The Blazer is available in six distinct trim levels, L, LT, RS and Premier, with several different equipment packages available on the LT trim. Power for the base model is provided by a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine making 193 hp while LT models receive a turbo-charged 2.0L 4-cylinder producing 230hp. An optional 3.6L V6 provides 308 hp and comes standard on the Premium and RS models, though it's also optional on the base model, provided the buyer springs for the correct option package. With each engine choice, power is sent to the wheels via a 9-speed automatic transmission. Front wheel drive is standard, but all-wheel drive is available and comes standard on any Blazer also equipped with the turbo 4 cylinder and the bigger V6. The Blazer is available with a ton of options, but even the most basic Blazer comes pretty-well equipped.
