J.D. Power recently named the 2020 Chevy Blazer the best mid-size SUV as part of this year’s APEAL Study. The J.D. Power APEAL (or Automotive Performance, Execution, and Layout) Study helps customers find the right vehicle by rating 37 attributes, from luxury and comfort to acceleration. Don’t just take our word for it — the Blazer is the ideal vehicle for a wide range of drivers.
In order to perform the study, J.D. Power evaluates vehicles
based on customer satisfaction over the first 90 days of ownership. For the
2020 study, the brand considered feedback from over 87,000 people who owned a
2020 Blazer. Beating out competitors such as the Nissan Murano and Hyundai
Santa Fe, the Chevy Blazer scored particularly well thanks to its exterior
design, sporty RS trim level, towing capabilities, versatile seating, and
spacious cargo area.
“Purchasing the ‘right’ vehicle is influenced by a variety
of factors, depending on each buyer’s specific tastes, wants and needs,”
said Dave Sargent, vice president of automotive quality at J.D.
Power. “The APEAL Study measures an owner’s emotional attachment to their new
vehicle and in what areas that vehicle may not be delivering on all of the positive
experiences that were hoped for.”
The Chevy Blazer comes with several features to set it apart,
including the exterior, which borrows design cues from the Chevy Camaro, and up
to 4,500 pounds in maximum towing. This model also has available leather trim,
and the RS has black and red accents and a bold mesh grille design. Plus, with over
64 cubic feet of cargo volume and an adjustable cargo fence, you’ll always have
