. The Blazer Premier's two-tone black and tan is attractive enough and there are heated and cooled seats, heated but plain steering wheel, and easily accessible USB ports for people in both rows. The infotainment screen is nicely integrated into the dash, graphics are crisp, and HVAC and other functional buttons are nicely displayed and intuitive to use.

on idle the v6 can be mistaken for a v8... from my observation and some friends that own american V8's but I think it still needs more grunt

Can't confirm that from my experience.
It sounds like a regular V6 to be but I haven't experienced many V8's and when I have they were much bigger and potent.
If someone throw on an aftermarket exhaust then that might change... slightly.
