The Chevrolet Blazer starts at around $29,000, placing it in the mid-sized SUV segment, but with a lower-than-average starting price. SUVs are by definition expected to be versatile and offer owners with a myriad of uses: hauling stuff, getting to work every day and driving through the woods on a weekend excursion. The Blazer has put an emphasis on this versatility with a clever interior that can be reconfigured, along with a ton of technology aimed at both making occupants more comfortable and at helping owners use the various utility features of the vehicle.
