Safety features offered for the 2021 Blazer
For most trims of the 2021 Blazer, the Chevrolet Safety Assist package now comes standard, giving you more peace of mind on each drive. For both the 2019 and 2020 model years, the features of the package were offered in the optional Driver Confidence II Package or Enhanced Convenience and Driver Confidence II Package. As such, you had to pay extra for the features.
Included in the Chevrolet Safety Assist package is Automatic Emergency Braking, Following Distance Indicator, Forward Collision Alert, Front Pedestrian Braking, IntelliBeam, and Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning. While these systems were only available for the RS and Premier trims of the 2020 Blazer, they are now standard on almost every trim of the 2021 model (except the L or 1LT trims).
The 2021 Blazer also has a Convenience and Driver Confidence Package, which is standard for the 3LT, RS, and Premier trims and available for the 1LT and 2LT trims. This package consists of Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Park Assist with Audible Warning, and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. These features have the same availability on the 2021 Blazer as they did for the 2020 model.
Another optional package for the 2021 Blazer RS and Premier is the Driver Confidence II Package, which now includes Adaptive Cruise Control, Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking, HD Surround Vision, LED Headlamps, the Rear Camera Mirror, the Safety Alert Seat, and Wireless Smartphone Charging.
