Subaru Forester vs. Chevy Blazer
Do you hear the call of the wild around Mesquite, Rockwall, and Garland? You can kick up some dust with a capable compact SUV. The question is: Which one shares your sense of adventure?
At Norm Reeves Subaru Superstore Rockwall, we know both the Subaru Forester and the Chevy Blazer are great options, but when muddy trails and rocky shores stand between you and the fun, only one will get you to the other side. It’s the 2022 Subaru Forester vs. Chevy Blazer—let’s see which comes out on top!
Imagine it: You feel the slosh of mud beneath your feet as a cool breeze rolls through the trees. You just need an SUV with the capability to get you out there. Both models can be equipped with all-wheel drive, but only the 2022 Subaru Forester comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, so it’s ready for whatever obstacles lie ahead.
If you always end up taking the trail less traveled, maybe the Subaru Forester Wilderness is for you. This off-road-ready trim level comes with a litany of all-terrain performance features that you won’t get with the Chevy Blazer. They include:
- Enhanced 9.2 inches of ground clearance
- Front skid plate
- Dual-function X-MODE®
- 180-Degree Front-View Monitor
When you’re charting new paths, you need an efficient SUV that can go the distance. The Chevy Blazer offers a strong performance here with an EPA-estimated 22 city/29 highway MPG. The Forester, however, is a few steps ahead of the competition, boasting an EPA-estimated 26 city/33 highway MPG.1
What do you need on every road trip? Friends and family, of course! Both SUVs offer seating for five, so there’s plenty of room for your loved ones. A dual-zone automatic climate control is also available with both models, so everyone can stay cozy, regardless of the season.
Whether you’re right around the corner or way off the map, both the Forester and the Blazer will keep you connected to the world around you. Their infotainment systems are anchored by an available 8-inch touchscreen. It gives you command of:
- Apple CarPlay®
- Android Auto™
You’ll have lots of cargo space in both SUVs to pack up your bags, but what about all those souvenirs you collect along the way? Lower the rear seats to make room for your sweet treats, commemorative T-shirts, and handmade goodies. The Forester boasts up to 74.2 cubic feet compared to just 64.2 cubic feet in the Blazer.
Peace of mind is paramount in any compact SUV. Whether you’re flying solo or have the whole family in tow, both the 2022 Subaru Forester and the Chevy Blazer come standard with street-savvy safety technologies, including:
- Pre-collision Braking System
- Lane Departure Warning
- High Beam Assist
The DriverFocus® Distraction Mitigation System is only available with the Subaru Forester. It provides an alert if it detects drowsy or distracted driving. You can pull over and take a break or refocus on the ride.
Your mind will be at ease on the daily commute, thanks to Adaptive Cruise Control, which is available with both models. It’ll keep you moving forward at a variable speed to keep a safe distance between you and the vehicle ahead.
Both SUVs are great options for most drivers around Mesquite, Rockwall, and Garland. If you’re looking for an adventurous vehicle that’ll help you conquer both trails and city streets with confidence and courage, the 2022 Subaru Forester is the vehicle for you.
