According to GM Authority writer Alex Luft, the 2020 Blazer may feature an available 2.0-liter I-4 LSY motor. Currently, buyers have two engine options on the 2019 Blazer. The standard option is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission, which generates 193 horsepower and 188 lb-ft of torque. The available 3.6-liter V6, also paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission puts out 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque.
The 2.0-liter I-4 LSY option to the 2020 Blazer choice of engines is probably inspired by the GMC Acadia’s already announced engine addition to its 2020 model, reports Luft.
“The LSY engine is GM’s newest turbo-charged 2.0L engine succeeding the 2.0L LTG. It uses an innovative tripower valvetrain and dual-scroll turbocharging technologies to help optimize performance and efficiency in all driving conditions,” writes Luft. “The tripower valvetrain complements the turbocharging system to make the most of the engine’s available power at all speeds, while the turbo is a dual-scroll design developed to enhance low-speed torque delivery. Peak torque is available from 1,500 to 4,000 rpm, for a significantly exceptional feeling of responsiveness.”

In addition to powertrain speculation, the 2020 Chevy Blazer has also warranted rumors that GM will reveal a three-row version of the popular SUV, inspired by the Chevrolet FNR-CarryAll Concept vehicle. The three-row-equipped model, which delivers seating for seven, is reportedly the Blazer XL.
“The future Blazer XL will be Chevrolet’s largest global crossover utility vehicle, ideal for regions and countries where the Chevy Traverse not sold because it is simply too large,” reports GM Authority writer Deivis Centeno.
