Has there been an mention as to whether or not the V6 in the RS variant has been tuned? I don't think many people are going to go for it, if its just some sporty accents that are being added.
The L will be powered by a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine and be available only with front-wheel drive.
The second-tier Blazer can be had with that same engine, which delivers 193 hp, or with a 3.6L V6 generating 305 hp. Buyers can also choose between the front-wheel drive and an all-wheel drive system.
As for the sportier, more dynamic RS trim, it is offered only with the V6, while offering the same choice of FWD or AWD drivetrain. For this version leather seats will be included standard.
Lastly, the top-end Premier variant will be powered by the V6 engine, and offer the same FWD/AWD choice to buyers. Leather seats will also be standard on this trim.
Take note that Chevrolet says the Blazer will have a maximum towing capacity of 2,040 kg, when equipped with the V6 engine.
