2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs Chevy Blazer

The mid-size SUV segment is overflowing with options, all claiming to offer the best capability and comfort. And while many brands offer exceptional options, one brand stays far ahead of the pack. The Jeep Grand Cherokee has entered the 2022 model year with a complete redesign making way for more comfort, capability, and safety than ever before! Competing with the Grand Cherokee is the Chevy Blazer, offering a sporty appearance and some attractive features. Deciding between the two can be a tough decision to make, which is why we'd like to take a moment to compare and contrast these two impressive vehicles. Continue reading below to take a closer look at the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Chevy Blazer to help you decide which one is right for you!

2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee Power & Handling

The 2022 Grand Cherokee is available with three different engine options. The standard engine is a 3.6L V6 engine supplying a healthy 293 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, which sets a solid foundation. However, more power is available from the 5.7L V8 engine. To be exact, the V8 offers 375 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. New for the 2022 model year, the Grand Cherokee is eligible for Jeep's 4xe plug-in hybrid powertrain. The Grand Cherokee 4xe is available for the Limited, Overland, Trailhawk, and Summit trims. While offering 57 MPG and a total driving range of more than 440 miles, the Grand Cherokee 4xe also pumps out 375 horsepower and a whopping 470 lb-ft of torque. This is achieved by mating a turbocharged 2.0L I-4 engine to two electric motors powered by a 400-volt lithium-ion battery. An 8-speed automatic transmission powers the rear wheels as standard equipment. However, it wouldn't be a Jeep without the option of superior 4x4 capability. For the Grand Cherokee, this comes in the form of the Quadra-Trac I, Quadra-Trac II, and Quadra-Drive II 4x4 powertrains.

2022 Chevrolet Blazer Power & Handling

The 2022 Chevy Blazer is eligible for two engines, both offering ample power for basic everyday driving needs. A 2.0L turbocharged I-4 engine comes first, pushing out 227 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. For drivers searching for something a little more robust, the 3.6L V6 pushes out 308 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. The Blazer comes standard with a 9-speed automatic transmission powering a rear-wheel-drive system, while all-wheel drive is available for all trim levels. Unfortunately, while the all-wheel-drive system provides better all-weather handling, the Blazer can't take on off-road challenges like the Grand Cherokee 4x4 variants can.

2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee Features & Design

The Grand Cherokee was overhauled for the 2022 model year, getting a complete redesign inside and out. The exterior now features 17-inch alloy wheels, a wider seven-slot grille, newly standard LED headlights inside slim housings, a long hood, and tapered rooflines. Inside, the reconfigured center stack features an 8.4-inch Uconnect 5 infotainment touchscreen with faster operating speeds and more high-tech features than ever before. Additionally, drivers can customize the 10.25-inch digital driver information display screen to suit their preferences. Another standard feature is a full driver-assist suite that features full-speed forward collision warning, active lane management, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, blindspot monitoring, and rear cross-path detection. Other standard features include keyless entry, push-button start, LED headlights and taillights, heated/power-adjustable side mirrors, wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, dual-zone automatic climate control, an 8-way power driver's seat, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

2022 Chevrolet Blazer Features & Design

From the outside, the Blazer appears to be inspired by the Camaro. This is due to the aggressive front end, featuring a similar lighting profile with slim headlight housings and a large, bold grille. As you'll see throughout the exterior, the Blazer takes muscular body lines from the Camaro, continuing the aggressive theme. Upon entering the 2022 Chevy Blazer, you'll find an 8-inch touchscreen, Apple/Android smartphone integration, dual-zone automatic climate control, an 8-way power driver's seat, keyless entry/ignition, and the Chevy Safety Assist package. Chevy Safety Assist features forward collision alert, automatic emergency braking, following distance indicator, lane-keep assist, and automatic high beams.

Conclusion:

While the 2022 Chevrolet Blazer has an aggressive appearance and plenty of standard features, it simply cannot keep up with the 2022 Grand Cherokee and its extensive list of standard features inside and out and its available off-road prowess.
