Our Take on the Latest Model 2000 Chevrolet Blazer

2000 Chevrolet Blazer Reviews

Vehicle Overview
Chevy's midsize sport ute, a rival for mainstays such as the Ford Explorer and Jeep Grand Cherokee, has a revised lineup but no substantive changes for 2000. There is no longer a base trim level, and the lowest priced versions of both the two- and four-door models are designated LS.

Trim upgrades are, to a certain extent, dependent on how many doors you want or will settle for. For example, a ZR2 off-road package is available on the two-door. If you want a nonsport, better-equipped trim than the LS, you can upgrade to the LT trim, but only on the four-door. The four-door also has a sport trim package — the Trailblazer — but it is described as a sport/luxury trim package.

General Motors offers twins of the Blazer in a number of its makes: GMC offers the same vehicle in two- and four-door guise as the Jimmy, and Oldsmobile has a four-door version called the Bravada. GMC also offers the Envoy, a luxury four-door.

Interior
The four-door, which accounts for the bulk of Blazer sales, has split-bench seats front and rear for six-passenger capacity. LT and TrailBlazer trims come with front buckets, and leather is standard on the TrailBlazer, optional on the LT. The TrailBlazer is the only model on which a floor-mounted automatic transmission lever is available.

Front buckets and cloth upholstery are your only choices on the two-door. With seven inches more wheelbase and overall length, the four-door has a roomier rear seat and more cargo space (74 cubic feet vs. 67 cubic feet).

Exterior
Consumers have a choice on both two- and four-door models of either a liftgate that swings up or a tailgate that drops down. With either, the rear window opens separately and flips up. The spare tire is stored beneath the rear of the vehicle, which has advantages over other options but makes tire changes more awkward.

Under the Hood
All models come with a 190-horsepower, 4.3-liter V-6. A manual transmission is standard on the two-door and automatic is optional. On the four-doors, automatic is standard.

Two 4WD systems are available. Insta-Trac is standard on LS 4 x 4s and is engaged by a dashboard switch. Autotrac is standard on other 4 x 4s and automatically engages when more traction is needed.

I Love My Blazer

by Eddie Chevy from on October 2, 2016

I bought my used 2000 Blazer LT as a secondary vehicle for winter (I also own a 2002 Monte Carlo SS), and I love it. It had 126,000 miles on it last year, and so far I have added another 10,000 miles... Read Full Review

Learn More About Warranties

Warranties Explained

Bumper-to-Bumper

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

Powertrain

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

Roadside Assistance

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
