Byers Ford knows that Delaware, Marion, and Sunbury, OH, drivers want to make an informed decision when they purchase their next SUV.

To help you do that, we’ve put together this Ford Bronco vs. Chevy Blazer comparison. Find out which SUV you should take on your adventures.

Engine Performance

An important factor to consider is your engine choice. While you’re off-roading, more power and torque can help you tackle obstacles, and when you’re traveling on the road, it can help you merge.

The Chevy Blazer has three engine options to choose from. The standard EcoTec 2.5L engine offers 193 horsepower and 188 lb-ft of torque. You can get a little bit more power with the other two available engines offering, 227 horsepower and 308 horsepower respectively.

The Ford Bronco has two engines to choose from-both pretty powerful right from the get-go. The standard engine is a 2.3L EcoBoost® engine that puts out 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque, which is better than two out of the three Chevy engines. For an engine that beats all three, the available 2.7L EcoBoost® engine offers a whopping 310 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque.

Off-Road Capabilities

Off-roading is a blast, and to make it the best experience you can, it helps to have the right vehicle.

The Blazer has a few features to lend you a helping hand, like available all-wheel drive and the Driver Mode Selector. With it, you can choose between a few modes, like Off-Road and Sport.

However, the Blazer can’t keep up with the Bronco’s capabilities. The Bronco comes with bash plates to protect important vehicle parts, a High-Performance Off-Road Stability Suspension, and Advanced HOSS with Heavy-Duty Bilstein™ Position-Sensitive Dampers.

To top it all off, the Bronco also has a Terrain Management System™ with G.O.A.T. Modes™. There are eight available G.O.A.T. modes-Normal, Eco, Sport, Slippery, Mud/Ruts, Sand, Rock Crawl, and Baja.

Interior Dimensions and Cargo Space

Both the Blazer and the Bronco offer plenty of room for your cargo. However, if you’re heading out to camp in nature, you’ll want to have room for everything. The Blazer has a total of 64.2 cubic feet of cargo room. The Ford Bronco does even better with 83 cubic feet of cargo volume when you choose the 4-door model.

There is also plenty of room for passengers. Long-legged companions will be more comfortable in the Bronco with its 43.1 inches of legroom in the front row compared to the Blazer’s 41 inches of front legroom.  The Bronco also has more hip room in the front, 56.3 inches in the 2-door model and 55.9 inches in the 4-door model. The Blazer only has 55.6 inches of hip room in the front.
